The problem is with the corporate anticulture that controls these productions-and the fandom-targeted demagogy that they're made to fulfill-which responsible casting can't overcome alone.

Lacking the wit and graphic oomph that sometimes rescues the Marvel franchise from terminal fatigue, "Captain Marvel" is yet another origin story for yet another superhero.

For Marvel there's a new boss in town.

The film may be about women breaking their shackles, but the lead actress feels kept in check for much of the picture. Humor winds up being provided by Samuel Jackson's Nick Fury, heart by Lashana Lynch's Maria Rambeau, and pathos by...well, it ain't Larson

Does it work? The short answer is: yes. There's enough to keep both diehard Marvel fans and newcomers engaged.

Superhero cinema has lectured us, ad infinitum, on the responsibility that is conferred by extraordinary gifts. Praise be to Larson, for reminding us that they can be bringers of fun.

Captain Marvel centers a white protagonist but offers significantly more fleshed-out roles for Fury and Maria that rise above sidekick status.

After 11 years, a cynic could argue Marvel Studios is almost over-compensating for a lack of a female heroine. But you can't argue with the results - fun, action-packed and empowering, Captain Marvel is the girl power film the MCU needs.

Captain Marvel manages to juggle being several different kinds of films at once, and the balancing act, combined with stellar performances and its unique lead hero, make a film nothing short of a triumph.
August 15, 2019
It's hard to remember Captain Marvel because it was boring.

Women and fans of female heroes deserved better than Captain Marvel (a mediocre entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe) but there's no denying that it's rousing to see a woman triumph within the context of this heretofore excessively masculine universe.

Captain Marvel is a fun, corny, and empowering origin story that feels like a bridge between the past and the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The latest Marvel release is being positioned less as an actual film and more a wokeness bargaining chip for social media debate.

CAPTAIN MARVEL isn't bad but it isn't great. It has some excellent moments, terrific performances, and solid lines of dialogue...audiences should look forward to more adventures with Captain Marvel - but here's to hoping she soars better in those.

Brie Larson as Captain Marvel is amazing from the get-go. She embodies the character in the way she carries herself, the confidence, the poise is infectious.
July 10, 2019
It's a fun movie with some great Nick Fury moments.

Larson is a great casting choice to play Danvers/Captain Marvel. She has an air of power with a soft femininity underneath and a sarcastic wit.

As an action movie, Captain Marvel is really clever, with more than a few twists that'll surprise both comics fans and newcomers...the biggest problem then, is that Captain Marvel is doing so much, we don't actually get to know her all that well.

It works spectacularly as a feminist text, in which a woman steps out from a patriarchal shadow and challenges a sexist male mentor in the process.
June 18, 2019
There is a fresh, creative heartbeat pumping at the center of Captain Marvel that wills it into being something special, even if it could have been somewhat more so.
