Without the input from female writers/directors like Anna Boden, this film would not have resonated so much. Its subtle and not so subtle nuances required its creators to understand how it feels to live under an oppressive thumb in every facet of life.

They really tried to cram it all in...boring, generic, by-the-book, which is unfortunate for Marvel's first female-lead movie.

Larson creates from whole cloth a recognizable template of unsinkable feminine swagger.

The film isn't the marvel that's been sold, but it certainly inspires more interest in future films. [Full Review in Spanish]

Lacking a unifying vision and a charismatic star performance, this film is less a big-screen comic than a patchwork quilt.

Captain Marvel gives political cartoons a bad name.

I never really like the big ensemble Marvel films, but I often enjoy their standalone movies, and this was no exception. In fact, I loved it.

Captain Marvel is about Carol - it's not about saving the world, though that happens along the way. The antagonist, a brilliantly cast Ben Mendelsohn, is not the problem. Something much bigger - and subtler - is.

This is a new kind of female superhero, one who is fully comfortable in her own skin -- a funny, casual, wise cracking, cocky superhero. She's not overly serious, stiff, formal, or straining under destiny's weight. Instead, she's just fun to watch.

The film stands only as one more step to Endgame and nothing more. [Full Review in Spanish]

Captain Marvel almost has it all: excitement, wit, plot twists, multi-faceted villains and stunning visual effects. What it doesn't have is the gravitas of a Wonder Woman.
March 16, 2019
Ignore those imbecilic MRAs, frightened fanboys, and all other insecure man-babies shellacked in misogyny: The truth is that this film is reams of fun and, significantly, no different in quality from past solo superhero flicks produced by Marvel.

It's a film that aims to show-off its girl power, and does so with mixed results.

Brie Larson seems oddly detached from the proceedings.

Captain Marvel is an unremarkable, passable time killer...[Brie] Larson's performance is wooden...while the film's big action scenes are so lacking in imagination the screen often looks as though it's being continually doused in technicolour vomit.

Another star is glowing in the Marvel Universe.
March 15, 2019
The MCU introduces a bright, brilliant light to their universe. Captain Marvel is a complete triumph, with wit, spectacle and a sense of wonder which gives the MCU's future a compelling trajectory.

Larson shines, as she's made the independently strong character her own -- serving as a role model to all young girls worldwide -- however, the scenes between her and a younger eyepatch-less Fury are my favorite.

By setting Captain Marvel in the 90s, the filmmakers did a disservice to the importance Captain Marvel can play in the larger MCU and instead gave us a forgettable origin movie-lite.
