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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
