Captain Marvel has given us an engaging female character that does not come off as an empty 'agenda'. Larson's magnetic performance paired with an entertaining buddy-cop romp and some character moments makes this another strong entry into the MCU.
Captain Marvel is a perfectly decent mid-tier superhero romp with some uplifting and positive female messaging in the second half... For a movie, and a character, carrying some serious expectations, it's a little bit of a disappointment.
You could ding it for convoluted plotting and a retro style that flattens the usual Marvel fireworks. But a dynamite Brie Larson gives hell to cosmic villains and sexist trolls. And an orange feline named Goose is the best movie cat ever!
