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.

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]

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.

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.

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.

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.

Larson's energy makes Captain Marvel, whether she's pummeling villains with her self-satisfied smirk or radiating light in space like a blazing spectre.
March 14, 2019
Anyone who saw Larson's finely wrought work in The United States of Tara knows she is equally adept at drama and comedy and Carol Danvers is allowed both, a rarity in this universe.
March 14, 2019
It's damn fun to see Larson as a hero coming into her own, complete with 90s staples that includes a great soundtrack and references to Blockbuster, but it's hard to get truly invested since we know so little about Carol.

This prequel has a sturdy gaze, forward.
March 14, 2019
Captain Marvel could have floundered under the storytelling load it was asked to shoulder, but instead manages to (mostly) soar...a worthy choice as Phase 3's penultimate offering.

A fun throwback with some nice work from Brie Larson and Samuel L. Jackson, as well as a great way to get audiences jazzed up for next month's big Avenger finale.

Captain Marvel is a film you should be proud to let your children watch. It will inspire them to understand there should be no limits on what women can achieve
