Surprisingly, the most disappointing thing about Captain Marvel is Captain Marvel herself.

A plain, lazy and insipid entry. [Full Review in Spanish]
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

The screenplay would rather see Larson be stoic than human. She has a movie stars squint and a charisma that melts the screen, but the character, despite amiable virtue, isn't particularly relatable... there's nothing super about her.

Why praise a movie that panders (with a symbolic pat on the head) to the audience it is supposed to empower?

The feature's gender politics feel like a bit of a pose: too superficial to convey the source material's fiercely feminist mythology, and too desperate for applause for it to be regarded as sincere.

March 10, 2019
Thoroughly unremarkable, Captain Marvel wanders aimlessly through various half-baked plotlines without ever investing in its title character.
March 7, 2019
While noticeable out of their element, indie stalwarts Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck recognize the easy rapport between Brie Larson and Samuel L. Jackson is their best asset.

"A bit of a misstep at a very crucial time."
Full Review | Original Score: 5.3/10
March 7, 2019
As it is, Captain Marvel is more a reminder of Marvel's early work (think the first Captain America or Thor) than its more recent output (Black Panther or Infinity War).
March 22, 2019
They really tried to cram it all in...boring, generic, by-the-book, which is unfortunate for Marvel's first female-lead movie.

The characters display recognisable humanity which is the film's balance but not often enough or convincingly. There's something dark and empty in all the fanfare and fuss, and it seems aimed solely at an audience that grew up in video arcades.
March 12, 2019
There's not enough on the page... it's only two hours long and they kind of rushed through it.
March 12, 2019
This could have been The Usual Suspects or Momento of Marvel but... they don't develop the character in an origin film.
March 8, 2019
This is more of the same, and frankly, it's getting boring.
Full Review | Original Score: C-
March 7, 2019
It doesn't help that Captain Marvel adopts a whole slew of the MCU's other problems, from an underdeveloped villain to an avalanche lifeless CGI action.

We may learn Vers' true name and how she came to be a Kree warrior but we never learn enough about who she is, flaws and all, to make her anything more than another interchangeable hero in a shiny suit.
March 5, 2019
[The] filmmakers think that in order to make someone look strong, you need to make them emotionless, and I just don't agree.
March 14, 2019
It was lacking, a bit flat, and I'm honestly concerned about how she will enter the Marvel Cinematic Universe...it's so concerned with being a feminist film that it forgets how to be a superhero movie.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

The film stands only as one more step to Endgame and nothing more. [Full Review in Spanish]
March 11, 2019
The first Marvel woman to show signs of heroism is given little more than a proton blast to develop her personality.
