The movie's central premise asks: Who is this person? I'm not sure we get more than a superficial answer.

The first half hour of Captain Marvel feels disjointed and poorly developed in part because you're dumped into an alien culture you know nothing about, which you see from the perspective of a woman who has no memories and doesn't know who she is.

It's hard to remember Captain Marvel because it was boring.

Women and fans of female heroes deserved better than Captain Marvel (a mediocre entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe) but there's no denying that it's rousing to see a woman triumph within the context of this heretofore excessively masculine universe.

The latest Marvel release is being positioned less as an actual film and more a wokeness bargaining chip for social media debate.

A very expository script, that makes use of flashbacks, with a poor representation of a period, telling a story that is not exactly memorable. [Full Review in Spanish]

The backstory segments, which eat up the first third, are arduous, challenging your patience and viewer endurance.

...just another generic, cookie-cutter comic-book movie that brings virtually nothing new to the table.

Marvel gave a pretty mediocre answer to DC's Wonder Woman with this film but at least the cat was cool.

There's no shortage of action scenes but they're heavy on special effects and light on emotional resonance.
April 4, 2019
Where DC's "Wonder Woman" movie had intelligence and verve to spare, "Captain Marvel" slumps down comfortably into tired origin story clichés.

Samuel L. Jackson provides 99 percent of the chuckles here, but then, he does that in just about any movie he's in. Why is this movie suddenly a financial blockbuster? The only blockbuster-ness it warrants is the one Captain Marvel crash-lands in.

They really tried to cram it all in...boring, generic, by-the-book, which is unfortunate for Marvel's first female-lead movie.
March 21, 2019
Lacking a unifying vision and a charismatic star performance, this film is less a big-screen comic than a patchwork quilt.
March 21, 2019
Captain Marvel gives political cartoons a bad name.
March 18, 2019
The film stands only as one more step to Endgame and nothing more. [Full Review in Spanish]
March 16, 2019
It's a film that aims to show-off its girl power, and does so with mixed results.
March 16, 2019
Brie Larson seems oddly detached from the proceedings.
March 16, 2019
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.
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.
