This nonlinear narrative adds interest beyond your typical origin story, but it's quickly overwhelmed by the same shtick that's in all these movies-uncompelling action sequences, recycled villains and flat direction.

The production and release of Captain Marvel, the new science fiction superhero adventure from Marvel and Disney, has a number of remarkable features, but none of them involve the film's drama, action or characters.

The movie doesn't go far enough in any direction, grounding itself in a mildly entertaining but surprisingly passé center.

The direction is boring, the acting is boring, the writing is boring...this is pretty boring.

Sometimes it stumbles upon the dullest components of a generic formula that is at the service of nonsense. [Full review in Spanish]

After all, Captain Marvel is a Marvel Studios film with significant ties to the U.S. military. While it's nominally critical of war, its hands are filthy with government propaganda.

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.

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.

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.
