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.

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.
March 13, 2019
An almost impenetrable slog of pulp sci-fi notions of intergalactic wars and an amnesiac supersoldier, expressed without a modicum of camp or passion.
March 12, 2019
Why praise a movie that panders (with a symbolic pat on the head) to the audience it is supposed to empower?
March 12, 2019
The problem is with the corporate anticulture that controls these productions-and the fandom-targeted demagogy that they're made to fulfill-which responsible casting can't overcome alone.
March 12, 2019
Marvel films should be allowed to be mediocre and confusing, but if you are invested in how Hollywood-and superhero franchises in particular-represents female characters, then the stakes of these films shift a little.
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 12, 2019
There's not enough on the page... it's only two hours long and they kind of rushed through it.

A plain, lazy and insipid entry. [Full Review in Spanish]
March 11, 2019
It's hard to see that anyone will think this is one of the better entries into the Marvel universe.
March 11, 2019
It's the entertainment industry turned into merchandise. [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.
March 11, 2019
Lacking the wit and graphic oomph that sometimes rescues the Marvel franchise from terminal fatigue, "Captain Marvel" is yet another origin story for yet another superhero.
March 11, 2019
If Captain Marvel had been lovingly crafted and shot with style, perhaps the void at its heart would have mattered less. But Larson's fighter pilot, turned galactic defender, is the central character a characterless movie deserves.
March 10, 2019
Thoroughly unremarkable, Captain Marvel wanders aimlessly through various half-baked plotlines without ever investing in its title character.
March 9, 2019
It really all comes down to the ho-hum writing. It's far from the worst film in the MCU, but don't be surprised if you find yourself not getting as invested as usual, or if the film ends up fading from memory faster than others.
March 9, 2019
While not the worst of the MCU, CAPTAIN MARVEL is so much less than it should've been. Even Goose the Flerken can't save it from a lacking lead performance, dull action, awful VFX, and a clichéd, amateurish script.
March 9, 2019
The search for a weapon lost by all and the identity of the titular captain are the pretexts for an interplanetary back and forth and... special but monotonous effects. [Full Review in Spanish]
March 9, 2019
It feels like a stepping-stone movie, not the powerful one we hoped for.
March 9, 2019
Some aesthetic and narrative reluctance makes the film seem more like a rushed production to present the character before Avengers: Endgame. [Full Review in Spanish]
