The chemistry between Larson and Lynch propels the last half of the movie; Lynch brings depth, love, and believability to Maria.

"Captain Marvel" has things going for it that elevate it a bit above the pack and provide more cultural oomph and import, but despite that, this is also a Marvel movie that feels like another Marvel movie.

I like this character and I like this movie. Bri [Larson] is a square-jawed badass.

Lacking a unifying vision and a charismatic star performance, this film is less a big-screen comic than a patchwork quilt.

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

A hugely enjoyable, funny and masterfully put together offering from Marvel and Disney.

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.

I thought it was perfectly fine.

Given the unholy mess of Carol's continuity, the film's multi-authored script makes a fair fist of delivering fragments of backstory as recovered memory.

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.

The main strength is a core of female friendship: Carol Danvers is the only Marvel hero you could imagine getting hammered and belting out songs by No Doubt.

For Marvel there's a new boss in town.

As a parent, I wish a film like this had been made when my daughter was young. In Captain Marvel, Brie Larson plays a woman who comes to learn that the most important power she possesses has been inside her all along

A slow start, but once the movie got going, it left me breathless.

It feels like a stepping-stone movie, not the powerful one we hoped for.

Captain Marvel succeeds not only as an introduction to a new Marvel hero but as a time at the movies that is consistently interested in what it feels like to be a girl and a woman.

It will be interesting to see, now that this origin story is done and dusted, what Captain Marvel does next.

A perfectly fine Marvel installment that I can't fathom deeply loving or hating, although I'm sure many viewers will manage to do both.

The film may be about women breaking their shackles, but the lead actress feels kept in check for much of the picture. Humor winds up being provided by Samuel Jackson's Nick Fury, heart by Lashana Lynch's Maria Rambeau, and pathos by...well, it ain't Larson

Does it work? The short answer is: yes. There's enough to keep both diehard Marvel fans and newcomers engaged.
