One of Marvel's most layered films, which only gets more enjoyable on the rewatch.

Brie Larson packs a punch as one of Marvel's great new heroes.

There's a significant amount of time dedicated to an entire alien race, and for a cinematic universe that first introduced space seven years ago, it's refreshing to learn more about the races of the MCU...

Danvers' fish-out-of-water story that occurs when she lands back on earth is where this movie starts to hit its stride.

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

It's a middle-tier Marvel movie. And yet I liked it a lot more than that label implies. Brie Larson, Ben Mendelsohn, and Samuel L. Jackson are so much fun to watch. Carol Danvers is so cool.

Captain Marvel packages this dilemma in a stylish, thoughtful and funny superhero movie that's a twist on the usual origin story formula.
September 20, 2019
I like this character and I like this movie. Bri [Larson] is a square-jawed badass.

...what it lacks in wonder and awe-inducing moments it makes up for in warmth and heart and a strong sense of who Captain Marvel is and where she's going.

Brie Larson soars as Captain Marvel in this uneven but enjoyable origin story and while there's definitely room for improvement as the character's adventures continue, it's a good start and well worth checking out.

I just wanted a more cohesively meaningful experience that's all - without the hollow '90s button pushing and with more cinematic oxygen for Brie Larson to breathe in.

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.

I wanted to LOVE Captain Marvel. I really did. And there was a lot to enjoy, but after all is said and done, I feel a bit underwhelmed. But I did love the Flerken / aka Goose the cat.

Captain Marvel centers a white protagonist but offers significantly more fleshed-out roles for Fury and Maria that rise above sidekick status.

After 11 years, a cynic could argue Marvel Studios is almost over-compensating for a lack of a female heroine. But you can't argue with the results - fun, action-packed and empowering, Captain Marvel is the girl power film the MCU needs.

Captain Marvel manages to juggle being several different kinds of films at once, and the balancing act, combined with stellar performances and its unique lead hero, make a film nothing short of a triumph.
August 15, 2019
It's hard to remember Captain Marvel because it was boring.
August 8, 2019
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.
July 30, 2019
Captain Marvel is a fun, corny, and empowering origin story that feels like a bridge between the past and the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
July 17, 2019
The latest Marvel release is being positioned less as an actual film and more a wokeness bargaining chip for social media debate.
