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 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.

For Marvel there's a new boss in town.

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.
March 8, 2019
Superhero cinema has lectured us, ad infinitum, on the responsibility that is conferred by extraordinary gifts. Praise be to Larson, for reminding us that they can be bringers of fun.

Carol Danvers, aka Captain Marvel, is a formidable force and a welcome addition to the MCU.

The breakout character of "Captain Marvel" may wind up being an adorable cat named Goose, whose cuteness seems destined to launch thousands of social media posts.
March 8, 2019
In the grand scheme of the Marvel Universe, however, "Captain Marvel" feels like a supporting player, not a featured attraction.

Captain Marvel may be good enough to satisfy the series' built-in audience, but might disappoint anyone expecting more.
March 7, 2019
The film looks great on an IMAX screen, Larson is sublime and the fantastical plot is buoyed throughout with lots of good-natured humour - reason enough to wish a return engagement for Captain Marvel.
March 7, 2019
Captain Marvel is such a welcome and appealing addition to the Marvel universe that I wish she could be added, retroactively, to all of the extant "Avengers" movies.

This woman is a candidate for genuine heroism. Yet there's a fundamental dissonance between the depth of her plight and the shallow disorganization of the script...
March 7, 2019
Larson can turn a moment as slight as walking into frame and blowing a strand of hair out of her face into an uproarious, powerful visual beat.
March 6, 2019
At full strength... Captain Marvel is a goddess emitting her own light - an astral version of Liberty at the battlements, sublime and terrifying.
March 6, 2019
Without making a fuss, it's a movie about regaining oneself and one's values in a universe where the boys are busy fighting.
March 6, 2019
While it may be a Marvel movie, it shares a deeper spiritual DNA with movies like Memento and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, than it does, say, Ant-Man.
March 6, 2019
Bizarrely, Captain Marvel is less interested in fleshing out its own hero than it is in filling in the blanks of the MCU.
March 6, 2019
This plays like the kind of generic comic book movie that was in vogue 15 years ago.
March 6, 2019
The girl power (and grrl power) ring out loud and clear, if a bit hollow.
