Movie Reviews

  • this isn't the greatest Marvel movie ever made, but it's definitely one of the funniest -- and one of the sweetest. Brie Larson and Samuel L. Jackson have terrific buddy-movie chemistry; "Captain Marvel" is a fun '90s superhero throwback
    3.5 of 4 by Richard Roeper [Chicago Sun-Times ]
  • this is an engaging and sometimes engagingly odd superhero action movie; a weirdly nonlinear mashup of past and present, memories and present experience, Earth and non-Earth action; In any case, Captain Marvel is an entertaining new part of the saga
    3 of 5 by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian ]
  • there is precious little texture or detail, ups and downs, or emotions of any kind in her performance. The character, even when kicking ass, is a total bore. The film’s best moments are provided by Jackson and a hilarious cat
    1.5 of 4 by Johnny Oleksinski [New York Post ]
  • the picture is not dull, exactly, just mundane, marked by unimaginative plotting, cut-rate villains, a bland visual style and a lack of elan in every department
    by Todd McCarthy [The Hollywood Reporter ]
  • the MCU introduces a bright, brilliant light to their universe. Captain Marvel is a complete triumph, with wit, spectacle and a sense of wonder which gives the MCU's future a compelling trajectory
    4 of 5 by Scott Davis [HeyUGuys ]
  • set in the mid-1990's.. this superhero film proudly waves a retro flag. But everything in its DNA, from representation (in front of and behind the screen) to its notions of empowerment, radiates our moment right now
    4 of 5 by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone ]
  • Larson isn't given enough to do in a Marvel movie that marinates in '90s nostalgia but doesn't quite rise to the occasion of its own significance; the film's much-vaunted feminism promised in months of run-up advertising and interviews gets short-shrift
    3 of 5 by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York ]
  • Brie Larson is more than good enough for this job. It's not her loosest work, but few, if any, good actors deliver their loosest work in a superhero movie
    3 of 4 by Michael Phillips [Chicago Tribune ]
  • as shaky and unfocused as "Captain Marvel" often seems, it manages to reach its destination with confidence. In the end, Larson sticks the landing, albeit with something more muted than absolute triumph
    2 of 4 by Ann Hornaday [Washington Post ]
  • as a Nick Fury buddy comedy, it's fun. As a feminist fable it's essential. This takes a while to really get going, but when Carol Danvers takes off she is unstoppable
    4 of 5 by Helen O'Hara [Empire Magazine ]
  • Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck have brought off something exciting, embracing the Marvel house style and, within that, crafting a tale with enough tricks and moods and sleight-of-hand layers to keep us honestly absorbed
    by Owen Gleiberman [Variety ]
  • a massively disappointing introduction to Carol Danvers; Brie Larson has all the right stuff, but she can't save this generic Avengers prequel from being among the most disappointing Marvel movies
    Review rate : C- by David Ehrlich [Indiewire ]
  • a disappointingly un-Marvelous superhero; Brie Larson, despite her Oscar for "Room", simply doesn't convince as a superhero. She's too natural, too conversational; her one-liners never sting; her speeches fizzle
    2 of 4 by Rafer Guzman [Newsday ]
  • "Captain Marvel" is a messy origin story with some clever twists; The movie's treatment of its source material is clever
    Review rate : B by Darren Franich [Entertainment Weekly ]
