“Larson has to play a character who is both reclaiming her past and discovering her future. It’s a surprisingly complex role which may be why some of the fan base has been put off by it.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“CAPTAIN MARVEL is one of the blandest superhero movies ever released to the masses.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

“…a drab-looking chase picture awash in tedious exposition and overbearing period pop culture references.” – Sean Burns, The ARTery

“CAPTAIN MARVEL is by no means the next best superhero movie. But it is a lot of fun, and a solid foundation for a character with plenty of potential in the MCU.” – Deirdre Crimmins, High-Def Digest

“It’s schlocky, campy, and panders to its fanbase, but if you aren’t burnt out on these movies you’ll be in for a fun ride.” – Byron McNeal, Nerd Caliber
