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.

Mar 8, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

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.

Mar 8, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

In the grand scheme of the Marvel Universe, however, "Captain Marvel" feels like a supporting player, not a featured attraction.

Mar 7, 2019 | Rating: C | Full Review…

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.

Mar 7, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

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.
