Captain Marvel ★★★½

Visually impressive, entertaining, and as the first female-led Captain Marvel is a formidable addition to the MCU. Rising to the occasion, Larson is sublime with her wise-cracking performance, but while it doesn’t shy away from the responsibility it carries, it doesn’t quite thrill as an origin story.

One of the film’s main trope is about Carol being held back from reaching her full potential, it’s empowering not only to women but to everyone, as this film highlights we aren’t limited by our label.
