A spoiler free selection can be read below, but the majority of USA critics praise Larson's performance, as well as that of Ben Mendelsohn, Samuel L. Jackson, and more importantly, Goose the cat.
"Captain Marvel is an effective Avengers prequel in some ways akin to the 1st Captain America movie", Kelley wrote. Marvel fans would be happy to learn that most reviews are positive.
Slashfilm's Peter Sciretta said Captain Marvel's origin story is great, but the '90s music choices are too obvious at times.
The film won't hit theatres until March 8 in the U.S. and United Kingdom and March 7 in Australia.
Set in the 1990s, Marvel Studios' Captain Marvel is an all-new adventure from a previously unseen period in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe that follows the journey of Carol Danvers as she becomes one of the universe's most powerful heroes. But, as the Hollywood Reporter says, it hasn't stopped a wave of bad reviews from hitting Captain Marvel's Rotten Tomatoes page. On top of that, the film will be preceded by a tribute to the late Stan Lee, who passed away past year.
In any case, despite the early backlash, the real test for Captain Marvel comes when the film hits theaters on March 8th, 2019.
Entertainment Tonight's Ash Crossan said Captain Marvel was extremely relatable as a character and that she loved the film. We obviously already expected Captain Marvel to feature credits scenes.
