Captain Marvel Rated 12A

Captain Marvel

Dir. Anna Boden, Ryan Fleck. USA, 2019. 2h 4m. Starring Brie Larson, Ben Mendelsohn, Gemma Chan, Jude Law, Mckenna Grace, Samuel L. Jackson, Anette Bening, Lee Pace.

Marvel’s first solo female-fronted blockbuster takes us back to the 1990s. The story follows Carol Danvers as she becomes one of the universe’s most powerful heroes when Earth is caught in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races. A radiantly fun and genuinely feminist origin story for the MCU’s mightiest Avenger.

‘This is not another cheap girl-power cliché; it's an explicitly feminist apotheosis.’ ★★★★ Helen O’Hara, Empire Magazine

'In the age of the dour superhero flick, Captain Marvel strikes a pleasing chord, at once delivering levity, gravity and spectacle.’ Hannah Woodhead, Little White Lies
