Steve Robinson’s review published on Letterboxd:
I didn't want to give this 4 stars and in my heart I kept thinking that this shouldn't be a 4 star movie. But it is. As a comic book superhero movie it hits all the right marks. Correct visual tone, enough of a link back to the comics whilst at the same time keeping it fresh. It has few links to other mcu films but enough to keep us hooked. There is excellent use of art direction with costume design and colour pallets of every scene.
JJ behind the camera shows a good understanding of all the material and uses his experiences on the Rocketeer to good use and shows that potential is fulfilled in this film.
Then we have an excellent script, a great cast and solid acting from all. Other than some dodgy CGI here and there I can see very little wrong with this. At this stage in phase 1, one of the best.
