Captain America: Civil War

#THE GIST

Marvel's "Captain America: Civil War" finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps-one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark's surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability.

It has been a while since I was extremely excited about a movie and going into “Civil War” that excitement has finally returned to me. Obviously when going into a film this excited you can easily be let down, but lucky for me Marvel didn’t let me down even one bit with it’s “Captain America: Civil War”. I really believe this is Marvel’s best one yet. It was great to see a different kind of villain this time around as this one mostly tapped into psychology than actually focusing on hand-to-hand combat. Apart from the villain I also thought the acting was great and Joe and Anthony Russo did an amazing job at combining most of the characters in the current cinematic universe. All-in-all I don’t really have anything bad to say about “Civil War” and I would truly recommend this one to all the Marvel followers out there.

The Captain America franchise continues to be the best franchise of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the superhero genre in general. This status is confirmed by “Captain America: Civil War” by being even better than the last “Captain America” movie, which is a rare thing in Hollywood these days. I am going to kick off by talking about all the well-known characters as almost all your favorite heroes, except for Thor and the Hulk, return to face off against each other. As expected, every single one of them did a marvelous job. On the new heroes side, Spider-Man and Black Panther are both great new additions to the roster, with this Spider-Man being the best on screen adaptation we've seen to date. In “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” we saw the Russo Brothers could direct great action scenes and this time they kicked it up a notch with the airport fight being one of the best fight scenes I've ever seen. Talking about villains, everybody probably knows Marvel’s track record with mostly bland villains. Gladly, I was pleasantly surprised with Baron Zemo as he had a clear motivation and a set goal. I even found him to be sympathetic at one point. Zemo is definitely their best villain since Loki was introduced. To conclude my review, I strongly recommend “Captain America: Civil War” to everyone who is remotely interested in the genre.

“Captain America: Civil War” kicks off the highly anticipated Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and it does so with a bang. Yes, this film was hyped and it doesn’t let down as it justifies all the hype by probably being the best Marvel movie to date. The Russo brothers strengthen their already solid reputation of being good directors and they even give us their best action scene yet. Further, the villain, Baron Zemo, was a breath of fresh air. He was menacing, definitely not bland, well worked-out and nothing like the comic book villains we have seen so far. He prefers to let our beloved heroes fight each other instead of going straight in himself, which ultimately leaves us with a villain who actually has character and isn’t just a punching back. Speaking of heroes, Spider-Man and Black Panther finally make their entrance and both characters are great. This gives us a lot of hope for their future solo movies and we are excited to see them. Besides the newly introduced characters it is also fair to note that the “old” team did an amazing job as well. Overall, we don’t really have anything negative to say about “Captain America: Civil War” and suggest you see it as soon as possible if you are interested in the subject.
