Captain America: Civil War

This past weekend Marvel Studios has released its latest movie and the beginning of Phase three Captain America: Civil War. This film is both a sequel to the Russo Brothers previous film “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” and Joss Whedon’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron”, as the film discusses the casualties that had to happen in the previous Marvel films and The U.N. has issued a registration act or as in the film the Sokovia Accords of which forces our heroes to work for the U.N. instead of as an independent force. Our heroes take the opposite side in this debate with Tony Stark (played by Robert Downey Jr.) on the side for the accords and Steve Rogers (played by Chris Evans) opposing it. It’s not just that, we also have to deal with Bucky Barns (Played by Sebastian Stan) who is being held responsible for an attack on the U.N. of which complicates the situation.  So now Captain America has to prove his friend’s innocence while Iron Man and his team out to catch Bucky Barnes.

 We also being introduced to 2 New Heroes in the MCU; Black Panther (played by Chadwick Boseman) who plays not a large role, but enough to define who he is and how he works, and next Spider-Man (Played by Tom Holland) who just makes a small appearance in the movie, but managed to fully capsulate the Marvel character better than the Two previous portrayals of Spider-Man. Both these new additions give you hope for their upcoming movies, “Black Panther” and “Spider-Man: Homecoming”.
You can’t forget about the action and once again Marvel delivers with arguably two best sequences, the Airport battle between all our heroes which bring so many surprises and references/Easter eggs to this scene that even with multiple watches you’ll still find something more to love. There is also the final fight scene between Iron Man, Captain America & Bucky Barnes which may not be as big as the airport one, but packs in so much emotion with it. Even though is called “Civil War” we do have the main villain by the name of Baron Zemo (Played by Daniel Brühl) who stays in the background most of the movie but does have a clever plan of which I will not spoil. But since this movie capsulate our heroes fighting each other taking to focus, we don’t fully dwell into Zemo enough to fully consider him a major villain, but he and his goal is not the entire focus.
Captain America Civil War still delivers great action, a compelling narrative, stellar portrayals from our actors, it worth seeing in theaters and staying for the 2 end credit scenes.
