Movie Info

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.

Critic Reviews for Captain America: Civil War

All Critics (397) | Top Critics (60) | Fresh (361) | Rotten (36)

  • It is one of the best movies to ever come out of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, balancing engaging action set pieces and witty dialogue with intelligent character studies and ethical debates.

    Aug 3, 2017 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • It's this levity that makes the much-touted battle royale between Team Cap and Team Iron Man so much fun.

    May 12, 2016 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • The fact that a Marvel movie dares to question the big, shiny spectacle that is its bread and butter - and acknowledge that untold thousands die in the name of entertainment - seems rather novel.

    May 11, 2016 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • The motto of the directors, Anthony and Joe Russo, appears to be: If you can make it happen, do it. Don't hold back.

    May 9, 2016 | Full Review…
  • As they did in Winter Soldier, the Russos have achieved an uncommon balance of plot and action, humor and drama, all of it once again deeply grounded in character.

    May 7, 2016 | Full Review…
  • It's the Vibranium standard for super-team flicks.

Audience Reviews for Captain America: Civil War

  • Jun 04, 2019
    ******** SPOILERS AHEAD ************* The dialogue is outstanding, even fuller of subtext than usual, and stunning action sequences like the airport fight carried by the charm of the newly introduced Peter Parker and Ant Man, but the plot is still a little thin. The framing of Bucky and Stark's parents' death seems so temporary. The true argument between Captain America and Iron Man, about supervision, seems mature for the Marvel movies, but still doesn't reach the depth of the fundamental moral divide between Professor X and Magneto.

    While not being the"Dark Knight"of Marvel,Captain America Civil War has an emotional story and brings new Marvel charachters to the stadium in a great way.

    Little dissapointong from my viewpoint but it really is great blockbuster. It has some unexpected moments and mostly the end of the movie which was really worthy for a praise. That thing really won me when i was thinking about the movie after seeing it. One of the few that surprised me. And the one from much time with that way of unexpecting. So.... Good movie.
