Captain America: Civil War Reviews
Captain America: Civil War has some very serious and interesting themes. The Sokovia Accords are a great way to divide The Avengers and to cause a conflict. Zemo (Daniel Brühl) is a very interesting villain and delivers some great thoughts for The Avengers to deal with. SPOILERS AHEAD: The conflict Captain America (Chris Evans) and Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) have is very compelling, you want both sides to win but you know both sides can't win. When you think the conflict is over and everything is settled a major plot twist brings everything to its knees again. Causing Bucky (Sebastian Stan) to actually be a real enemy to Tony (Robert Downey Jr.). Sometimes the CGI was wobbly (especially on the airport) but it wasn't too obvious. All the actors delivered great performances and great chemistry, for a movie centered around Captain America (Steve Rogers) I didn't mind all the characters being on screen. Captain America: Civil War is, I think, better than Marvel's The Avengers (2012) and the second best in the MCU so far.
I think that it really wasn't necessarily to be 146 minutes, cause I was bored sometimes, and actually it's the same problem with most of the MCU movies.
The roles -as always- for me aren't good, the performance of most of the cast is very poor! Scarlett Johansson as Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow is bad as always, Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier is getting worse every movie, Chadwick Boseman as T'Challa/Black Panther WAS totally a fake-act and Chris Evans as Steve Rogers/Captain America is ridiculously serious as always.
But some roles I really adored, and comes in number one Paul Rudd as Scott Lang/Ant-Man as always, then Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark/Iron Man, Paul Bettany as Vision, Tom Holland as Peter Parker/Spider-Man, Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch and Anthony Mackie as Sam Wilson/Falcon.
The others were equal to me.
The action sequence was really epic, the CGI was stunning too, it had a slight sense of humor and the story was iconic!
Captain America: Civil War is definitely a great, stunning, epic and unwell-ed most of the performances movie!
Remember the Avengers fighting each other in the first Avengers movie? Hulk fought Thor. Black Widow fought Hawkeye. Thor and Iron Man fought until Captain America showed up and Thor brought the hammer down onto Cap's shield.
Remember Hulk vs Iron Man in the Hulkbuster armor in the second movie? Remember Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver fighting the Avengers before joining the Avengers themselves?
Star Lord, Gamora, Rocket, and Groot fight each other in Guardians of the Galaxy before they become friends.
Iron Man and War Machine fight in Iron Man 2.
Thor fights Hulk yet again in Thor: Ragnarok.
Daredevil fights Punisher in the Netflix Daredevil series. Jessica Jones fights Luke Cage in Jessica Jones. Iron Fist fights Luke Cage in the Defenders. And so on.
This movie continues Marvel's obsession with forcing the good guys fight each other. Captain America, Iron Man, Bucky, Falcon, War Machine, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Ant-Man, Spider-Man, Black Panther, Scarlet Witch -- they all fight each other.
There are some lame, cringeworthy attempts at humor while the good guys fight each other, undermining the seriousness of the whole thing. The only casualty due to all this fighting is one of the black guys, War Machine. No one cared about him anyway and he doesn't even die. Robert Downey Jr. just phones it in these days because he knows no one who watches these comic book movies has a brain.
