All one can think about is the terrible waste of resources, technology and human skill represented by a film like Captain America: Civil War.

Never mind narrative economy - where's the story at all?
December 4, 2020
Sets about establishing an exhaustingly circuitous plot of betrayal, infighting, espionage, terrorism, and covert operations.

It's a regular movie that looks like a trailer of The Avengers. [Full review in Spanish]

I don't have time for this plotline anymore.

It's fatiguing.

Marvel is playing it safe and its themes of vengeance never see a real consequence. [Full Review in Spanish]
August 22, 2018
Overall, the lack of ingenuity makes for a lackluster story in need of major content editing.

Captain America: Civil War is very much a sequel to Winter Soldier but, regrettably, too long, tryingly complicated and it takes the best part of 75 minutes before it breaks into anything resembling comic exuberance.
August 25, 2017
Actually, instead of Captain America: Civil War, a more appropriate title might be Captain America: Cap and Iron Man Get Their Iddy-Biddy Feewings Hurt.

Never mind if his stuff is cut with unbelievable dross, if the acting is terrible, the costumes are hideous, if the wigs are preposterous and the codpieces are disappointingly flat, loyal fans will still come back to be expertly fleeced.

It's more of the same, of course it has a little more entertainment, but it's the same tendency to repeat what has worked in the past, nothing new. [Full review in Spanish]

Anthony and Joe Russo make a cheerful show of it, giving their gee-whiz comic book audience all they could wish for -- and more. But that's the problem -- it's still just 90 minutes worth of story stretched out to two-and-a-half hours.

The fact that Civil War ponders the importance of those who've died in conflicts doesn't add complexity to the film, it just fills it with hipocrisy. [Full review in Spanish]
May 12, 2016
Captain America and Iron Man almost represent the schism that now divides American voters, politicians, and pundits. I say "almost," because the film...doesn't inspire reflection upon the dire seriousness of our current ideological civil war.
May 9, 2016
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 8, 2016
An underwhelming exercise in sound and fury striclty for brains on pause. .
May 7, 2016
Dull, overlong, exhausting and mildly entertaining without rising to the heights of the first Captain America's palpable thrills, suspense and intrigue
May 7, 2016
Captain America: Civil War is the movie equivalent of the all-dressed potato chip: A junk food classic that can't be denied, but can never truly satisfy our desire for something original.
May 6, 2016
Slid off my senses like Thor's hammer across Cap's vibranium shield -- the powerhouse hits land without so much as a scratch.
