It may be weak in terms of historical accuracy, but terrific performances, insanely good music and a solid story make this movie all the more amazing!!
Still waiting for Spaceballs 2: The Search for More Money ;)
This movie was way, WAAAY better than I was expecting it to be. After the ideas of The Last Jedi being rumored to be retconned, and seeing numerous negative reviews of this movie, I was very worried about how I was going to feel about this movie. And yes, there are some pretty Mary Sue-ish moments and I think it could have been done better, but for what it was, I really enjoyed it. There was exciting and kick-ass moments sprinkled throughout, I thought (not going into spoilers) what they did with Leia was really effective, and I thought the end throwdown was fairly satisfying. Everyone in the cast was great. Overall, not the best Star Wars movie, but far better than I was expecting. I would definitely watch it again.
Don't get me wrong, it's beautifully animated and has great voice acting (especially from Benedict Cumberbatch). But, this movie doesn't do anything new with the source material, and what is considered "new" is really bland. Basically, it's just another Illumination movie with no interest in characters and unfunny humor.
Top 5 MCU for sure. This movie perfectly illustrates how when two friends have different viewpoints, it can drive a wedge into their friendship and cause, in the words of Vision, catastrophe. Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr., as usual, are phenomenal in this movie; their performances are charismatic, but at the same time, you are convinced that there is conflict between these two friends. This movie also gave a great introduction to MCU newcomers (at the time), Black Panther and, of course, SPIDER-MAN!! The last throwdown at the airport was awesome (though since then, that throwdown has gone down in the rankings). Zemo was a great villain, mostly because you could understand where the guy was coming from after the events of Age of Ultron. Overall, this is a amazing MCU movie.
