Captain America: Civil War

The entire Avengers initiative is torn into two opposing sides in this closing chapter to Disney Marvel's Captain America series. The directors of The Winter Soldier return, as does Chris Evans as Steve Rogers. The cast of Marvel characters joining them include Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Don Cheadle as War Machine, Paul Rudd as Ant-Man and introducing Tom Holland as Spider-Man (marking the webbed one's first appearance in this Marvel universe).

After a major incident involving the Rogers-led Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability. This new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps - one led by 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.

I would need 13 TED speakers and several flowcharts to detail every single thing going on in Captain America: Civil War. With a rising hero count close to bursting point, you’d be forgiven for thinking you were watching the third Avengers film. But as overwhelming as all this seems, the story stays incredibly focused on what defines Steve Rogers: never ignoring a civilian’s life, remaining true to a global view of freedom, and acknowledging the consequences of doing what you believe is right.

Epic.

Entertaining & spectacular with heartfelt themes and a twisting plot, while developing characters' persona.

Amazing film that just keeps you on the edge of your seat the whole journey. The much talked about division between the Avengers that basically had to happen, of course everyone knows in film law you have to divide only to come back stronger. Full of those super heroes you love and fighting each other not some 'big bad', what more could you ask.

This felt very much like an in between, fill in, set up for the next Marvel movie kinda film. Some great development of Cap and Bucky, the growing showdown between Stark and Cap, and the introduction of some neat, new characters but otherwise not a lot happening. Still pretty good though!

I think this movie is fantastic, but lacks in the chef department. Movies like Jon Favreau's Chef hits that perfectly and I think Civil war could learn something from it.

This is Marvel at their best: a pacey, intelligent super-sized blockbuster and a roaringly fun night out.

It’s a huge aspartame rush of a film: a giant irresistible snack, not nutritious, but very tasty.

No doubt this is the kind of high note Marvel would like to continue indefinitely across the franchise.

Builds upon the plotlines of previous Avengers outings, bringing together known marquee quantities and introducing the Black Panther and a new Spidey in winning fashion.

Matching its blockbuster scale and spectacle with the smarts of a great, grown-up thriller, Captain America: Civil War is Marvel Studios’ finest film yet.
