Captain America: Civil War: The Review

Hey, this movie was pretty good! See you tomorrow...

I guess I'll elaborate in a spoiler free sort of way. A lot of net nerds are calling Captain America: Civil War, Avengers 2.5. With the size of the cast and the Iron Man v Captain America story line it definitely felt less like a Captain America movie and more like an Avengers film. I thought the filmmakers did a good job balancing all the characters, It never felt too overcrowded and every character got one or two small moments to shine. However, my main gripe with the movie is that they tried to tell two different stories. The Civil War story line where all the Avengers fight over a piece of legislation passed by the UN and a second WAY more interesting story revolving the Winter Soldier and the past crimes he has committed.

Maybe I'm crazy, I know as a big comic book fan I'm supposed to be obsessed over "who would win in a fight?", but I'm not. You know who wins in a fight between the Hulk and Thor? Whoever the writer wants to win.

I still enjoyed the movie plenty. The sheer spectacle of the thing was worth the price of admission. It's just at the end I felt like we were left with yet another Marvel movie with an underwhelming villain, which is INSANE to think about. Marvel has sooo many great villains yet out of 13 "main Marvel movies" the only two villains that really stick out in my mind are Loki and Ultron. A lot of net nerds have already declared Civil War the best Marvel movie to date, and while I think it's definitely one of the better ones, I'm not sure it cracks my top 5. I give it like a B+. It's the same feeling I had after watching Age of Ultron. I liked it a bunch but I felt like there were still some flaws.
