The movie may also be referred to as Iron-Man versus Captain America.
The movie is action packed, funny and has a lot of entertaining content. For those, like me, who have not watched ant-man and winter soldiers, you may get a tad bit lost, but the movie is still fun. As expected there was plenty of boom-boom, pow-pow. It was certainly refreshing to watch a movie where the sole responsibilities of the heroes were not just to defeat the villains and save the day.
As far as the storyline goes, there were some really amazing scenes and a plot twist that could have been written better, however, the direction, cinematography and the acting skills of our beloved superheroes, saved the movie. The Villain, Baron Zemo, could have had a stronger background story and character, or at least his story could have been narrated in a manner to have more impact on the audience to have considered it worthy of a ‘Civil War’.
It was nice to see a more serious and responsible side of Tony Stark, for a change.
Also, why? WHY! Couldn’t Tobey or Andrew have played the role of Spider Man? I feel like, whatever little part the kid had in the movie would have been a tad bit better if Spidey wasn’t, for once, a high school kid. Although, Spider Man would have been a pleasant surprise had they not revealed him in the trailer, that was the same mistake they made with Batman Vs Superman, they should have kept Wonder Woman a surprise factor.
Scarlet was as gorgeous as ever. I think I have a little crush on Vision. Missed Hulk. Surely am going to watch Ant Man and Winter Soldiers, now.
(Tip: If you are planning on going for it, SIT FOR THE CREDITS THAT FOLLOW)
How many shields would I give this almost epic movie? I’d say, 4 Captain America Shields.
