Movie Review ~ Marvel's Captain Amercia: Civil War

Marvel's Captain America: Civil War 12A (2D)


Directors: Anthony Russo, Joe Russo
Writers: Christopher Markus, Stephen McFeely


After several international incidents involving the Avengers cause too much collateral damage, a set of governmental checks and controls are to be placed on all enhanced humans. The proposed agreement splits the group with Tony Stark (Iron Man) heading up those Avengers who acquiesce and Steve Rogers (Captain America) leading those who won't.
It starts a civil war between the two teams meanwhile allowing a new enemy to emerge; one who has the Hydra secret to unlocking the Winter Soldier in Captain America's oldest friend, Bucky Barnes and the means to unleash a new terror on the world. New and old Marvel characters clash head on in this 146 minute action fight-fest as Captain America struggles with his moral compass in an increasingly hostile world, leaving him no option but to choose between friendship or duty.

Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Emily VanCamp, Don Cheadle, Jeremy Renner, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Rudd, Frank Grillo, William Hurt and Daniel Brühl are a stellar cast in this super-sized installment of the Marvel Avengers.


Five out five for some fearsome fun.
