Captain America: Civil War is the thirteenth film of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). The film was directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, screenplay by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, and produced by Kevin Feige.
The film begins with a flashback in 1991 of Bucky Barnes being dispatched from a Hydra base in Siberia. The film then cuts to modern day where The Avengers are traveling to Sokovia, trying to help the chaos there. Wanda, accidently blows a nearby building, killing humanitarian numbers. Throughout the movie, the location changes with each mission.
The Avengers then travel back to their headquarters, realizing that they have to be careful with their powers. The Avengers divides, which leads to many fight scenes and clashes between different members. Throughout the movie, new characters are introduced which gains members from each team. Towards the end of the film, The Avengers a full on battle starts between the two teams.
The positive aspects of the movie were the character development, fight scenes, and acting. Throughout the movie, many of the character’s personalities and mindsets changed. The fight scenes were action-packed and kept me on the edge of my seat. Overall, the actors/actresses did an amazing job at portraying the characters.
One of the main negative aspects of the movie was the fact that there were a lot of pointless scenes. The movie’s length is around two hours and half hours, and it could’ve been cut to two hours. Some of the scenes were dragging out the plot and most of them were humorous scenes–that personally, I didn’t find funny.
Overall, Captain America: Civil War is a great and entertaining movie despite the few negatives.
