Captain America : Civil War – **

Posted: May 31, 2018 in 2016, Action, Fantasy, USA, XX

This is one confusing action hero movie.

Especially if you haven’t seen all the other movies leading up to it or have forgotten about them.

But, it works.

The United Nations want to control the Avengers a bit more because in their attempt to save the world, they do damage a lot of buildings and kill innocent victims. The Avengers are a bunch of superheroes acting like a vigilante team. (In case you’ve never heard about them before) There’s an attack on a UN council killing several people and the planned terrorist is a superhero: The Winter Soldier. Or so it seems. At the attack the king of Wakanda dies and his son, Black Panther !, wants revenge! The Avengers themselves are split between a group of heroes loyal to Iron Man (who is in support of being under UN watch) and Captain America (who trusts his best friend – the winter soldier- to be innocent.

What happens next is just non stop action. There’s a common villain (a role by Hollywood’s favorite German villain: Daniel Bruhl), but in the mean time, the Avengers fight amongst themselves. At an abandoned airport. It’s crazy. There’s all these characters that fans probably are delighted to see. But if you’re not used to the Marvel Comics Universe, it’s pretty confusing. There’s a lot of action though. So it doesn’t bore, even though the movie is long. And Black Panther isn’t really shining. As to introducing characters, the presence of silly, talkative, young Spider-Man makes you want to watch that spin-off movie with Tom Holland.

However, there is no time to watch all the other MCU movies… but maybe The Avengers: Infinite War will make more sense now.
