Even though I had the opportunity to see this movie in IMAX (which was amazing, by the way) I still entered the theater with trepidation. Which side will the Avengers pick, will someone get hurt, will someone die? So many questions....
Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two
camps—one led by Steve Rogers
and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without
government interference, and the other following Tony Stark’s surprising
decision to support government oversight and accountability.
What I loved about this movie was that while it had lots of amazing action-packed sequences, you also get to know the characters even better. Then add in the humor and some new heroes and it is a winning combination! The battle between the two hero teams was epic! The action was intense, but also very clever! Antman, by the way, is my favorite and he did not disappoint in this movie! I actually applauded at one point!
Instead of feeling like another sequel, this movie can stand on it's own. It was very well done! I definitely recommend it, and go see it soon so no one spoils it for you! It opens nationwide today, May 6th.
And for what it's worth... I'm totally Team Captain America!
