Epic. Outstanding. Earth shattering. There is no shortage of positive adjectives to describe installments of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, specifically its latest addition, “Captain America: Civil War.”
Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) and Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) have had their disagreements in the past, but their strained relationship has finally reached a tipping point.
In this film, the Avengers face the possibility of being placed under control of the United Nations by order of the Sokovia Accords, an international directive named after a location in “Avengers: Age of Ultron”.
Rogers believes the Avengers must maintain their sovereignty and refuses to sign the document.
But Stark argues for them to be reigned in to prevent another tragedy.
Both Iron Man and Captain America form teams while the Avengers split down the middle about the prospect of governmental collaring.
After every measure to preserve the peace fails, the conflict eventually erupts into chaos.
The film is packed with heart-pounding action, and provides an extremely dynamic plot that introduces several new characters, and a bombshell plot twist involving The Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan).
Yes, Spiderman (Tom Holland) is in the film, and has a hilarious entrance.
“Civil War” skyrocketed to number one in the box office, claiming the fifth highest opening weekend ever with nearly $180,000,000, and currently is the 19th highest grossing film of all time.
I recommend the movie to anyone, of any age, who is familiar with the Marvel Universe.
Also keep in mind, there are two post credit scenes, so stick around to the end.
