“We try to save as many people as we can, sometimes that doesn’t mean everybody.”
What’s it about?
After trash talking in The Avengers and play-fighting in Age of Ultron, Captain America and Iron Man go to all out war with each other after a mission leaves damages and dead civilians, forcing the kids to decide which parent they want to side with.
Who’s in it?
Okay, there’s *inhales* Chris Evans, Robert Downy Jr., Sebastian Stan, Scarlett Johansson, Anthony Mackie, Don Cheadle, Paul Bettany, Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Rudd, Chadwick Bosman, and Tom Holland. *exhales*
Why should I watch it?
+ First of all, the movie isn’t a Civil Disagreement or Civil Debate, it really is a WAR
+ High stakes with very real consequences
+ Interesting evolution/continuation how Stark went from anti to pro government because of Ultron and how Cap went from pro to anti because Hydra seems to be behind everything
+ More serious tone, similar to CA: The Winter Soldier
+ Great ideological conflict, you can totally understand where both sides are coming from
+ Went in #TeamIronMan but eventually sided with Cap (it’s like his movie or something)
+ Chase scene with Bucky, Panther and Cap
+ Cap trying to contain Bucky reminded me of Hulk and Iron Man in Age of Ultron
+ THE AIRPORT BATTLE SCENE
+ Believe the hype guys, the best action sequences from the MCU
+ Funny banter between Bucky and Falcon
+ Sam Wilson has never looked more like Falcon in this movie
+ Most of the comedic elements come from Ant-Man and Spider-Man
+ Ant-Man will surprise a lot of people
+ Tom Holland is probably the best Spider-Man/Peter Parker combo
+ Tapped more into his scientific, geeky side and has a Deadpool kind of meta about him
+ Aunt May looks a lot younger and hotter, what cream has she been using?
+ Black Panther is badass, great introduction and fits well into the story
+ Good twist near the end
+ Incredibly emotional fight scene
+ I mean, wow, powerful stuff
+ Just makes you wanna shout “Martha” to stop them fighting
+ Addresses missing Avengers and how the world got more villains popping up after Iron Man
+ It might not be an Avengers movie but there’s plenty of literal avenging going on
+ Clocked a few comic book references
+ Dean Pelton from Community cameo
+ Subtle set up the Spider-Man and Black Panther solo movies
+ Funny Stan Lee Cameo
Why shouldn’t I watch it?
– A bit slow to start, lot of things to set up
– Another throwaway villain, Marvel’s best villains (except for Loki) can only found on Netflix
– But hey, at least they’re consistent? 🌚
– Also, hold up guys, can someone explain…
– Does Winter Soldier have super powers?
– Really thought it was just the metallic arm
Shout out to the Russo bros, looks like we are in safe hands for Avengers: Infinity War.
I’m not sure if it beat The Avengers for my number one Marvel movie trophy but I do know it’s a whole lot better than some other super hero movie, which had to juggle less characters and had tons of material to use but still managed to ruin the story, that I won’t mention 🌚 Do yourself a favour, drop whatever you’re doing and go watch this right now! And oh, don’t be discouraged by people leaving and hold out for 2 end-credit scenes.
