Captain America: Civil War is approaching us quickly- and a finished version was recently shown to a small group of lucky fans already! Due to how far ahead they got to see it, the reactions from these folks are not too in depth, but they give us just what we need to hear. The people at website Birth.Movies.Death got the opportunity to speak to some of those who got to see the film, and here is the information they gathered:
"This isn’t Avengers 2.5, but rather Captain America 3, and it truly focuses on Cap and Bucky. I have been told that Spider-Man is great, and that the film doesn’t waste time on retelling his origin. We all get it, and the movie just moves along. I’ve been told that Black Panther is phenomenal, and that Chadwick Boseman is a major addition to the MCU. This movie picks up the pieces of Avengers: Age of Ultron in surprising and human ways and makes us feel the true cost of Sokovia. And I’ve been told that the last half hour of the film is brutal, both physically and emotionally. One person told me that the last act plays out as an emotional horror movie because the film gives both Tony and Steve solid reasoning, and because it truly makes you feel the depths of this schism."
Some of this information is very interesting and surprising- hearing about how the story focuses on Cap but still features all our favorite heroes and some excellent new ones. The connection to Age of Ultron is quite intriguing, and it seems like that really dark and tense tone we have all been wanting from the film surprisingly is there, and overall, this really increases my excitement after the mediocre trailers.
