Warning: the following contains spoilers for Captain America: Civil War.

Captain America: Civil War is one of the greatest superhero films yet. Filled with action, drama and fun, there was never a dull moment in this incredible movie. The plot never died down, and there always seemed to be something awesome going on.

With everything that happened, it's rather easy to forget some of the biggest moments of the fantastic movie. While some moments are easy to remember, like the airport scene, there are some that are less memorable, yet equally awesome.

Here are the top 5 most awesome moments from Captain America: Civil War:

5. Cap stopping Bucky's helicopter

Now we knew Captain America was already incredibly strong, but seeing this scene was phenomenal. Never before had we seen Cap holding down a helicopter at full power to keep it grounded. This was an impressive feat and really showed off how fantastic Steve Rogers really is.

Even after he was done holding onto the chopper, Cap still showed off how brilliant he was as his reflexes dodged the propellers of the helicopter. I cringed while watching it because I was genuinely worried for Captain America, but as soon as Cap narrowly dodged both propellers, I realized how foolish I was for doubting the great Steve Rogers.

4. Seeing the New Avengers in action

The movie really opened up with a bang as we witnessed a few of the New Avengers kicking ass to stop Crossbones and his evil plans. Not only was it awesome to see Captain America and Black Widow back in action, but it was also great to see Falcon and Scarlet Witch, both of whom have evolved since their last appearances.

Falcon's new suit was not only crazy upgraded, but his newest piece of equipment, Redwing, was a wonderful addition to the Avengers tech. Seeing Scarlet Witch was also a sight to behold as she finally managed to get a grip on her powers, proving herself to possibly be the strongest Avenger on the team. The entire fight scene was widely entertaining and a great way to start up the movie.

3. Captain America and Bucky vs. Iron Man

Though it may not be at the top of this list, that final fight was the perfect way to end the film. Instead of ending with the Avengers completely uniting, the movie went out on the note of Captain America and Iron Man finally facing off in one epic duel.

Throwing Bucky into the mix really added emotion to the fight, as Iron Man hated Bucky while Cap would do anything to protect him. The entire fight was breathtaking because we had no clue what would happen. With rumors of Captain America's death swirling around, we were all genuinely worried that he may not make it out alive. This was a very intense scene that ruptured the relationship between our two favorite heroes forever.

2. Black Panther chasing Bucky

Who doesn't love a good chase scene? Now throw a man with a metal arm, a man dressed as a cat, and a man with mechanized wings and you've got yourself one hell of a chase. Like many of the other moments in Civil War, this chase kept me at the edge of my seat throughout.

There was so much going on, but it all fit together perfectly. When it came down to it, we had no clue what would happen. Black Panther had randomly showed up and was a total wild card, making the entire scene unpredictable, yet fun at the same time. It is without a doubt the perfect example of a chase scene.

1. The airport fight!

And here we go - the big one. There really is no question as to why the big airport fight is number one on this list. It was truly epic. Sure, the earlier moments on this list included a lot of characters, but this was the only one to really include everyone. It was fast, it was action packed, it was fun, and it was shot remarkably well.

Whether it was Hawkeye bantering with Black Panther, Vision shooting lasers, Spider-Man turning giant Ant-Man into an AT-AT from The Empire Strikes Back, or War Machine using his war hammer against Captain America, every single shot of this scene was astounding. It was such a fun fight scene and I'd watch it over and over again if I could.

Captain America: Civil War is full of so much action and fun - this list didn't even skim the surface. It had some of the greatest moments in the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, and the airport fight is arguably the greatest fight scene in any superhero movie. It simply blew me away, and I cannot wait to see it again and again and again.
