As a future artist in the film industry, I will be reviewing and critiquing films that appeal to younger people like you and I. This is my first post and it will contain spoilers.
In the first installment of Phase Three in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Captain America and Iron Man assemble their own team of Avengers as collateral damage threatens to tear the Avengers apart. Who will win???
What I Liked
What I liked about Civil War was the introduction of some of Marvel's famous characters. The film featured the live-action debut of Black Panther: A Wakandan king who upholds the Panther persona as a warrior. He was featured in various cartoons with the Avengers, but this was first time appearing on the big screen. Black Panther will have his own movie in 2018.
In Civil War, we got to catch up with some characters we've seen in past films. Scarlet Witch seems to be doing better after losing her brother in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Ant-Man received a new suit after his feature debut, Ant-Man in 2015. His new suit can shrink, but also grow with the press of a button. Ant-Man will appear with the Wasp in Ant-Man and the Wasp in 2016.
Spider-Man also made his first appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He obviously appeared in various movies (some re-telling his story), but this is his first time in the Cinematic Universe.
What I Didn't Like
The whole sub-plot with Bucky and the Winter Soldiers' sound pretty interesting, but the way it was executed was kind of boring, and added to the overall plot. They could've kept Bucky as the only Winter Soldier and only him being experimented on by Hydra. By the way, Bucky Barnes was Captain America (Steve Rogers)'s best friend, and war buddy. He supposedly died in Captain America: The First Avenger, but was resurrected in Captain America: The Winter Soldier as a trained assassin carrying out killings for Hydra.
The other thing I didn't like was the inclusion of so many characters. The characters were pretty cool and it would be a dream to have a movie with Black Panther, Ant-Man, and Spider-Man, but what is the point of calling it a Captain America movie? Might as well call it: Avengers 2.5. With the addition of the many characters, It didn't feel like Cap's movie. It's too bad we won't be getting a Captain America 4.
Overall, It was a pretty great movie. It had an interesting mixture of dialogue and action. With the fight scene at the airport, to the final battle between Cap and Iron Man, Many people call Civil War the best Marvel movie yet! It's a great movie nonetheless, but we'll have to wait for the Infinity Wars in 2018 and 2019.
