Directed by: Anthony Russo and Joe Russo
‘Captain America: Civil War’ is the third film in the Captain America trilogy, and like its earlier films its packed with excellent cinematography, intense action with some great fight scenes, car chases, though a few look a bit unreal. The superhero blockbuster from Marvel comics, shies away from its cartoonish plot, and brings about a well styled theme that is thoroughly enjoyable. The costumes and masks are brilliant. We’d say Marvelous entertainment.
After creating a bit of turmoil in a street battle that leaves many dead, the superheroes are given a sendoff note saying that they are now labeled vigilantes by the international governments and the Avengers will now be overseen by the UN. This fallout breaks the hero’s confidence and Iron Man / Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) is left with no option but to take orders from a U.N. panel, but Captain America / Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) refuses. This drives a terrible attack between both superheroes, turning the two friends into bitter enemies.
A physically brainwashed assassin Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stab), Rogers’s old friend gets blamed for the drift he has caused and the deaths that occurred, but Cap and his friends are convinced Bucky might be innocent. Who will win the fight is interesting to watch, as the climax shot at an aerodrome is action packed. We also get to see a bit of Spiderman coming in towards the end of the film fueling out the bad guys and ultimately bringing peace to humanity. Pick a team and see who wins in the battle.
The huge cast of characters played by top of the line actors and actresses make this flick a must watch, if you are an action freak. Don’t miss the flying characters who zip past on your screen like a flash of light. At the Teen Choice Awards, the film was nominated in ten categories and won in two. Bonus material includes a very shot Sneak Peak into the making of the film.
