Don’t worry reader; this is a spoiler-free article.
Hi everyone! Captain America: Civil War may only be opening today in the United States, but for some of us lucky ones living outside the U.S, we’ve already been given the chance to watch it since a week ago. And personally for myself, I’ve already seen it and am so satisfied by the outcome of the hard work of everyone that was involved in the making of this film. In fact, as of now, Civil War is my favorite movie of 2016! Here’s why.
Right when the first sequence begins, you would know immediately that the “action” factor in this movie is covered. And you will not be wrong, because Captain America: Civil War is packed with some of the most epic and coolest action scenes you will see in the superhero genre for years to come. But of course, action isn’t enough to make a movie great. Let’s see what else makes this film such a memorable experience.
Even though Captain America: Civil War has a more serious tone and deals with more mature themes, you would be pleasantly surprised by the amount of hilarious moments present in this film. But actually, if you’ve been following the Marvel Cinematic Universe for awhile now, it wouldn’t come as a surprise to you. It’s just that the jokes here are really, REALLY good.
3. Character Interactions
This movie is full of what I call “geek fantasy” moments – interactions between characters that we’ve been hoping to see on the big screen since the beginning of time. And if you are one of those people who are going to see this film because of “that one character”, no matter who it is, you will not be disappointed. Because literally every character was portrayed and used in the story so, so well. ESPECIALLY, but not limited to Spider-Man!
Okay, some people might look at the trailer of Captain America: Civil War and be afraid that it would turn out to be just some senseless superhero beat-down with no emotional depth. If that is what you’re concerned with, don’t worry. I can confidently say that this is one of the most emotional films in the MCU, and you will feel it too when you watch how our favorite team gets torn apart.
Last but not least, an emotional film full of action, comedy and fun would still be mediocre unless it has a great plot that carries those elements well. I don’t want to say much about the plot of Civil War because I don’t want to spoil it to you; but you got to see it for yourself. All I can say is that from start to finish, you will be fully engaged and kept in suspense; and at the end, you will get a satisfying conclusion to the Captain America trilogy and a strong start to Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
And that’s about all I have to say about this film. It is a must-watch! If you haven’t seen it, what are you waiting for?
