Captain America: Civil War is the best Marvel movie yet.
It may be a bold statement, but it’s true. On all levels, this film beats the rest. It has the best action, the best story and it is the best team up film (yes, even better than The Avengers.)
Now if you haven’t seen the movie yet, you should. But, I will be talking about some things that may be spoilers. I will avoid talking about the plot in too much detail.
This movie is about a civil war within the Avengers, brought on by a catastrophe at the beginning of the film. It leads to the team splitting into two factions, one led by Captain America and one led by Iron Man.
Like I said before, but I want to stress again, the action is amazing. There were so many scenes that left my jaw hanging. It is incredible. I think this film is perfect visually and pretty perfect plot-wise.
The thing that Marvel does best in their films is their characters. The returning characters were all fleshed-out so well that I felt closer to them, and understood them better than I did in any other MCU film.
And then there were the new guys.
Here’s where there may be some spoilers so read on with caution.
There are three significant, new characters: Black Panther, Baron Zemo and Spiderman.
Black Panther’s motivations were clear and relatable making him a strong character from the start. His action scenes are some of the best in the movie. And, bluntly, his suit looks cool. He’s one of the more exciting characters in the movie and I can’t wait for his solo movie.
Baron Zemo was introduced well and had a good enough foundation to leave me wanting more. He was a good villain but I have one problem with him. My only problem with this movie is that Zemo Never got his mask. Come on, Marvel! What are you doing?
Finally there was Spiderman.
All I have to say is Tom Holland’s incarnation of Spiderman is the most perfect Spiderman/Peter Parker on screen yet. I cannot wait to see more. I am just so happy to see one of my favorite superheroes done so correctly.
Anyway, any spoilers are done.
See this movie. It’s a must.
