So the other day I was asked by a friend, Who's your favourite superhero,
now to tell you the truth I do have a few such has
and a few relatives such as my dad and my aunt Julie.
Marvel's "Captain America: Civil War" finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team.
Playing the noblest American of them all, Chris Evans is easy to underrate. As in previous installments, Capitan American: Civil War shows the world war II hero was frozen and revived for our complex times, as a touching and skeptical immortal. Civil war and I agree it's fun, smart and most importantly it allows the viewers hearts to beat strongly amid the chaos, with characters moments and set pieces working in tandem to create perhaps Marvel's best film so far.
Our favourite Capitan could also be seen as a symbol of the U.S. government's unilateral actions in foreign affairs. But the Russo Brother's terrific actions opus addresses directly what Batman Vs Superman hinted at. It's the most expensive, entertaining movie anyone's made about blowback.
It's a long, rich movie, neither too jokey nor too ponderous. Stark's own self-satisfied bluster doesn't hide his sorrows. His right-hand woman Pepper has left him. He has troubles that he's willing to spill in public. At MIT he demonstrates his newest invention. It's a holodeck-like therapy machine, in which a simulacrum of the young Stark copes with his WASP-y parents (John Slattery and Hope Davis).
This satisfying adventure is rich with the things Marvel comics always did best: critiquing the consequences of power in explosive, four-color form. Even this moralizing can be parodied, though. When Iron Man's armor is infiltrated by Ant-Man (Paul Rudd), and Stark demands to know who goes there, the tiny intruder quips: 'This is your conscience speaking...'
I would second Civil War to family and friends because it's a great film and it's had everything from drama to action which means it tends to fit everyone's genres. Plus I find Civil war one of the greatest films Marvel has made and I can't wait to see if they make a fourth.
One thing I did forget to mention was that I did enjoy the way Marvel brought Spiderman into the film, Like Thomas Stanley Holland was a good choice to be the new spidy because I believe Thomas is just great at cracking jokes and all just like in the comics and to be truly I can't wait to see Thomas in the new Spiderman films.
But do let me know in the comments, who's side you're on Team Cap or Team Iron Man, I'm definitely on Team Cap.
