I luckily got to see this movie last night. Yes, go see it! It’s a great movie and shouldn’t be missed. The action starts right at the get-go and continues throughout the whole show.
Don’t be fooled by the title and the team picking (#teamCap or #teamIronMan) this movie is not simply a Captain America / IronMan movie. It’s a whole Avengers packed film picking up where “Avengers: Age of Ultron” left off (with, I feel, a lean towards IronMan more than the other heroes).
Let me be clear, I went in #teamCap all the way (I mean, look at him!!)– even tweeting my choice – to which I received a video back from Captain America thanking me – pretty cool, I must say!! I think everyone should pick their team before going in to see it to simply add to the fun of it all.
Bonus movie character visits included Black Panther, Ant-Man and a fabulous new Spiderman (Tom Holland) making his Marvel debut. I must say, I’m really looking forward to seeing more of him!
Without giving too much away, the movie is about the superhero team/family splitting up and members taking sides. The issue is their “accountability” for past actions where innocents have been hurt. Superheroes are asked to sign an agreement where a governing body (the United Nations) would be over them holding them accountable for their actions. Some decide to sign while the others believe, even though they won’t be sanctioned by not signing, it will limit them too much in situations where quick action is necessary to defend humanity.
The film runs about 2 ½ hours so everyone will get their fill of incredibly technical fighting scenes and humorous lines of comic relief.
Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” stars Chris Evans as the iconic Super Hero character Steve Rogers/Captain America; Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark/Iron Man; Scarlett Johansson as Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow; Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier; Anthony Mackie as Sam Wilson/Falcon; Don Cheadle as Colonel James Rhodes/War Machine; Jeremy Renner as Clint Barton/Hawkeye; Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa/Black Panther; Paul Bettany as Vision; and Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff/ Scarlet Witch.
The film also stars Paul Rudd as Scott Lang/Ant-Man; Emily VanCamp as Sharon Carter; Marisa Tomei as May Parker; Tom Holland as Spider-Man; Frank Grillo as Brock Rumlow/Crossbones; and Martin Freeman as Everett Ross; with William Hurt as Secretary of State Thaddeus Ross and Daniel Brühl as Zemo.
I’m not sure how Hunter (11) and Westly (7) will be able to sit through this movie on Saturday without getting overly excited and wanting to get their “wrestling” on. I hope the non-stop action will keep their eyes glued to the screen!

HI Jen! Going to see it after work tomorrow. One of our vendor’s treat. Glad to read it is action packed, so I don’t fall asleep after a long day at work.I also heard Howard Stern interviewing Robert Downey Jr. plugging the movie. Didn’t realize it was involving the whole gang ofcharacters. Love your reviews, btw?
Don’t know where that question mark came from. ..haha, should have been a smiley.
