Now that you've seen it, what did you think? "You have operated with unlimited power and no supervision. That's something the world can no longer tolerate." Now in theaters is Marvel Studios' latest, Captain America: Civil War, directed by the Russo Brothers. This time they pit hero against hero, as the Avengers universe begins to go crazy as two sides are formed. On one side you have Captain America, Bucky, Falcon, Scarlet Witch and Hawkeye; on the other side there's Iron Man, Black Widow, War Machine, The Vision, Black Panther and yeah maybe Spidey. So how did this one turn out? Is it really one of their best yet? Once you've seen it, leave a comment with your own thoughts on Marvel's Captain America: Civil War.

To fuel the fire, I kind of loved Captain America: Civil War… way more than I was expecting to, even. It's so damn good. The action is some of the best action out of any Marvel movie, even better than the previous two Avengers movies - yeah I said it. It's easy to follow yet still hard-hitting, incredibly fun and creative, and showcases all of the heroes and their abilities at their best. The final fight at the airport is awesome - that's the kind of action set piece you'll watch over and over again and never get tired of it. Of course, inbetween all that action there is the story of the split up of the Avengers. There are some great scenes in the first half with impressive dialogue and discussions, and I was caught up in the convictions of the two different sides.
Just going to say it - Team Cap all the way! I'm a big supporter of Captain America and his views on this situation and the Sakovia Accord and all that. It was really really fun to see Spidey finally show up in this. Even though it was easy to tell his scenes were added once everything worked out, they fit in nicely and he already feels perfectly like Spider-Man. I was surprised to see how much he had to do in the final fight, same with Ant-Man, but that's the beauty of the Marvel Universe now - they have so many characters to play with and bring in whenever, and so many different choices to make. It's awesome to see everything work out so harmoniously in this movie. It is a bit too long, my biggest gripe, but overall this movie seriously kicks ass.
What did you think of Marvel's Captain America: Civil War? The best movie yet or the worst?
