The Marvel Cinematic Universe is now in its third phase. It has come a long way after the release of Iron Man. While Captain America: The First Avenger is nothing but a good old-fashioned WWII extravaganza, The Winter Soldier allowed directors Anthony and Joe Russo to bring politics into the picture while still providing the fun that audiences go see these movies for. Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, and Captain America having their standalone feats, they saved the world twice in The Avengers and last year’s sequel Age of Ultron.
Now with Civil War, ranking with Guardians of the Galaxy and The Winter Soldier as the best MCU film, the Avengers face two new enemies: one of them being the government, who accuses the initiative of collateral damage. They come up with a law to control their actions causing Captain America (Chris Evans) and Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) to disagree with one another. Let the battle commence!
I’m not going to spoil too much of the movie. I can tell you that this is a movie that should not be missed! It’s funny. It’s exciting. It’s devastating as hell. Nothing but pure light-hearted fun.
