Storyline

With many people fearing the actions of super heroes, the government decides to push for the Hero Registration Act, a law that limits a hero's actions. This results in a division in The Avengers. Iron Man stands with this Act, claiming that their actions must be kept in check otherwise cities will continue to be destroyed, but Captain America feels that saving the world is daring enough and that they cannot rely on the government to protect the world. This escalates into an all-out war between Team Iron Man (Iron Man, Black Panther, Vision, Black Widow, War Machine, and Spiderman) and Team Captain America (Captain America, Bucky Barnes, Falcon, Sharon Carter, Scarlett Witch, Hawkeye, and Ant Man) while a new villain emerges.

Trivia

When the film introduces Peter Parker in Queens, the introduction shot is behind him showing the character casually holding a DVD player against the side of his body. In The Amazing Spider-man, one of first few introductory shots of Peter Parker (played by Andrew Garfield) has the character holding a skateboard in a similar manner with an almost identical frame composition.

Goofs

The pieces on the chess board in the Avengers' compound are positioned on the wrong sides of the board. The left corner field (A1, H8) of the chess board has to be black (not white), therefore the board has to be turned 90 degrees to be correct. See more »

Fulfills Promise of Being a 'Civil War'
13 April 2016 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

My greatest concern entering this movie was that it would play out as more of a Civil Dispute rather than a civil War, but thankfully is is absolutely the latter, and people get hurt. Really hurt.

But what a film! What a lovely, lovely film! Every minute, every second was nothing but pure entertainment and cinematic glory. Civil War doesn't quite recapture the wonderment and sheer awesomeness of the Avengers, but it comes very close - however, it is ultimately the superior film.

Sporting what is arguably the best action in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Captain America is a non-stop thrill ride. The airport scene (as corny as it may appear in teasers) is one of the best action scenes to grace the marvel Cinematic Universe, and the way it is choreographed and filmed is beyond spectacular. The sense of childish bewilderment and the rush of adrenaline that occurred during this scene was overpowering and i sat in awe for quite some time afterward.

The tone from Winter Soldier has been carried over into the heavily anticipated sequel and furthers the storyline in spectacular fashion. yes, as seen in the trailers, there are a lot of characters involved in this film. In past, this has meant bad news (Amazing Spider Man 2, Spider Man 3, Age of Ultron) but not in this instant. However, each character is given their due; seamlessly tied into the story and each receiving adequate screen time and narrative.

However, as in tradition with most Marvel films - the villains are extremely poor. Marvel seem to have consistent issues in producing decent villains, and this is by no means an exception. However, it is a rather minor component of the film and is wholly forgivable.

It's is exciting, tense, and an absolute blast of a time. For not one single minute was I bored or disinterested. As it stands, Captain America: Civl War may just be one of the greatest comic book movies of all time.
