As Steve Rogers struggles to embrace his role in the modern world, he teams up with a fellow Avenger and S.H.I.E.L.D agent, Black Widow, to battle a new threat from history: an assassin known as the Winter Soldier.
Samuel L. Jackson,
Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May, under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark, Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine - distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man - but when the Vulture emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.Written by
In the beginning of the film, when Peter (Tom Holland) is with Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.) in the limo, Peter is wearing a shirt that reads "The physics is theoretical. The fun is real!" This is a quote from The Big Bang Theory (2007), a show about incredibly smart people with very poor social skills, much like Peter. See more »
The opening of the film states that the battle of New York is set 8 years prior. This is a mistake. Tony Stark states in Infinity War that the events of The Avengers happened 6 years prior. Also, Vision states that for 2 years he and Scarlet Witch have been trying to make a relationship work, putting Civil War (as well as Homecoming) 2 years prior to Infinity War, 4 years after The Avengers. SM Homecoming cannot take place 8 years after The Avengers if Infinity War takes place 6 years after. Even the directors of Infinity War have stated that the "8 years later" was a mistake. See more »
Things are never gonna be the same. I mean, look at this. You got aliens. You got big green guys tearing down buildings. When I was kid, I used to draw cowboys and Indians.
Actually, it's Native American, but whatever.

Please take my review with a grain of salt. I don't really write reviews, but I really felt compelled to say something about this movie and it's decaying genre.
I'm conflicted, because I know my opinion is getting more and more jaded with every new superhero flick- but I am quickly reaching the end of my rope here. All these movies feel so predictable and cliché anymore, and as much as I truly want to enjoy them it is becoming more and more difficult.
The main actors in this movie were pretty good, but what can you do with yet another weak story that has already been rehashed in other films. The writing felt subpar, and in the end it came off as being full of gimmicks and convenient sub plot.
It just doesn't feel real anymore, it doesn't feel believable. It feels like a fantasy world created for superfans who never take a step back and critique.
These superhero movies are becoming more and more uninspired, and while I try to give them all a chance I am just getting tired of it all. It feels like the quality is being diluted, all that matters anymore is the quantity. All that matters is the money.
I still hold out hope- just look at the 'zombie' genre. Just because there is dilution within the genre doesn't mean a sporadic gem can't be made. However, if you are of a similar mindset as me, you might want to keep looking elsewhere.
Thanks for reading!
