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 Spider-Man) and Team Captain America (Captain America, Bucky Barnes, Falcon, Scarlet Witch, Hawkeye, and Ant Man) while a new villain emerges.

The Big epic battle of two superhero teams - Captain America is the king my number 1 personal MCU superhero movie of all time
29 September 2018 | by rambofan4lifeSee all my reviews

Yes Captain America: Civil War is my number 1 favorite superhero MCU movie of all time I love, love this film to death. I love it so much It is a bad-ass action film I love everything from this film. I really enjoyed this film. This is Phase Three of MCU films and how many MARVEL films come out in Phase Three? I liked only two movies that come out Captain America: Civil War and Spider-Man: Homecoming the rest movies in "Phase Three" that come out sucked. "Captain America: Civil War" is a descent awesome MCU super action the third film of the Captain America trilogy MILES ways better than "The Dark Knight Rises". Chris Evens as Steve Rogers / Captain America is a bad-ass superhero my favorite MCU superhero off all time. I understand the character and what Steve had to do to defend an innocent person his best friend Bucky Barnes. I love Chris Evens performance I see a lot of his character been in a movie.

The big epic battle begins and pits Two teams of MCU's Biggest superheroes in One Epic Confrontation. One lead by Captain America and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference. The other team following Iron Man's surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability. The same year that this movie come out the same year DC was filming Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice the same story two superhero's fighting each other and that movie was disgusting hell of a mess. This movie approved to be a good decent action sci-fi fantasy MCU movie my personal favorite.

The basic plot of the story pulled from the comics pits Iron Man against Captain America, with the rest of the heroes in the Marvel universe forced to pick sides in an epic battle. That being so, the MCU hasn't always walked in lock-step with the comics, leading us to wonder what exactly the teams will be.

Team Captain America: Hawkeye, Sharon Carter, Falcon, Bucky Barnes, Ant-Man, Scarlet Witch

Team Iron Man: War Machine, Black Widow, Black Panther, The Vision, Spider-Man.

Chris Evens is still a bad-ass as the lead Steve Rogers/ Captain America in the film I love his performance. Robert Downey Jr. I love the men so much he is so charismatic so good playing his role as Tony Stark/ Iron Man. Scarlett Johansson as Natasha Romanoff / Black Widow kicked ass in the beginning of the film and I love her so much in here she is great. Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes / Winter Soldier is excellent he is a good/ bad guy and we see what he went trough after Zola found him. Tom Holland as Peter Parker / Spider-Man is funny I absolutely love him, the best Spider-Man I ever saw. Andrew Garfield should have learn acting courses from Tom Holland. Paul Rudd as Scott Lang / Ant-Man love the guy he is so funny I love him in this movie. I love when he become bigger in the movie. Chadwick Boseman as T'Challa / Black Panther I enjoy his performance he stopped Zemo he surrender him to CIA and he hide "The Winter Soldier" in his homeland. Anthony Mackie as Sam Wilson / Falcon is fantastic he is great and supports Cap all the way he is his best buddy since (Captain America: The Winter Soldier). Don Cheadle is great as War Machine he supports Tony all they way and he leads Tony's team against Cap. I love Daniel Brühl as Helmut Zemo great villain bad guy I love his last name Zemo love it. Frank Grillo Rumlow / Crossbones I seriously love the guy so much the fight between him and Cap was excellent.

Not only that I love these two teams fighting each other you have other villains in the movie: Helmut Zemo (Daniel Bruhl), Brock Rumlow / Crossbones (Frank Grillo from (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) and of course Bucky Barnes / Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) yes because he killed Tony Stark's Parents. The action scenes are fantastic, the fight scenes on the airport are incredible heart pulse breath taking awesome. The fight scenes were very well done and well choreographed. I love the 1991 opening December 16th The Winter Soldier with guns killing Starks Parents I love 1991 report and that we find out there are still 5 super soldiers like Bucky Barnes.

The cast Chris Evens includes Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Don Cheadle, Jeremy Renner, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Rudd, Emily VanCamp, Tom Holland, Frank Grillo, William Hurt, and Daniel Brühl.

Yes I would put this movie over "The Dark Night Trilogy". The Dark Knight is not the best superhero movie and gets so much praise. Captain America: Civil War is my number 1 favorite superhero MCU film it is based on a comic book the characters are based on a comic book. The fight scenes, the effect, CGI acting performance from everyone is solid. Great direction from the Russo brothers they know how the direct a perfect film off all time. I love the song on the end of credits Left Hand Free by Alt-J. I watch this movie three times in the row now the last time I watch it was in December 2017 I still remember because of the name Zemo. This movie is a solid perfect 10 because it takes the most vision of one of the most imaginative directors ever.
