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.

Trivia

In the post-credits scene, Peter's web shooter emits a light which strongly resembled the "Spidey Signal" seen in the comics. This is the debut of the Spidey Signal on-screen. See more »

Goofs

(at around 51 mins) Towards the end of the foot/car/motorcycle chase in the tunnel, the SUV that Captain America drives and leaps from as it crashes starts to roll. One of the front doors is open and is almost immediately torn free as the vehicle rolls; in the next shot, a longer shot from further back, the vehicle is intact with all doors closed. See more »

I love Captain
24 April 2020 | by q-02121-71714See all my reviews

There is no absolute right or wrong position on both sides of the civil war. The United States team is the embodiment of very justice , he believes in truth, goodness and beauty, he believes in the kindness of winter soldiers (in fact, winter soldiers are indeed manipulated by Hydra). Winter soldier is the only person in the world that the United States team has known since before he went to sleep, a spirit that no one can replace. A lot of people say the United States team is selfish, I don't think so. The Black Widow finally helped the United States team and the winter soldiers leave, so many people on the captain's side, not just a large number of people, but said that the captain's justice and salvation were accepted by more people. And Iron Man, uh, only wanted to catch the winter soldier, and his conceit in the positive film made him not see the truth of the facts. After reading the third book, it is heartache in two words. Why is the heartache? The fight between the American team, the winter soldier and the Iron Man, of course: the captain wanted to protect the winter soldier, Tony wanted revenge for killing his parents, and Tony was angry because the captain knew about it and didn't tell himself. It was a good show for a good brother to die.

At the end, when Tony was alone and lonely, he received a letter from the captain. The captain's magnetic voice softened my heart.Fight is hit, emotional injury broken, but as long as you need them to need me, we will be with you to fight with you.

That's how heartache it is. I like the United States team.
