Marvel’s summer blockbuster has finally hit theaters this week with Captain America: Civil War. Directed by the Russo brothers, the same directors who gave us Captain America: The Winter Soldier, they had a lot of expectations to fulfill due to the fact that this is one of the most famous comic book stories in all of the Marvel universe. With all that in mind, the two still didn’t disappoint with one of the best superhero movies ever made with great acting, action, plot and some great twist and turns along the way. Captain America: Civil War is more than worthy of getting a 5 out of 5 stars.

The movie stars Steve Rogers, AKA Captain America as the government is fed up and tired of all the deaths and casualties that happened in the previous Marvel films. To make matters worse, Bucky Barnes, Rogers old friend from World War II comes back and is order to be taken down by the Avengers. While Cap thinks that the government is wrong, Tony Stark, AKA Iron Man thinks that this is a good plan and all the Avengers should sign the accords and take out the Winter Soldier. Many other heroes show up with their own ideas and motives. With new and old faces joining the fight, the time where the do fight in the movie, it’s the coolest thing I have seen in any Marvel movie ever.

All the actors played their parts great with newcomers doing a great job as well. Black Panther and Spider-Man are the newest stars in the movie and they are both memorable and are great carnations of their comic book characters. The villain is ok but I feel like there was really no real reason why he should be here. I always thought that the antagonist were the heroes. It was a matter of perspective on who is right and wrong, but that’s just me. This is still a great movie with awesome action, characters, and the coolest fight scene in any Marvel movie period. The movie is being played all over the country in 3D and 2D as well.
