One of my “birthday presents” over the weekend was to see Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War“.
Now I am going to start this off with saying that this will not have any spoilers in it. Even though there was a character in it that I thought hadn’t been mentioned in any of the other trailers, apparently they were. I had to rewatch the trailers and, yes, they were there but extremely briefly. I must have been literally blinking at the times this character was shown. Because of this though I am not going to talk about this character, just in case you missed the character as well.
I am going to start off with saying that I have actually never watched any of the other Captain America movies…Yes, I know it’s shocking and I was worried that I would have no idea what was going on. It wasn’t too bad though and I think this was something to do with it was a Avenger movie really, with just a really strong story focus on Captain America and more of his past. I honestly also believe that they kept Thor and the Hulk out of this one because it would then make it an Avengers movies. If they keep at least a couple of them out, then it’s not officially an Avengers movie?
It is a great movie, I don’t think we would have expected anything less. Captain America vs Iron Man…It’ll be interesting to see whose side viewers will take. I know I came out liking a totally different character to the one I liked before. Do be prepared for a lot of country and place switching though…One moment they’re in London, the next they’re in Switzerland or something.
Apart from that it was a really good movie, good explanation of how the Captain and Iron Man come to really hash it out. Some good motivation of future possible characters demise? There is also a lot more one-on-one fighting between the heroes rather than involving and destroying a whole city. Which is also a theme throughout the movie, the catalyst if you will for the whole set-up.
Spider”man”…Oh my goodness! He was fantastic! Much MUCH more likeable and much more realistic to believe that he’s a teenager rather than some moody 30 year old playing him. Much more innocence. I might actually go see his Spiderman movies.
4 out of 5 books…The constant switching of places around the world made me not able to settle in and get involve.
