    I enjoyed the movie. However, I didn’t think it was as good as Winter Soldier. It seem to emphasize action more than story.

      Hi David, I am still deciding how much I like it. I gave it a score of 8 for now. Right now I think I agree with you. So far it is below Winter Soldier and The Avengers for me. But I think I need to see it again, to get a really concrete opinion on the movie.

  2. Matthew D says:

    I agree a lot with the reviews…it was one of the better Marvel Cinematic Universe movies but not one of the best (Avengers 1, Guardians Of The Galaxy or Iron Man 1).

    1. Joshua Krueger says:

      Hi Matthew,

      I think I am in agreement. Those are all very good ones that you mention, and those along with Captain America: Winter Soldier all seem to be a little better in my opinion. Things might change after more viewings though,

  3. Levi Kangas says:

    It was a very good movie but I like The Avengers better. It’s such a great time for comic book movies.

  4. Leisa Winrich says:

    Saw the movie twice the first weekend and can’t wait to see it again.

  5. Serena Powell says:

    I enjoyed the movie, but agree that the plot was pretty week, and the way they resolved it was lackluster. I enjoyed seeing all the superheros come together in one movie, and the addition of Spider-man and Black Panther, both of who I thought were great.

    1. Joshua Krueger says:

      Hi Serena!

      I think there are two plots going on in the movie–the debate over the Sokovia Accords, which I thought was done really well, and the Zemo plot, which I think was not very good. Zemo’s plot was a lot of convenient timing, and really didn’t make a whole lot of sense. Is that about what you are thinking too?

  6. Yuta says:

    Your reviews are pretty spot on. I do find myself gushing over Civil War more than I did The Avengers or The Winter Soldier, mostly because it was such a joy seeing all of the heroes on-screen at the same time. I LOVED Spidey and Black Panther, and I daresay that airport battle scene is the best superhero fight put on film… ever. Civil War is definitely up there with The Avengers and The Winter Soldier as my best MCU movies.

    1. Joshua Krueger says:

      Hi Yuta!

      Thank you for the kind words. I am still hesitant to put Captain America: Civil War in my top 5, as there are so many good comic book movies out there. Currently I think I have The Dark Knight, The Avengers, Man of Steel (I always get flack for saying this one is in my top 3), Captain America: Winter Soldier, and a couple others all fighting for the top 5 spots. I will need to think about it a little more.

  7. D. Rivera says:

    Your review was on the money. I was team tony all the way and even beforehand, but there was still a lot of a gray area. I think the breakout stars were spiderman antman and and black panther. I place Civil war in my top 5 along with Guardians, Cap 2 Winter soldier, ant-man, and iron man 1.

    1. Joshua Krueger says:

      Hi D Rivera!

      I am right there with you. Civil War is a really good movie, especially the moral dilemma it asks throughout the movie. That aspect that David D (who wrote for us) and I have had fierce debates on which character they believe is right. But you are right, Ant Man, Black Panther and Spider-Man really stood out this movie. My only real problem with the movie was the villain, which seems to be a running theme with Marvel movies. I am glad to hear you liked it so much though!

  8. Tim says:

    I have yet to see Winter Soldier or Age of Ultron, so it’s difficult for me to compare. Having two kids under five will do that to you. Still, I appreciate the perspectives. Thanks!

  9. Emily says:

    Good reviews of a great movie!

  10. Christopher says:

    Truly the best Marvel movie thus far!

  11. Leisa Winrich says:

    Love this movie. Like how Agents of Shield followed up.
