This movie is unquestionably serious about it's explored topics. Definitely doesn't play nice in my book. The Russo brothers have succeeded yet again in the direction they took this and the action and fight scenes are all really intense and well done. The last 20 or so minutes of this film really blew me away to be honest! Good performances and it develops some of the characters even further. New characters will be fun to watch in the future. I even ended up loving Bruhl. Definitely worth it!

Undoubtedly a technical accomplishment. I disliked the weak plot that had them drawing sides & pitting Avenger versus Avenger. It all started to feel like pro wrestling, which I have no tolerance for. Still there is a lot of action, & several satisfying fight moments, so it's easy to find stuff to like. I just wish the writing was not so contrived & everything was not built upon the flimsy premise of revenge over collateral damage. It probably sounded better on paper.

Delivers what we've come to expect from Marvel - slick, fun, quip-filled, fast-paced, action-packed entertainment, with a nod or two towards deeper themes (that are never fully explored or allowed to truly shake up the status quo). It's a popcorn movie, to be sure, but still professional, high-quality popcorn.

The (new) super hero formula now has more than 15 years on it's back and has turned into an annoying teenager that just says "talk to the hand" every time you try to criticise it for being the same shit in different leather/iron/lycra outfit. Civil War is just that, and once again the MCU managed to fuck up the original and engaging story that is the amazing comic books in order to please the masses that just want another 150 min. of action shabangs while they eat popcorn like zombies eat flesh.

Easily the most enjoyable Marvel film since the first Avengers, and in many ways it plays more like just that, an Avengers film, but without the restricting "what major city are we trashing this month?" formula. Like Winter Soldier before it, Civil War manages to combine engaging action and superhero hi jinx with a dash of more mature subtext, and once again the Russos are able to steer and pace the whole insane circus quite masterfully.

I enjoyed how a lot of elements from previous MCU outings come together here. I got legit giddy (legiddy) when characters and agendas started intermingling, maybe helped by having avoided most of the promo-and-spoiler-onslaught. Doesn't reach the heights of Winter Soldier action- or plotwise, but this felt comicbooky in all the right ways. Oh, and that shot of Vision floating by himself in a barely lit room at night? Goosebumps. ...I'm going to die alone in a pile of comics, aren't I?

Can't believe this was made by the same creative team behind The Winter Soldier. Reaffirms once and for all that no amount of mindless action or over-choreographed fight scenes will ever compensate for the lack of an engaging narrative or genuine dramatic momentum, especially when that said spectacle is the equivalent of a bunch of nerdy teenagers taking part in a huge game of live action role-playing. Stark's initial meeting with Spidey stands as the highlight of this wholly redundant sequel.

I was lamenting the lack of importance to any of the plot points when I mentioned that the whole fear of government control never even came into play. At this point I was reminded that half the team was jailed! Maybe it's the over abundance of superhero movies, maybe it's the fuddy duddy monocle wearing art house snob inside me, but there is no weight to imprisoning an Avenger. If they don't break themselves out, the bad guys will. These movies are 70% treading water.

Civil War is one of the most enjoyable & fan pleasing additions in the MCU yet. The Russo Brothers have shaken up the MCU and they don't tip-toe around the premise of Civil War. There's so much more at stake and the action and set pieces are wonderful. Chris Evans & Robert Downey Jr. are the heartbeat of this showdown and new additions Black Panther and at long last Spider-Man are absolutely perfect. This seamlessly serves as both Cap 3 and Avengers 2.5 and Phase 3 is off to an incredible start.

I usually really enjoy superhero movies these days, and I'm not ashamed. This is another Marvel movie, but the formula continues to work. There is some heart, and some great action, and the plot moves along at a brisk pace, but people who haven't seen other movies won't know what's going on. Superhero overload hasn't set in for me yet, so I appreciate what they've done here. Still engaging and exciting, even while lacking a sense of gravitas. Separate oneself from Civil War comics, however.

This is when Marvel finally finds a way to depict their beloved, talky and unbeatable heroes -- or should I say assets? -- as a group of morally flawed, far-from-innocent vigilantes. Of course, the studio has to introduce a new batch of action figures, but Civil War also manages to tone down the irony in order to make it not about villains and evil dudes trying to destroy humanity, but people that dies everytime the Avengers show up and how it affects us and them. Also: Ant-Man and Spidey shine.

Marvel movie that, for the first time, fully captures the Big Top thrills and good-heartedness of Rami's Spiderman that kicked all this off in the first place. The Russo brothers give us the same Greengrass-esque thriller we saw in Winter Soldier - smart, fast, brutal, competent - but shift gears half way through to give us some true family entertainment that had every child in the theatre cackling with glee. When it goes all dark for the last act they've earned every over-wrought moment of it.

That's more like it, compared both to Avengers 2 and Psycho Bat vs Boyscout. A conflict that couldn't have been solved by 10 seconds of dialogue, some actual character development, a good amount of humour that doesn't take over too much... That it comes with a side of "Suggesting that Supermen should answer to things like democracy and the rule of law is like FASCISM" is part of the package, I guess. And thanks for not making us sit through Spiderman's backstory again.

Easily a better Avengers 2 than the actual Avengers 2, with strong conflicts between the characters a lot of exciting action with a good bit of OOMPH to it. A very solid intro to Black Panther. Spidey's intro was kind of awkward and forced, but he worked well once he got into the action. The big airport superhero brawl satisfies, although I will say that I started to feel the film's length a little after that point.

Very satisfied. Works better as a follow-up than Age of Ultron. Despite everything, it never feels bloated or overstuffed. Every character gets great moments. It was surprisingly emotionally-affecting, especially between Steve & Tony. I loved the new characters. The action scenes were awesome - the big set piece was thrilling and I could've watched another 30 minutes of it. The plot isn't amazing, but I don't care. I loved that it took its time. Fun, smart, well-made, spectacular. I loved it.

The way they seamlessly introduced new characters into the fold and not disrupt the flow was quite impressive. It is a little bloated and does take its time to build the story but some of the battles and set pieces are worth it. Whilst I still don't buy the motivation of the villain, they still have constructed a solid story (with a twist) to fit the Marvel universe that they have created.

The real Avengers sequel. As is the case with most fanboy cinema nowadays, it is full of post-9/11 parables. In particular we see how the threat of an invisible enemy forces heroes to trade in security for freedom. The Se7en like genius of the bad guy creates an ending (appropriately) worthy of The Empire Strikes Back's emotional impact. The action sequences (especially the airport scene), humor (Spidey), and fights (the final one) are great & worth seeing on the big screen. Highly recommended.

Our superheroes are done punching other people. Now it's time for them to punch each other over an escalating series of misunderstandings. Concerns over superhero fatigue have been aired for years, but while well-made and frequently very fun, Civil War still sinks into genre issues - overlong, overstuffed, sequel hooks and spinoff chances galore. It has two climaxes and a cipher of a villain; it refuses to make hard choices. Bring on the MCU's first endgame - the breaking point is close by.

This Marvelverse is getting more mature -- you can tell by the salty language! And also the themes of consequences and responsibility. It's amazing watching this after Bats vs Supes, which was so heavyhanded it became nonsensical and obnoxious. Civil War has the same gimmick, but both sides are sympathetic and realistic, and real stakes are involved. And it's fun! It's still fun to watch these movies. Spider-Man (a personal fave) is nailed perfectly and is a real delight.

One issue w/ CA:CW is how contrived the sorting of heroes into two camps feels. Why Rogers et al. choose their sides is not organic but a matter of narrative necessity, a means to an end (superheroes clobbering each other). Its ostensibly serious themes -- within an international democratic context, on whose authority should militaristic forces act? -- are thus trivialized. CA:CW ultimately upholds their privilege to act as they see fit because they are unimpeachably the good guys. How quaint.

Oh Captain, my Captain...is this the best Marvel movie? Just might be! Easily has the best Spider-man ever to be captured on screen (and it did it in just under 20 minutes) The airport battle will be talked about for ages as the pinnacle of superhero fights. Black Panther also shines, as Chadwick Boseman impresses with a stoic performance (not to mention a kickass African accent!) The thief of the show though has to go to Ant-Man (Paul Rudd, you beautiful bastard...ya did it again)

The hype for this one is deserved. The characterizations in the M movies have always been well defined, and they rely on those effectively here to set up the conflicts. It all feels justified, which is a feat. Consider how hammy this concept could have felt. They balance a number of characters, action, and humor which is why so many call it Avengers 3. Make no mistake though, this is a story about relationships (Cap/Bucky, Cap/Stark, Cap/WIlson, even Stark/Rhodey.) Very strong entry.

For comic book fans who grew up with these characters or fans of superhero films, it's difficult to overstate what an accomplishment this is. Sure, the twist at the end that detours from exactly what's expected means part of the villain's plot makes little sense, but that's a small quibble in a project of such size. It's taken 8 years of careful character-based building to reach this point & so this tapestry feels far more like watching friends fight, rather than a standard hero slug-fest .

Finally: an action film, a superhero film no less, that doesn't use internal conflict as just a passing notion or a theme. The movie is very serious about it's political and ethical conflicts, and unlike DC's take on heroes fighting each other, not only do you understand and sympathize with both sides of the argument, but you empathize with these characters and feel the tension. Not to mention creative and satisfying action, and possibly the best Spider-Man put to film!

In Marvel's attempt to reinforce their shared universe, "Civil War" loses it's identity as a Captain America movie at all and simply becomes an Avenger's housekeeping installment. It might end up paying off in a longer story arc, but taken alone, this movie is a let down.

It takes a while to get the pieces in place, and sometimes struggles to cover to all the characters, but this is superior comic book fare. The set-up is more involving than the usual suspects hammering waves of faceless enemies; death and destruction is given gravity here. Some of the conflicts feel a bit forced or rushed, but play out well, and the film concludes on a satisfying note. The battle scenes are impressive. We might be reaching saturation point with these films, but they still work.

When you watch this it's the same feeling you get picking a random superhero team crossover title off the rack in the 90's. If you didn't follow the other stories in other books you would be lost. It's come full circle where the movies feel like their comic book arcing plotline roots. The Russos take this further with more spy thriller moments. Overall this is a great entry but the endless title cards, disconnected plot elements, and iffy character motivations weakens what could have been great.

It's pretty fun but do these movies really need to be 2 hours and 30 minutes. There are some repetitive fights and the villain is pretty damn lame.

Sadly it can't live up to the majesty that was The Winter Soldier. With an awesome mid-film fight and a great cast of characters this should have been a home-run, yet it felt over-crowded and unfocused much of the time. But despite its shortcomings, Civil War continues the legacy of charm and wit in superhero blockbusters, and while not as objectively a good film as Winter Soldier, its still entertaining.

Way better than Age of Ulton, but not quite as good as Winter Soldier. I've always held the opinion that the casting of the entire cast is perfect, and no one really misses a beat here. I hear criticism that the stakes don't feel very high (which is fair), but even with that I still didn't feel like the movie was a trudge with the long runtime. The cameos are pheomenal (Tom Holland was, with no hyperbole, born to play Spider-Man), and the choreography is amazing. The machine keeps on rolling

Smart of the MCU to take this turn here. Civil War goes for a little more depth than its predecessors, trying to reckon with the huge collateral damage from these massive super hero battles. Also fun how the two sides develop in some unexpected ways. Finally, the actual action sequences were done quite well. I was a little surprised by the introduction of some characters that haven't had their own origin stories yet.

Rather than a 2&1/2 hour Cap movie, this should have been two 1 hour 50 minute movies to bookend the summer. Captain America: Civil War 1 intros the new characters and sets up the split to the airport scene. Iron Man: Civil War 2 extrapolates on the higher minded ideas that this movie picked around the edges of and gives a space for the flashbacks they used so it didn't feel rushed. Despite the lenghty run time (which I felt) two shorter films would have just been more enjoyable. Marvel, pay me.

Marvel have nurtured these characters just enough over the course of the MCU to ensure that the slightly clunky elements of Civil War's story, particularity surrounding the splitting of the factions, don't creak too much. The Russo's know what they're doing when it comes to action and know how to manage the characters abilities on screen without resorting to frantically insane destruction.

Captain America: Civil War is one of the better Marvel superhero movies thus far. It has great thematic depth - thoroughly exploring a topic that Batman v Superman took 2.5 hours to barely pierce - a lot of fun characters, a couple of spectacular action scenes, and enough humor to break up the monotony of darker, more mature subject matter. The Captain America trilogy has come to its conclusion, and it's a strong one.

The "Marvel Cinematic Universe" continues with the third "Captain America" movie a.k.a "The Avengers 2.5". This superhero film about political philosophy and red tape disguised as yet another villain out for revenge plot. Fortunately all of the pieces were in place from the previous 12 films to smoothly go into this contrived and convoluted "Accords" plot. Ultimately the story served in setting up future "Marvel" films(of course) and all the action figure smash-em-up a kid could dream of.

This is very comparable to "Winter Soldier" for me; I'll give it the same grade, though I think I enjoyed WS a bit more. Criticism, I guess, is that I feel it doesn't really set us up much at all for Infinity War. Now granted, they have two years to do that with Thor & Doctor Strange & Black Panther, but, I guess I was hoping more for that. At least some seedlings. Speaking of Black Panther, he's awesome! Showed me a side of Cap that I've desperately waited for, too: imperfection. I needed it.

The mid-movie fight scene is pretty fantastic, and Spiderman's inclusion is justified by the jokes made at his expense. But this never raises above good in my book.

Have to admit, it must be quite the juggling act keeping this many narrative threads taught and intertwined for this long. But somewhere into the "climactic" battle sequence, the thread was slowly pulled, and the whole experience unraveled. I ended up checking my watch for the time out of boredom, and realized that this is the Title Match people paid to see. The conflict that drives this War is so tenuous, it loses its meaning as soon as the fighting starts. A critical flaw.

Doesn't seem to add much to the Marvel universe besides a bunch of fun brawl sequences and another Spidey recast. I personally could have stood more mangling and maiming between the heroes instead of just tuckering one another out - Stark always seems too cozy in that damn suit and the guy with claws doesn't land a single claw the whole movie.

Civil War isn't perfect, but it's the closest the MCU has gotten. Rising to the challenge, the vast number of characters are each given enough screen time to both entertaining and developed. Brühl is the MCU's most complelling villain yet (and also the least powerful). The plot is engrossing with three expertly handled acts, that ensures the heart of the film remains a Captain America feature. a twilight for old characters, and a dawn for the new. Also Rudd's Ant-Man was awesome.

Definitely handles/balances the moral ambiguities better than its source material did, though I think that Cap acted like a complete idiot way too often. Chadwick Boseman's Black Panther is a major highlight, and I can't wait until his solo movie comes out. The new Spider-Man was fun and it was good to see him finally interact with other Marvel heroes, but I can't get that excited about him since the character's been done to death at this point.

Marvel really just needs to cut the shit and let the hot-yet-imminent three-way between Iron Man, Bucky, and Cap happen. I mean come on, they were like 5 seconds from making out the entire time, and it would be 100% in character. I swear I'm not projecting!

there goes another 250 million(!!!) dollars for a technically perfect zero stakes royal rumble of superheroes. who's gonna sign a completely inconsequential UN treaty? who's gonna get punched in the face? who will get mildly injured for about ten seconds? who is out for revenge for whom? and who cares? the tension is unbearable. fuck this. and now get on the hype train for spin-off nr. 37b "spider-man: puns and punches with peter parker feat. raunchy milf aunt may".

Daniel Bruhl da fuckin' boiiii! (Also almost no emotional resolution happens over the course of its runtime so it's kinda like a really long middle episode of Game of Thrones, but that setpiece is dope tho huh?!?)

Civil War is another very enjoyable film from the Marvel Cinematic Universe

The narrative is pretty shitty, though humorously less retarded than the story it was based on. It takes the overdone storyline of "people complaining about the destruction of superhero fights despite their presence literally preventing the world from being destroyed" and makes it Hollywood. The attempts at sentimentality were weak, the villain was shit and some parts of the plot were outright illogical. The airport fight was really cool, otherwise the whole movie was meh.

A good effort for a dumbed down subject considering the scope of the Civil War conflict in the story. The fight scene at the airport is probably a highlight for all super hero movies and I personally liked the tonal switch from the formulaic destruction of X city by world threatening forces. It did feel a little rushed in the final scenes and maybe this would have served better as a two part arc.

The film is loaded with superheroes, and although there are moments where their number is overwhelming, it's mostly handled well, especially in the big fight scene. There are a few surprise appearances; there's a lot of quick humor, too, and I appreciated that even when the Avengers are in the middle of combat against each other, there is mutual respect and affection. There's a lot of good relationship stuff, too, the stuff that adds nice layers between all the action sequence stuff.

Between the 46 action sequences there are some mutterings of dialogue or story but I can't be too sure. This doesn't fly (unlike in a Fury Road) when it's not all that good or fun to look at. Spiderman and giant Ant-Man the only musings of positivity.

Gotta say I'm really starting to like Marvel universe of films. Sure, the depth of movies isn't what Stan Lee envisioned, not that Lee's vision barely scratches surface of ideas he's exploring but you gotta appreciate CGI, choreography, story (which is likable), comedy and all the technical aspects of the movie. Very fun.

With a better premise than most recent Marvel efforts and some great thought-provoking drama, Civil War capitalizes on its political and moral dilemma to deliver a solid film that may be the best Marvel film so far. It adds humor with its abundance of characters, and though it does get a little distracted by its massive superhero battle, but still maintains its focus on its main characters and conflict.

The fact I haven't seen the previous two entries no doubt doesn't help, but really, there are only a few mildly amusing moments to relieve the general tedium of too many characters engaged in a meaningless but overly-complicated narrative, whose uninteresting themes are never pursued beyond the most superficial level. There is something unpleasant about how the action sequences are filmed, too, so overall there is little aesthetic pleasure to be had. Essentially just a big-screen-TV-show.

the amazing thing about civil war is the fact that we know all these heroes by now. we know their schticks, their origins and their banters, but still the movie manages to keep the whole avengers deal fresh. The inflated superhero roster count is a definite recipe for a clusterfuck, but russo bros seem to have defeated the "too many dicks on the dance floor" curse. kudos, indeed.

Too much of an Avengers film, not enough of a Captain America film. It felt about four hours long, as well as feeling like two or three different movies haphazardly mashed together. It took entirely too long for the primary conflict to come to a head. On the bright side, the new Spider-Man was legit, Paul Rudd (of whom there wasn't enough) is always a highlight, and Elizabeth Olsen is gorgeous. (I'm such a chauvinist, alas.)
