Captain America: Civil War the Movie – 5 stars
I FREAKING LOVE THIS MOVIE. I may also be biased since I’m a Marvel Fan, but Lashaan (DC biggest fan) also gave it a 90% so that’s something right? 😉
Having watched Captain America The Winter Soldier, The Avengers: Age of Ultron, I can confirm that IT WOULD HELP if you watched these movies before this one haha. I haven’t watched any Iron Man movies but I was still familiar with the characters and storylines in the movie so.. I guess you don’t have to watch them, but it can definitely help.
This is the definition of a real action packed-familty-time wise movie. Everything was perfect. For once, I’m really happy of how they introduced all the characters and let them have their screen time. HOLLA BLACK PANTHER ❤ AND DAMNN You won’t be disappointed with Spidey, that is for sure. He was funny as hell hahaha. It was weird though to see aunt May that young.
Civil War is a particular event in the Marvel Universe, with the main 7 issues assembled into a volume by Mark Millar and Steve McNiven.
My rating: ★★★★☆
The theme in the comics is pretty much the same as in the movie: What are the limits of the Avengers? Do people with powers can do whatever they want without regulations ?
Mainly, there are more differences from the comics to the movie than similarities. I am still very happy with the movie so I have to give it to the directors for making it a nice plot out of it. First, the Civil War event in comics is triggered by a particular event not exactly the same one as in the movie but it has the same setting.I love the comics, especially the art ! Oh my god, I’ve read the electronic version and I had to buy the paperback one because the art is worth the money.
The storyline in the comics is definitely better than the movie since we have more insight in what is really going on, the idea’s differences between Captain America and Iron Man and it shows us how the two sides have their ups and downs.
However, the reason why I gave it a 4 and not a 5 is because of the problem’s resolution. It just seems too simple and quick. I mean.. I’ve spent like more than an hour reading about a raging war going on between Avengers and people with superpowers and suddenly *snaps my finger* it resolves just like that.
That little detail didn’t ruin my overall opinion: This is one sick trade paperback! 😀 A lot of characters will be in here, LIKE A LOT. So if you are not familiar with Marvel characters, you might do a little research on who they are,etc. The characters is one of my favourite parts of the story haha I get to see familiar faces and get excited when your favourite characters choose the same side as you #TEAMCAP.
After I read this comic book, I discovered that there are in fact a lot of ties-in that fill the gap, answering questions we might have after finishing this volume. Here’s the list for those of you interested:
