It is hard to believe it is already here. It is May 6th and there is another Marvel movie out. It has a lot of characters in it, some new, some that we haven’t seen for a few movies, others absent completely. Time flies when you are watching summer blockbusters.
I never felt like this movie was going to be bad. After Ultron, when you see a line up like this some might be a bit worried. I have had that conversation a few times already. I didn’t feel like this was going to be the case. It was such an important moment in Marvel history to mess it up, and the Captain America movies have been pretty solid. So I am happy to report that they did a great job with Civil War. Dealing with a lot of story, they managed it very well. Smaller characters, introductions, reintroductions, Cap and Iron man, it was all handled in a way that was clear, fun, and exciting. I didn’t feel lost, bored, or that the movie got too lost in what it was trying to do.
The movie still dealt with the Winter Soldier and I liked the story line very much with Bucky and his struggle. This had to be a subplot to the larger Civil War and I think it fit in very well. The introductions of Spider-Man, is it 3.0 now, and Black Panther were excellent. They gave them the right amount of time and just enough to give us something to look forward to in the future. I was worried I might be hitting peak Marvel but this movie kept me interested and excited for the future.
I also saw this movie in 3-D and noticed the 3-D in it. Which is a rarity now. I don’t know if I would go so far as to say it was worth it to go see it in 3-D but I did think to myself, well this looks quite good in 3-D. So take what you will from that. I would say this is a full price watch this weekend if you can movie. So get out there and pick a side.
