Captain America Civil War 

 

We were very interested in watching and reviewing Captain America Civil War. So we splurged for once and purchased it pretty new. Spent just under twenty-two dollars before taxes to get this movie at a local retailer. I read the Civil War comic book series and was curious to see if Holly Weird would keep the fantastic and thought provoking story line. They did not.

The Civil War comic book series is about super heroes and super villains fighting it out and hundreds of people get killed in a small town. This causes the government to enact a Superhuman Registration Act. In essence the heroes and villains are dangerous weapons and need to register with the government. In other words give the government their secret identities. Which could easily lead to the death of their loved ones. Especially since we know the government is so good at stopping illegal hacks. Oh wait with some special class citizens being allowed to have their own private email servers we know their security is pathetic. We also know the government will not punish their special class citizens for breaking the law. The rest of us get punished harshly for the same things.

Captain America Civil War takes a completely different approach. It is overseas, and the UN is the big, bad, evil, vile, and wicked government agency trying to control super heroes because they fear them. An accident happens thanks to a villain blowing themselves up. The corrupt politicians use it as an opportunity to take more control. Some of them like Iron Man thinks it is a good thing. Captain America knows tyranny comes from the loss of freedoms and fights it.

A super villains is in the background of Captain America Civil War splitting the Avengers apart. To me Captain America Civil War should be called Avengers Splintered or Avengers Fractured. It is not much of a Civil War, especially with so few heroes. The villains are not even recruited to hunt down super heroes standing for freedom. Sorry I am still obsessing of other areas Holly Weird got it wrong.

As a movie in itself there are plenty of cool action scenes. There are great moments of different heroes fighting it out. Spiderman versus Captain America is my personal favorite. Spiderman and Black Panther make great additions to this franchise in my personal opinion. Ant Man also has his moments in Captain America Civil War. Winter Soldier (aka Bucky) is central to the storyline in Captain America Civil War. Hydra brain washed him and made him kill. Which is why some of the heroes want to bring him in. Dead or alive, and they would prefer the first one.

There is plenty of blood, explosions, and violence in Captain America Civil War. These heroes do what they believe in. If that means going through other heroes then so be it. There is a lesson there about not being open to compromise. There is also a lesson about the dangers of government control. There are plenty of rah rah bonus features on the Captain America Civil War Blu-ray disc.
