With a budget of $250,000,000, and gaining it all back with an estimate of $179,139,142 on opening weekend with a gross of $306, 645, 905, It’s clear to see that the most anticipated Marvel movie of 2016 has easily gained their fans and audience attention with great characters, smashing effects, and an excellent directed movie. Easily a masterwork from the same directors of Captain America: The Winter Soldier. This film has made more money than Deadpool (2016) and Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. A sure fire winner to end the Captain America trilogy and to begin the Marvel Phase III.

 

The story picks back up where Winter Soldier left off with Captain America (Evens) looking for the Winter Soldier. But after some miss understandings and catastrophes, the worldwide superheroes, or more preferably The Avengers, must be put under check from the government to not let things get out of hands. With both Iron Man (Downey Jr.) and Captain America having opposing sides, lines are drawn and fight will begin. All the while, the evil organization Hydra is still blooming with evil and forming another formidable plan.

The film makes itself a landmark in terms of great action movies. Whether or not anyone has seen the first three Captain America movies, this third one allows to develop more into the story and add new and different subplots to keep everything contained for further sequels in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The story is fresh, with layer of subplots filled in that seems too much for a movie, but are executed perfectly that doesn’t make critics or audiences scratch their head wondering what was missing. It’s rich in detail, and allows audiences to have fun and never feel board.

The characters, as well, are all given their own story arc and origin. The superhero Black Panther (Boseman) is given a story arc to fill in before his stand alone movie in 2017 or 2018. His characters is strong and played highly to sympathies with. Other characters known in their stand-alone movie or previous films are expanded and developed stronger to be more relatable and capable of being important to the story.

The effects are also a gem. Mixing CGI with other computer and practical effects are what keep the movie from being uninteresting, the action is topped to eleven, powerful in its ability to suck audiences into the seating. Character dilemma is also a powerful intake into the film. In the film, it’s obvious that Iron Man and Captain America are fighting opposite sides, but the film doesn’t portray them as either bad guy. Each of them have their own discussion, arguments, and way of planning out their ideas. This makes it all the more better when you can relate with either character.

The action mixed with the humor is superb, fast high octave and just as supreme to how Captain America: Winter Soldier was. The fights have become legendary and are unable to be skipped or frowned upon.

All in all Captain America: Civil War is a gigantic achievement in effects, character, story, and action. It’s a fun, decent, and enjoyable movie to relive each and every time. Final verdict: Captain America: Civil War rates 10/10. Masterpiece.
