Captain America: Civil War

What a way to kick off the summer blockbuster season. Marvel is on a hot streak and reign king of the cineplex when it comes to superhero flicks. We’ll see how it fares in the box office in the coming weeks, but I’m willing to bet that they will bring in some heavy numbers. Financial logistics aside, Civil War was a blast. There was a beautiful balance of action, plot, humor, and drama while still being enriched with character. Juggling a large amount of characters without the feeling of being overstuffed is a testament to the capabilities that the Russo Bros and Marvel Studios can bring. With each marvel movie that comes out, we are introduced to new heroes. First off, Chadwick Boseman blew my expectations for T’Challa, The Black Panther. From costume to character, the part is nailed perfect. Also, Civil War (re)introduces the famed Spider-man. Taking him back to his highschool years and already establishing his origins, so we wouldn’t have to slug through what we have already seen twice in 15 years. I have to admit, as much as I loved seeing him fight and being Spiderman, I really felt that they added him just because they could. Narratively speaking, the film would have flowed just fine without him, but it worked and it was still fun. There’s this lingering thought of “just how long until marvel runs out of steam?” Not anytime soon that’s for sure. Oh, and stay through the credits. I forget that there are actual people who don’t realize to watch it through. My #nobleopinion is if you haven’t already followed the marvel films in its sequence and this is your first maybe second, you may be out of tune in whats happening especially considering characters and overarching plot development. But if you have been following, then you will, at least should, love Civil War.
