Entertaining, despite its flaws.

Captain America: Civil War
 tells the story of a political interference in the Avengers’ activities that causes a rift between former allies Captain America and Iron Man.

With the two new additions of Black Panther and Spiderman, who were impeccably cast if I might add, they were swiftly brought in with cheers from the crowd and finally for once, actually portraying a comedic but not cringeworthy Spiderman who had more of a major role than originally expected or shown in the trailer. Black Panther’s backstory was brought in with believable backstory and great motivation to show why he’s doing what he’s doing without the need to oversaturate him in the film.

The action sequences didn’t make you feel tired or overwhelmed, and that’s a big deal especially if you saw it at midnight like I did and didn’t need anymore reasons to fall asleep halfway through the film. Like all the reports that I’d been hearing, the airport sequence was by far the best sequence of the film providing adequate screen time for each of the characters, often making you laugh so hard you were in stitches, and providing a building entertainment.

Marvel continues to prove itself in creating thoroughly entertaining films in a booming franchise unlike the multitude of failures to create a franchise that DC has struggled with for many years – with the exception of Christopher Nolan’s Batman films.

Even though the Captain America solo films got off to a shaky start, they continue to prove themselves as tentpoles for the franchise and probably some of the best films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Infinity War is definitely in good hands and have more faith they’ll do more good with the next Avengers film than the failings of the previous outings.

Film-O-Meter: 9/10.
