WOW THIS WAS AWFUL...
(Quick Unprofessional Review)
You did it again. Take another bow Marvel!
The 1st hour is good. There’s a lot of development. It did feel a tiny bit slow but it all paid off. The last hour and 15 minutes are magnificent. Russo Brothers are perfect to take over the MCU! They are 2 for 2!
Ant-Man, Spider-Man, and Black Panther stole the show! I had my concerns about the new Spider-Man. After seeing the movie, they are all gone. They made me care about almost every character within just 2 hours and 15 minutes! I never was a big fan of Cap, Iron Man, and Bucky but they even made me care about their conflict. I felt for them. It got me all emotional and $h!+. As a huge comic book reader, I’m still blown away to see it all come to life on the big screen. It made me feel like a kid while seeing all the heroes go at it. It was like I was reading the comics and watching the cartoons once again.
The action was top-notch. There is no nonsense. All the heroes go at it and I loved every minute of the fights!That one Ant-Man moment had my jaw on the floor! I knew it was going to happen some day in the big screen but it still surprised the hell out of me. I was giddy every time Spider-Man and Black Panther came on screen. Everything felt natural. I'm amazed how they connected all the characters and threads together to create such an authentic film! I enjoyed all the characters involved in the film. Everybody had their own little moment. Vision, Scarlet Witch, Hawkguy, Black Widow, War Machine, and Falcon also kicked major a$$ in their own ways. No one came out looking weak to me.
I tried hard to find flaws with the film. I would really have to go deep and nitpick. Even though the villain of the film, Baron Zemo was better than the usual bland Marvel villain i that we are used to, he was still the weakest part of the movie. They could have done better with the villain’s motivations.
If BvS was universally received well, we could have had 3 for 3 for CBMs this year so far. Snyder and WB, YOU DONE MESSED IT ALL UP! Though, one area where DC films/BvS has edge over Marvel films is visuals. There’s nothing wrong with Marvel’s visuals but Zack Snyder/DC films do a good job making their movies feel epic and cinematic.
Other than that, Civil War gives Marvel another Win. It is definitely in my top 3 of the Marvel films.
P.S. The new Aunt May is hot as hell.....
