Both were pretty weak to be honest, but I'd go with CW, because it was better put together.

SS was poorly edited and the fundamental idea of the film (the mission itself) was flawed.

CW. Both were very good. SS is on the same level as Avengers or Age of Ultron. CW is just below Winter Solider.

CW. But before this thread turns into the inevitable hate thread, I'll say I like SS alot too.

Squad for me. It was a deeper story and the whole thing was executed much better than Civil War. Civil War wasn't bad and a ton of fun but it did well because of all the characters. It's what people wanted to see and Marvel delivered.

The mission wasn't the "fundamental idea". The idea was to have a character-driven plot. Avengers suffered from the same thing, but was ultimately better due to superior pacing and editing.

How is this even a question...?

Rotten Tomatoes has this trainwreck at 27% and other reviewers aren't being that much more generous.

There are individual scenes from Civil War that outshine the entire Suicide Squad movie.

I'm surprised I'm seeing "both were great" or "civil war was ok". Opinions are opinions but I thought civil war was generally loved. Just surprised.

Personally I say civil war trumps squad by a mile. Only thing better about squad was some of the sets felt more theatrical. Idk how to put this but basically where (the squad were when they all formed a shield around Flagg) was a more interesting looking environment than the empty airport. The action, however, was not.

Civil War felt too forced and rushed with over-emphasized reactions at times. Nice fight scenes. Plot was weird in that it was some crazy guy with some complex scheme to get our heroes to fight each other. Wait, what? I've seen that before somewhere..... :-D

I did enjoy Suicide Squad quite a bit more. My daughter went with her friends last night when she thought it might be slower, said the theater was still packed, and they all came back saying they loved it too. It's hard to call it DC wank considering she didn't like BvS and is a huge MCU fan.

Liking something isn't DC wanking, obviously. If a certain group of people feel insecure about people liking a DC film it makes a person wonder why another person having a different opinion bothers them so much.

Seriously, CW had the villain plan on Tony Stark arriving at just that time to see the video? Please, that's beyond suspending disbelief, even for fans of the movie. I like both. I Iiked Suicide Squad better. If that fact that it's a DC film bothers some people, well I guess that'll pass eventually.

his plan was to show ironman the video , doesnt matter how, he could've :
a. leaked it on the net
b. just left it in the bunker, both cap and bucky know where he was and cap already tried to tell ironman earlier. zemo gave cap credibilty when he purposefully called for room service knowing that they would find the fake bucky mask and dead interrogator in his room. ironman would still see this in the news via friday.

it was a smart play considering bucky escaped his mind control earlier and would likely tell his allies that he found the man who framed him and he knew where he was going.

the fact that tony showed up when he did was one of many out comes,the directors gave us the most entertaining and conflicted one.

Suicide Squad gets stomped by Civil War after pouring whiskey from it's kidney onto SS. Civil War is a masterpiece, Suicide Squad is one of the most poorly put together and muddled things I've seen in ages. One of the only movies in years where I was in awe at how bad the movie was.

Nope. Read my comment history if you wish to verify but I'm not using the lowest form of wit at the moment.

I enjoyed suicide squad... But Civil War was one of the greatest CBM's I've ever seen. In fact, I'd say it was the greatest I've ever seen. The fact that people have to lowball it as much as possible shows how good it was. It reminds me of people say The Last of Us is overrated or average when it's one of gamings greatest achievements story wise. CW was the superior film and easily the best CBM this year.

Thank you for saying this. Took the words right out of my mouth. Civil War is not only one of the best superhero films ever made, it is THE best I've ever seen (contested only possibly by The Dark Knight), and the best movie I've seen the entire year, and instantly in my Top 5 movies of all time. Might sound like I love this film intensely, yeah, I do.

I totally agree with the low-balling thing too.

High-5!

Mismatch. Civil War exceeds SS in pretty much every way: story, plot development, writing, acting, and pacing.

Having said all that I did enjoy SS, it floundered abit in that 3rd act which did little to help it.
