How is the Captain America Civil War movie? First impression, it was great and I mean really great because it was tonnes of fun. Like most movies though I have to watch it again to come up with a verdict if actually liked it and the story or I was just blinded by my initial excitement and the anxiety of waiting for this movie. For now I’ll just talk about the characters in the movie.
He’s Cap: the black-and-white guy. I mean that in a very good way. Plus he has a scene where I find to be one of the best scenes in the movie if you don’t include the absolutely epic airport brawl.
Bucky aka Winter Solider
Sebastian Stan did an excellent job with his character Bucky and you will feel bad for him: he went through a lot before as the Winter Soldier and again he is at the crosshairs of almost everyone. It sucks when you’re marked or used as a means to an end.
He is my favourite. He literally made me laugh out loud. I find him to be more funny than Spider Man. Also Ant Man is probably the second or third most dangerous superhero – behind Wanda and Vision. Maybe he can fight toe to toe with either of the two. Don’t underestimate the… Aaant Man (with Darren Cross voice)!
I am a bit biased here because I have a crush on Olsen but she is my second favourite character in the movie. She’s human and fragile but she can bring down Vision who already has god-like powers. Imagine what she can do to the other superheroes.
Renner’s Hawkeye seems to get better and better but unlike Age of Ultron, Hawkeye takes a back seat here. He is still important to the movie in my opinion.
I think he is the wittiest superhero. His humour contrasts nicely with others like Spider Man and Bucky.
Team Iron Man
Robert Downey Jr is one of my favourite actors ever. He did a brilliant job here: you can easily understand why Tony Stark does things in the movie – they make sense. Still, I find him to be the irrational one here. I love Iron Man but in this movie I am Team Cap all the way. Plus Scarlet Witch is on Cap’s team!
He’s my least favourite character here and I think it is because he’s the staunchest in supporting the Accords.
Vision is creepy. I can imagine a sci-fi horror movie with him as the antagonist.
Like everyone, Tom Holland seems to be the best Spider Man yet. And he is super strong – just imagine a kid with the strength of the Hulk. And yes, he’s hilarious!
He’s super-duper-cool! Acting by Chad Boseman is superb and the Wakandan accent sounds so nice.
Black Widow is the same as in previous movies which is great. Like Hawkeye, Black Widow does not have a spot in the limelight, like Spider Man or Ant Man, but she has parts that give meat to the movie. Also I love the relationship between her and Cap and if you’ve seen the Winter Soldier you would appreciate their relationship even better.
I really like Daniel Bruhl’s character. I have read in some reviews how Zemo, like most Marvel villains, is wasted here again. I don’t agree. I think Marvel has done a great job in portraying him and I think we’re only seeing the tip of the iceberg.
I don’t want to give away on which side she’s on. If you haven’t seen the Winter Soldier, Sharon Carter is a former SHIELD agent turned CIA. I don’t know why this comes into my mind when I describe her but to me she is a person with a heart of gold. She only has a minor role but you won’t forget her here for sure.
Thunderbolt Ross only has a minor role as well – primarily to convince the Avengers to sign Sokovia Accords and see the same Accords implemented. He’s like Tony Stark’s boss here. Nothing to love or hate him. I find him as a nice guy.
