I have been desiring to post my own review of the Captain America Civil War movie but I suck at writing. I am no a writer at all.
Whose side am I?
I love Iron Man more than Captain America but in the movie I am on Steve Roger’s side. The main reason is that Tony Stark is driven by his emotions while Steve is rational. Also I found a gaping
problem hole on the Sokovia Accords.
People with Agendas
First of all, the Chitauri attack in New York was not caused by the Avengers, they were the ones who actually stopped the invasion itself. Next, the Avengers weren’t responsible for the battle in Washington – the blame was on S.H.I.E.L.D. and Hydra. If Hydra’s New World Order was successful and if the alien invasion wasn’t stopped, the number of casualties would have been at least in the millions. Thirdly, the incident in Lagos was nigh unavoidable – you have an extremely dangerous terrorist carrying a stolen biological weapon and is in a densely populated area. What will you do, let the terrorist escape and inflict greater damage? Of course not. And the whole world is acting blind by blaming the Avengers on these incidents.
The destruction of Sokovia is perhaps the only event that can be blamed on the Avengers. But still the ones who should carry the blame are Tony Stark and Banner because they were the ones who created Ultron plus they did it without the consent of the Avengers team. How come Tony Stark wasn’t arrested or put in prison? I agree with Steve Rogers: the Sokovia Accords were created by people with agendas.
There is one thing that bugs me a little bit. I can understand why, in the super-epic airport battle, Vision was mainly observing. He’s super analytical. But Scarlet Witch was actively engaging the opposing side plus she’s super deadly. Like Vision, she has the power to disable and defeat everyone. Why didn’t she use her Chaos Magick to disable or destroy Tony Stark’s suit or War Machine’s? Plus she could’ve used her mind tricks – that brought down most of the Avengers in the Age of Ultron! She would’ve messed up Black Panther and Spider Man’s minds! It’s understandable that she doesn’t want to do it anymore after what happened to Sokovia but still she should’ve used it – it would’ve helped her team.
Who stole the show?
Most were awed and delighted at Spider Man’s appearance. Me? I was smiling and literally laughing out loud at Ant Man’s scenes. He was super funny plus it is awesome at how he can be more powerful than Iron Man because Iron Man IS powerful.
I find the Sokovia Accords as nonsensical. If the world is afraid that the Avengers might turn against them, like if Captain America turned out to be a Hydra double-agent, then the Accords would’ve made sense. But the Accords were made because of incidents that the Avengers weren’t even responsible. It’s crap – dung.
The movie is still immensely enjoyable. I love all the characters in it plus the story overall is really good. It is not as good as the Winter Soldier which is, in my opinion, the best Marvel movie. Again still, the Civil War is immensely enjoyable – I watched it 3 times hah!
I would give it 4 out of 5 stars.
