FYI This is a SPOILER FREE Review
The day has arrived. Captain America: Civil War is FINALLY in theatres. I can’t wait to hear what friends and family think because THIS is MARVEL at it’s finest. Before walking into the theatre and seeing this I ranked my Top 3:
- First Avengers
- Captain America: Winter Soldier
- Guardians of the Galaxy
Well, AFTER seeing this film it ranks as #1…For many reasons. #1 being the storyline. Every time you think you chose the right side something comes along to knock your opinion firmly to the ground. I was FIRMLY #TeamCap before the movie started. Throughout the film, I was conflicted. The Russo brothers did an incredible job of showing both sides. So much so that one minute you are firmly #TeamCap another you are firmly #TeamIronMan. The back story is simple enough. The Avengers were created to be the good guys in a world that has plenty of not so good guys in it. However, along the way there has been innocents who have become collateral damage along the way. Tony Stark understands this better than anyone and sees that even a team such as The Avengers needs to be reeled in from time to time. There needs to be some accountability.
Which is where The Sokovia Accords come in. Tony believes that by agreeing to this innocents will be saved. Steve Rogers AKA Captain America has strong beliefs going the other way. He believes that requiring “registration for enhanced individuals” goes against why The Avengers were created in the first place. Then throw in the fact that his former best friend “Bucky” comes back and The Avengers are sent after him following up a disaster leads to even more internal conflict. Thus the choosing of sides…You are either #TeamCap or #TeamIronMan.
So without giving away the big plots of the film you can expect LOTS of action. Extreme fights, crazy chases, intense on the edge of your seat feelings, and more. It’s everything you wanted in VS. movie that some other studios have recently gave a go…and…well…fell short. Captain America brings it. Civil War leaves you conflicted and uneasy and ready for the next chapters of the MARVEL Cinematic Universe at the same time bringing closure to this particular chapter. I think it does well for both fans of #TeamCap and #TeapIronMan and I can’t wait to hear, see, and read reactions. So go see it this weekend. Msg me here, on twitter, on facebook, on snapchat…..basically on social media period because I want to you what you as a movie goer thinks. I’ll wait a couple week and post my SPOILER FULL review then. Until then as they say “I’ll see you at the movies!”
Captain America: CIVIL WAR
Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark’s surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability. Get ready to pick a side and join the nonstop action playing out on two fronts when Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” opens in U.S. theaters on May 6, 2016.
Disney Store NOW has a Personalization Store! What does that mean for you? First choose an item, then character and color, and you can also add a name! Since I’m #TeamCap I chose this really cool iPad mini Case. I went with the case because I travel a lot and my mini iPad is my lifesaver. I can read, watch tv, or catch up on all the MARVEL movies so I chose to show my support for #TeamCap this way. However you can get clothing, tech accessories, home decor, watches, bags, and more. So go ahead and go look and show your support! Mine says Southern Bella’s Ways and I’m still waiting for it to get here, but as soon as it does you can be sure I’ll snap a pic and share it on social media! Whichever side you are on, but of course I want you to be #TeamCap 😉 lol
