Captain America : Civil War tells about the political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability when the actions of the Avengers lead to collateral damage. The new status quo deeply divides members of the team. Captain America believes superheroes should remain free to defend humanity without government interference while Iron Man thinks differently and supports oversight. As the debate escalates into an all-out feud, The Avengers members including Black Widow, Hawkeye, Vision, must pick a side.

The Russo brothers still are the directors of this Captain America’s sequel from Captain America : The Winter Soldier. This film gives a so much different touch from the other Captain America’s other films. Chris Evans-Captain America gives a little romance with Sharon Carter played by Emily VanCamp while Vision and Wanda Maximoff/ Scarlet Witch gives us hints about what willl happen in the future with their relationship while Black Widow and Hawkeye, War Machine and Falcon gives a nice touch too but not as much as what happens between Iron Man and Captain America, their conflicts getting deeper and deeper until the end of the film. It is not about which side are ya on? But something so much more personal for Iron Man. This movie starts with the Avengers doing their mission in Nigeria. This mission killed 10 innocent Nigerian accidentally. This event made Avengers have to sign an agreement to which made Captain America and Iron Man split into two teams. This movie got quite slow in the middle and hit it to the top for the last hour. But, no matter how kinda bored it is you’re just not gonna live the theater, because its the Avengers. Who doesn’t wanna watch the Avengers, right? Especially they actually fight against each other this time.

The directing was nice while the effects is extremely believable but one thing that is actually quite made our heart lil' bit questioning, is the relationship between Captain America and The Winter Soldier which quite not really worth too fight for. But, we know Captain America. At least they should put a little bit more about their friendship in the past, to make it more believable of why Captain America would fight so hard for him. Just know that, to all the Marvels fan this film will really satisfy your love to all the characters and also might gives you other new characters to love. Like Black Panther, who actually made who ever saw it to get curious and can’t wait to see what will the feature film about him tells about and also Ant-Man and Spider Man that gives a funny nice touch to this ‘Avengers war’. You can see the new Spider Man, Tom Holland on July 2017 with Spider Man: Homecoming. Who ever saw it can say that this new Spider Man is so much better than Andrew Garfield’s version of Spider Man. And for the one who loves Ant-Man or never knew about Ant Man until this film released will like to buy the dvd and know more about this cute character. So, just feel so excited too see what's next from Marvel! And don’t forget to pick a side guys! (Anna-Rose)
