The story goes like this: With many people fearing the actions of super heroes, the government decides to push for the Anti-Hero Registration Act, a law that limits a heroes actions. This results in a division in The Avengers. Iron Man stands with this Act, claiming that their actions must be kept in check otherwise cities will continue to be destroyed, but Captain America feels that saving the world is daring enough and that they cannot rely on the government to protect the world. This escalates into an all-out war between Team Iron Man (Iron Man, Black Panther, Vision, Black Widow, War Machine, and Spiderman) and Team Captain America (Captain America, Bucky Barnes, Falcon, Sharon Carter, Scarlett Witch, Hawkeye, and Ant Man) while a new villain emerges

Captain America: Civil War is of action, adventure, sci-fi, and thriller genre, which runs for approximately 146 minutes. It's Rated PG-13 in most countries for some intense action sequences. This is probably one of the most anticipated movies of 2016 and I made sure that I get to see it. If you are in for Marvel superheroes engaged in non-stop fighting, then this movie is for you. The special effects used were great and the film is much better to see in 3D. I'm just wondering though why the title of the movie is Captain America when the focus is more on the Avengers...and Spider-Man too. Moreover, there seems to be no plot conclusion or maybe it's just me. Don't get me wrong, it's a very entertaining and fun to watch film. I just expected it to be better.

RATING: 4 out of 5 STARS


Til then...
