Civil War: Immediate Impressions

Marvel Civil War

Below are my immediate impressions of Captain America: Civil War. I will spoil the hell out of the movie, so be warned.

– Widow was freaking lovely as always. I love that girl. Scarlet Witch wasn’t too bad either; looks like Widow has a bit of competition!

– Loads and loads of locations.

– Fight scenes were on point from start to finish. Everything about it screamed “exciting.” It was pretty much non-stop action.

– I thought the movie would be too crowded with all the characters, but it actually worked.

– We actually get to see Vision fight, and it’s quite good.

– Black Panther got a fair intro here, and man, was it interesting.

– Ant-Man and Spider-Man were funny as hell. As for the dialogue in general, it was pretty nice.

– The part where Cap and Bucky fought off the German SWAT team was pretty awesome.

– Too many jump cuts.

– Peggy Carter dies offscreen. Sometimes, it sucks to be Cap.

– The Avengers fighting one another was both exciting and heartbreaking to watch. I noticed that they did not smack the hell out of Scarlet Witch even though she was messing with everyone’s attacks; the worst she got was a soundwave to the face. Even Widow got dropped by Ant-Man.

– They fucked up Warmachine.

– This was really an Avengers movie, not a straight Cap movie. And now the movies are starting to intertwine more; hopefully, we don’t end up with comic-style continuity snarls (this movie is fine, though.)

– Lastly, watch this movie! You won’t regret it.

    I thought it was great, especially since Hollywood has restrained from making Cptn. America some social justice dufus. I was afraid they would when I first heard of the movies.

      Likewise. I’m glad it turned out for the better. Winter Soldier was especially good.

        I think Winter Soldier is the better movie… its a lot tighter…

        CW is great fun but its a bit baggy and too long.

          Winter Soldier makes an excellent standalone, though it is better if you watched The First Avenger.

          CW is great fun but its a bit baggy and too long.

          I thought it was just right. If you’re watching it, then you’ve watched the other Cap movies at least, if not the other Avenger movies.
