Captain America: Civil War, the latest from the universe of Marvel, is annihilating theaters this weekend. As with any Marvel film nowadays, critic opinion doesn’t matter much to much. It just offers advice to the studios on how to improve future films.

That said, I’m a critic who adores the Marvel films. I enjoy most of them and even the ones that could use some work are still pretty fun.

I can honestly say that Captain America keeps raising the bar for quality. More likely it’s because of the Russo brothers at the helm. But even still. Winter Soldier was fantastic and Civil War is even better if that can be imagined. I’ve heard many folks say it’s the Avengers film that Age of Ultron should have been. I don’t disagree with that. I wish Disney would have let Joss make the Avengers Ultron film he wanted to. I sure as hell hope they let the Russo Brothers work their magic on Infinity War, because they have a real understanding of the universe.

So back to the film. It’s so many characters we love on screen together again and some new ones. I don’t really need to tell you how great Downey, Evans, Mackie, Rudd or any of the other familiars were. They brought their a game of course. It’s really the new heroes you want to know about.

The casting of Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther was fantastic. His suit looked amazing and I think the audience truly want to see more of the character.

Then there’s Tom Holland in the newly Disney acquired Spiderman Role. I had my doubts at first and was a bit biased to the Andrew Garfield version. But they kept his mouthy behavior and Tom Holland is undoubtedly a very talented actor.  I’m very much looking forward to his solo film now.

The movie is jam packed with action sequences. Tons of fighting, heroes vs villains, heroes vs villain, team cap and team iron man.

Clearly I loved the film and highly recommend it. It’s clear you should see it, just one question remains, which team are you pulling for?
