Captain America : Civil War | The Corny Movie Review by Navin

Captain America : Civil War

Movies from the Marvel stable have a larger than life, endearing grandiose about them. Perhaps because most of the movies are adapted from very popular characters in their comic books.
I've never been a fan of adaptations, because by the time they are made, a lot of the essence of what made the book a cult is frittered away in creative liberties.
Marvel however keeps its superhero-inspired movies surprisingly close to what we are all familiar with.


With Captain America, Civil War, we have the sequel to The Winter Soldier and the Age of Ultron. Again, both brilliant movies by themselves.
This movie talks about the frailties of their characters and strengths of their personalities.

Visually, this movie is captivating because of the sheer brilliance of their sequences. The characters are endearing and if anything, you are left wanting for more by the end of the movie. Maybe you'll see the Hulk and The Thing fighting it out in a future movie. Who knows.
Civil War will appeal to both sets of fans. It has enough backstory in Star Sprangled glory for the Captain fans and the gadgetry and technical brilliance for Iron Man fans. The face-off at the airport is probably the one that every fan is drooling for.

Would I recommend it? Absolutely. Watch it in 3D or 2D, it really doesn't matter. Just stock up on your popcorn and soda because this movie is an absolute audio-visual page-turner.

My Rating: 8.5

What does the rating mean?
0-4  : Not worth your presence in the same zip code as the TV/Theater.
5-7  : Err... the movie is pretty, but it's definitely missing something. A storyline, that is.
8-10: 'Drop-the-dishes, stop-the-sex, jaw-dropping, that-is-incredible' 2 hours of movie experience
