The story of Captain America: Civil War follows the First Avenger: Steve Rogers (Chris Evans); who now leads a new team of heroes. After a mission goes wrong, the governments of the world seek to control the Avengers by turning into an asset. It does not help matters that Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) and a handful of Avengers are eager to sign with the government which creates a wedge between Capt and his teammates. To make matters worse Steve's best friend, Bucky (Sebastian Stan), becomes the prime suspect of a bombing which makes him a target for the government, Stark and a vengeful Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman). This leads to Capt and teammate Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie) to help Bucky escape his pursuers which solidifies the rift between Rogers and Stark that leads to an all out battle between heroes.
Captain America: Civil War is indeed a solid superhero film, but that does not make this blockbuster invulnerable. The movie is little too ambitious for its own good as the likes of story and characters loose their effectiveness due to their execution. Yet what Civil War does well it definitely exceeds at its strengths. The film features both captivating story elements and great performances; while the action makes this movie a must see for this year. So while Civil War may not be the defining superhero film, this blockbuster is still a dynamic entry for both Marvel Studios and the summer of 2016.
