Captain America: Civil War is one of the best movies I have seen so far this year, it meets up to the anticipation, but maybe not to the hype.

The movies fight scenes are epic and the introduction of Spiderman into the mix is an all too welcoming event that you have to see to believe.
Spiderman held his own in this movie filled with notable heroes who have made their mark in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and he is a welcome addition to the mix. Sony holds the right to the web slinger and they struck a deal with Marvel to release a Sony and Marvel produced Spiderman film, titled Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017). So this marks the intro of our new web slinger Tom Holland.

Back to Civil War, the scripting of this movie was on point although the name is taken from the Civil War Comic by Mark Miller, it only borrows the story arc, concepts and art and diverts along the way, working towards Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 and 2.

Disney and Marvel have perfected the art of making movies about our heroes and making those movies the talk of the town when they are released.
When you think of the hero Captain America, he is only a key figure in the comic world and not very popular outside it like the Spiderman, Batman, Wolverine or Superman. But what Disney and Marvel have been able to achieve with these three movies, Captain America: The First Avenger (2011), Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) and now Captain America: Civil War is to make this hero popular to the people who just knew him by passing.

The movie is an all action packed film, and although this is a family movie (Disney style) the action feel is cool, direct and not at all cartoonish. The movie touched some very touching themes and it did a good job in the story telling where we see our heroes go at each other, and yet still try to remain friends.

The movie starts in 1991 by showing us how the Winter Soldier is controlled by a set of words spoken in German in an order. Bucky was dispatched to kill someone and get more serum for creating super soldiers.

In the present day, Captain America and a team were in Lagos trying to capture a villain which led to the death of many Wakandan humanitarian workers, which brought about the main story arc which made the UN ask the Avengers to register and be kept under control.

Captain America and some members of Avengers refused to sign, but Ironman and the rest signed on.

During a UN meeting the Wakandan king was killed by a bomber who looked like Bucky. The UN sent people to capture or kill Bucky, but Captain America and Falcon came to help him escape. Caps plans to free Bucky failed when Black Panther got involved.

Bucky was caught, but the doctor sent to examine him brainwashed him again and sent Bucky on a rampage. Captain America and Falcon saved him and took him to a place for the brainwashing to wear out.

The UN then sent Ironman with a team of Black Widow, Black Panther, War Machine, Vision and Spiderman to capture Captain America, Falcon and Bucky. Cap aware of their coming got aid from Ant-man, Hawkeye and Scarlet Witch to stop the Iron Man team from getting Bucky, Cap and Falcon.

If you have not bought your ticket, please preorder it now and go see this film that packs a punch.
