    Synopsis


    Captain America: Civil War
    In this superhero epic, the denizens of the Marvel Universe are forced to pick sides when Captain America (Chris Evans) and Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) come to blows over ideological differences. After a mission involving a new Avengers squad led by Cap ends with several civilian casualties in Lagos, the team are asked to sign an agreement that would force them to take orders from a United Nations panel. Tony Stark (aka Iron Man) pressures Cap to accept this new arrangement, in part because he feels deeply guilty about his own past recklessness; Captain America, however, fears that the Avengers will only be corrupted by bureaucracy. Their disagreement eventually escalates into all-out war when Cap's old friend Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan), now a brainwashed assassin known as the Winter Soldier, reenters the picture. Captain America: Civil War brings back former Avengers characters such as Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), War Machine (Don Cheadle), Falcon (Anthony Mackie), and Vision (Paul Bettany); it also drags into the fray low-rent superhero Ant-Man (Paul Rudd), and introduces both the powerful African prince Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) and a new, younger incarnation of Spider-Man (Tom Holland). Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo. ~ Jack Rodgers, Rovi

      Epic W/Out Being Groundbreaking

      Super hero movies, as we know them today, must walk the difficult line of being somewhat grounded in a reality audiences can relate to while at the same time embracing (not just accepting, but embracing) the inherent goofiness of the facts of the matter. In a broad scope, this is about guys and girls in colorful suits with silly nicknames duking it out with what tends to be (at least in the Marvel Cinematic Universe) a flavor of the week villain that does just enough to further the arc of what remains to be built in this ongoing series. What grounds these colorful characters sporting strange labels is the repercussions of their actions. The Avengers can shut down an entire alien race while destroying New York in the process and widely be regarded as the heroes of the scenario, but the fact of the matter is that if this were to happen in our reality there would be thousands upon thousands dead and even more injured. With the third Captain America film, Civil War, Marvel has found it the necessary time to begin giving their heroes more heady spaces to wander. Sure, there is still a bigger antagonist than either Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) or Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) in Civil War that leads to the plot being more run of the mill than I was hoping things might go, but there is enough justification and perspective to this villains plan that we go with what we're being offered. Perspective is a key word here. Not only in the driving force that puts the team at odds over the still brewing conflict concerning The Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan), but for these superior beings to take into account the consequences of their actions and come face to face with their shortcomings-the film more or less exploring how they deal with such realizations when they're brought up as potential charges. Captain America is a firm believer in consequentialism in that his goals are morally important enough that any method of achieving them are acceptable with the understanding of the unfortunate caveat that he will never be able to save everyone. It is in exploring such territory and being bold enough to bring their heroes face to face with such a reality that Marvel exceeds in walking that difficult line. Captain America: Civil War is very much a Marvel movie in that it is full of bright colors, genuinely funny quips, and some solid action set pieces, but bringing these characters (and these performers) into more interesting dynamics with one another notches up the reality factor with the result being an admirable balancing act that deserves to be applauded.

      Superhero Teambuilding & Division At its Best

      NOW, this is proof that film-makers and film companies can actually make outstanding Superhero films. (In contrast to the horrendous-blasphemy that is BVS) The film introduces new characters to the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) all the while adding even more depth to the characters we know and love already. The pacing of the film permits us to learn of and (more importantly) feel the motivation of these characters. The Superheros are placed in a new position of control and the question of whom holds that control. Do the heroes register and submit under Government control or do they remain "rogue" and free to choose how they act? The beauty is that this film actually gives the audience ample reason to reflect and come to their own conclusion and belief in what is "right". Even if you go into the film with your mind set on either "for" or "against" the idea or Superhero registration the film causes you to question whether or not that truly is the best course of action. These questions are very "grown up" and "adult" which is hard to do in a film without emptying all the "fun" out of it. (I'm looking at you, BVS) HOWEVER, this film manages to address those very adult questions and maintain the "fun" and excitement of a Marvel Superhero film. (GREAT JOB, MCU) I recommend you do a little bit of back story research so that you may have your own view on the matter and trust me that by the end of the film you will be questioning everything. :) Enjoy it. I know you will.

      Very limited edition Best Buy exclusive

      Aside from being a vastly divergent version of the comic book Civil War epic crossover event, this was a pretty good movie. Factoid- the main reason for this movie was Disney got wind of Warner Bros releasing an epic Batman vs. Superman movie and the corporate Disney bigwigs decided for a similar match-up. What better showdown that Captain America vs. Iron Man? Yes, there was a lot of changes from the comic. Yes, Crossbones and Agent 13 show up but *spoiler* neither of them shoot Cap as in the comic book. No, Tony Stark isn't the director of SHIELD. Scarlet Witch, not Nitro was the one who killed innocent civilians. No massive crossover, just 14 characters. No one dies. Still a decent movie with lots of action. These are the same idiots who are doing the Infinity War without the Silver Surfer and Adam Warlock. But I digress. The movie has been reviewed by others but rarely does anyone review the packaging, especially if it is a limited Best Buy edition. As steel-books go, this sold out fast. The biggest bummer's are that unlike many other steel-books, the title is not on the cover and there isn't a DVD in the set. Seems like the artwork was rushed or cobbled together last minute as the embossed cover, Iron Man's helmet nor Cap's shield was textured, only the "rip" that went down the middle. Even the side title was extremely small and nearly impossible to read. I really appreciate Best Buy putting out these exclusives but this has got to be one of the most lackluster steelcase editions for a new releases next to the Guardians of the Galaxy. I'm just a hardcore comic book geek who loves his limited editions, even the meh ones.

      Not just action - The Avengers dig deeper

      Almost don't know where to start... I have watched various friends serve in the US armed forces, and come back with varying degrees of PTSD. I am not advocating an anti-war sentiment, but acknowledging that there are consequences to any decision, be it action or inaction. But to see how it has shaped Iron Man into what he has become has been an interesting journey. I am one of those who does not see the Iron Many films as lighthearted, but as a commentary on how many people choose to deal with stressful, life-and-death, or even not so serious decisions. Some navigate this more successfully than others. On the other hand, we have the titular character, Captain America. He has been dealing with, and avoiding, his own issues, having been dealt a much different, but no less serious set of circumstances in his life. Now, watch the very intensely emotional fallout in what could easily be termed the "darkest" Marvel film set in the Avengers framework... It was a ride that had me locked in both excitement and dread the entire time. And watching it again at home (in excellent 3D) had the same effect, despite knowing the outcome. Bravo to Disney/Marvel for pulling this off, and creating a very entertaining piece of action film that somehow manages to address so many societal issues without the heavy-handed attitude of many documentaries. This is an incredibly made film, despite some plot holes, if you really wanted to be picky. It is still a comic book movie, but with a depth that you just wouldn't expect. Now to the product, separate from the film - The steelbook is absolutely gorgeous. It matches the previous Captain America release (Winter Soldier) in the quality of the steelbook packaging, so it makes for a great collector's piece, if that's your bit. The cover art is even terrifically balanced and appropriate to the story. The 3D blu-ray inclusion was almost obligatory, given the recent Marvel releases, but it is appreciated by those of us who still like and believe in home theatre 3D being a potentially amazing experience. The extras were honestly far more than I will ever care to watch, and round out a very impressive product. So, combine a very fun, intense film with a terrific package, features galore, and you get a complete win.

      Why 3D is fun

      So a lot of the reviews are about the movie, which personally I think was not much of a Captain America movie and more of an “Avengers” movie. But that’s good as it gives me liberty to speak about the 3D version and the snazzy Steekbook. First the Steelbook: Wow, what can I say. Beautiful art on the outside, fantastic art on the inside. I almost wish the discs weren’t in there just so you can see the sweeping cast portrait inside. The case is of course very durable and sturdy. It holds the discs in very solidly and I don’t see that it has the problem other cases have of loose discs. Overall, I’m very pleased with this add on. I wish all physical copies put this much effort into the case as works of art. Second the 3D version: Again, this is about the 3D version of the film. So my opinion is, 3D is just fun and this edition of the film is no exception. It really gives it some depth and helps bring the film to life. The quality is mostly crisp and clear, and as it seems to be with al Disney 3D versions, and is handled superbly. The effect is very clean both for foreground scenes and background as well. They have certainly mastered the art. We watch out movies on a 4k 60” LG TV with 3D and a Playstation 4. It uses passive 3D for viewing and seems to usually produce less crosstalk. However, I did notice more on Civil War than say in Zootopia. Not too much to where the image is bad or obnoxious, but enough that it was mildly distracting in just a few scenes. Still between the 3D edition and the standard that comes with it, I’d watch it in 3D every time, hands down. Now if I can just get them to release it in 4K…

      STEELBOOK GLORY

      This movie is stunningly amazing! Both with its ensemble cast and storyline. Far more entertaining than Avengers Age of Ultron. This particular edition is obviously limited luckily I pre ordered it in advance to pick up at the store. You have to especially if your planning to get a steelbook version of any Marvel movie. They sell out quick espicially with a big movie like that. Always order a month in advance or two weeks prior. The stores are limited to a very small number of copies. On top of that my local Best Buy which is the one located in Los Feliez is always packed with movie fanatics(such as myself) As soon as those doors open they sell out within the first five minutes. I know from experience.. In this case that it was happen. Unless your doing pre order then you are guaranteed to have a copy for sure. I highly recommend this version over the standard bluray copies or DVD. Since it is a collectors edition. It's a few more dollars but worth it. Again on the store pick up/online pre order. I highly suggest doing so because the last time I wasn't so lucky with the Mad Max Fury Road steelbook. On top of it selling out I drove to five different best buys just to find out all copies sold out through pre order. Ended up spending three times more than what I should of through EBay. Just giving all my fellow movie buffs the heads up in case you weren't aware of this kind of ordering!

      Definitely one of my top favorite Marvel movies

      Posted
      KillaKev117

      One of the better movies in the MCU by far! There was a lot of great action and kept me on the edge of my seat. the airport battle was one of the most epic fights I've seen in any movie. Definitely recommend this movie to anyone who is a fan of the MCU. I picked up the steelbook and it looks absolutely awesome! The crack separating Captain America's shield and Iron Man's mask on the cover is embossed (or debossed, don't really know the word for it). The steelbook has a matte finish to it which gives it a really nice feel. The steelbook version comes with 3D, Blu-Ray, and digital versions of the movie. If you are a steelbook collector or just a big Captain America fan, the steelbook is definitely the way to go. Great movie, great steelbook, great purchase!

      Friendships torn assunder

      Steve Rogers is the heart and soul of the Avengers, but he is torn with his struggle to help redeem his lifelong friend, Bucky. The rest of the Avengers are torn on whether to support Captain America or endorse control by the U.N. Captain America does a good job of pulling support his cause; just as Iron Man does for his. In the end, the epic fight ensues as battle lines are chosen. Several members of both sides are apprehensive on fighting as they "pull their punches", but then they are all still friends at the end, for the most part. The "civil war" between the Avengers allows the viewer to enjoy the multitude of powers that the combined team of Avengers possesses. It even brings in some new characters. Not sure why there is a "new" Spiderman instead of bringing in one of the previous actors for that part, but at the end of the movie, it is revealed that Spiderman will return. Ultimately, Steve Rogers and Tony Stark come to terms over the dispute about one of the missions the Winter Soldier performed when he was under Hydra's control. Steve is able to help Bucky go back into a cryogenic state with the help of the Black Panther.
