When one hears the words “civil war” these days, the classic nineteenth century war is the last thing on his or her mind. The wait for U.S. Marvel fans came to end on May 6. “Captain America: Civil War” was released at last. Like many enthusiasts, I went to the Thursday night premiere, determined not to let Twitter, Tumblr, or any other social media site spoil the movie for me. As I took my seat in the packed theater, I couldn’t believe that my dream of seeing this movie was finally coming true. Overall, the movie was good. Like all Marvel movies, the fight scenes were big and electrifying, the special effects didn’t seem like effects at all, and the film locations used were perfect; however, the heart of “Captain America: Civil War” was the relationships between the characters. Steve Rogers and Tony Stark, who are supposed to be a team, turn against each other. In doing this, the other Avengers are torn apart, forced to choose sides. Another relationship that the movie focuses on is the one between best friends Steve and Bucky Barnes (aka the Winter Soldier). The movie doesn’t go as deep in exploring this relationship as I would like, but it will suffice for now until “Avengers: Infinity War.” In addition, a few new characters are introduced in this movie like Spider Man and Black Panther who I believe are a great addition to the MCU. Despite the good, there were a couple things in the movie that I didn’t like, but I won’t spoil it for anyone. You’ll have to watch it and decide for yourself.  With all this said, “Captain America: Civil War” definitely ranks high on my list. I recommend everyone to see it ASAP. Oh, and be sure to stay for the all credits, but you already knew that.
