Having seen virtually none of the characters' other movies, I have to say I enjoyed this much more than expected. To the movie's credit, it narrowly avoided some of the pitfalls to be expected of such a commercial beast and mostly provided believable and consistent motivations for its characters and events.
Soupir... Bon bah maintenant que le nom est pris, on est sûr de jamais avoir de vraie adaptation des comics Civil War... Le film est pas si bon que ça, très honnêtement, mais Black Panther est très bon et surtout SPIDER MAN EST TELLEMENT JOUISSIF NOM DE DIEU je me suis bidonné chaque fois qu'il était à l'écran. Vivement son film solo !
While it's really hard to keep so many narrative threads intertwined this long, somewhere into the "climactic" battle sequence, the thread was slowly pulled, and the whole experience unraveled. I ended up checking my watch for the time out of boredom, and realized that this is the Title Match people paid to see. The conflict that drives this War is so tenuous, it loses its meaning as soon as the fighting starts.
i love that they're embracing how big the cast is getting now instead of having movies where certain characters aren't mentioned at all.. it's getting to the point where if any of them get into trouble or need help it would be weird if they didn't have someone show up to help them. spider-man and black panther got me excited for their solo movies. also really liked the villain.
Arguably this generation of blockbuster film makers owes as much to 'The Simpsons' as it does to comic books or Spielberg films - there's no fear of injecting a smart subtext or clever dialogue or difficult themes, so long as overall the audiences don't choke on their popcorn. The Russos juggle the egos better than 'Age of Ultron' did, but this doesn't have quite the punch of 'The Winter Soldier'.
Look, I don't go to Hollywood superhero flicks looking for deep ideological messages, but if you dig deep enough there are a few strands here that are jewels. Cap and pals are divided between personal freedom and an encroaching Federal state apparatus (Ironman) that limits their powers to fight injustice. The other strand is outdated Cold War MK Ultra Manchurian Candidate stuff (Bucky). Long live Cap and freedom!
