Best. MCU. Movie. So Far... This was, in effect, the culmination of everything from Iron Man to now. More specifically, it touched on everything from WInter Soldier to Age of Ultron and a couple of odd points in between. This movie is one of the rare times where the villain doesn't have a world conquering plan or even poses a huge threat. Yet in spite of this, you're hooked from the word 'go'. This movie literally changes everything going forward, specifically with Stark and Rogers. The Russos continue their brilliance in catching just the right tone for this movie and making sure nobody was left behind or left out. Everyone was properly accounted for and it leaves a LOT to question going forward in a good way. Their work on the last two Captain America movies have me so excited for Infinity War, it's beyond words. This was an EXCELLENT movie that was equal parts action and emotion. Ties up and ties off every loose end from the last few Marvel movies. The ending is tough from an emotional standpoint, but it's probably one of the best you'll see from an action flick of this kind.

Plot-wise, "Captain America: Civil War" is pretty decent. Unfortunately, it's marred in two ways. First, about an hour of its run-time is spent with people pointlessly fighting who have no business doing so. It's just a waste of time so we can all go ooh and aah over the special effects. Secondly, the tossing in of boatloads of others from the Marvel universe is just hokey. They should have stuck with the regulars. So, I'm rating this movie at an OK 3 stars out of 5.
I liked this movie alot, but it's super overrated, everyone complained about BVS but the ultimate edition fixed that, this one on the other hand is merely okay to me and I LOVE the MCU but Wanda randomly going from "I hurt people I need to stay inside" to hurting Vision to leave cuz Hawkeye said so was so lame and she got on my nerves, and this Cap and Bucky bromance is getting old like holy crap, but it was worth seeing Spiderman, Antman and Black Panther though.
