CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – We’ve learned by now that even superheroes have their limitations. Captain America and his Avengers crew may have overstepped themselves saving the world in “Captain America: Civil War”.
They ingratiate themselves beautifully with the crowds waiting on line to see this elegant fantasy adventure. The jealous powers that be would rather shut them down.
Sure, it’s okay for the Avengers to rescue the world from conniving evil doers, but there’s no pleasing the politicians in this Marvel comics world.
Captain America’s Chris Evans and Iron Man’s Robert Downey Jr. have no qualms about airing their philosophical differences.
The creative team behind “Captain America: Civil War” knows precisely when to curb the talking and shift back into action mode before the young audience becomes restless. And they have the uncanny knack of know when to tone down the action before repetition sets in.
What a sly sense of humor, Paul Rudd’s “Ant Man” never realized he’d be accepted as Avengers material. And this cleverly conceived and richly entertaining adventure isn’t just for Millennials. To my surprise the script just bristles with intelligence and dry humor, and what a cast filling every role with a meaningful performance.
“Captain America: Civil War” is a solid two and a half hour crowd pleaser, I say deserves 4 stars Look, if Hollywood’s going to spend hundreds of millions of dollars producing a super hero adventure, they might as well make it this exceptional.
