Captain America: Civil War

Captain America: Civil War is now out in the US, so this spoiled European can talk about it more freely.

Overall, liked it, didn’t love it.

It is, quite naturally, very much Winter Soldier part two with a chunk of post-Sokovia Avengers fallout mixed in - a mix that mostly works, but the fairly grounded political thriller with bigger than average stunts doesn’t quite mesh with the craziest super action. Bucky’s story is a Bourne movie that Cap doesn’t quite fit into, let alone some of the others.

It balances most guest stories well, although Ant-Man is largely a fun cameo. Spider-Man (the most important) is the one who really feels tacked on, though, especially compared to how much is done with the other new arrival Black Panther. Still, can't win ’em all.
