Review

The super heroes are back!  I know my boys were super excited to see this newest installment in the Marvel b2ap3_thumbnail_ca2.jpgAvengers series at the sneak preview the other night.  Fans have to choose a side, TeamCap or TeamIronMan, as the gang is divided in this movie! Captain America: Civil War is another great Marvel film! 

In this movie, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability when the actions of the Avengers lead to collateral damage. The new status quo deeply divides members of the team. Captain America (Chris Evans) believes superheroes should remain free to defend humanity without government interference. Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) sharply disagrees and supports oversight. As the debate escalates into an all-out feud, Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) must pick a side.

While the movie has plenty of action scenes, especially when the two sides disagree, there are some great scenes where the characters have open communications and try to be true to who they are and how their characters operates on their beliefs!  The movie does a great job of carrying on where the last film left off and continuing the storyline for so many of these characters Marvel has created.  I highly recommend you see the other two Avengers movies before seeing this one. 

The movie opens this weekend nationwide, Friday May 6th to be exact.  It is rated PG13 so be selective before taking small children.  Even though they would like to see the superheroes, it is a heavy movie with violent action scenes and a few curse words thrown in throughout.
