Captain America: Civil War is great because it has so much action! It could have been an Avengers movie because it included almost everyone.
When the Avengers cause damage because of their actions, the government thinks its time to put some restrictions to the Avengers. Captain America thinks that they should remain free to do their duties without any government restrictions. Iron Man deeply disagrees. Pretty soon, what was supposed to be a small quarrel quickly becomes a full-on fight and the rest of the Avengers pick sides and fight alongside Captain America and Iron Man.
Captain America: Civil War Review
This movie took an interesting angle because usually the Avengers are working with each other, not against each other.
Why was this movie not an Avengers movie?
Some people may think that this movie could be an Avengers movie because almost everyone was in it. Even I used to think that. However, just because it included almost everyone doesn’t mean it’s an Avengers movie. Here is probably why:
- Thor and Hulk aren’t in the movie. It’s true. If you have watched Avengers: Age of Ultron, you may recall that Hulk leaves after attacking and destroying a lot. Thor also leaves at some point, looking for answers.
- The characters fight against each other, not with each other. Everyone ends up picking sides to the fight and at the end of the movie, there is a big fight scene. Honestly, I never thought that they would physically fight… but they did.
- This is a fight mostly between Captain America vs Iron Man, not the Avengers. The whole thing starts when Captain America and Iron Man disagree on whether or not there should be any government involvement with the Avengers.
Main Rivalries (and SPOILERS ahead)
WARNING!! STOP HERE IF YOU DON’T WANT TO READ SPOILERS!!!!
Though this movie is mainly about one rivalry, Captain America vs Iron Man, there are actually more rivalries.
- Captain America vs. Iron Man
This is what the whole movie focuses on! Captain America and Iron Man fight about whether or not there should be government involvement in the Avengers.
- Iron Man vs. Bucky
At the end of the movie, Iron Man finds out that Bucky killed his parents and he is steaming mad. >:( What he doesn’t realize is that Bucky was the Winter Soldier when he did it, and he had no control over his actions.
- Bucky vs Black Panther
T’Challa (Black Panther) thinks that Bucky bombed the area outside the Vienna International Centre, where he and his father, King T’Chaka were. His dad (who was king of Wakanda then), had already spoken about his support to sign the Accords. They were at the official signing of the Sokovia Accords when the bombing occurred, resulting in the death of King T’Chaka. Bucky was suspected, but he was framed. The true bomber is found out at the end of the movie.
