Movie Captain America: Civil War (2016)

20170105
This movie had a lot of great action, but it suffered a bit in regards to its story. Explicitly, I felt there were gaps that could have been filled in.

Captain America (Chris Evans) and Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.)

On a related note, Ant-Man got some good action moments, but felt more out of place compared to Spider-Man.

In the end, I would nevertheless recommend it as an action movie. I would also add that I wish I had the opportunity to watch Captain America: Winter Soldier (2014) beforehand.

Instant Comments:
Nice use of his shield. Cooler than previous movies.

Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) and T'Challa (Chadwick Boseman)

Wait, is that Punisher?
What? What happened to Pepper? [Answered shortly]
It is unfair. Given at one point they saved the world.
"Who's putting coffee grounds in a disposal?"
She looks slightly different, but I recognized Sharon Carter (Emily VanCamp) as being the leading actress in Everwood.

Spider-Man uses his web to snag Captain America's shield

Black Panther?
Hmm. I didn't watch Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
Sam Wilson: So you like cats?
Steve Rogers: Sam...
Sam Wilson: What? Dude shows up dressed like a cat and you don't wanna know more?

Spider-Man (Tom Holland)

Martin Freeman!
Ha. "I know a guy."
Hahaha. "Spider-Boy"
"Not even your unusually attractive aunt?"
This young Peter Parker is a nice angle.
"I'm gonna sit here so you move away."

Falcon, Ant-Man (Paul Rudd), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), Captain America, Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), and Winter Soldier.

Lol, they smile after his kiss.
"Hey Buddy I think you lost this!"
Haha. 1 vs. 2. I'd say Spider-Man steals the show here.
Lol. Thought it was a water truck.
"They're not stopping."
What was Ant-Man's motivation for joining? I think that was a little weak.

Iron Man and War Machine (Don Cheadle)

Haha. References the Hoth scene in Star Wars.
Holy shit.
"Sorry." [Tony gives him a blast.]
Tony uses the term "manchurian candidate" to refer to Bucky being someone who has been brainwashed to execute orders upon receiving a sequence of code words.
"The living aren't done with you yet."

Falcon (Anthony Mackie)

Haha. Stan Lee. "Are you, Tony Stank?"
