Review: Captain America: Civil War (USA 2016)

Entertaining enough, for a lumbering behemoth that had to service over a dozen major characters and advance multiple plot threads. The resulting story does, not coincidentally given its origin, feel a bit like a Marvel event comic, but the generally solid caliber of writing, special effects and acting (Elizabeth Olsen aside – she is terrible as the Scarlet Witch) keep it fun and fast-paced.

For whatever reason (the Russo Brother’s competence?), the Captain America films tend to be among the better of the Marvel Cinematic Universe films, while the Thor movies without fail literally put me sleep.

2 1/2 out of 4 stars (Good).
