Captain America: Civil War opens in theaters today and it’s AMAZING! It’s no secret that I love Marvel films but this one might be my favorite although with no Thor or Hulk it’s a hard call to make. The action is epic and intense, and will have you on the edge of your seat throughout the film.
Unless you live under a rock or haven’t questioned the title of the movie, then you already know there is trouble brewing within the Avengers. They divide into two sides. The right side, Team Captain America and the wrong side, Team Iron Man. 😉
This made the action even crazier to watch because watching the Avengers fight bad guys is one thing. Watching the Avengers fight each other is another thing entirely!
While the two big guys don’t make an appearance in this Avengers movie, there are a few more superheroes added to the Avengers mix: Spider-Man, Black Panther, and Ant-Man. Peter told me he was on Team Black Panther and Team Ant-Man. 🙂
Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark’s surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability.
I don’t want to share any spoilers but I can answer the two questions I get asked the most!
Do I need to watch the credits for any extra scenes?
Yes! Marvel pulls through with 2 additional scenes, one halfway through the credits and one at the very end of all the credits. Don’t miss them!
Should I Take My Kids To See Captain America: Civil War
As many of you know my kids are on the younger side, and Captain America: Civil War is rated PG-13. That being said, we took both boys (5 & 8 at the time) to see Star Wars: The Force Awakens, also rated PG-13 so I don’t always follow the suggested parental guidelines. I think my biggest concern would be the intense action sequences throughout the entire film. If your kids are ok with that, then they’d likely be ok with this movie. There are minimal language issues to worry about, particularly for a PG-13 rated film. My kids have seen the original Avengers movie and I think they’d be ok watching this one too although we’ll likely wait until it’s released on DVD and let them watch it at home.
I, on the hand, will likely go see it in the theaters again. 🙂
