Captain America: Civil War
The apparently growing number of super persons known, or should that be 'working', collectively as The Avengers is in a spot of disagreement. They have signed an accord limiting their activities so as not too over reach their 'authority'. However some members, notably Captain America, think there should be no limits to their authority and they should exercise their powers wherever they feel it appropriate. And so, they are at war with each other. A bloody and violent war yet with enough civility to pause momentarily to exchange wisecracks.
'Captain America: Civil War' is more of the same. It is the same crash bang, whiz bang, knock em over high tech fisticuffs as in the previous super hero movies. And, the band of merry super persons is growing. Quite a club of oddities.
I was bored fairly quickly. The one highlight for me was a flashback scene employing special effects to portray Robert Downey Jr in his teenage years. A great reminder of how good looking he was in his younger days.
The film is long and mostly for aficionados.
