Well wow it took me awhile to get to this one. Life has been crazy the past while. But finally, this past Saturday afternoon... there we were, at the IMAX with 3D glasses on. YES!
I was worried about this one. I mean how would I ever pick sides? Who would I be rooting for? I knew I needed to see what the situation was to cause this civil war. And I was a bit sad before it even started!
Anyway. So after an incident it's decided that the Avengers perhaps need some guidelines, maybe some direction, some rules to follow. Perhaps maybe they shouldn't just go into a situation with all their guns blazing and do stuff with no consequences.
Sounds good right. But then, perhaps there's something that might need doing where they won't have to go ahead to do it and then what. Then do they just stand back and do nothing.
Ah. It's a no win situation!
Well, in order to keep it spoiler free here I'll say that one of our heroes wants one of the above things and one wants the other. They each recruit their team and suddenly find themselves fighting each other. It's a bit funny and a bit confusing. I couldn't keep track of which one was on which team.
|Let the fight begin!|
But in the end, they join forces again and work together. That is. Until they don't. Because there's a big reveal which changes the game again and then things get serious.
Ah jinjja! It was hard to watch then!
And yes, there's a bad guy behind all of this and he is out for some bit time revenge and he wants to destroy the Avengers from the inside. He did an almost pretty good job of it to.
But let me just say that previous to this movie, Bucky sort of fell under the radar for me but after seeing this actor (Sebastian Stan) at Comic Con... let's just say, I'm a fan. Yeah. For me this movie wasn't really much about Captain America or Iron Man, but more about Bucky. Who's with me?
Bottom Line: Fans of the Marvel Universe won't want to miss it, that's for sure. It's up there with the best of them.
Here's the trailer:
