civil war

I know I’m late on this compared to everyone else and you’re all dying to know my thoughts, but I’ve been dealing with college graduation and haven’t had the time to see it until yesterday.  Will my review be worth the wait? Probably not, but here it goes anyway.

Civil War is the third entry in the Avengers series Captain America series as the team of heroes we’ve grown to (mostly) love falls apart after the countries of the world institute measures that would give them oversight over the superheroes.  One side, lead by Tony Stark’s Ironman, agrees with this and signs on, while the other side, lead by Captain America, disagrees and begins operating “outside the law”.  Conflict ensues and we have our movie.

Alright, now I’m a little more excited for this movie.  The first trailer they released really just confused me more than anything and didn’t really pump me up for it.  This one is a little more clear. Who exactly is on each side is shown and the reason for the fight is defined a little better, although I’m still a little unsure about that.  I don’t understand how what seems like a little difference of opinion about whether the superheroes should be controlled a little bit turns into a fight where they are trying to kill each other.  It seems like a bit of an overreaction and a stretch, but I’ll save too much talk about that until I see the movie.
