The On May 6, I went to go see Captain America: Civil War. (No, I was not emotionally prepared. Yes, I had tissues in my pocket.)
On May 6, I also learned that it is possible to not like Bucky? (HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE?!)
|This is what I have to say to you if you don't like Bucky. |
Sorry. (Actually, not sorry.) (Source)
Now on to the movie review..............................
I have loved Captain America ever since I got into MARVEL. He fights for what is good (no matter what), he loves people, AND HE STANDS BY HIS BEST FRIEND. (Perfect human right here.)
*spoilers in white* He needed a HUGE HUG when Peggy died. (I think I needed one too.)
Did anyone else think it was super random when Cap kissed Sharon Carter? Thankfully Sam and Bucky's faces made the scene better.
Bucky is precious and needs to be protected and hugged. A lot. Civil War has a lot of Bucky. (Specifically Bucky and Steve's epic friendship.) I feel like we really get to know Bucky in this movie. We better know what he went through and that he remembers all of it. All the people he killed. He doesn't want to be The Winter Soldier. He is scared because everyone wants to kill him. DID I MENTION HE NEEDS A HUG?
The character development of Tony Stark in Civil War was amazing. We got to see a vulnerable, PTSD-plagued Tony. This movie broke him.
Look at his face. Does he not look worn out? Sad? Broken? He needs a hug too.
CAN WE TALK ABOUT THE FACT THAT WANDA IS TERRIFIED OF WHAT SHE CAN DO?! *spoilers in white* The first thing she does after sending Crossbones into a building is this:
She has to deal with the trauma of the fact that she can cause bad things to happen very easily. She can also do it for good, but the thought is still there. She couldn't save her brother. She was a part of the reason that so many people died in Sokovia.
He is adorably awkward. He has to get used to, well, life. I'm pretty sure I ship him and Wanda.
|Sorry...I couldn't find a better gif. (Source)|
Why does the actor keep changing? I miss Andrew Garfield. :( Still, Spider-Man was pretty great. He has some of the best lines of the movie.
He says he can't come with Tony because he has homework. His lines were perfection.
I might like him? I'm still deciding. I really liked his character development. *spoilers in white* I especially liked how he realized he was wrong about Bucky, AND gave up his quest for revenge. AND BUCKY MIGHT BE IN THE BLACK PANTHER MOVIE?!
The Other Peoples
Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. I LOVE ALL THE SUPERHEROES!!!
The Stuff I Liked
- The Avengers care about the safety of innocent people.
In a lot of other superhero movies, the "heroes" tear up the earth. This movie really shows the struggle of protecting the earth AND the innocent people.
- The Avengers don't want to fight each other.
They don't want to be "the best superhero". They are both fighting for something they think is right. Tony believes they should fight under the government's control to protect more innocent people. Steve believes that a lot of governments are corrupt and that in order for them to save the world, they need to be independent of the governments.
- Stan Lee's cameo.
- We got to see the Avengers broken.
We know they aren't just people who save the world. They are PEOPLE with the ugly privilege to bare the weight of protecting the world from evil.
- Bucky/Steve brotp. I love this.
|This is the exact moment when I accepted the Bucky/Steve/Sam brotp. |
It's a thing, people.
-There are other things, but they are filled with spoilers. :)
Stuff I Didn't Like
- Martin Freeman didn't have a British accent?
It sounded like a different voice coming from his mouth.
|There he is in the background next to Sharon Carter. You're welcome.|
- There was some language in it.
For a review on the content of the film, I suggest you check out the review on Plugged In. In the words of Captain America:
- Umm...nothing else really?
