Captain America: Civil War

Hi everybody!

I’m probably quite late off the “Team Cap” or “Team Iron Man” Band wagon, but I just hadn’t had the right company to watch it with. So of course, I seemed to have saved it to watch with my bestfriend, Joy! ❤

I wasn’t too “excited” for this movie to begin with, because I didn’t really like the idea of two great heroes fighting against each other instead of with each other. But after I started playing this new game app on my phone, Marvel Academy.

That got me a little curious about what actually happened in the movie. So just to tell you guys, I have NOT watched the Winter Soldier, I know shame on me, calling myself a Marvel Fan. But I know that they blew up Shield and exposed Hydra, which was all that was really needed to know. OH, and Bucky Barnes being the Winter Soldier and all. To be fair, Ain’t a Captain America fan in the first place. So here goes my review of the movie! Be careful! Spoiler Alerts!

So as most of you already can get from the poster, It is the fight of Red against Blue, Aka. Iron Man against Capt America. While all of you suspect that there would be a great fight between these two teams, then you will not be disappointed, at all.

Let’s start from the beginning, it all really started when the Avengers once again saved the world yet, inevitably accidentally killing/sacrificing innocent civilians. This is done with the motto of “few lives for a million”. I guess that’s always avoided in most superhero movies. They come in, thrash the city, and leave the city being winners. The Avengers franchise had always zoned in on the fact that the civilians are unhappy with this idea of having casualties, which is basically a very humane thing to do.

Well this instigated the government to somewhat “take control” of the power of the Avengers to avoid any more of these casualties. (Psh, as if the government can control them when they are trying to save the world, but ignore that). This splits the Avengers team into Tony Stark’s conservative side, as he has seen too much to let this continue, and Steve Rogers’ do-gooder attitude, the if-not-now-then-when, if-not-us-then-who approach. So Steve refused to sign the international treaty.

At the SAME TIME, there is an evil villian that seemed to be framing Bucky Barnes, aka. Winter Soldier, who is also Capt America’s childhood buddy. Which made everything even MORE complicated and Steve even more sure to not comply with the law. Making him and his team, outlaws. I will try not to spoil too much on who are in who’s team, but all I can say is. The fight scene between these two teams were great. It’s like a dream fight scene of when you were kids reading the comics and thinking “Who will win, Captain America or Iron Man??” Except the casualty that was done on one specific character that you may get some feels from.

The end plot of this movie, I would have to admit that the villain won. The Avengers is not whole anymore, they broke. YES I AM SAD. Honestly I really didn’t like how I felt about the movie. I know it’s not all rainbows and the heroes winning all the time. But the whole idea of a strong team being so heavily split, hurts. So I can’t even tell you whose team I’m on.

I can be sure of one thing, I am Team Avengers.

Avengers, Age of Ultron Movie Review

Hi! I know this may be late for this movie review, but better late than never right? This review will not have spoilers apart from what you may be able to watch via the trailers!
Being a fan of the Marvel franchise, this movie did NOT disappoint! It included characters like Quick Silver and Scarlet Witch! Which came to my surprise that they did not use the X-men cast for Quick Silver. But I guess, if they did, they would have had to link both the avengers and X men worlds together. Which was a smart move to create another alternate universe for the Avengers and X men.

Brief Synopsis:
Following the events of The AvengersIron Man 3Thor: The Dark World, and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Age of Ultron finds the heroes on a campaign to apprehend Hydra loyalists and secure alien technologies (that have fallen into the wrong hands). This brings Iron Man, Captain America, Black Widow, Hulk, Thor, and Hawkeye to the doorstep of Baron Strucker – a Hydra officer who has been experimenting on Loki’s scepter in the hopes of harnessing its power.

Marvel's Avengers Age of Ultron Final International Theatrical One Sheet Movie Poster

The Avengers: Age of Ultron runs 141 minutes and is Rated PG-13 for intense sequences of sci-fi action, violence and destruction, and for some suggestive comments.

I personally don’t read the Marvel Comics to a great extent, and I have always enjoyed the Marvel Universe. However, I found this movie really captivating in terms of the story-line and the team dynamics. It is heart breaking to watch the team breaking apart, knowing they have the same goal of protecting the people in mind. Ultron, a destructive A.I. force hell-bent on playing god, was a twisted character that twisted the core quality of being a hero. I actually enjoyed the Ultron character in this movie very much. He was terribly witty and evil. He pulled the Avengers in new directions and challenge them in unique ways, rather than present an enduring villain on his own.Thats all I can say about it without spoiling. He was the most entertaining character in this movie.

There were many dream scenes in this movie that made the movie slightly confusing and slow. BUT, most of the dream scenes did give us more in-depth understanding of each characters, which was an great! I enjoy watching back stories of the characters come to life, instead of reading it after the movie. The build-up of the character Hawkeye gave the audience a greater insight of the importance of him being in the Avengers team. Which was very much needed as even I was having doubts at a guy shooting explosive arrows being an Avengers. Well this movie pretty much sums up why he is worth it!

The Avengers: Age of Ultron is solid popcorn entertainment and best experienced on the big screen. The visual effects and environment was well produced. There was also another impressive spinning team shot (this time in slow-motion) that was fun to watch! Anyway, it is a recommended movie to watch!

Rating: 8.5/10
