Captain America: Civil War

Captain America Civil WarChris Evans reprises his role as Captain America who, after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, desires for the superheroes to remain free to defend humanity without government interference while Iron Man (Robert Downey, Jr.) supports government oversight and accountability. (146 minutes)

On some extremely superficial level, “Captain America: Civil War” succeeds in what it sets out to do. After all, the new sequel is essentially just an excuse to pit two competing camps of superheroes against one another. The battle sequence at the center of it all is one of the grandest spectacles seen yet in a Marvel movie. But that is only one scene in a film that is otherwise overlong and overpopulated with characters. Paul Rudd’s Ant-Man, with a welcome wit that is a relief from so much self-seriousness, remains the high point in a sea of increasingly insipid superheroes.
