In May, we all went to see Captain America: Civil War. the third Marvel film about Captain America played by Chris Evans. Loosely based on the Marvel Comics’ Civil War Superhero Registration Act storyline about ten years ago, it’s a film pitting two teams of heroes against each other, over the concept whether folks with superpowers should be registered. If you’re registered, are you on the payroll of the government? If so, does the government call the shots on what you can or can’t do? When you can or can’t intervene in an unjust situation? Amidst all this, Helmut Zemo (originally Baron Zemo, the Marvel supervillain) is manipulating everyone towards his own goals and convoluted grand scheme.
By the time we arrived, the movie theater was packed, so we were relegated to seats near the front. Yes, those seats so close, you are uncomfortable. We weren’t ridiculously close, but meh. It was close enough, combined with what seemed like juttery action scenes, to make the film hard to watch. The story wasn’t bad, but Zemo’s grand scheme seemed very convoluted (as I mentioned earlier), and I don’t know, we didn’t really enjoy the film all that much.
