Captain America: Civil War Review (2016)

High on breathtaking action and bro-feels!

Captain America: Civil War subtly disembarks crucial Marvel characters into the MCU grounds without overlooking the originals. There is a morsel for everybody, as they get a shot at each other with some rad action to ice the intriguing melodramatic plot. Nobody gets left out with their screen time, which was a Herculean thing to achieve. Marvel simply aced it.


Bro-feels are hopping around throughout the movie as you see Cap and Iron Man digress from their paths to go against each other, in a gradually developing storyline. You can’t help but feel sorry for both of them as they try to rip each other apart. Like other characters in the movie you end up taking sides yourselves. Iron Man is understandable but Captain America can’t be written off either. Both are on such pedestals of morality that Civil War between them becomes inevitable.


Action is sheer bonkers! So many cool stunning bits that you have to see the movie again to keep your cross-hairs locked. The biggest action driver is no doubt the Winter Soldier again, as Bucky Barnes ravages through every one who tries to either stop or catch him. Watch out for that highway action scene! He single handedly decimates every superhero who comes in his way. Black Panther gets introduced brilliantly to the tale. So does Spidey! Looking forward to watching their solo movies now.


Civil War is high on humour just like any Marvel movie is, with Robert Downey Jr., Tom Holland, Anthony Mackie and Paul Rudd doing us the honors of throwing us off into non-stop guffaws. Brilliantly penned screenplay as usual with great music to cover things up. Editing is exceptional as well.

Captain America: Civil War’s drama lets you dig deeper into the heads of the superheroes, and make them fairly relatable. You can’t help but relate your plight to these characters who get hammered under egotism, friendship, choices and conscience. Despite everything the movie packs in, you have to establish hands down that Iron Man stays the coolest, and Captain America undoubtedly the finest!


The weird thing about Captain America: Civil War is that you divide the movie into sub-sections and you still get awesome mini-movies that hit extraordinary feat per se. Wrap those little plots and there’s the big one that reveals like an eye-opener eventually in the climax.

One downside could be that there is no true villain in the movie. Rather a pointer that directs them into mangling each other to gnaw at the team from inside.


Not going into the spoilers much I would recommend you go get on this awesome bandwagon called Captain America: Civil War at once, and enjoy the thrilling action-packed bromancing ride. Watch it over and over if you wish to relive its classy mind-numbing action.

Mad Max: Fury Road movie wallpaper

Fury Road was everything we could have asked from a George Miller extravaganza. The rad setup, outstanding plot, and sheer insanity hurled us back into time. There was more to the franchise, an unexplored territory of beauty that Miller was successful in re-creating. We loved this newly found laconic avatar of Max. Tom Hardy was a perfect find.

Creed was a big pleasant surprise. The fact that the trailer didn’t say much had us doubting the franchise future. But Coogler uplifted the series once again, with Jordan in his vanguard. Stallone was surprisingly good yet again. With a story that reeked of a touching dramatic proving ground, it was a perfect way to keep the Rocky legacy alive!


sicario movie wallpaper

Sicario is a perfect depiction of the US-Mexican muck. Things are bad there, and Sicario leaps into the waters of chaos to give us the complete picture. A story that unfolds like a blossoming flower, it was an engaging flick that walked on paths of a brilliant political drama.

Ah! The intricacies involved! From our vantage things appear trivial news. But the complexities entailed have been shot by the rad Spielberg camera. Tom Hanks was just perfect as the protagonist who went through hell to save lives. Politics at its best and worst!


the martian movie wallpaper

With Andy Weir’s genius tale doing magic for Ridley, this was a perfect leap into sci-fi intricacies. Matt Damon does a great job as Watney and packs in the right kind of humour to make science even more interesting than it already is. One of the finest literally out of the world flick!


Mission Impossible Rogue nation movie wallpaper

The MI series barely fails to deliver. This stood as one of the finest MI movies to have ever been helmed. With McQuarrie behind the camera to do it the justice it deserved, it had impossible gut-wrenching action, and an intricate plot that kept our adrenaline pumping throughout the flick.

Marvel marveled us yet again with a super-villain that made sure Avengers end up turning into his puppets. With a bad-ass plot, and a brilliant glimpse into the head of pizzazz, Age of Ultron was successful in opening up even better gates of impending sequels.

Spectre movie wallpaper

Mendes brought yet another installment to bid adieu to one of the finest and classiest actors to have ever played Bond. The awesomeness of the movie pervaded throughout as it let Bond on a hunt to find ‘The Boss’ and the author of his pain. Batista inclusion made things even more bad-ass.


Pawn sacrifice movie wallpaper

One of the most underrated movies that probably might have gone unnoticed if you aren’t a chess fan, Pawn Sacrifice was a brilliant exploration into the head of one of the finest players to have ever lived. It was a unique perspective that made for a great viewing experience as it skipped minute aspects of the game for emphasis. Toby was a perfect choice for Bobby!


Still from In the heart of the sea movie wallpaper

Get lost in the rhythm of poetry and bad-ass visuals. A perfect tribute to the brilliant Moby Dick tale. The movie’s screenplay is sheer music to the ears. It brings Philbrick’s brilliant perspective into the front page, and reeks of crime, helplessness, and despair.


The walk movie wallpaper top view

If there’s a biopic out there that is endearing, elegant, comic at the same time riveting, this is it! The walk isn’t just a walk on a rope, it is everything that lets an insane thought unfurl into the horizon of possibilities. Petit’s confidence, verve, gusto, flair and spirit are all worth commendable.

15. THE MAN FROM U. N. C. L. E.

What is downright delightful is to watch how two people who hate each other to their guts end up working as a team. The humour of the movie makes it a brilliant hoot! Even though it tries hard at a point to run into gravity, the comic timing of actors don’t let it become one. A brilliant entertainer!


Albeit there were more movies that we could have added to our top 15 movies of 2015 list, we found the aforementioned ones more prominent. Some dainty movies like Mr. Holmes, Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, The Hunger Games – Mockingjay part 2, The Good Dinosaur, Trainwreck, Crimson Peak, and Black Mass couldn’t make the cut since they weren’t quite there. Even though some of them had great stories in the backdrop to uplift the direction, some of them lacked a proper screenplay that stopped it from getting helmed into perfection.

Whatever the case might it goes without saying you need to watch all movies from our top 15 movies of 2015 list.
