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.

Avengers: Age of Ultron Review (2015)

Avengers: Age of Ultron is yet another good Marvel movie where adrenaline is on dope. Started out with the first one, on a high amped note and it simply pervades throughout. Avengers: Age of Ultron literally breathes on Kabooms and Kapows. The action is sheer beauty! So exquisite you have to go back in time to watch minute movements, or….or go watch it again (no need to thank) to relive the eternal divine thrashing.

Catchphrases are snappy and witty just the way Marvel likes it. Editing is superb considering the incessant violent upbeat theme of the movie. Drama bits are framed quite great. Nat and Bruce’s chemistry brilliantly shot!

Ultron is downright ravishing. Spader’s voice gives the character a brilliant gravity. He sways in pizzazz with a unique confidence that he bears throughout the flick. There are destructive fight sequences in the movie that would make you jump off your seat. There is music in the rubbles and that is such a big turn on!


Sceptre has seen places. Long lost from Loki’s palms, we had seen it being captured by S.H.I.E.L.D in the prequel. The movie begins with Avengers fighting to take back the mysterious weapon from the hands of Hydra. As the frames begin, we are subjected to orgasmic takedowns and swift kills as the assembled combatants show a visually breathtaking pleasing sight of non-stop action. It is then when characters like Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver come into picture. Stark’s horrifying perception of the world with Avengers’ dead bodies piled up in failure, as shown to him by Wanda forces his change of heart, and he proceeds with his Ultron plan that goes kaput. In comes the badass villain as a party pooper with a tasteful yet melting voice that reeks of perversion. The adventure begins thereon and we feast our eyes to a mind numbing plot that Ultron bringeth.

Andy Serkis gives a phenomenal cameo as Klaw. His introduction to the storyline was subtle with clawed imprints on his neck (wink intended). When are we having a Black Panther movie?

The Introduction of Vision to the Marvel tale is entrancing too. The way he catches hold of himself to see his reflection and contemplates about beauty is marvelously captured. Bettany imparts Vision a profound charm and makes you love the character almost instantly.

One of the most top-notch badass scenes from the movie is when Hulk goes rogue, and Iron Man has to call Veronica to shut him down. The action sequence that follows is an eye-popping visual feast. Two of the most daring action blows are delivered by Cap and Iron Man when they get their shots on Ultron at two different places. Both make the most of it! It is a delight to watch Cap, a mere mortal, without a suit, go head on with the big badass Ultron. Cap and Thor’s teaming up, the Vibranium wonder and Mjolnir’s punch, hands down out of the world. We see a lot of Hawkeye this time. The underrated hero breathes the screen with a thoughtful charisma and hatches a surprise for everybody.

With Marvel’s roots deep in comics, we are aware that the dark bits aren’t supposed to be bluntly manifested. Gore is never properly shown. Nobody in the background of the tale actually dies. With that spirit in mind, Marvel continues to open its doors for all. To show every crucial character in a limited time is a daunting task. That is what happens here as we witness a stuffed up window with every superheroes’ face on it. Forget these downsides and the movie is nothing but a constant rhythm of adrenaline war.

You can’t miss it for the world. Go today!
