Movie review: Captain America: Civil War

I loved parts of Captain America: Civil War; I liked the rest, and there wasn’t anything to dislike.

First, the airport fight was great. It was everything you could hope for, and most importantly there were some big surprises that weren’t spoiled in the trailers.

The plot was good and easy to follow, but I don’t want to say anything more about that, for risk of spoiling exactly what goes down. It’s all very enjoyable, with a few decent laughs.

I think this might be the best acted of the Marvel movies. Robert Downey Jr. had a lot more to work with in this movie than the others. We usually only see him as snarky or melancholy. In this film, we get to see glimpses of his angry side — and he’s really good at it.

This is a Captain America-centered movie, but just barely. In many respects, the character arc of Iron Man shines brighter than anything else. And it feels like an *Avengers* film throughout.

Grade: A-
