“Holly on Hollywood”

Captain America: Civil War
Captain America: Civil War centers around the political and social pressure, to make the Avengers team accountable for their collateral damage that costs innocent lives. Captain America (Chris Evans) believes that super heroes need to defend humanity without the government preventing them from doing their job. Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) agrees with the UN council and takes a stand that causes division among the Marvel gang (Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Don Cheadle, Paul Bettany and Elizabeth Olsen), forcing the team to choose sides. When a terrorist act is blamed on Cap’s friend Bucky (Sebastian Stan), a battle ensues with help from Ant-Man (Paul Rudd), Spiderman (Tom Hollhand) and newcomer Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman).
This PG-13 action, adventure, superior hero-vs.- hero extravaganza, is a Marvel epic unlike any other! It has incredible…
visual effects, superb martial-arts fight scenes, cool gadgets, vibrant cinematography, exhausting fast-paced action, a surprising big “reveal” from the bad guy, super heroes showing off super powers and hilarious, witty dialogue, with a smart storyline that will make you laugh, cheer and think about which side you would take (yes, I know which team I’m on!) There are too many great scenes to discuss but I loved the airport battle with Ant-man!
I have to admit, I had a hard time seeing our heroes fight each other and undermine their biggest strength – a unified force against evil. I vote to leave political correct politics out of fantasy hero movies and let the good guys carry on with ridding the world of bad guys. But Captain America: Civil War, the third chapter in the franchise, is by far the best and most inspiring one yet!
