    At the root of that is Civil War’s greatest strength – and the reason it makes all thought of the recent Batman v Superman debacle evaporate on contact. The Russos’ film has an unshakeable faith in these decades-old characters: they’re not wrangled into standing for anything other than who they are, with no gloss or reinterpretation or reach for epic significance required. This is the cinematic superhero showdown you’ve dreamt of since childhood, precisely because that’s everything – and all – it wants to be.

    What makes Captain America: Civil War such a terrific accomplishment is the way it takes what could have been the most crass and overcrowded story to adapt as a film and instead transforms it into an examination of just who these heroes are and what impact they’ve had on the world around them, and vice versa.

    If there’s a risk of the Marvel ‘formula’ becoming stale, there isn’t any evidence of that here. Civil War isn’t just a damn-near-perfect popcorn crowd-pleaser; it doesn’t offer any easy answers for its combatants, or the world going forward. Team Cap or Team Iron Man? The real winner here is Team Marvel.

  • Dan Jolin

    Matching its blockbuster scale and spectacle with the smarts of a great, grown-up thriller, Captain America: Civil War is Marvel Studios’ finest film yet.

    Empire Full Review
  • Chris Nashawaty

    Despite its stars-and-stripes title, Marvel’s latest billion-dollar-blockbuster-to-be, Captain America: Civil War, is essentially a third Avengers movie – it’s also the best one yet.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Russ Fischer

    Striking and consistently engaging, the Russos deftly craft compelling blockbuster entertainment out of a a moral and emotional conflict, and that’s more impressive than any overblown display of loud and vulgar power.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Dave White

    “Civil War” strikes that admirable balance: serious-minded action that never forgets to indulge in serious fun.

    TheWrap Full Review
  • Brian Truitt

    While it’s not the greatest Marvel effort — that honor goes to the previous Captain America: The Winter Soldier — Civil War does pull outstanding performances from its two franchise faces, Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr.

    It’s a huge aspartame rush of a film: a giant irresistible snack, not nutritious, but very tasty.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Tom Huddleston

    A nagging sense of incompleteness means that Civil War isn’t quite as satisfying as the first ‘Avengers’ (it’s all building up to the ‘Infinity War’ two-parter in 2018). But overall, this is Marvel at their best: a pacey, intelligent super-sized blockbuster and a roaringly fun night out.

    Time Out London Full Review
  • Justin Chang

    This chronicle of an epic clash between two equally noble factions, led by Captain America and Iron Man, proves as remarkable for its dramatic coherence and thematic unity as for its dizzyingly inventive action sequences.

    Variety Full Review
  • Tim Grierson

    Civil War is an exciting, often giddy pop pleasure.

    Screen International Full Review
  • Mike Sampson

    While slightly overlong, this movie is bright, creative, insightful, affecting and, above all else, fun.

    ScreenCrush Full Review
  • Sheri Linden

    Posing serious questions about violence and vigilantism while reveling in both, Captain America: Civil War is overlong but surprisingly light on its feet. It builds upon the plotlines of previous Avengers outings, bringing together known marquee quantities and introducing the Black Panther and a new Spidey in winning fashion.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    The best way to think of Captain America: Civil War is as a toy box in which the sheer quantity of toys partly makes up for the lack of anything new. But the big takeaway is worrisome. Marvel has created a universe teeming with superheroes who simply don’t have enough to do. They’re all suited up with nowhere to go.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Bilge Ebiri

    I never found myself genuinely wondering what was going to happen next; the moves are too familiar. Even the big fight, entertaining as it is, feels like it's there not because of dramatic inevitability, but because somebody behind a desk decided it had to be. It's just a bunch of stuff.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Joe Walsh

    There's a certain bloatedness to much of the first half, while the film in general lacks the balance of humour to hard-hitting found in Shane Black's superb Iron Man 3 and/or Whedon's two Avengers outings.

    CineVue Full Review
  • David Ehrlich

    The bigger these movies become, the smaller they feel. The more aggressively they reach for greatness, the more clearly they prove that its beyond their grasp. Marvel movies don't get much better than this. The trouble is, they don't want to.

    indieWIRE Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    More than any previous Marvel adaptation, Civil War conveys the comics' light touch amid somber circumstances. In a bold stroke, those circumstances are of the heroes' own making.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Jamelle Bouie

    The conflict between Iron Man and Captain America drives a wedge through this community of heroes. And they fight, in one of the most joyous cinematic superhero battles ever filmed, the closest thing we’ve seen to an on-screen splash page.

    Slate Full Review
  • Calvin Wilson

    At the end of the day, it’s still a comic-book movie, but one that actually raises serious questions about security, accountability and revenge.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    Captain America: Civil War appeals to me more strongly than any superhero movie of the last decade.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Barry Hertz

    In nearly every way Civil War represents the dizzying heights of the genre.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Kudos to the Russo brothers, Joe and Anthony, for directing the hostilities for maximum impact and without neglecting character. Their thundering epic is also smart, snappy, politically savvy and blessedly fast on its feet.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    After the nihilistic deconstruction of Deadpool and the flattening self-importance of Batman v. Superman, Captain America: Civil War reminds you how funny and exciting these pictures can be when they’re done right — you know, like comic books. The summer movie season has barely begun, and already the remedy for superhero film fatigue has arrived.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    Captain America: Civil War is a classic example of what the big-ticket summer movie experience is all about.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Tasha Robinson

    In terms of narrative ambition, and giving meaningful screen time to an ever-growing stable of onscreen characters, Civil War rivals Joss Whedon's MCU standout The Avengers. And in terms of sheer thrill, it surpasses Avengers — at least for fans who come prestocked with an emotional investment in these characters.

    The Verge Full Review
  • A.A. Dowd

    That Civil War doesn’t collapse under the weight of its various moving parts, that it manages to be the most serious entry yet in this franchise of franchises without sacrificing much in the way of valuable comic relief, is a testament to the creative mojo of directors Joe and Anthony Russo and screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Dominick Suzanne-Mayer

    By firmly rooting all of the film’s sprawling drama in a singular conflict, directors Joe and Anthony Russo manage to do what many superhero films have struggled with in recent years: find a truly effective reason to pit superpower against superpower.

    Consequence of Sound Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    Marvel’s new “Captain America” is anything but bleak — what’s so audacious about the film, and so pleasing, is its quicksilver mix of hardcore action and bright comedy.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    Fun, happily, is one of the many ingredients in copious supply here.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    It’s that rare superhero movie that doesn’t grind you down with nonstop action or, worse yet, the usual tiresome cavalcade of smart-ass wisecracks.

    Time Full Review
  • Kimberley Jones

    Civil War’s main battle sequence is so effective because it’s six-on-six, and we’ve spent the past decade getting to know the combatants.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Soren Andersen

    Who emerges as the winner of this “Civil War”? The audience. The picture delivers in a big, big way.

    The Seattle Times Full Review
  • Matt Zoller Seitz

    The bad news is, there are about ten movies going on in Captain America: Civil War, which is at least seven too many. The good news is, most of them are fun, and there are enough rousing moments to elevate the movie to Marvel's top tier. Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    Those who attend this movie expecting to see a superhero smack-down won’t be disappointed, but anyone partial to Captain America’s saga may feel shortchanged.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    With every new installment of the comic book franchise, the scale gets bigger, relationships get trickier, new forces enter the fray.

    They’ve built up a vast ensemble of character types, all of them played by better-than-average actors, and that they can mix and match the drama, comedy, or action as they see fit.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    Crisply photographed, thoughtfully acted and often refreshingly amusing, “Civil War” injects doses of much-needed fun into a genre of filmmaking that’s become mired in dour pretentiousness, when it’s not ridiculing its own excesses in such meta-snark exercises as “Deadpool.”

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Brian Roan

    Thanks to strong performances, deft writing, and clear, snappy direction and editing, this newest volume of the Marvel Cinematic Universe manages to be at once a thoroughly entertaining standalone story while also serving and benefiting from stories that came before.

    The Film Stage Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    Nothing in “Civil War” takes your breath away. All the exteriors are shrouded in the same overcast, indistinct light. Little in story terms is what you’d call daisy fresh. But almost everything in it works on its own prescribed terms, and the quiet moments register.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    This very crowded, reasonably enjoyable installment in the Avengers cycle...reveals, even more than its predecessors, an essential truth about the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It’s not so much a grand science-fiction saga, or even a series of action-adventure movies, as a very expensive, perpetually renewed workplace sitcom.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Kenneth Turan

    If you live and breathe Marvel, this is one of the MCU's stronger offerings. If you are a spy coming in from the cold, the answer is not so clear.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    The action, directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, is thuddingly effective without being terribly imaginative, but at least it’s not in the clobber-the-audience “Transformers” category.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Jake Cole

    The undeniable fun of Civil War's action scenes only exacerbates the failure of the narrative to adequately contend with its own themes.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Andrew O'Hehir

    I personally find the Russo brothers’ lightning-fast action scenes difficult to process — it’s as if cinema editing now exceeds the speed of human brain functions — but they’re undoubtedly exciting and skillfully constructed. Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    Those who sit through its talky, belabored first half will be rewarded first and foremost with the finest fight scene of any "Avengers" film to date, one that doubles as a satisfyingly popcorny start to the summer season.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Anthony Lane

    As the feigning wears off, and Captain America: Civil War crawls to a close, you sense that the possibilities of nature have been not just exceeded but exhausted. Even the dialogue seems like a special effect: “You’re being uncharacteristically non-hyperverbal,” Black Widow remarks to Iron Man. Translation: “Say something.”

    The New Yorker Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    After the first two “Captain America” entries, the finest comic-book movies of the last five years, this one is disappointing. The story doesn’t make sense.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    Robert Downey Jr. gets to remind everybody that before this blockbuster turn he was actually a serious actor and may still be again. Stark’s frustration at the rigidity and short-sightedness of his confreres and his anguish at where it all leads are vivid and felt.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    There’s a “for fans only” feel to the latest “Avengers” movie, Captain America: Civil War, that won’t be to every taste. A talky, often ponderous exercise in comic book movie elephantiasis, it overdoses on characters, old and new, sometimes not even bothering to name them.

    Movie Nation Full Review
  • Stephen Whitty

    Sometimes, more is less. Although it’s called Captain America: Civil War, the latest Marvel movie is actually a supersized “Avengers” picture -- overstuffed to bursting.
