Captain America: Civil War (2016)

This movie had a lot of great action, but it suffered in regards to its story. Explicitly, there were gaps in the story that could have been filled in.

Captain America (Chris Evans) and Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.)

On a related note, Ant-Man got some good action moments, but he felt more out of place compared to Spider-Man.

In the end, I would still recommend this movie as an action movie. I would also add that I wish I had the opportunity to watch Captain America: Winter Soldier (2014) beforehand.

Today I was at the hospital and saw a part of this film while waiting in the lobby. I watched from the scene where War Machine gets shot down to the scene where Tony Stark has chased Bucky Barnes, they're now falling down, and Steve Rogers jumps on for a "group hug."

Nice use of his shield. Cooler than previous movies.

Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) and T'Challa (Chadwick Boseman)

Wait, is that Punisher?
What? What happened to Pepper? [Answered shortly]
It is unfair. Given at one point they saved the world.
"Who's putting coffee grounds in a disposal?"
She looks slightly different, but I recognized Sharon Carter (Emily VanCamp) as being the leading actress in Everwood.

Spider-Man uses his web to snag Captain America's shield

Black Panther?
Hmm. I didn't watch Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
Sam Wilson: So you like cats?
Steve Rogers: Sam...
Sam Wilson: What? Dude shows up dressed like a cat and you don't wanna know more?

Spider-Man (Tom Holland)

Martin Freeman!
Ha. "I know a guy."
Hahaha. "Spider-Boy"
"Not even your unusually attractive aunt?"
This young Peter Parker is a nice angle.
"I'm gonna sit here so you move away."

Falcon, Ant-Man (Paul Rudd), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), Captain America, Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), and Winter Soldier.

Lol, they smile after his kiss.
"Hey Buddy I think you lost this!"
Haha. 1 vs. 2. I'd say Spider-Man steals the show here.
Lol. Thought it was a water truck.
"They're not stopping."
What was Ant-Man's motivation for joining? I think that was a little weak.

Iron Man and War Machine (Don Cheadle)

Haha. References the Hoth scene in Star Wars.
Holy shit.
"Sorry." [Tony gives him a blast.]
Tony uses the term "manchurian candidate" to refer to Bucky being someone who has been brainwashed to execute orders upon receiving a sequence of code words.
"The living aren't done with you yet."

Falcon (Anthony Mackie)

Haha. Stan Lee. "Are you, Tony Stank?"
