Steve Rogers is leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps-one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark's surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability. - Walt Disney Pictures

ROG'S VIEWPOINT: 4 CAMS Camera Camera Camera Camera
With another entertaining blockbuster, the Marvel Cinematic Universe shows no signs of slowing down or weakening. This latest entry is loaded with superheroes, but they each get time of their own during the lengthy epic. It's difficult to single out a performance - making this a fine example of ensemble acting. While this film has much to say about friendship and family in serious and dark moments, there is enough humor to alleviate the tension. Most of the laughs come from Paul Rudd, who rises to new heights as Ant-Man, and Tom Holland, as a talkative and wise-cracking Spider-Man. In a cameo role, Stan Lee delivers a chuckle. Besides setting the stage for a new Spider-Man, there's also the introduction of the Black Panther. Chadwick Boseman's commanding presence makes him a formidable hero to watch out for. In a departure from the standard power-mad villain, Daniel Brϋhl is outstanding as the grief-stricken Zemo. Directors Anthony and Joe Russo fill this adventure with overpowering effects and action. My only gripe is that the battle sequences are shot tight - making it difficult to determine who's doing what to whom. While enjoyable in any visual format, the giant screen 3D draws the audience into the spectacle. Be sure to stay through the closing credits for a scene or two. The super-charged "Captain America: Civil War" is a winner.
