One of the year's best movies is finally available for home viewing. Captain America: Civil War is now accessible via Blu-Ray and Digital HD.
Quality - 5/5 Stars
In true Marvel fashion, Civil War has been translated beautifully. It looks great like in the theaters and the audio track is well balanced.
bonus Features - 4/5 Stars
The film comes with a plethora of bonus features. The biggest is a feature called United We Stand, Divided We Fall: Making of Civil War. It is a two part feature showing the process of the film's production and it is a great thing to watch if you are at all interested in how they made such a big blockbuster. Also, the release includes a preview of Doctor Strange along with Deleted Scenes and the Road to Civil War feature.
Movie - 5/5 Stars
When I said this was the most ambitious Marvel film to date, there were several reasons for that. Not only did the introduction of several major characters play a role in that statement, but also the storyline. Because of the current limitations of the MCU, the Russo brothers could simply not recreate the comic book version of Civil War. Even if the storylines matched up, it would be impossible to do it all in one film. So, they took the concept and created a different movie. But, the story kept you on the edge of your seat and made you doubt who was right, Cap or Stark throughout the entirety of the film. There were not any major villains, and the one villain that was part of the entire movie ended up being successful. In fact, by the end, there are many questions left unanswered. It sets up the upcoming movies of the MCU such as the Avengers: Infinity War movies. You don't know what will happen to Captain America or the rest of the Avengers. As with any Marvel movie, it ends with a cliffhanger.
overall Rating: 14/15 Stars
