Review: Ok, I will admit it, I went in to the movie with my choice made, and there would be no shaking it, or so I thought. This film will give you all the action-packed scenes you come to expect of Marvel, and then some. Not to mention the characters are stellar, it’s like having all of your favorite movies rolled into one, but with the pesky little thing of having to choose sides. Like I said, you may think you are #TeamCap or #TeamIronMan but put all of that to the side before you see the movie. In other words, go in with a very open mind.
The fight scenes are amazing! You wouldn’t expect any less and there are quite a few to feast your eyes upon, and again, they do not disappoint. I don’t want to give away anything, just that the movie was enjoyable and very satisfying, especially to the eye. Oh, and let’s not forget the arrival of the Black Panther and Spiderman, so epic!
