this movie is. not good. but tom hardy spends the entire film acting as though he’s secretly in a comedy which is kind of fantastic? so i am emphatically NOT going to recommend this as a Good Movie but also it’s not AWFUL so idk if you find yourself in a screening after a couple drinks i’d suggest kicking back and enjoying yourself idk idk
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
This was, I have to say, the strongest ensemble piece Marvel’s produced to date. The Avengers had a better script, but was visually inconsistent; 2 Avengers 2 Ultron staggered under the size of its cast and a murky script, but, well, hey, James Spader. Civil War’s a much sleeker product, balancing old and new members of the roster alike. (A few favorites: I thought Chadwick Boseman was perfectly cast; Paul Rudd and Tom Holland steal every scene they’re in.)
