Captain America: Civil War (PG) *****

    Divided loyalties and friendships are put to the test in Captain America: Civil War. Sure fire fun indeed, prepare to be blown away in  This winner take all approach to high living from the brain trusts at Marvel Studios. Even if your not into super heroes this Disney extravaganza will surely turn you on and Cineplex Odeon theatrical halls still left standing around beautiful B.C.

    Forget about the ill time bad time you may have had watching Batman v Superman. Clearly DC comics should take a page out of Marvel and not be so damn bleak. Humour gets the last laugh as a surprise costumed hero winds up  In the middle of a shooting match pitting two factions of the old Avengers going at it.

    And forget about political correctness. Doing the right thing sees a certain world body try to reign in the Avengers after a few assignments sees the loss of innocent life. Boo hoo. Team leader Iron Man wants to tow the line and placate the government’s wanting to vet future assignments of these global crime fighters while good old Captain America wants no part of being shackled.  Both Robert Downey Jr., ( Back to School – yes he was in this Rodney Dangerfield laugher when he was just starting out) and Chris Evan (Cellular) are terrific as two once upon a time friends ready to wage war.

    Complete with their fellow Avengers evenly split in both camps Captain America: Civil War is a super hero dream movie.  A great story with a unique villain or two,  Standout special effects, raging egos and some very witty humour make Captain America: Civil War a grand time at the movies and very well worth seeing.
