Civil War

Written last Wednesday. The internet went down. Posting only today.

Civil War opened today. My daughter Tish and I sat on the first screening.

Oh well, the Captain America series, if I recall right the trilogies of the Avengers, is perhaps the most incredible. The third installment that I had the most exciting and fun time watching was a real treat.

Civil War is an all super heroes cast, except for my two other favorites, Thor and Hulk. The rest of my favorites include Iron Man, his friend War Machine (does he go by another name?) Hawk-eye, Black Widow, Falcon, Ant Man. Surprise, surprise, Spider Boy did spin his web. And new characters such as the Black Panther, Scarlet Witch, and Vision, make up the other warriors.

Kudos to the script writers for getting a fantastic choreography of the super powers, all in search of Bucky, the Winter Soldier, for reasons personal and tragic.

If you can’t remember the Winter Soldier, he is Steve Rogers’ best friend.

I want to put my excitement here, but my daughter said that would be tantamount to you wanting to terminate me, So I will wait till you get to see the movie.

Hmmmm. Now I know what happened to Howard. Sorry. I can’t restrain myself.

Captain America and the Winter Soldier

Of all the Marvel Comic stories transposed into the silver screen, Captain America with the Winter Soldier defines what patriotism, or love of country is all about. No, it is not just valor or courage under fire, when heroes are tested, that spell what it is to be a soldier, it is, primarily, in knowing and doing what is right.

Captain Steve Rogers is in search of a purpose for his redefined status, a super soldier turned ordinary citizen, 95 years old and looking as hunky as ever. Inadvertently, he finds himself again in defense of threatened world, by a hydra as monstrous as evil itself.

The movie brings back the old fashioned friendship that bonds people for life, and affirms that with support from trusted pals, old or new, there will always be hope that this world will not perish in ugliness. There will always be heroes who will rise and save the world.

I love this movie very much. There is much more to say about the script, the graphics, the special effects, subtle imagery and all, but I’d leave you enjoy the film.

If only I have a moment with Chris Evans….

Oh shucks, Robert Redford was my original profile actor, character and all, of course. Happy to see him essay an antagonist’s role.

But it is Chris Evans time. 🙂
