Although the film has been successfully communicated in Japanese and Korean, there are those who claim that it was poorly translated from English into these languages. Despite this, it is one Marvel movie that leaves no one indifferent. Six years after the release of the movie in which Steve Rogers and Tony Stark turned against each other, fans are reconsidering their viewpoints and opinions.
With “too many strong aspects to ignore,” at least one Redditor thinks Civil War is the greatest Marvel film of all time. Baron Zemo, a “great antagonist,” “interesting points of conflict” with the Sokovia Accords, and a clash between Tony and Bucky are just a few examples.
The comments were surprisingly cordial, with most MCU fans acknowledging some truth to the statement. One person appreciated the airport battle sequence because it “introduces Spider-Man, Ant-Man, and Black Panther into the group.” Spidey battles Bucky and Sam simultaneously, displaying his mastery of dialogue. The same can be said for Cap.
“Civil War,” according to one Redditor, is “more raw and personal.” They praise the conclusion of the fight between former friends Anthony and Steve, claiming that it shows “the fundamental personalities of both [men], what makes each of them tick and why you don’t want to be on the bad side of either of them.”
Of course, Civil War has never been loved by everyone, with many diehards feeling it wasn’t even a Captain America film and that the character was robbed of his own trilogy. “I didn’t care for it,” opined one fan. “It didn’t interest me at all,” said another.
Others, in contrast, think that the Civil War is not even the greatest MCU film. “Winter Soldier>First Avenger>Civil War” is one user’s ranking. Another user responded, “I understand your viewpoint. But you’re definitely part of the minority. It isn’t even close to being the finest Captain America movie.” Another user challenged.
Given how saturated the market is now, it’s doubtful if Captain America: Civil War would have made much of a splash if it had been released today, but there’s no denying that, in 2016, it was one of the finest cinematic occurrences of the year.
