Not the best Marvel film in the collection…not even the best Marvel so far in 2016 (see: “Deadpool“).

After a slow, much too drawn out and politicized adult plot unfolds, this Avenger reunion finally picks up speed, spider webs and humor in the final hour.  “Captain America: Civil War” is worth checking out, but be prepared for a meeker, less charismatic and fun Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr).  Shiny new Marvel toys, along with a couple of more recent hero rollouts, steal this movie.  Action scenes (particularly the airport scene above) pump much-needed life into this comic chapter.

Be sure to stay a full 10 minutes after to enjoy two story-related continuation scenes during the credits.

Full movie review to come.
