More about Captain America 3 / by Kenneth Buff

Okay, so I'm usually not a big Marvel movie fan. I liked the first few movies, but they just kept going, and as they went the fun of the first films died off with each subsequent sequel (Guardians of The Galaxy being the exception). Now, that being said up front, I still see some of them (actually, I think I've yet to skip one, despite initially planning to skip Civil War, I ultimately saw it because so many people said good things) and I review them just how I would any other movie, based on my experience I had while viewing them. And on top of being bored for the first hour of Captain America: Civil War I was also disturbed. The film siding with Captain America's absurd premise that any government oversight is a bad thing is one issue, but that's not the main thing that disturbed me. So he's a libertarian, okay, I can live with that I suppose, but the film goes on to have Captain America be a hypocrite. He claims to have the best judgment, yet throws police officers off stair cases and kicks in their ribs to help out a friend wanted for murder.

Now, I believe I brought this up in my original review, but after being bombarded with #TeamCap comments on the internet, ranging from people in internet comment sections to personal friends on Facebook, I just felt I had to bring it up again: Captain America is the bad guy in Civil War. Spider-Man said it best when he repeated Stark's opinion of the Captain, "He says you're wrong, but that you think you're right. And that makes you dangerous." How many bad guys believe they're bad? How many of them think the law knows what is right? That's the ground Captain America stands on in this movie, that he knows what's right above anyone else, and that you're either with him or against him.

To further my point, take a look at Iron Man's herorism verses Captain America's
