Civil War is by far the best marvel film ever made, and i'm sorry to be such a suck up to Marvel, but is also my new favourite. I have to say this review will be completely positive as I loved everything about this film.
First off I want to mention the plot. This is the cleverest Marvel plot to date, it touches on a lot of sensitive subjects and explains the whole civil war story line very very well, it's actually a sequel to Captain America The Winter Solider and also to Avengers Age Of Ultron so it gives you a lot to digest. It is an incredibly well crafted film that really uses it's directorial resources and acting resources. The whole Team Cap and Team Iron Man thing isn't so black and white, it gives you both sides to the story and throughout the entire film I was flipping between sides, deciding which is right and which is wrong. The film isn't actually based on any of the comic book versions, but is actually a mixture of all of them and it works tremendously well. The action scenes were amazing, from the very start to the finish and the airport scene was so so so good; very, very impressive. They are actually some of the best I have seen in any film let alone any Marvel film.
I personally was not at all worried about the amount of characters in this film but I did think you might not get to see enough from each character, but I had nothing to worry about at all. The amount of characters worked so well; I can't even begin to express, you saw loads from each and every one of them which really was a treat. The newest additions to the MCU Spiderman and Black Panther were astonishing. this is the best version of Spiderman ever made, he was cheeky and really acted like the Spiderman we all have ever wanted, his costume also is the best one ever made. His alter ego Peter Parker was just as good a 16 year old school boy balancing between homework and supervillans, who is highly intelligent and not very wealthy. Everything about this new Spiderman is perfect and truly faultless. As well as Black Panther who played quite an important part in the film, was cool and mysterious, with an awesome costume and some impressive fighting moves. He made a big entrance on screen and after seeing it twice, again really made me smile the biggest smile. I am very excited to see them both in their own individual films and in future Avenger films to come, as it has given us all 2 brand new characters to enjoy. I have to make a special mention about one particular character that is Scarlett Witch, Olson was absolutely astonishing in this role, since we didn't really see much of her full capability in Age Of Ultron, I really wanted to see more of her and her power in this; and we defiantly did. I loved how you saw her full range of abilities in this, because of this she was one of the most pleasing parts to the film.
I am so overwhelm by how much this filmed reached my expectation considering how much hype I had for it, it needed to reach some very high expectations. For it's stunning plot, acting and an amazing array of characters that all performed wonderfully, and for being a film series that gets better and better.
I am going to give Captain America Civl War:
The Huntsman Winter's War is directed by Cedric Nicholas-Troyan and stars Chris Hemsworth, Jessica Chastain, Emily Blunt, Charlize Theron, Nick Frost, Rob Brydon and Sheridan Smith; and is a sequel spinoff to 2012's Snow White and The Huntsman where years after the events of the first film the evil queen returns in the form of a mirror in ordered make a miraculous appearance to rule the kingdom but her sister The Ice Queen (Blunt) isn't to sure of this power.
This was a fun, good time, it demonstrated an action packed film. Sadly this film wasn't amazing, I mean the first film wasn't exactly award winning but it had lots of accepts about it that is liked, but this film only had a few. Likewise with Hail Ceasar the plot of this film was very scrambled and didn't make sense it felt jumpy and it contradicted itself. I think it's just me but Hemsworth is a big actor and you know when he is in the film, but I feel he was just there and surprisingly didn't do much for me, he sort of played the same character. I do think (although I personally don't like it) that this film would have not of excited with out Disney's Frozen it sort of fell like a live action version.
Needless to say I thought Chastain was wonderful in this and I promise i'm not just saying that because she is very pretty, lol. But she was very good in this film and unlike Hemsworth, played a very different character to her usual roles and it was nice to see her ace another type of character. Brydon and Frost were both a nice addition, and provided us with most of the film's comedy. But for me the best of this film was Emily Blunt. Blunt was simply stunning and this was in my opinion her best performance to date, she was cold and heartless, driven by sorrow and revenge which made her beautiful as 'The Ice Queen'. Her talent shown in this role really made me sit back and think for a minute.
Whilst the Emily Blunt performes well in this film the plot was dumb, there was absolutley no suspense and I was just completley bored.
I am going to give The Huntsman Winter's War:
Eddie The Eagle is directed by Dexter Fletcher staring Taron Egerton and Hugh Jackman and tells the story of Eddie Edwards the underdog who never gives up and tries and tries so hard to prove him self to the world.
This mostly true adaptation, showed us that Dexter Fletcher whilst better known for his acting roles, is able to present very different styles by offering a kind, feel good, lighthearted film about the almighty struggle of Eddie the Eagle Edwards. In contrast to 2013's Sunshine on Leith and 2011's Wild Bill.
The protagonist Eddie Edwards played by the up and coming Taron Egerton, presented audience members with a very different style of his acting abilities and showed a fearless brave representation of Mr Edwards. The way he portrayed him was truly in genius and fairly inventive, bearing in mind Egerton plays Eggsy a rather chavy international spy, so the contrast is something amazing.
The film offered superb acting talent Hugh Jackman to Christopher Walken and surprised us with an impressive performance from the man behind the camera (Fletcher) and showed us that he can successfully create a nice, heartfelt film that tells the story of a living legend and emotionally touches audience members as it did me.
For it's surprising appearance from Fletcher and great acting from Egerton and Jackman
I am going to give Eddie The Eagle:
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is directed by Zack Snyder and stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Amy Adams and Jesse Eisenberg, and is about Superman who is deemed too dangerous after the destruction caused in Man of Steel and Batman feels he needs to step in.
Batman v Superman: Yawn of Justice as I like to call was a poor attempt at something that would have been so great have it a completely different plot with a completely different approach. First of I am disappointed in Snyder as he is a much better director than this, I mean come on,this is the guy who directed Watchmen and 300 two of the greatest films ever made. I just felt that they really didn't properly bother with the film, it felt lazy and fairly clumsy.
I thought the plot was shocking, it was confusing and really didn't make sense, it opened up a lot of questions but really didn't answer any of them it just felt like a set up and a film with this idea should not be a set up film. I thought Jesse Eisenberg was annoying and pathetic as Lex Luthor, they made Doomsday into an obstacle they had to overcome and it felt like they just creamed him in their and felt unnecessary. I must warn you the one thing that bugged me the most about this film was that it is called Batman v Superman but they only fought for three flipping minutes! Literally three minutes in the entire film it is appalling.
Then there is the good part. One thing I think was effulgent was two of the newest faces to the DC cinematic universe Batman and Wonder Woman. The two of these made the film for me and are the reason I thought the film was only good because they made up for it completely. Batfleck was a dark and nefarious new version for us to have fun with and I thought his alter ego Bruce Wayne was just as interesting and look forward to see him make an apperance in this summer's Suicide Squad. As well as Gal Gadot who was flawless and executed the most impressive first appearance ever made, she was sexy and mysterious as Diana Prince and then as Wonder Woman was pernicious and well wonderful. It's just a shame she was barley in the film. These two characters alone where the highest parts of the film, although you did see an awesome new look at the bat cave and Batmobile which was pretty cool as well.
But for a long almost 3 hour film it didn't do much for me and I found myself bored, one of the most disappointing films I have seen in a while.
I am going to give Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice:
Zootropolis is directed by Byron Howard and Rich Moore, and stars Jason Bateman as a sly fox and Jennifer Goodwin as a bubbly bunny, as well as an array of different animals. The film is about a want to be bunny cop named Judy Hobbs who teams up with cynical con artist, fox Nick Wilde, who work together to uncover a conspiracy.
Disney's latest movie was a hit! This was a really lovely film that had some of the best animation that's been in a disney film to date, the way the characters and the scenery was crafted was absolutely in genius. The film's two protagonist Judy Hobbs (Goodwin) and Nick Wilde (Bateman) where flawless, the chemistry between these two characters was amazing and really did but huge smile on my face. The two of them both balanced each other out, Judy with her confident, can do attitude and Nick with his cool cucumber vibe worked so wonderfully and it was great to see such good interaction with characters.
The plot in theory is a simple disney film plot like most of the time, but this was a tad different. The plot was incredible it raised some very mature, clever themes and showed us that Disney can make a a better plot in a 100 minute animation then in a multi million dollar superhero film *cough *cough Avengers Age of Ultron. I couldn't actually comprehend how good the plot was in this film it was highly impressive, hats of to you disney. It also included music stylings of Shakira which made me very happy to hear and to see.
It had charm and wit, with some cheeky characters and an plot that should be highly credited.
Definitely one of the better disney films out there
I am going to give Zootropolis:
