Review: Captain America: Civil War

Directed by: Joe & Anthony Russo.

Starring: Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr, Sebastian Stan, Scarlett Johansson, Anthony Mackie, Don Cheadle, Jeremy Renner, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Rudd, Tom Holland.

Rating: Running Time: 147 mins.

After the events of the previous Marvel Studio movies (in particular Avengers: Age Of Ultron and the destruction of the city of Sokovia) the world has become very aware of those enhanced with super abilities and wary of the collateral damage left in the wake of such events. After a mission ends in disaster and the deaths of innocent bystanders, the United Nations agrees that independent heroes, or rather “vigilantes” should be held accountable for their actions and be forced to sign up to the Sokovian accords, a sort of registration for enhanced individuals who would then be under the command of the United Nations.

Review: Fantastic Four

Fantastic Four 2015Directed by: Josh Trank.

Starring: Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B Jordan, Jamie Bell, Toby Kebbell, Reg E Cathey & Tim Blake Nelson.

Rating:Running Time: 100 mins.

The Fantastic Four, one of Marvel’s better known comic series, has had a rocky history when it comes to cinematic adaptations. The movie rights were purchased from Marvel in the 80s, and a movie was made to retain the rights which was never intended to be released to the public. Then 20th Century Fox bought the rights and made the first Fantastic Four movie to be released in 2005, closely followed by sequel Fantastic Four: Rise Of The Silver Surfer two years later, both of which were directed by Tim Story and were successful box-office performers, but were panned by critics and fans alike. Now, Fox has rebooted the franchise under the direction of Chronicle director Josh Trank. Read the rest of this entry

Review: Captain America – The Winter Soldier

Directed by: Anthony Russo, Joe Russo.

Starring: Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Samuel L. Jackson, Robert Redford, Anthony Mackie, Cobie Smulders, Emily VanCamp.

Rating:   Running Time: 136 mins.

As a fan of the Marvel movies I was profoundly disappointed six months ago by Thor: The Dark World which suffered from lacklustre writing that dumbed down story and character in favour of action. I didn’t hate the movie, but it was my least favourite of all the Marvel movies made to date. I wondered if Marvel’s cinematic success may have ended and the series may have run its course, but if anything Captain America: The Winter Soldier has both restored my faith in the series and set the bar high for its future. I hate for things to be spoiled, so believe me when I say this will be spoiler free, and will only discuss in detail the opening 25 or so minutes.
