Það hefur ekki farið framhjá neinum ofurhetju- eða stórmyndaunnendum að Captain America: Civil War lendir í bíó í þessari viku. Heldur ætti það ekki að hafa farið framhjá þeim að fyrstu viðbrögð hafa allsvakalega hallast á jákvæðari hliðina.

Gagnrýnendur spara sumir ekki stóru orðin og megum við að lágmarki gera ráð fyrir hressilegu meðali við hinum ofurhetjuágreiningi ársins, Batman v Superman, og þær vægast sagt umdeildu skoðanir sem henni fylgdu. Civil War er víst komin til þess að sanna það að við eigum enn nokkra spretti eftir áður en áhorfendur verða þreyttir á ofurhetjumyndum. Einhverjir eru strax farnir að segja að hún sé ein ef ekki sú besta í sínum sívaxandi geira.

Dæmi:

The most mature and substantive picture to have yet emerged from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
– Variety

Not only is it another stellar Cap movie, it’s maybe my favorite Tony Stark movie, and it also proves how you put a million heroes in the same movie effectively (4.5/5).
– Nerdist

Call it „civil war“ or call it brand extension; call it a „cinematic universe“ or a corporate behemoth – the latest Marvel extravaganza furthers the studio’s cross-pollination of action franchises in a way that’s sure to satisfy devotees.
– Hollywood Reporter

This is the best Marvel movie so far. This is not hyperbole. I have my doubts they can make anything better.
– Uproxx

It’s a magnificent action film, it’s a wonderful character piece, it’s big, brash, bursting with confidence and brio; it’s Marvel firing on all cylinders just when, by rights, we might be expecting the law of diminishing returns to set in (10/10).
– Starburst

If Captain America: Civil War is the true herald of Marvel’s Phrase Three and its carefully planned future; maybe it doesn’t actually feel so bad that we’ll be getting these movies every year until the Earth collapses in on itself.
– Independent

If there’s a risk of the Marvel ‘formula’ becoming stale, there isn’t any evidence of that here. Civil War isn’t just a damn-near-perfect popcorn crowd-pleaser; it doesn’t offer any easy answers for its combatants, or the world going forward (5/5)
– Total Film

Packed to bursting with the one ingredient ‘Batman v Superman’ lacked: joy.
– Time Out

Bringing together tremendous character dynamics; bold structure; an emotional narrative; and spell-binding, fun action sequences, it’s everything a blockbuster should be (5/5).
– CinemaBlend

This is the cinematic superhero showdown you’ve dreamt of since childhood, precisely because that’s everything – and all – it wants to be. (5/5)
– Daily Telegraph

In the best Comic Book film since The Dark Knight, the Russo Brothers along with Captain America and Iron Man completely knock it out of the park.
– HeyUGuys

Matching its blockbuster scale and spectacle with the smarts of a great, grown-up thriller, Captain America: Civil War is Marvel Studios’ finest film yet (5/5).
– Empire
