Captain America vs Ironman

Captain America vs Ironman

There is not much to say about this phenomenal movie. I think this movie is probably the best super hero movie to date. The story was well made and the action scene was awesome. Tom Holland played the young high school web slinger Spider-man which I thought he did a very good job at, as well as Chadwick Boseman who played The Black Panther in my opinion did a spectacular job.

This story all started when the winter soldier who was brainwashed is to intercept and steal a case of the super-soldier serum. Now as we fast forward to the present day, Captain America, Falcon, Scarlet Witch and the Black Widow got called to a mission to stop Brock Rumlow a.k.a. Crossbones from stealing a biological weapon. As Cap and the rest of the other Avengers try to stop Crossbones he tries to blows himself up and kill Captain America, Wanda (Scarlet Witch) tries to redirect the blast into the sky and accidently destroys a building, which ends up killing some Wakandan workers.

Back in the United States U.S. Secretary of State informs the Avengers that the United Nations will be putting a United Nations panel together to oversee and control the Avengers. Members of the Avengers do not agree with each other which separates them in two teams, Tony Stark(Ironman) and Steve Rodgers(Captain America). Tony agrees with the government due to the destruction of Sokovia from the menace Ultron which Tony feels responsible for. As for Captain America, he feels that his judgment and decision making is more efficient than what the government will ever come up with.

Later at a conference in Vienna a bomb goes off killing the King of Wakanda, T’Chaka. After looking at the security footage, T’Challa(Black Panther) decides to go after his father’s murderer, The Winter Soldier and kill him. In the attempt to protect Barnes (Winter Soldier) Captain America from Black Panther and the Authorities things did not go to well and Cap., Falcon and Barnes along with Black Panther was all arrested.

After attaining a book that contains specific words to activate Barnes’ brainwashing program, Helmut Zemo recites the words to make Barnes come under his control, then sends him off as a diversion cover his own escape. Captain America ends up stopping Barnes. As Barnes regains his memory, he explains that Zemo was behind the Vienna bombing and wanted to know where Siberia the Hydra base was located so he can find the other brainwashed “Winter Soldiers”.

Captain America and Falcon ends up recruiting Wanda Maximoff(Scarlet Witch), Clint Barton(Hawkeye), and Scott Lang(Ant-Man). Ironman gathers a team together which consists of Natasha Romanoff(Black Widow), T’Challa(Black Panther), Vision, James Rhodes(War Machine), and Peter Parker(Spider-man). As the two teams come face to face at Leipzig/Halle Airport, where a big fight breaks out between the two teams where Captain America and Barnes escape thanks to Black Widow. The fight ends up with Falcon, Ant-man and Hawkeye getting arrested and captured while Black Widow escapes.

As it comes to light that Barnes’ was framed by Helmut Zemo, Tony Stark goes to the Siberian Hydra facility where he tracked down Cap. and Barnes. When Ironman arrives he finds out that Zemo killed off the other “Winter Soldiers” and shows Tony some footage of the death of his parents which was committed by Barnes who at that time was brainwashed. Tony Stark ends up turning on Cap. and Barnes and ripping off Barnes’ robotic arm. After the dust clears Cap. and Barnes get away as Caps’ Shield is left behind. I thought this fight scene was spectacular, the way Cap. and Barnes worked as a team it just seemed that they were synced with each other. It also shows that Ironman can hold his own against two Super Soldiers.

There is so much of this movie I have probably not touched on, but I highly recommend this movie to all. It is a good movie for all ages. A lot of action as well as some comedy. The only disappointment I had with the movie is that they did not have Thor and the Hulk in it. Maybe next time. I hope you enjoy the post.
