Here’s what the experts think of the latest Marvel movie…

You’ve watch the trailer! You’ve seen the TV ads; the signs on buses and billboards and websites! Captain America: Civil War is about to storm multiplexes from Seattle to Salem and make the folks at Marvel Studios and Disney gobs of cash. But is it worth paying full price to see it this weekend?

Here’s what the critics have to say…


“A comic book extravaganza that’s enhanced by wit and audacity, not to mention the sort of action that only mountains of money can buy.”

-Joe Morgenstern [Wall Street Journal]


“After the first two Captain America entries, the finest comic-book movies of the last five years, this one is disappointing.”

-Kyle Smith [New York Post]


Captain America: Civil War does not in any way transcend the conventions of the genre. On the contrary: It succeeds because it doesn’t really try.”

-A.O. Scott [The New York Times]

“Bragging just a bit – see how many franchise characters we’ve got, DC? – Marvel practically doubles the number of superheroes for this movie. And it’s too much.”

-Stephen Whitty [New York Daily News]


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

-Justin Chang [Variety]


“Sure, it’s too much and way too familiar. But Captain America: Civil War brings the fun, the fierce and the fireworks. Summer, we have liftoff.”

-Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]
