“Captain America: Civil War” premiered on May 6 to audiences cloaked in Marvel gear and eager to immerse themselves in the Marvel Universe.

The film is pretty much an Avengers movie, despite its name, except Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) were not invited to the party. In addition to the cast of “Avengers: Age of Ultron” a new Spider-Man (Tom Holland) and Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) join the troupe of superheros.

The movie itself was epic. Despite being in a theater filled with people of every age, I could hear a pin drop. Of course, people were too engrossed in the movie to drop any belongings.

The movie has already grossed over $10 billion worldwide, according to BGR.com. Despite the obvious interest for the movie, it did have some flaws.

“I really enjoyed all the special effects in the movie, and I loved seeing my favorite characters brought to life, but I wished the script followed the comic books more closely,” junior Jacob Henderson said.

If the plot lacked in quality, the movie certainly remedied the situation with astounding special effects and a spectacular cast. While the plot was based on comic books, I imagine it is no small feat to translate a comic book into a feature length film with two dozen celebrities.

I enjoyed watching “Captain America: Civil War” and recommend it to anyone who does not get dizzy from watching battle sequences. However, I would not go so far as to say it deserves a spot at Cannes. The purpose of a superhero movie is not to win its leads an Oscar but simply to entertain audiences, and “Captain America: Civil War” accomplishes just that.
