New from A Reel of One’s Own by Andrea Thompson: Is “Captain America: Civil War” More Political Thriller or Comic Book?

By Andrea Thompson

Don’t blame yourself if you get the title wrong for Captain America: Civil War… or maybe it’s just me who sometimes mistakenly believes the real title is Avengers: Civil War. It’s difficult to chastise myself too much, since the movie is far more than the titular character’s story; it’s about a team that slowly breaks apart over the course of the movie, despite the bonds they’ve formed. Certainly the timing was uncanny, as 2016 was a good year for a story about a makeshift family coming apart over politics.
