I promised my friend my reaction, so here it is.

Captain America: Civil War is a well-designed standalone movie that ties up loose ends nicely. A little too nicely. As if it were a well wrapped present that you open up to find a spoon in it and then you put it in a drawer with your other spoons and then forget about it. Something completely utilitarian, even though it's finely made.

Basically Captain America: Civil War is a wall in Marvel's house. Even though it's a well-built wall, and holds up the structure well, it's still a wall.

Spoilers will explain exactly why.

We fed ourselves eye candy instead of dinner on a Friday night )

Watch the movie just to marvel at how well it's crafted, then put it away and forget about it. If there's a good adaption of Civil War, this is it, but don't expect to leave wanting more.
