The Joy of Geek Podcast, Film Review:

Captain America: Civil War

On this star-studded episode of the Joy of Geek podcast, we (Rich, Jordan and Kevin) review the highly-anticipated next film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe franchise - Captain America: Civil War. Walking into theatres on opening weekend, our hopes were very high, especially considering the considerable quality of the previous film in the series - Captain America: Winter Soldier - and our desire to see how well Marvel would handle the introductions of both Black Panther and Spider-Man. The film certainly had the potential to be the best in the series so far, but were Kevin Feige, the Russo Brothers and the rest of the MCU crew ultimately able to deliver on our expectations? Tune in to find out. 

As a very small spoiler, I will say that not all of us agreed entirely on the overall strength of the film - but that is what makes these conversations (hopefully) all the more interesting.  When the smoke settled, however, we shook hands once again as friends and colleagues, having put to rest our debates on: (1) The quality of the film's main antagonist, Baron Zemo (2) Whether or not we enjoyed the Cap - Iron Man - Winter Solider dynamic (3) Whether the overall premise holds up under scrutiny, and (4) If this really is a "Captain America" film, or if "Avengers: Civil War" would have been a more fitting title. And ultimately, we give our thoughts on the film as a whole, and our individual predictions on where the MCU might go from here. Oh, and we also manage to discuss a bit of additional film-related news, including some Star Wars Rogue One chat, DCU film news, and more. 

So join us for an epic adventure, where alliances are strained and friendships are put to the ultimate test. Or, at the very least, for a solid discussion on one of the most anticipated movies of the year. This...is the Joy of Geek!
