'Captain America: Civil War' Sets A New Benchmark For Superhero Movies

Civil War comes across as one of those rare superhero movies that rely a great deal on the plot. The film is not merely a marked improvement on Age of Ultron, both in terms of story and action, but it actually proves to be a new benchmark as far as the genre is concerned. Like all good superhero movies, it is the characters that ultimately shine here: be it Black Widow, Winter Soldier, Ant-Man, Hawkeye, Black Panther or Falcon.
