One year after the events of Avengers: Age of Ultron, another international incident involving the Avengers resulting in collateral damage occurs, prompting politicians to form a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to call in the team. When Steve Rogers attempts to protect his friend Bucky Barnes from this act, he is brought into conflict with Tony Stark. This results in the fracturing of the Avengers into two opposing factions—one led by Rogers, who wishes to operate without regulation, and the other by Stark, who supports government oversight—while the world is threatened by a new enemy.
This movie is emotion rollercoaster. One second you’re laugh, next you’re angry. There only few scene that looks calm, in order to explain the purpose of Bucky’s comeback. Your heartbeat can’t stop, no break time.
The first 1 hour is TeamCap vs TeamIronMan, next hour is revelation. This movie didn’t talk about good vs bad, but how the empire fall. In this case, Avengers. Zeemo, the real villain in this movie even stated, “ I wanna see the empire fall,”. Also, when he asked what he feel after he failed, he asked back, “ Did I?” which implies that he is actually succeed.
Before the movie released, my Facebook timeline was flooded by post, “ TeamCap or TeamIronMan? Which side are you?” and most of people chose TeamCap. Their reason is because IronMan support government while Captain America wants freedom, and yeah, who doesn’t love freedom? But the intro scene has been show us why IronMan chose to sign. He scared if his power hurt citizen. He tried to protect Scarlet Witch, but unfortunately his way is wrong in Scarlet’s eyes.
To me, both of them are selfish.
Tony blinded by his fear and trauma of his loss, while Steve blinded by his friendship with Bucky. Both of them didn’t think the consequence, but Steve is the most selfish in here. He know the truth but decided to hide it. His fear of being hurt with truth is blinded his decision. For Tony, I felt like saw myself in him. We both blinded by our fear, and we both feel like the world turns back against us. K said, the differences between me and Tony is how big his ego is.
I honestly feel sad seeing how many people think this is just about government vs freedom. There’s so many things happen in this movie, and the whole government thing is just small part of it. We learn how misunderstanding can break the friendship, learn how fear can influence our action, and more. I wish the audience can see more than just, “ KYAAA CAPTAIN AMERICA WHY U SO HOT “ or “ Cap is more better than Iron bcoz he’s siding freedom “
Because if you still think this is only about government vs freedom, I think you also blind.
