For those suffering superhero fatigue, apocalypse exhaustion, action enervation, and other symptoms of blockbuster overload, don’t reach for the aspirin, and god forbid, don’t stay home, but rather, buy a ticket to Captain America: Civil War. Full disclosure: I haven’t seen it, but I have seen the advance reviews, and never have I read so many thoughtful raves for a movie like this one. Civil War dives deep into the issues superhero narratives raise and then bury, without being silly and pretentious and, above all, without sacrificing the production values we expect blockbusters to deliver — which, it should be said, are handled with intelligence and finesse. Starring the incomparable Robert Downey, Jr., as Iron Man; the inimitable Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow; as well as Don Cheadle, Chris Evans, Paul Bettany, and Bill Hurt.—Peter Biskind

“Packed to bursting with the one ingredient Batman v Superman lacked: joy.”—Tom Huddleston, Time Out

“A deep exploration of friendship and family and what sacrifices should be made to hold onto both.”—Brian Truitt, USA Today

“The shaming of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will continue apace — or better still, be forgotten entirely — in the wake of Captain America: Civil War, a decisively superior hero-vs.-hero extravaganza that also ranks as the most mature and substantive picture to have yet emerged from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.”—Justin Chang, Variety
