Captain America: Civil War Blu-ray, Video Quality
Captain America: Civil War boasts a very detailed, naturally colorful, and splendidly accurate 1080p transfer. The image appears dialed in from the first shot to the last; the digital source only leaves the image appearing every-so-mildly glossy but never particularly flat. It's healthy and cinematic, for the most part, particularly as it's capable of revealing the finest intimate details on uniforms -- textures on Captain America's, Falcon's, and Black Panther's more complexly structured attire; wear and battle damage on the Iron Man and War Machine suits; fine metallic details on the Winter Soldier's arm -- while showcasing plenty of excellent skin and facial hair details, pinpoint clothing definition (notably some of Stark's high end suits), and general environmental surface details. Image clarity is outstanding, with never a hint of softness appearing in even the most challengingly dark and dense moments. Color saturation is quite good. Vision red is deep, Iron Man's color combo appears accurate, Captain America's darker blue shines, and some of the grayer and less vibrant costumes -- Ant-Man, Hawkeye -- present the inherently darker shades with ease. Black levels are true and deep. Flesh tones hold natural throughout. A touch of aliasing is visible in a handful of shots, though nothing worth more than a passing mention. This is a terrific overall effort from Disney.
Captain America: Civil War Blu-ray, Audio Quality
Captain America: Civil War boasts a very good, but not quite reference quality, DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 lossless soundtrack. Early on in particular, the track struggles to muscle up and produce the sort of deep, rip-roaring, foundation-shaking bass one would expect. Explosions and action chaos come across as a little timid, offering punch but not enough punishment to truly shine. Surround details and imaging are consistently strong, but lacking aggression. The track does gain some intensity as it moves along, or so it seems, featuring more dynamic bass and involved movement in some of the film's later large-scale action sequences. Crashes hit hard, explosions seem more raucous, and immersion is enhanced. Music comes through with excellent definition, wide-berth front stage coverage, and plenty of surround detail. Dialogue is fine, generally, though some hushed conversations can be a mild strain to hear at reference levels. The track is outstanding; it's just a push or light shove from greatness.
The most explosive clash to ever rock the Marvel Cinematic Universe ignites a firestorm of conflict in the game-changing epic, CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR. In the wake of collateral damage, government pressure to rein in the Avengers drives a deep wedge between Captain America (Chris Evans) and Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), causing a catastrophic rift that turns the two friends into bitter enemies. Against a backdrop of divided loyalties, their fellow Avengers must deal with the fallout. Pick a side in this spectacular adventure, packed with mind-blowing action and suspense.
Top customer reviews
- Themes: Too many hollywood films glorify violence and revenge. This movie takes pains to show the cost of these battles, and the decisions the characters make. It's not about good vs evil here. The decision made at the end about revenge is perfect. I love that Zemo is a complex, relatable villain.
- Acting and Character: It's as good as any drama out there. Robert Downey Jr seriously turns in a wonderful, nuanced performance. The character clashes are completely believable. Black Widow's choices sound odd on paper but they just make sense for who she is.
- Fights and Character: The Russos do such a wonderful job telling a story through action. Every character has a unique fighting style. Each fight tells you something about them and their relationships. I love that Cap handles each combatant differently. He's always thinking strategically. Just watch how he handles Spidey, who technically should outgun him.
- Black Panther: I cared more for Black Panther and his father than I did Superman and the Kents in the recent DC films. And they had two movies while these guys had just minutes of screen time in a packed film. (No hating on DC though. Wonder Woman was amazing and their animated universe is just awesome)
As for Cap and Bucky--even admist all the thrilling action set pieces and death-defying stunts, we get a deftly understated emotional arc and very satisfying resolution to their tragic story. Civil War is a beautifully bittersweet end to the Steve Rogers Captain America trilogy overall as well, that manages to have plenty of fun, spectacle, and "feels" in the process. Highly recommended!
