QUICK TAKE:
Action: Members of a superhero group take sides against each other regarding whether they should fall under multi-national government oversight, all while one tries to protect his childhood friend from others.
PLOT:
Following the mayhem and death resulting from the superhero group The Avengers having defeated a villain, and a subsequent infiltration and thwarting of another villain in Lagos, governments of more than one hundred nations want the superheroes to sign an accord where their actions will be supervised and controlled by the United Nations. Some, such as Tony Stark (ROBERT DOWNEY JR.), a.k.a. Iron Man, -- dealing with guilt over a lost life brought to his attention by the victim's mother -- agrees with Secretary of State Thaddeus Ross (WILLIAM HURT) -- and presses his fellow members to follow suit. The likes of Natasha Romanoff (SCARLETT JOHANSSON), a.k.a. Black Widow, Lieutenant James Rhodes (DON CHEADLE), a.k.a. War Machine, and the ever-evolving Vision (PAUL BETTANY) agree.

Among the dissenters is Steve Rogers (CHRIS EVANS), a.k.a. Captain America, along with Sam Wilson (ANTHONY MACKIE), a.k.a. Falcon, Wanda Maximoff (ELIZABETH OLSEN), a.k.a. Scarlet Witch, and Clint Barton (JEREMY RENNER), a.k.a. Hawkeye, who retires from the group. Steve is concerned about no longer having control of what they can and can't do, a point exacerbated when his childhood friend turned brainwashed super-assassin, Bucky Barnes (SEBASTIAN STAN), a.k.a. the Winter Soldier, is identified as the person responsible for the bombing of a U.N. meeting that takes the life of the King of Wakanda. His son, Prince T'Challa (CHADWICK BOSEMAN), wants revenge and tries to get that via his superhuman alter-ego, Blank Panther.

Unbeknownst to them, the real culprit is Helmut Zemo (DANIEL BRUHL), a man who lost his entire family as collateral damage to The Avengers' actions, and desires to ultimately turn them against each other, starting with reactivating the Winter Soldier. With the help of former S.H.I.E.L.D. agent turned CIA agent Sharon Carter (EMILY VANCAMP), Steve tries to prove his friend's innocence and protect him from harm, something that doesn't sit well with Tony and the others. With both sides gearing up for battle, including Steve's side getting pint-sized superhero Scott Lang (PAUL RUDD), a.k.a. Ant-Man, to join them, and Tony convincing Peter Parker (TOM HOLLAND), a.k.a. Spider-Man, to do the same for his group, the stage is set for an epic battle.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
