First ‘Captain America: Civil War’ Reactions Appear Online, What Do Critics Think?

Captain America: Civil War isn’t in cinemas for another month, but some very lucky critics have been privy to an early screening for the film, and they’ve even been allowed by Marvel to discuss their thoughts on the film, too.

And the general consensus, for the time being, is that it’s a huge success. You can check out some of the initial reactions to the film below.

But not everyone was completely won over by Captain America: Civil War. Some journalists took to their Twitter accounts to instead register their disappointment with the blockbuster.

Others made sure to insist that while Captain America: Civil War isn’t completely perfect, it’s still a rollicking and enjoyable film that Marvel fans will enjoy.

But while most Marvel fans will be jumping for joy at the original reactions to Captain America: Civil War, they should also be warned that Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice was originally met with a similar response after its first screening, too.

Obviously, once the critical consensus finally came in the reaction to Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice died down quite rapidly. In fact, the Zack Snyder-directed blockbuster now has a score of just 29 percent on Rotten Tomatoes.

However, Marvel Studios films usually fare much better on the movie reviews website. In fact the lowest score that any of its 13 films have on there is just 67 percent, which is what 2008’s The Incredible Hulk and 2013’s Thor: The Dark World amassed. Meanwhile its highest is Iron Man’s 94 percent.

We’ll learn if Captain America: Civil War can top this total somewhere around its May 4, 2016, release date. And the above suggests that the chances of that are very, very promising.
