Review of the film "The First Avenger: Confrontation"

An excellent comic blockbuster studio Marvel, in which former super-friends become super-enemies.

evaluation

The Avengers are conducting a special operation in Africa, as a result of which dozens of civilians are killed. The patience of the international community is coming to an end, and the UN presents an ultimatum to superheroes. Either they come under the control of a special commission, which will decide when and how to act, or are outlawed. Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) and several of his closest allies support this decision, while Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) and his best friends refuse to follow him. In their opinion, bureaucrats are too corrupt to trust them with power over superheroes. Initially, it is only an ideological confrontation, but the "cold" war becomes "hot" when the authorities accuse the terrorist act of Baki Barnes (Sebastian Stan), a former associate of Rogers, who was kidnapped and zombified by Hydra. If Stark and his team are trying to arrest Barnes, then Rogers and his friends take the side of the alleged villain to prove his innocence and identify real criminals.

Let's start with the main thing. The new comic superblockbuster studios Marvel and Disney did what the recent blockbuster DC Comics and Warner could do "Batman vs. Superman: At the dawn of justice"If it was not taken as a second picture of the new DC Comics, but as a tragic culmination of a long series of productions that trace the acquaintance and friendship of the famous superheroes. "Confrontation" takes loved ones spectators and immensely respecting each other characters and pulls them on different sides of the ring for an epic battle.

While the heroes are shared only by ideology, there is a chance that they will reconcile and again become a single team. But, as is usually the case in civil wars (just like "Civil War", the English subtitle of the tape is translated), the snowball of contradictions is rapidly expanding. To the ideological disputes personal grievances are added, and when blood begins to flow on the screen, reconciliation becomes impossible. Although the characters genuinely suffer because they go against each other, they can not retreat. Too much is at stake.

In the film, two characters named Ross - General Thaddeus Ross in the performance of William Hurt and an official Everett Ross performed by Martin Freeman. As far as we know, they are not related, and they come from different comics. The first - from the comics about the Hulk, and the second - from the comics about the Black Panther

However, at some point there is a terrible suspicion that the "Confrontation" will end just like "Batman vs. Superman" - the heroes quickly measure male dignity, and then shake hands and together fight with the common enemy (this is not a spoiler - "Batman vs. Superman "produced half of the plot in trailers). But no - the brothers-directors Anthony и Джо Rousseau, who earlier removed "The First Avenger: Another War", An error Zach Snyder did not repeat.

A common enemy of the film's heroes does exist, but his punishment does not subordinate the picture to himself. This is a secondary storyline, and it does not distract from the main dish - the two culminating battles of superheroes (this is also not a spoiler - fragments of both fights are in the trailers). First, the supporters of Stark and Rogers led by their leaders fight against the wall, and then, after a short time, Iron Man and Captain America are fighting for life and death. Well, almost to death. They would not be the noblest superheroes, if indeed they killed each other. But before this almost comes, because both have good reasons. Especially at Stark.

A small role played by T'Chaki, T'Challa's father, was played by the distinguished South African artist John Cani. He was the first black actor of South Africa, who in the days of apartheid was allowed to play Othello with a white partner in the role of Desdemona

Like "Batman vs. Superman", "Confrontation" lasts about two and a half hours. It includes a complex and tortuous plot, several pathos monologues, various and ingeniously staged action scenes and two new superheroes for the Marvel cycle: Black Panther (he is also the king of the fictional African country Wakanda named T'Challa) and Spider-Man (he is also an American high school student Peter Parker). Unfortunately, if you do not find fault with the action tape, then the beginners are not particularly pleased.

As you might expect, Spider-Man is great in combat, and he paints the "battle of the Titans" not only with his spider super receptions, but also with a firm sense of humor. The latter has always been an important part of his image in comics, but was not emphasized in previous films about Peter Parker, created by Sony Pictures studio. But in the hilarious scene of Peter's recruiting, in which Stark comes to his home, the young British actor Tom Holland demonstrates the complete absence of star charisma. Of course, Parker does not have to look like Captain America. But there must be something in it that would stop the viewer's view. He's a Spider-Man, not a simple schoolboy. In "Confrontation" this is a small problem, but it makes us afraid to wait for the already announced "solo" Marvel film about Spider-Man. We do not need this Parker!

У Chess Bossman, who played T'Challa, with charisma all right. The trouble of the Black Panther in the other - it turned out to be "cardboard". "Paphos Panther pathos" - more about it do not say anything. Even in the robot Vizhene more humaneness than in T'Chall, the most boring superhero film. As for his super abilities, Panther can be defined as a strengthened Catwoman. Not the most impressive set of talents against the background of the skills of some other characters.

Who else appears in the picture? In addition to the above-mentioned superheroes, the Black Widow, the Falcon, the Scarlet Witch and the Warmaster take constant part in the action, and specially for the culminating battle Falcon Eye and the Ant man join them. Involving Spider-Man and Man-Ant seems somewhat contrived, as they only met with the main characters, and this is still a story about the confrontation of old comrades-in-arms. But since their unique skills allow them to play an exceptionally important role in the overall battle, the claims to the Spider and the Ant are removed as soon as they show what they are capable of.

In general, "Confrontation" - one of the best films of the Marvel cycle, if not the best, and his final fight - this is perhaps the most dramatic battle in the history of comic strips. The picture has drawbacks such as the lack of charisma in Holland or the fact that her first half is a little awkward because of the juggling of a crowd of characters. But this is such a successful combination of unexpected plot twists, a powerful action, a heat of passion and witty jokes that you will regret if you miss it in the movies.

Since 5 May at the cinema.
