Personally, I don't think the Civil War storyline from Marvel comics needed to be brought into the Cinematic Universe. That being said, the writer and director did a good job of modifying it to fir the events of the earlier Marvel movies, including Avengers and Avengers: Ultron. And at the end, Iron Man had all but conceded to Captain America and his supporters, and there was hope that Rhodes would be rehabilitated. No deaths as in the comic version. There's plenty of action and intrigue, some character development, and great effects. Anyone who likes the Marvel movies should enjoy this one as well,.
