Sandy Kenyon reviews 'Captain America: Civil War'
Sandy Kenyon has his review of Disney's newest movie

NEW YORK (WABC) -- We've seen Batman take on Superman on the big screen this season and now, superheroes are battling again in a new movie, "Captain America: Civil War."

But is the Disney movie's battle worth the cost of admission? It depends who you ask.

Although it's been said that "a house divided against itself cannot stand," "Captain America: Civil War" puts a new spin on that old adage when a dispute breaks out among The Avengers.

Captain America shares his two-and-a-half hour movie with the other Avengers, but the film's central conflict is between Robert Downey Jr.'s Iron Man and the title role, played by Chris Evans.

So what's the issue? Simply said, it's the mayhem caused by The Avengers whenever they're trying to help.

In the movie, the Civil War breaks out between two sides, Team Captain America and Team Iron Man.

Team Captain America includes Evans, Anthony Mackie as Falcon, Paul Rudd as Ant-Man, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye and Elizabeth Olson as Scarlett Witch, while Team Iron Man is made up of Downey, Scarlett Johannson as Black Widow, Don Cheadle as War Machine and Tom Holland as the new Spider-Man.

The battle between the two sides was explained by Chris Evans at the film's premiere.

"Downey feels we should sign these accords and be held accountable by a branch of government telling us when and where we should fight," he said. "Steve Rodgers (Captain America) still believes the safest hands of judgment are our own."

Sebastian Stan plays Winter Soldier, a good guy with an alter-ego who is terrifyingly bad -- seems to agree with Evans.

"It's what makes it controversial," he said. "And I'm one of the guys who kind of stir people up."

You can keep up with all of the controversy during the movie, which is in theaters now. The airport battle scene is a highlight, though the movie goes on a bit long.
