CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

I never go to movies on the first day they open.

Too crowded, too much hype.

But there was something about "Captain American: Civil War" that made me want to see it on the first day. Probably my kids and my dad nagging me to go.

I can sum up my experience in four words: Marvel's best movie yet.

And, really, it's not even close. The movie runs two hours and 27 minutes, but nearly every minute is action packed and the best part is, every character (and there's a lot of them) get their own signature sequences.

By now, you've probably heard what the movie is about. The government and Tony Stark want The Avengers put in check and Captain America doesn't like it.

So the tension builds until finally Stark and his super team come face to face with Cap' and his team.

Let me tell you, the fight does not disappoint. All of your favorites are involved: Iron Man, Black Widow, Captain America, Hawkeye, etc. 

There's even one event during the fight where the crowd in my theater clapped and cheered.

The highlights for me were Black Panther played by Chadwick Boseman and Spider-man played by Tom Holland. 

Boseman should be a familiar face; he’s played movie versions of Jackie Robinson and James Brown. He really doesn't have a "side" in this one; he just wants justice for an incident earlier in the movie.

Holland is spot-on as Peter Parker/Spider-man; wise-cracking during the big fight, but he still has the wide-eyed awe of a teenager fighting alongside the heroes he's seen on TV/

And like every Marvel movie, there’s just the right balance of action and humor.

"Captain America: Civil War" will make a boatload of money this weekend, and it deserves every penny.

I'm not giving too much away, because I know if someone spoiled it for me I would want to hit them upside the head with Captain America's shield.

So if you want to know which team wins, you'll have to go see it for yourself.
