Buy it... if you desire a modest improvement over Henry Jackman's prior entry in the franchise, this score dropping much of the synthetic edge for a beefier orchestral presence.

Avoid it... if you understandably expect to hear satisfying thematic continuity in the franchise, Jackman still writing anonymous new themes as if no other composer has ever established superior alternatives for the same characters before.

Captain America: Civil War: (Henry Jackman) What does it mean for a franchise when negotiations with actors become the most important aspect of its ongoing production? The quantity of Marvel Universe characters intertwined in the series of films inspired by the classic comic books ballooned to ridiculous levels by the latter half of the 2010's, development of each one unsatisfyingly minimal and meaningless. But who cares about any of that when more action figures can be cranked out in the also ever-expanding merchandising realm? This whole Marvel phenomenon is commercially tasteless from an artistic viewpoint, but credit filmmakers Anthony and Joe Russo for infusing enough integrity in their products to keep audiences, including critics, happy and eager to continue opening those wallets. In 2016's Captain America: Civil War, the franchise seeks to wrap up the original Captain America trilogy while expanding upon a slew of additional characters that are positioned to join the titular hero in even more fanboy bait over subsequent years. In this particular entry, with both Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Avengers: Age of Ultron establishing the timeline, the heroes are split by United Nations action to regulate them, all the while the terrorist organization Hydra continues causing problems as per usual. At a time when audiences were treated to seeing Batman and Superman clash on the big screen, it's only natural to see more division in the fashion that the world unfortunately seems to desire. Yesterday's divorce court television is today's "end of the world" superhero face-offs. With both Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War performing extremely well at the box office, expect the Russos to return for more Marvel adventures, a move that solidifies composer Henry Jackman's place in the franchise. While Jackman has proven himself highly capable in several genres through the years, his superhero music in the X-Men and Captain America areas has not matched that of Brian Tyler, Patrick Doyle, Danny Elfman, Alan Silvestri, or Christophe Beck. Some cynical listeners attribute this comparatively poor result from Jackman to the "Remote Control Effect," with Jackman's scores emanating from and, as some would say, suffering the consequences of the derivative influence of Hans Zimmer procedures. Jackman's score for The Winter Soldier was widely derided for its abrasiveness and lack of loyalty to Silvestri's franchise theme. In Civil War, the result is slightly better but still a disloyal mess of scatterbrained ideas.
