    Civil War


    "Civil War" feels like a slap in the face, serving as a wake-up call to stop turning our eyes away from the realities of conflict. This isn't your typical action-packed blockbuster; it's a genuine portrayal of war in all its raw, cruel, and disturbing essence. While it does feature action sequences, it's not the kind of film that glorifies explosions and destruction.
