Movie wasn't what I expected. No explanation on why there is a Civil War. Don't know who is who. Movie was about a group of photographers, more than anything. It had a non-realistic story line except for the ending, when the main character / photographer gets screwed over. This review is coming from a photographer. I tried to give A24 another chance, but the majority of their movies are horrible.

Need to see it in a theater to get the full immersion. Will definitely make you hope we as a nation never descend into that.

Good idea, bad execution. Minimal character development and was underwhelming compared to what the trailer portrayed it to be

As a war veteran, this. hits. HARD! it can happen but for those who don't face reality, you'll never understand. War. is. HELL. People die. The beginning hit really close to home. Great visual and sound effects. Learn from history or else it'll repeat itself!

Trailer is deceiving, not the movie it portrayed. Awful plot. Pointless agenda with no background info other than journalism is challenging. Oh yeah…. and the music didn’t fit the scene(s).

1 hour and 45 minutes to watch the press follow around the so called Civil War without getting an actual backstory. Come on guys, give the fans more of a backstory.

The movies is very slow with little to no action. The best part was the last 20 minutes and best I say very loosely. 👎

very slow with only 20 minutes of action at the very end. The entire movie is dialogue between reporters who say they work for "what's left of the New York Times" For such a great movie title, it was a let down. Not worth it to see in the theatre.

Not at all what I expected, and yet it was a lot better than I expected. I really thought this was going to be some cheesy Red Dawn style movie. I was on the edge of my seat with the story and also enjoyed the great visual effects.

This was an intense watch! It makes you want to look away but simultaneously has you scared to miss anything. Definitely will keep you on the edge of your seat and does well translating the sense of foreboding.

Extremely disappointed, no plot & mirrored after the true life 1/6/22 insurrection !! Waste of money for all those studios procing & backing this film!! I don't mind spending $20 to see movies but this wasn't worth my money & time also a waste to put it in an Imax theater!!

Quite a disappointing movie to say the least. There were only a less than a handful of suspenseful moments but that’s all you get. If anti-climatic is what you’re looking for, this is a must-watch for you, as the ending was an anti-climatic disaster.

Completely disappointing. There’s no story, just following 3 journalists who travel to DC to interview the first journalist who gets to interview the president. Movie was slow, the actions scenes lacked action. Doesn’t even give any backstory to why civil war broke out.

It isn’t what those people will think it is. It’s something better, more timely, and more thrilling — a thoroughly engaging war drama that’s more about people than about politics.

While bound to spark hundreds of think pieces, Alex Garland’s stirring Civil War will undoubtedly go down, too, as one of the most provocative films of the year. It’s also an early contender for one of the best, offering a stunning warning: no matter what the cause, war is hell.

Garland may have just delivered one of the most vicious and unrelenting watches of the year, one that I’ll keep debating and untangling both in my head and with others for a good long while.
