Captain America Civil War – Film Review (no spoilers)

It’s time for the next instalment in the Marvel film universe. Captain America Civil war hits the UK screens April 29th. The build up has been immense.

Friday saw the release of Disney’s 55th animation Zootropolis, and I was lucky enough to attend an advance screening.

Once she has completed her training, she gets assigned to the police department of Savannah central in the city of Zootropolis. A buzzing city where...
