I was also finally able to get out and see it yesterday. Definitely not my favorite (Winter Soldier), but definitely up near the top 5. Thought the plot, action, humor, suspense, etc. were all a good mix. Really liking what the Russo's are doing when they are at the helm and looking forward to what Infinity War has to offer.
The highlight for me was definitely Spiderman - how he was used in the conflict, how he was portrayed by Tom Holland, how Tony Stark designed and gave him his costume... Really looking forward to the new movie and more Aunt May!
My only gripe, and this is definitely personal, was the opening action scenes. I've never been a fan of the in-your-face fight scenes and on-foot chases. I think this is why to this day I've never watched another Hunger Games movie. I could never get past the first one and the running/fighting sequences. The opening scenes in this movie reminded me a lot about that film and just didn't do it for me. I thought that the end fight was much easier to watch and still gave me the level of suspense and realism that I needed without having to be right on top of the action.
Favorite lines - Bucky: You couldn't have done that earlier (after Falcon gets rid of Spiderman). Falcon: I hate you.
