Brief Synopsis:
While Peter Parker sets out to prove himself, Steve Rogers is faced with a drastic choice that will shake the Avengers to their foundations and put him at odds with his close friend Tony Stark, things are complicated further by a bombing in Vienna that allegedly ties back to his best friend, "Bucky" Barnes, the former mercenary known as the winter soldier.
Intention:
With a tighter focus on the narrative and the use of footage from Spider-Man: Homecoming, this edit attempts to provide Civil War with more of a myusstery behind Zemo's scheme as well as an alternate introduction to Peter Parker, the Amazing Spider-Man

I was watching this for the pure enjoyment of it, and there was nothing to pull me out of the moment - it is a truly tighter narrative, and while I certainly enjoyed the original, it was a real improvement to have to guess more about Zemo and his plan, not to be led around to every plot-point. One of my favorite things about fanedited films is we are given the chance to experience the films we love from a new angle, be surprised again by something we have seen before.
Other reviewers had valid feedback that I don't think need to be added to, although technically (how it looked and sounded), it was very good. The narrative issues I think added to a new experience, and even if some scenes were slightly out of place, that's more like real life - there is no perfect way to make these films fit together seamlessly without the occasional backtrack to the past or "needless" exposition.
Really nice work.

I enjoyed this edit more than the original. I know this cut involves two different movies, but hey, for the most part, it works. Great job, Zarius!

Tough call. I liked many things about this edit, except for the alternate introduction to Spider-Man.
I liked the trimming of redundant/repetitive/disappointing scenes, like Peggy's off-screen death or multiple 1991 flashbacks. I liked the mystery around Zemo's plan and seeing it unfold as the Avengers were figuring it out. I am even okay with the complete removal of the opening scene in Lagos, because I never liked how Scarlet Witch was that careless.
But Fanmixing the scenes from Homecoming was not done well continuity-wise, in my opinion. It was a valiant attempt - but completely out of order. I liked setting Peter Parker's visit to the Avengers facility as if it coincided with Steve's leaving to Romania, but that scene is out of place. First, the visual editing of Steve getting an alert was weird. Second, Pepper's presence after the off-screen break-up (the teleprompter issue) was weird. Third, that scene takes place at the end of Homecoming and so breaks the MCU timeline even further (at least until Zarius releases an S-M:H fanedit, but given Bobson's wonderful edit, there isn't really a need for that).
Another issue - the Ferry scene from Homecoming is w-a-a-a-y too long, and again breaks the timeline. I think a trimming of the Queens scene from the theatrical cut would have been better.
And last - I didn't like the trimming of the end-credits.

Thanks for your informed and objective critique...I always love it when I get this kind of feedback

You're not the first person to express these concerns (I was P.M'ed about some of the plot holes by another member who did not want to list a review), it seems the biggest bone of contention with the edit is the choice to include Homecoming footage...while I'm glad you called the attempt a valiant one, I do sort of see your point about it. One thing I will say is that I sort of intend for this film to be standalone, and not be a "go to" replacement edit for people with an MCU collection in mind. This was an attempt at doing something different

also for Pepper, I was trying to convey that Tony was conflicted about whether or not to propose to her, not that they had broken up.

Again, I appreciate what you enjoyed about this and also appreciate your issues with my creative choices, your opinion is valued

This is a superb edit! The tighter focus on the narrative and the use of footage from Spider-Man: Homecoming greatly enhances and improves the pacing of this movie. I really enjoyed seeing the Homecoming scenes again and Zarius connected this together very well. All cuts and additions are expertly done, seamless throughout and the removal of the romance makes for a more serious movie. The cutting of 30 minutes of filler content makes this highly re-watchable now. Fantastic work by Zarius, this is now my go to cut of Civil War, highly recommended!!!
