This internationally ratified, United Nations-backed agreement seeks to control when, where and how the Avengers can operate.
However, Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) is wary of such governmental regulation. He doesn’t trust governments or politicians. He does not believe that a UN panel is capable of doing what only the Avengers understand needs to be done.

500 Days Of Film Reviews Raiders Of The Lost Ark Live At London’s Royal Albert Hall
Raiders Of The Lost Ark turns 35 years old this year and what better way to celebrate than with a screening of this classic film at the Royal Albert Hall accompanied by a live orchestra?
Raiders sees archaeology professor and action hero, Indiana Jones (Harrison Ford), racing against time to find the legendary Ark of the Covenant before a group of Nazis get their hands on this powerful ancient relic.
Teaming up with his feisty, hard drinking ex, Marion Ravenwood (Karen Allen), and good friend Sallah (John Rhys-Davies), this quest put Indy's expertise and endurance to the test.
Steven Spielberg's action adventure won five Oscars* in 1982 and is often found at the top of best loved and most critically acclaimed movie lists (Empire placed Raiders at number two in its list of the greatest movies ever made, second only to The Godfather).
The one Oscar that Raiders Of The Lost Ark surely should have won was for John Williams’ Best Music (original score). Okay, Vangelis’ Chariots Of Fire is also rather iconic but, for me, it is Williams all the way.
Raiders Of The Lost Ark Live was accompanied by the wonderful 21st Century Orchestra and conducted by its founder, Ludwig Wicki. The event marks the first time a complete Williams score has been played at the Royal Albert Hall.

500 Days Of Film Reviews Inception And Finds A Layered And Wonderfully Complex Film That Puzzles Long After The Credits Close
Inception is a film that is pretty hard to describe. I really don’t want to give anything away for those of you who haven’t had a chance to see Christopher Nolan’s complex masterpiece. So here goes with my best attempt at a plot summary...
Leonardo DiCapprio plays Dominic Cobb, a man who is able to enter the dreams of others in order to steal ideas - a method called extraction.
For reasons that we do not fully appreciate at the start, Cobb is a wanted man who cannot return to the US and, as a result, cannot see his two young children.
So when Cobb is given the opportunity to have his record expunged, he takes it. All he has to do is plant an idea inside the head of another man (so that he feels that this idea is his own) - a method called inception.
So that will be simple then!
