Short Movie Review
Captain America the Winter Soldier is directed by the Russo brothers and stars Chris Evans as Captain America, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Samuel Jackson as Nick Fury, Anthony Mackie as Falcon. In this movie, you get to see shield as an organization kind of turn on itself. Certain things happen that caused people to be revealed for who they really are and Captain America has suddenly hunted by this organization that he thought was awesome.
The essential plot of this movie is that the Winter Soldier is an incredibly, precise, assassin who is sent to take out Captain America and they have to figure out where he’s from who he is, what’s his past, is there a way to defeat him. Also, this whole shield thing is going on it’s looming over them and this movie is freaking amazingly great. This is hands-down, the best standalone Marvel film we have had so far. The only competition that really had was that first Iron Man movie and this film exceeds it on every level.
In regards to sequels, this is one of the best sequels we’ve had in many years. This reminds us of the Empire Strikes Back or The Dark Knight. It just blows everything about the original away.
One of the best parts about this movie is how political it is. This movie is very realistic and grounded, it’s by far Marvel’s most grounded film. It feels like a real world where you’re able to accept all these things that happen but it’s still very funny and it has that great field that the Avengers had where characters have all these little in jokes and you can tell certain things are pulled right out of the comics for fans to be very happy about. Lots of little Easter eggs in there, a lot of people will be very satisfied with many things in this movie.
