Captain America: The Winter Soldier Movie Poster
“For Steve Rogers, awakening after decades of suspended animation involves more than catching up on pop culture; it also means that this old school idealist must face a world of subtler threats and difficult moral complexities. That becomes clear when Director Nick Fury is killed by the mysterious assassin, the Winter Soldier, but not before warning Rogers that SHIELD has been subverted by its enemies. When Rogers acts on Fury’s warning to trust no one there, he is branded as a traitor by the organization. Now a fugitive, Captain America must get to the bottom of this deadly mystery with the help of the Black Widow and his new friend, The Falcon. However, the battle will be costly for the Sentinel of Liberty, with Rogers finding enemies where he least expects them while learning that the Winter Soldier looks disturbingly familiar.”
Captain America (Chris Evans) is still trying to come to terms with who and what he is but now he must face someone he remembers from his past. It seems the Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) is the strongest creation and it’s up to members of SHIELD to try and stop him as well as a criminal (Robert Redford) wanting to cause mass destruction.
“Captain America: The Winter Soldier“ is a rare sequel that actually manages to be better than the original film – “Captain America: The First Avenger“. That’s not to say the first film wasn’t good but this one here pretty much adds a lot of steroids to the action and makes for an overall much better film. The cast is certainly in top form and director Anthony and Joe Russo certainly know how to milk an action scene for everything that it’s worth.
There’s no question that the highlights of the movie are the extended action scenes that features some terrific looking CGI that perfectly mixes in with the live action on the screen. It’s really amazing to see how far technology has come over the past decade and this film certainly looks tremendous. The action scenes contain so much chaos and destruction that it’s really a wonder that this stuff can be pulled off. There’s one great action sequence after another and this here certainly makes the film.
Evans is obviously quite comfortable in his role as Captain America and he’s perfectly able to bring the human element that the story needs. The supporting cast is equally good with Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson and Anthony Mackie all doing nice work. Stan is also extremely good in his role as the villain and when you’ve got someone like Robert Redford it just brings your film to another level. “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” is a fun, fast and over-the-top comic book action movie that actually delivers a good time.
