Captain America: The Winter Soldier Review (with Spoilers)

captain-america-now-playing

This movie has cemented Captain America as my favorite Avenger. In a time when superheroes seem to be becoming more edgy and morally ambiguous, it is refreshing to see Cap fight for what’s right simply because it’s right.

The movie starts with Cap becoming more and more frustrated by the secrets that S.H.I.E.L.D. is keeping and when Fury reveals those secrets, Cap begins questioning what his role in S.H.I.E.L.D. should be.

The story is fast paced and, aside from the overuse of the shaky camera that has become prevalent in action movies, the action keeps you on the edge of your seat as do all of the twists that the movie takes. I’m glad that the identity of the Winter Soldier wasn’t the only twist to the movie (I’m very disappointed in Sitwell).

A couple of interesting Easter eggs that were hidden in the movie are the names Steven Strange and Sharon Carter. Strange, of course, is Dr. Strange and he’s movie has been in development for some time. Marvel president, Kevin Feige, responded to that name drop by saying, basically, that they know what the implications are but we don’t yet. And Sharon Carter, in the comics, is Peggy Carter’s niece, Agent 13 and Cap’s love interest.Read More »Captain America: The Winter Soldier Review (with Spoilers)

Captain America: The Winter Soldier Shows the Superhero In Fine Form

I’ll admit, I’m a big fan of Marvel. I’ll also admit that “Captain America: The First Avenger” isn’t one of my favorite Marvel movies.

With the release of “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” however, Marvel not only has another hit on their hands, but firmly entrenches this Avenger as a major force to be reckoned with in the Marvel Universe.

Where the first movie introduced Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) and his superhero alter ego’s origins, this movie takes place in a post-Avengers world. One which Rogers is not only trying to catch up with, but one in which he’s trying to find his place in.

As the movie opens, Captain America is now working for S.H.I.E.L.D., but he’s not totally comfortable with all the grey areas the organization likes to operate in. He has an uneasy working relationship with S.H.I.E.L.D. director Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and fellow agent Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson), also known as Black Widow, and he’s highly suspicious of a new agency project that will neutralize potential threats before they happen.Read More »Captain America: The Winter Soldier Shows the Superhero In Fine Form
