Film Review: “Captain America: The Winter Soldier”…

Starring: Chris Evans, Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson, Robert Redford

Directed by: Anthony and Joe Russo

Today, I decided to go to the mall to check out a movie just to get out of the house and do something. I have been wanting to see “Captain America: Winter Soldier” film for a long while which this is the second Captain America movie by Marvel. Here is my review…

Plot/synopsis:¬†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 comes 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.

I like Captain America. He has always been one of my favorite superheroes. Probably because he’s one of the very few superheroes who never hid his identity like most superheroes do. However, this movie here doesn’t really leave off from the first Captain America film. This film actually takes place after the events of the first “Avengers” movie.

Getting right to it, I was very surprised on how great “Captain America: Winter Soldier” really is. I think it’s pretty much the best superhero movie of the year so far. The film is very politically driven, though. It focuses on current politics of what’s going on in the USA today. It covers government corruption, government spying, drones, etc. It also focuses on the fight for American freedom. I wanted to see this movie ’cause the movie reviews were saying this was a pretty conservative movie and it was; however, this film had a lot of liberal politics in it too so I guess there’s something for both parties if you’re into politics.

On with the film, I was pretty impressed with the story and plot. The movie actually had a “plot”!!! It’s not just an action movie and a popcorn flick, it definitely had a story to tell which most superhero films are missing these days.

The action scenes were a lot of fun and a total surprise to watch as well. It was nice to finally see Sam L. Jackson get into action scenes ’cause you don’t see him in action scenes that much. I don’t want to reveal spoilers on what he does but Sam does get into violence. Even Robert Redford got into a little bit of action. Speaking of Robert Redford, he has been one of my favorite actors for years and he killed it in this movie like he usually does. It was nice to see Sam and Robert in the same movie together. Two Hollywood legends!!! Acting was really good all-around by the cast. Chris, Scarlett and everyone else was cool.

The Winter Soldier villain was a badass villain too. He was pretty dark and scary looking which you don’t see much in superhero movies.

I thought “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” was a phenomenal film. Definitely check it out!

Two thumbs up!

BREAKING NEWS: Captain America is finally casted…

Marvel films have finally casted their Captain America, and that is Chris Evans. I actually feel¬†pretty good about this casting. Nothing amazing or mind blowing, but pretty good. I’ll take anybody but that overrated Channing Tatum.

Lets hope they make this a good movie ’cause I always liked the Captain America character.
