Captain America: The Winter Soldier - Review
The Winter Soldier takes place two years after the Battle of New York. Steve Rogers has been living in D.C. and working for S.H.I.E.L.D. He’s still adjusting to the change in culture and taking music suggestions along the way. The first opening action sequence features Rogers rescuing hostages from a S.H.I.E.L.D. vessel that’s been taken over by pirates. Natasha Romanoff went along for the ride but seemed to be on a mission of her own. She extracted information from the ship’s computer. The information was requested by Nick Fury.
Nick Fury was chased down by the police and S.H.I.E.L.D. itself. They were lead by a mysterious ninja looking assassin known as the Winter Soldier. Fury gets himself out of a very sticky situation in a very badass manner. He seeks refuge at Rogers apartment and tells him to trust no one.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier is nothing but action packed. The dialogue was a bit “bleh” in spots but the action will keep your blood pumping. Fury has a super awesome scene in one of the SHIELD armored smart cars that was mind blowing. Captain and Black Widow make a great team. The mystery villain was super awesome. Captain makes a new friend. His names Sam Wilson and he’s known as Falcon but I’m not sure if they actually called him Falcon at all during the movie. Cobie Smulders is back as Maria Hill and we even get to see good ol’ Peggy Carter for a tiny bit. Oh, and Abed!
Hail HYDRA!…I mean…
Any Marvel fan will find enjoyment in viewing Captain America: The Winter Soldier. It wasn’t my favorite but it wasn’t bad by any means. I’ll always enjoy a little screen time with the Captain.
