Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Actors: Chris Evans (Losers, Cellular)
Scarlett Johansson (Lost in Translation, The Prestige)
Samuel L. Jackson (Robocop, Pulp Fiction)
Robert Redford (The Last Castle, Spy Game)

Directors: Anthony and Joe Russo (You, Me, and Dupree)

As the Captain struggles to adapt to modern living as he faces a new threat from old history.

Chris Evans once again is Captain America and doesn’t disappoint in this new marvel adaptation. With the first Captain America being criticized for not having a whole lot of humor in it, this one gives you quite a bit of one liners while still being the dark comic book movies that everyone loves. The Russo brothers bring in acting great Robert Redford as the antagonist. Redford’s character is trying to rebuild the world for peace and in his quest to do so, stands for against everything that the Captain stands for, which in turn could offer some anti-political sentiments/big brother commentary, but that’s for you to decide. You are also introduced to some new characters, like Falcon, Crossbones, and of course The Winter Soldier. If you know anything about the comic book world, they’re setting things up for the new Avengers movie next year, which of course will be huge!

Nearly all of this movie was relevant. In most movies there are some scenes that you could cut out and it would not effect the movie, but not in this one. You have to give a lot of credit to the editing crew and the directors for doing that. The CGI was also top of line but when you have these big budget films, what else do you expect.

This movie is for all the fans of Marvel and fits a lot of different genres, so nearly everyone could see it with out any problem. As a recommendation, watch the first Captain America so you aren’t lost in this one.

I give it 9 out of 10 popcorns.


Rated PG-13 for intense sequences of violence, gunplay and action throughout
