Captain America: The Winter Soldier
Forget, Batman and Spider-Man, Captain America is the man!
Chris Evans plays Steven Rogers aka Captain America and he’s back, back from his solid state! As the movie opens, Steven is working for S.H.I.E.L.D. and trying to figure out who he is and where he fits in to society now. Natasha Ramanoff aka the Black Widow, is played by Scarlett Johansson. Natasha and Steve work together on an important mission, but unfortunately after going on the mission everything at S.H.I.E.L.D goes wrong. Samuel L. Jackson plays Nick Fury, and he knows something suspicious is happening and doesn’t trust anyone in the force. In the movie we meet Alexander Pierce, played by Robert Redford, who is a good friend of Nick and is the senior leader in S.H.I.E.L.D., and a member of the World Security Council. Then, we are introduced to another new character, a muscular assassin named The Winter Solider who is after Steve, Natasha and just about anyone who has a connection with them. This causes political upset and things go wrong with everyone at S.H.I.E.LD. Steve and Natasha must figure out why this is all happening. The movie also stars Anthony Mackie, Sam Wilson aka the Falcon, Cobie Smulders as Maria Hill, Frank Grillo as Brock Rumlow, and Emily VanCamo as Agent 13. The movie was directed by brothers Anthony and Joe Russo.
This Marvel is by far one of the best movies ever! There are so many awesome and exciting events that take place in the movie. Chris Evans steals the movie and does an epic job and I loved his character development in the movie. I was so interested in the fact that Steve was brought back from his solid state and yet Steve has to adjust to living in the modern world. He is also trying to figure himself out as a person and where he tries to fit into society. I like this particular part of the movie because we all try to fit into society and find a place where we feel we belong. Chris as Captain America knows how to kick butt! He has awesome fight scenes in the film and it looks like Chris did all the stunts himself. I also loved how he interacted with all of the characters especially with Anthony Mackie and Scarlett Johansson. Speaking of Scarlett, Scarlett Johansson also knows how to kick butt! I loved Scarlett as the Black Widow and especially loved her in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and also in The Avengers. Scarlett has attitude, sass, and is fearless. She looks great in the movie and actually reminds me of Kim Possible. I love the Black Widow because she’s a fantastic role model for young girls. Anthony Mackie is also awesome and this has to be my ultimate favorite role he has ever done. He was really into his role and I can tell by his looks, it seems like he had lots of fun. He honestly played a true friend in the movie and was willing to sacrifice his own life to help Steve and Natasha. I don’t want to spoil anything about who plays the bad guys in the movie, but the people who play them are fantastic. Their parts fit them perfectly and they were very smart and villainous. I also can’t forget to mention, of course, Nick Fury played by Samuel L. Jackson. He plays the man in charge and knows all the lies and secrets that are being passed around S.H.I.E.L.D. Nick is an interesting character. I like the fact that Samuel L. Jackson presents Nick Fury as a guy with a dark past. In the end, you would not want to mess with Nick or his eye patch. Director brothers, Anthony and Joe Russo are known for directing their comedies like You, Me and Dupree. Taking a big step to direct a major Marvel movie is an incredible career milestone. These brothers did an absolutely perfect job with the movie and brought tension, drama, action, and fun to the big screen. I also really like the story and really got into the movie as it caught my attention the entire time. I’m glad that the movie didn’t get too political, FYI, I’m not that into politics. In the end this movie is filled with cliffhangers that will leave you guessing what’s going to happen next. Also, the movie is officially one of the best movies of the year!
Being one of the most epic movies of the year, I give this movie an “A+”
