Captain America: The Winter Soldier Review: With the success of the recent marvel films, this one again is sure to do well at the box office. whats more pleasantly surprising is that Captain America: The Winter Soldier is probably the best they’ve made so far, even rivalling the avengers. With these positive reviews this movie will make upwards of 600 million, beating Thor, the dark world, but that it will beat iron man 3. However with the success of this movie, i feel that many more people with be eagerly waiting for the third instalment so watch out Batman V superman! Now “The winter soldier” is everything a Captain America movie should be. While it maintains some of the humour that now has become the trademark of Marvel films, TWS is way more serious than all of them combined. And this is truly where the film feels so brave and yes different than any other superhero flicks that we have seen.
The acting as expected from Scarlett Johansson, Chris Evans and Samuel L. Jackson was excellent. Robert Redford was impeccable in his role and he was worth the effort that Marvel put in to get him on board. The rest of the cast all play their roles extremely well and Marvel have done the right thing by bringing the Falcon in the movie, which was played well by Anthony Mackie. Captain America: The Winter Soldier is a great political thriller and even without the bonus of superheroes, the script/story is a great movie. The superheroes is what we pay and want to see but the amazing flow of the movie itself should leave many satisfied. The superheroes and villains were all great and hope we continue seeing the Falcon in the future along with Black Widow.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier is the most closely linked with The Avengers and also Avengers Age of Ultron, from the rest of the phase 2 films. This is a great movie and one that highly recommend watching. There is plenty of plot, intelligence and sweet characters moments to keep anyone satisfying. This is blockbuster at its finest, a superhero film with heart, immersive action and subtle touches of humour. Totally recommended.
