Captain America: The Winter Soldier Movie Review

Earlier this week I had a chance to see the newest Marvel movie, Captain America: Winter Soldier and it did not disappoint! Starring Chris Evans as Captain America along with Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), Scarlett Johanson (Black Window), Sam Wilson (Falcon), Robert Redford (Alexander Pierce) and Sebastian Stan (Winter Soldier) — to name a few, this high-action sequel has lots of twists and turns that will keep you on the edge of your seat!

If you’ve been watching the trailers for the Captain America sequel, you’ll notice that there’s not much information as to who the villain is or what’s going on. And for good reason! Basically all you need to know about the plot is that the Captain (who’s non-superhero name is Steve Rogers), is still trying to adjust to live in the modern world and is forced to face a threat from the past – a Soviet criminal, known as the Winter Soldier.

Although I love all of the superheroes in the Avengers, Captain America is one of my favorites. The infusion of the “olden days” makes him oh so classy, and of course, very charming. I also really liked the introduction of Falcon, who played another kind of sidekick to Captain America in the film. I hope he continues to be in the film because the chemistry between the two is awesome – I couldn’t stop laughing!

I’m not sure how or why, but the Marvel movies just keep getting better and better. Similar to Thor 2 (see my review here), I thought this sequel was better than the original (which was already awesome). The crowds are always crazy opening weekend for superhero movies, but this one is worth braving the lines for!

Captain America: The Winter Soldier is in theaters today. Will you be heading out to see it? Who’s your favorite superhero?
