Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Baby Huey's Captain America: The Winter Soldier Review

Last week I was able to attend an advance private screening of Captain America: The Winter Soldier. This is the sequel to 2011’s Captain America: The First Avenger. If you’re like me, a fan of superhero/comic book movies, you’re going to love this movie. If you’re not familiar with the Marvel Cinematic Universe, this is the third movie from Phase 2 of the Marvel Superhero movies leading up to Avengers: Age of Ultron. If you haven’t done so already, I would recommend seeing Captain America: The First Avenger and The Avengers beforehand to have a better understanding of the back story of Captain America before seeing the new movie.

I’ll just say it right off the bat, this movie was amazing. The story was incredible and the action was fantastic. This movie is a game changer in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Just thinking about the movie makes me want to go see it again, lol. Okay, let me contained myself and do my best to explain why the movie was so awesome without giving away any spoilers.

The story was very well written. In an established superhero world where in previous movies you have of a cocky billionaire with a tricked out iron suit, a green monster with anger issues, an alien from another planet with long blonde hair who can beat people up with his hammer, to the average person one would think Captain America is quite the boring superhero compared to his Avengers peers. However this movie changes that belief with the story and makes Captain America one of the most exciting characters to watch. It is a game changer in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I won’t give anything away, but there is some twists and surprises that will affect future Marvel movies and their characters. If you’re a fan of espionage, spy thriller type movies, for example, Jason Bourne, where the good guy can’t trust anyone and has to take down a corrupted organization, this movie will have you hooked in from the begining. There was definitely a more serious tone to this movie compared to the first one, which did a better job of grabbing my attention and juggling my emotions. From what I have been told by my fellow comic book nerds, this movie stays very close to the original comic books story lines but adding a few twists and surprises  (in a good way) to stay on track with the established story lines in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. At the same time, I felt there was great balance of humor and funny one liners from the characters to help add entertainment value. Steve Rogers aka Captain America is coping with the world today and where does he belong post the events from the first Avengers movie (because he was frozen for 70 years). Rogers works for Shield and is there to help him, but Rogers gets involved with a conspiracy inside Shield and learns that he can't trust everyone. Not only is he dealing with a conspiracy, he doesn’t know where he belongs within the big Government and compared to the world he came from to the world now. On top of that, he has to fight and stop a deadly assassin named "The Winter Soldier." The movie does a great job tying the world of Marvel together. They do mention where other avengers are and feels like the movie was happening when everything else was happening. It was interesting to see the dynamic of how Rogers deals with the world of today and how he deals with Shield, you feel more sympathetic towards Rogers as a person than just a hero. There are some great easter eggs of other superheros.

Chris Evans reprises his role of Steve Rogers aka Captain America. Evans delivered once again, showing a super soldier with badass fighting skills with a boy scout moral attitude. We haven’t seen a character like this since the first Superman movie. Samuel L. Jackson aka Nick Fury and Scarlet Johansen aka Black Widow had a great chemistry with Evans, largely due to the fact they had larger roles/screen time in this movie compared to past Marvel movies. Captain America and Black Widow worked very well together and sidekicks and helping each other out as they take on the Winter Soldier. Newcomer, Anthony Mackie aka The Falcon makes his debut in this movie and was a big help for Captain America. When the Falcon first appeared in the movie, everyone in the movie theater began clapping. The Falcon's role in the movie was nicely written, very similar to Iron Man and War Machine. Sebastian Stan aka The Winter Soldier nailed the dark, gritty, killer instinct personality of the Winter Soldier and poses a huge threat to Captain America. Plus, Robert Redford brings even more credibilty to the movie with his great acting.

The action was intense but still easy to watch and follow along. The up close hand to hand combat was fantastic and shows how badass Captain America is. I didn’t realize how tough using a shield can  be to now. Captain America uses his shield like a boomerang to take out his foes. As Captain America, the Black Widow and the Falcon take on the Winter Soldier you can expect a fast pace, full of explosions but not so over the top you loose focus. The action is something out of a Bourne movie, gritty and real intense.

If you’re a casual fan of superhero movies I feel you will enjoy seeing this movie as well. There are some easter eggs in this movie that you might need to ask your fellow comic book nerd to help explain more. With that being said, make sure to stay to the very end of the credits, there are two separate bonus scenes. I know the summer blockbuster movies don’t start until May but I will call this the official unofficial kickoff to the 2014 summer blockbuster movie season, since this movie comes out in April. I have been saying this time and time again. Over the last six years, Marvel has helped revamped the summer blockbuster movie season and Captain America: The Winter Soldier is arguably their best movie to date (yes, even better than the Avengers). This movie raises the standards for all future superhero movies and I’m excited to see what else Marvel has up their sleeves. Captain America: The Winter Soldier comes out to theaters on Friday, April 4th, 2014.
