      Captain America: The Winter Soldier Marvel's Best?

      Posted
      bamoviecritic

      Captain America: The Winter Soldier will turn the Marvel Cinematic Universe upside down! In this installment Steve Rogers must struggle to embrace his role in the modern world while he battles a new threat from old history: the Soviet agent known as the Winter Soldier. Joe Simon and Jack Kirby are the ones who created the comic characters that were used for the film while Ed Brubaker came up with the concept and story. Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely where the ones who wrote the screenplay for this installment. There were two directors for this film and they are Anthony and Joe Russo who are both known for directing films and TV shows such as You, Me and Dupree and Community. Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) is trying to find a way to deal with the fact that things are different in modern-day America. 50 years causes a lot of things to change and while trying to deal with the change a new threat against S.H.I.E.L.D. arises called The Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan). S.H.I.E.L.D. is unsure where the origins of this Winter Soldier are and he is just as powerful as Captain America. Things get worse when S.H.I.E.L.D. is compromised and Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) is murdered. . With little time to spare Captain America decides to launch an investigation into S.H.I.E.L.D.'s origins and it has him returning to the very Army base where he once underwent basic training nearly 100 years ago. What he and Romanoff discover there leads to a very startling development with S.H.I.E.L.D., a top-secret project called "Operation Insight", and the launch of the next generation of Helicarrier. It is here where things go wrong and Agent Romanoff aka Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Captain America are betrayed and left for dead. They escape and now know that S.H.I.E.L.D. and now know something isn't right, so they go and in list the help of Sam Wilson/ Falcon (Anthony Mackie) who has a unique talent that comes in very handy. Can all of them stop the launch of the next generation of Helicarriers before it's too late?? This film takes everything you knew about the Marvel Cinematic Universe and shakes it up. It starts off with Steve Rogers meeting Sam Wilson for the first time and you see Rogers lapping Wilson over and over again showing you how incredibly in shape Rogers actually is. Then Rogers must go because duty calls and that is where he meets up with Agent Romanoff and they go on a mission to save some shield agents, (or at least that is what Rogers is told). At the beginning Rogers and his team are flying over their target and he just jumps out of the plane with no parachute which shocks everyone. Then you get to see Rogers take on almost everyone on the ship by himself using mainly hand to hand combat and throwing his shield around. You finally get to see the shield used a little bit more than just a shield and what it can do is awesome. It is at the end of rescuing everyone captured on the ship that Rogers realizes that Agent Romanoff had a separate mission that he was not aware of and that doesn't fly well with him. He goes to see Nick Fury and express his feeling about this and it is there where he learns that S.H.I.E.L.D. is building Helicarriers that will protect via "fear" according to Rogers. This is where Fury has started to second guess what S.H.I.E.L.D. is doing so he asks his friend Alexander Pierce (Robert Redford), who is part of the World Council, to postpone the production of project Insight. Then there is an awesome car chase seen that ends with Nick Fury being attacked in his car but he somehow manages to escape. Not knowing who to trust he goes to Rogers place to talk to him. Knowing that everything is bugged there he talks via text until he is shot, but not before he was able to give Rogers a USB drive. Wanting to find out who tried to assassinate Fury, Pierce asks Rogers a bunch of questions but is unable to get any answers out of him which leads to one of the most amazing fight scenes I have ever seen. I say that because it all occurs in just the space of an elevator. It all begins with Captain America saying "Before we get started, does anyone want to get out?" Nobody does and then he beats up everyone in the elevator. It gets even better from there as now Captain America is considered a fugitive and must figure things out on this own with only the help of Black Widow. The two of them both go to Rogers old training facility and there is a secret underground facility that has a computer in which the USB drive, that Fury gave him, goes into. It is there that they realize, through the computer that has the mind of Dr. Arnim Zola (Toby Jones), that things get crazy. They plan on using the Helicarriers to murder any "potential" threats based off their past. While learning all this Rogers and Agent Romenoff are almost killed. The two of them go to the only one that they can trust, which is Rogers new friend Sam Wilson, and that is where he joins up with the two of them to try to stop the horrible plans that they have learned. Now the entire film was amazing, it was full of action, and cast with amazing chemistry. The only thing that bothered me was a scene close to the ending because it was set up exactly like the first Captain America film. Now I won't tell you anymore about it than that because I don't want to spoil it for you. It just seems ridiculous to me that things happen very similar to Captain America that could determine the outcome on his life. Overall though I would give this film an A+ because it is something that I could watch over and over again and enjoy it every time while believing it along the way. It also changed the way of thinking for the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe which was epic especially if you were one of the many watching ABC's Marvel Agent's Of S.H.I.E.L.D. If you have not seen this yet... YOU MUST. For more of my reviews go to www.blakeancell.com

      The BEST Marvel Studios since The Avengers

      Captain America: The Winter Soldier is not only a great sequel but perhaps the best standalone Marvel Studios film to date. Trust me, I don't say that lightly. I wasn't overly fond of the Captain's first feature, and my reaction to most of the Marvel Studios films has been mixed. With that in mind, coming out of the theater I have to say 'The Winter Soldier' isn't only a great superhero movie, a great standalone Marvel Studios film, but that Captain America: The Winter Soldier may even be better than The Avengers! At the start of the film Steve Rogers (AKA Captain America) is still acclimating to modern life after having been frozen since WWII, and is working under the orders of Nick Fury and SHIELD. Already having doubts about SHIELD's motives and methods Rogers suddenly finds himself at the center of a conflict festering at the heart of SHIELD and must fight alongside other agents to stop a villainous plot to establish a new world order. Along the way he'll have to face a dark figure which may be connected to his past and decide what freedom truly stands for. The Winter Soldier is arguably the smartest Marvel Studios film to date. While still providing the fantastical set-pieces, humor, and over the top action spectacles one would expect from a Marvel film The Winter Soldier's antagonist is grounded in real-world fears, and possibilities. For this reason I felt more invested in the film's action than any other Marvel film to date. While movies like The Avengers and the first Iron Man were fun superhero romps The Winter Soldier actually feels like it is addressing real-world concerns regarding government secrecy and drone warfare in a way which made me feel invested in the characters, and the stakes they were up against. The decision to make it an internal, spy-movie type struggle also quelled any questions like "Where the rest of The Avengers?!" While that constantly bothered me in Iron Man 3 and Thor 2 I never asked that during The Winter Soldier because the nature of the villain makes it believable that most of the film's events are covered up and kept from the other heroes' knowledge. Then there's Rogers himself who truly defines himself as a superhero in this film. In his first outing and The Avengers Captain America always seemed like a wet blanket, coming across as a giant flag draped Boy Scout. While he was likable enough he never warranted in-depth analysis. That all changes in The Winter Soldier. Here Rogers' reflects on his past, question his own values and whether or not he can uphold them in this cloak and dagger modern world. He is a fish out of water and he knows it. His commitment to remain true to the values that carried him through WWII becomes his character's greatest strength rather than holding his character back. Through clever writing, and tender character moments The Winter Soldier transformed Steve Rogers into quite possibly my favorite character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (sorry Tony Stark). What ultimately sets the Captain's new adventure apart from other Marvel Studios films is that The Winter Soldier is the first standalone Marvel movie since the original Iron Man I've felt actually stood proud on its own two feet. It features everything we know and love about this universe without feeling burdened by references other Marvel Studios films. While Iron Man 3 and Thor: The Dark World had me saying "Can't wait to see the next Avengers" The Winter Soldier had me leaving the theater saying: "I can't wait to see the next /Captain America/ movie!" For this reason I am giving my full recommendation for Captain America: The Winter Soldier

      Best of the Marvel Superhero Movies

      As someone that grew up in the 1960s reading the Silver Age Marvel supehero comic books, I'm still amazed to see these characters become very high grossing major motion pictures. Captain America along with Iron Man and Thor were my favorite Marvel comics characters. This is the second solo Captain America movie and takes place after the events in the Avengers movie. This film is different from the other Marvel character movies as the emphasis is less on the superhero aspect of Captain America and more on how he analyzes his new environment in a world that has changed while he was in suspended animation for 70 years. Steve Rogers is an honest, straightforward man and very much a member of the World War II generation. He carries his values into the modern world and finds himself a potential pawn of SHIELD, an organization that he doesn't fully trust. He quickly finds himself immersed in the Hydra takeover of SHIELD and doesn't know who to trust. He finally begins to trust the Black Widow and starts to build his own team of trusted individuals that includes former military veteran Sam Wilson. Sam is much like Steve Rogers and the two of them form an immediate bond. Sam brings his own abilities to the team in the form of his mechanical wings that allow him the power of flight. He becomes The Falcon and is the third member of the team that Steve now trusts to battle the Hydra infilitration of SHIELD. A complication of the plan to remove the poison of HYDRA from SHIELD is his encounter with the Winter Soldier. If you've read the comics, you know that the Winter Soldier is none other than Steve's old friend Bucky Barnes. In the first Cap movie, Bucky is Steve's best friend and is already in the Army when we meet him. After Steve undergoes the Super Soldier transformation and becomes Cap, he goes behind enemy lines to rescue Bucky from the Red Skull's stronghold. While a capative of the Skull, Bucky is injected with the Super Soldier serum and eventually becomes the mercenary known as the Winter Soldier. So, now Cap not only has to battle the HDRYA infiltration of SHIELD, but also the Winter Soldiier while attempting to break through the brainwashing of Bucky in order to get him to realize that he is Cap's best friend. There are many twists and turns in this movie and while this is a major part of the plot, there is no shortage of action and the character development is excellent. The pairing of Cap and the Black Widow develops both characters more than in the Avengers movie. There is also one scene early in the movie that provides closure with a major character in the first Cap movie. A nice touch in my opinion. The end of the movie features the typical post credit scenes. One involves Bucky and the other actually sets up two characters in this year's X-Men movie. Stan Lee's normal cameo is one of the funniest I've seen in any of the Marvel movies. This is a great movie and you won't be disappointed in it at all.

      Captain America 2 exceeded my expectations

      Captain America Winter Soldier completely caught me by surprise at how great of a movie it was. Now the first Captain America movie was good, I really enjoyed the origin story as well as the 1940's period feel with the whole N a z i, Hydra WW2 theme. But the follow-up movie was much better. The story/plot was great. Chris Evans was great yet again and he perfectly portrays what I think Captain America straight out of the comic would be. All the other actors and actresses were great, Robert Redford was perfect in his role, he's such a great actor and has such a commanding presence. ScarJo was absolutely perfect (Marvel needs to make a Black Widow spin-off movie), Samuel Jackson (unfortunately or fortunately depending on how you look at it) without any of his famous cussing or swearing was great, and how Anthony Mackie as Falcon was worked into the Marvel universe was perfect and didn't turn out cheesy at all (his white and red outfit in the comics can stay there). I give Captain America Winter Soldier a 10 out of 10. I don't have anything bad to say about this movie at all. Everything below is NOT necessary to read but gives background.... I grew up reading comic books and consider myself a comic buff of the 80's and 90's. I've watched every Marvel Phase 1 movie and now the start of the Marvel Phase 2 movies released so far (ie - GotG) . I think I've also watched every Marvel comic book movie not part of the Disney/Marvel universe including all the Spider-man, X-Men, Wolverine, Fantastic Four (even the FF movie that was unreleased), Daredevil, Ghost Rider, etc... I've also watched every DC comic book movie ever made since 1978, all the Batman movies starting with the original Michael Keaton Batman version, all the Christopher Reeve Superman movies and even that atrocity of a Green Lantern movie with Ryan Reynolds. In order of personal preference here's my top 10 live action comic book themed movie list: 1 - Avengers (What I've always wished for growing up as a kid to see in a movie, a mash-up of multiple comic book heroes together on the big screen) 2 - The Dark Knight (Christian Bale, Heath Ledger) 3 - Batman (Michael Keaton, Jack Nicholson) 4 - Ironman 5 - Guardians of the Galaxy 6 - Captain America Winter Soldier 7 - Superman II (my first comic book movie starring Christopher Reeve) 8 - The Crow (yes, based off a comic, a great movie and worthy of being on this list) 9 - Spider-Man 2 (Tobey Maguire) 10 - Batman Begins

      absolute blast

      Captain America: The Winter Soldier is an absolute blast and fans young and old will be delighted with how well it establishes Captain America as the hero we've always known him as. It is in my opinion the finest movie Marvel Studios has ever made(Iron Man being a very very close second), and also the darkest, and i mean dark. This is NOT the family friendly action film that the first Avengers and Iron Man movies were, more people die in this film than all the Rambo films combined, even the comedy people have become accustomed to seeing in a Marvel movie takes a backseat in this Espionage action flick. I applaud Marvel Studios for not compromising Captain America and the Winter Soldier's characters to give this movie a more family friendly feel. This was such a massive improvement from the first Cap movie whose focus was more about being the catalyst for The Avengers film than as a fully fleshed out Cap film. From the acting, to the action/special effects, and the story, this is everything that a Captain America movie should be, even the Apple customer service guy was awesome, and just try to keep your eyes from watering up when Cap visits an old friend from the past. Here we're shown the life of a man who is living a mentally and physically punishing existence, still trying to get a better understanding of the decade he's living in, all the while shouldering the responsibility of being a figurehead and an essential member of a global organization. From start to Finish the tension remains high as Cap and the others put their lives on the line to stop Hydra, and blood will be shed. This movie has raised the bar to a whole new level for Marvel and i can only hope we get another one like this, not only is this an excellent standalone film, but it also perfectly sets the stage for an even more interesting Avengers 2. So check this movie out and see the most bad-A 95-year-old the world has ever known, Cap's orders. Be sure to stay watching for the 2 after credits clips, you don't want to miss them

      Fun Movie That Looks Awesome On 3D TVs

      As of late, pretty much every Marvel movie has been loads of fun, and Captain America: The Winter Soldier definitely delivers. The action is phenomenal, and it looks especially good in 3D. The 3D isn't overbearing and it really comes through at the right moments. When it's less pronounced, everything looks like it would naturally, but not quite as flat as regular 2D viewing. The box includes the regular/2D bluray disc and Digital HD download, but there's no DVD copy, which is nice to have for situations in which you only have a DVD player and not a bluray player. My only other complaint is the lack of artwork on the discs: they're just flat, light, blue with the "BluRay" or "BluRay 3D" logos and the movie title... It felt kind of generic, like I had bought a bootleg. Other than those minor issues, the movie is great and loaded with intense action. With all the gunplay and fighting, I can't say this film is family friendly. Still, it doesn't have much foul language, and the only sëxual content is one of the female characters has a tight-fitting outfit, but it covers her whole body, and there is a shirtless scene of the Captain, but it isn't in a romantic setting... I guess with such attractive actors, it could give some people body image issues. I'd say the content is safe for older kids as long you don't take issue with pretty much nonstop superhero violence that isn't gory... Although one scene has some minimal blood from gunshot wounds that you see when doctors and nurses are trying to revive a dying character on a hospital bed. It's much more solemn than visceral, and nothing to be offended by. Overall, Captain America: The Winter Soldier is an excellent selection if you like superhero action flicks!

      Great Marvel Film!

      A huge step forward for the Marvel Universe! As much as I loved the original Captain America film, this one is even better. Chris Evan personifies this character so perfectly that I could not imagine any other actor up to the task of playing our noble Cap. I kept hearing about how this film is inspired by 70s era espionage thrillers and I can tell you it fits right in that genre with the best of them, only it adds a superhero, big budget feel to it. I don't believe it's a coincidence that Robert Redford, who starred in many of the films that this one pulls from, is placed in a very prominent role as Nic Fury's boss, Alexander Pierce. The action scenes are second to none in this. It was full of those stand up and cheer moments as the film held the audience in the palm of its hand. I can't go to far into anything without spoilers, so I will just say this sets up a very interesting road that will lead into Avengers 2. We get to know Black Widow better this time around and Scarlett Johansson has gotten very comfortable in the role of the deadly assassin. I love the way they bring the Winter Soldier into the mix. Whenever he shows up in the film, he's like a Terminator, tearing through everything in his path and making it a bad day for anyone on the side of good. His character arc, while a bit predictable, is very entertaining and give Captain America a great obstacle to overcome. It doesn't look like the well is running dry for Marvel anytime soon. They keep going deeper with this cinematic universe experiment that has paid off in spades. If you've enjoyed the ride they have taken you on thus far with all our heroes, you will undoubtedly have a ball with Captain America: The Winter Soldier!
