Guten Tag dudes and dudettes 😀
So people, hope all is well!! This week I’ve had the privilege to watch Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014). Yaaay!! After watching Captain America and The Avengers I wasn’t expecting a second Captain America however I must say this surprise was very pleasant as this movie has left a very good impression on me. I won’t reveal much about the film for those who haven’t watched it, but… there will definitely be a third film.
The director of the first Captain America Film was Joe Johnston. However Marvel Studios have chosen to let the Russo Brothers direct the second Captain America Movie and news has it that they will most likely be back to do the third one too. They have worked on many movies together before such as Community (2009) and You, Me and Dupree (2006).
Firstly, we all know that the star of Captain America, Steve Rogers, is the great Chris Evans, however he is also accompanied by Scarlett Johansson as ‘Natasha Romanoff’ otherwise known as the ‘Black Widow’, as well as Anthony Mackie as ‘Sam Wilson’ otherwise known as ‘Falcon’. We already know the story of Captain America and Black Widow, however the Falcon is a new character that is supposedly able to fly with the help of metal wings powered by an engine backpack of some sort. Although it seems unrealistic, I did find it very impressive, especially the shapes of the wing; Angel wings.
Wilson (Falcon) is introduced in Washington D.C. where he and Rogers are jogging, and Rogers is doing many more laps than Wilson and shouting ‘on your left!’ every time passing him. This annoys Wilson and leads them to convers. Rogers later realizes that Wilson runs a counseling group where he helps other from the military to overcome their sadness and despair. This surely leads to a beautiful friendship.
The basic story line is that S.H.I.E.L.D is compromised and Nick Fury (Samuel L Jackson) seems to be the cause of it. However, we later find out that it is in fact Alexander Pierce (Robert Redford) who is framing Fury as well as working as a double agent, leading the evil group called ‘Hydra’ within S.H.I.E.L.D.
Pierce puts all his firepower into killing Nick Fury, as well as his biggest and strongest weapon of all is ‘The Winter Soldier’; an ancient Russian assassin, with a steel arm, whom later becomes enemies with Captain America. But is there a deeper meaning to their relationship? Why does the Winter Soldier hesitate to kill the Captain?
Overall, I loved watching the film, and discovering its twists and turns. I would rate it 5/5 and am looking forward to the third movie. Well, I shall leave you will this for today, hope you all enjoyed reading my blog. Please share and like and give some feed back 😀
