Chris Evans did it again, portraying the First Avenger Captain America in what seemed like an effortless fashion. “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” was an entertaining, action-packed sequel to the first Captain America, “The First Avenger” that came out in 2011.
The first Captain America takes place during World War II, with a sickly Steve Rogers wanting to fight in the war but continuing to be rejected for military service. A scientist, Dr. Erskine recruits him for “Project Rebirth,” which turns his scrawny, weak body into the maximum human potential. After months of being used for propaganda and advertisement for the war, Rogers is finally sent on a mission to rescue a captured unit. That is when he truly becomes Captain America. The first movie endes with Rogers waking up in 2011.
“Captain America: Winter Soldier,” begins with Rogers trying to live a quiet life in Washington D.C. and adjust to the modern society he has woken up in, while working for Strategic Homeland, Intervention, Enforcement and Logistic Division (SHIELD), a government intelligence agency created for law enforcement.
As most movies based on Marvel comics, there are always surprises and twists throughout. There’s also a good amount of anecdotal humor.
The writers for Captain America did a fantastic job with the story line.
“Captain America: Winter Soldier” is roughly two and a half hours and I was glued to the screen the entire time I was watching it.
I may be a little biased, but this one is a must see for any and everyone.
After only being in theaters for a little over a week, it has already gained an 89 out of 100 review on websites such as Rotten Tomatoes and 10 out of 10 on cinemablend.com.
Many reviewers were impressed by how the film makers were able to tell the classic story of Captain America while also tying in some fears people have in our society today concerning privacy from the government, as that’s what SHIELD is trying to take away throughout the film.
“Captain America: Winter Solider” is a must see sequel to a classic Avenger and, though it’s a little pricier, if you see it in “X-D Real-D 3D”, it’ll feel like you’re inside the film, making it even better.
“Captain America: Winter Soldier” is rated PG-13 for intense sequences of violence, gunplay and action and is playing at Cinemark Towne Centre in Conway.
