Movie Review: Captain America: The Winter Soldier - The Best Marvel Film to Date!
Steve is still trying to fit into the modern world where clearly his sense of duty and what is happening today are at odds with one another. Where in the past the enemy was clear, today that answer is hazy. Rogers believes that criminals should be punished after the crime has been committed but Fury believes that the world cannot wait that long. Fury shows Steve Project Insight, a set of HeliBattleships, set on preemptive strikes.
I am doing my best to stop from including spoilers but I will say that there are so many twists and turns here. There are even some great references to Marvel characters that we are already familiar with and maybe one that will become a new Marvel Cinematic Universe hero. But this film goes back to the very origins of S.H.I.E.L.D. and tying together bits and pieces from every Marvel film thus far. Plus, the two post-credit scenes bring us to next year's Avengers 2 as well as the next Captain America movie.
Everything here needs to be discovered by watching and to not let anyone, including myself, spoil it for you. From the cameos to the all of the twists and turns throughout the film there is not one bit of slowdown. This is the nail biting, emotional, edge of your seat movie you have been waiting for. This is the summer movie that you want but rarely get. This is the best Marvel film to date!
