What is it about?
After the cataclysmic events in New York with The Avengers, Marvel’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” finds Steve Rogers, aka Captain America, living quietly in Washington, D.C. and trying to adjust to the modern world. But when a S.H.I.E.L.D. colleague comes under attack, Steve becomes embroiled in a web of intrigue that threatens to put the world at risk. Joining forces with the Black Widow, Captain America struggles to expose the ever-widening conspiracy while fighting off professional assassins sent to silence him at every turn. When the full scope of the villainous plot is revealed, Captain America and the Black Widow enlist the help of a new ally, the Falcon. However, they soon find themselves up against an unexpected and formidable enemy—the Winter Soldier.
What did I think?
Oh, my gosh! I loved this movie! It was a thrill-a-minute ride! Action, action, action.... and oh, the scenery! And I'm not talking about the trees! I loved the plot twists, I loved re-visiting old villians and meeting new ones! I was especially pleased that this storyline was wrapped up during this movie, but tantalizing clues were dropped about the next installment! The audience actually gasped when one clue was shown! (Helpful hint... stay through the credits!) Oh... have I mentioned the Falcon? What a great addition, and oh, those wings!
Thumbs up on Captain America - The Winter Soldier! It opens Nationwide on April 4th. I'll definitely be seeing this one again!
