Captain America: The Winter Soldier – Review

He’s the leader of Earths ‘mightiest band of heroes’ and an all round bad-ass that makes villains quake in their boots and the mere sight of the red, white, and blue – but even Captain America can have meet his match.

With the events of New York’s alien invasion fresh in his mind, and still adapting to a modern day world that makes no sense, Captain America (Chris Evans) is searching for his purpose in life, other than saving the world.

Having been awoken from a cryogenic sleep that last 70 years, the last thing Steve Rogers (Evans) expected was for his past to catch up with him. But when SHIELD Director Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) is murdered by a mysterious assassin known only as the Winter Soldier, Captain Americasoon discovers a past enemy hidden within S.H.I.E.L.D itself.

Having been awoken from a cryogenic sleep that last 70 years, the last thing Steve Rogers expected was for his past to catch up with him. But when S.H.I.E.L.D Director Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) is murdered by a mysterious assassin known only as the Winter Soldier, Captain America soon discovers a past enemy hidden within S.H.I.E.L.D itself.

With no-one to trust, Captain America soon finds himself labelled a fugitive by the agency he’s come to trust, and along with Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and new ally The Falon (Anthony Mackie), he must uncover the conspiracy before a new state-of-the-art weapon, capable of killing millions, is released.

This sequel to 2011′s Captain America: The First Avenger, marks the eighth film in Marvel’s multi-billion dollar franchise, that has proved unbeatable at the world-wide box-office, having already generated over $6.5 billion to date.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier is the perfect mix of story, suspense, and all-out action, that provides the perfect antidote to our post Avengers blues.
