Get Ready For "Captain America:The Winter Soldier"

If you haven’t seen “Captain America:  The Winter Soldier” yet, here’s a piece of advice-get everything you need from the snack bar before the movie starts because you will not be leaving your seat.  

Then hold onto your popcorn and get ready for two hours of nonstop, sit on the edge of your seat fast paced, action and fun at its best. This latest edition in the Captain America and Avenger movie series are what Walt Disney Motion Picture Studios and Marvel does best-combines the excitement and rip roaring adventure of a fast paced action movie with the brilliant comedy and delivery of some of the best one liners around and you have yourself what movies are supposed to be all about-an escape from reality. Based on the ever-popular Marvel comic book series, first published in 1941, Marvel’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” is produced by Kevin Feige, p.g.a. directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, from a screenplay by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely, and stars Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Cobie Smulders, Frank Grillo, Emily VanCamp and Hayley Atwell, with Robert Redford as Alexander Pierce and Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury. 

“Captain America :The Winter Soldier” is the second installment in the Captain America franchise. Without giving away too much of the plot, because the twists and turns and surprises are what makes this movie a cut above the rest, 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 Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widow, Captain America struggles to expose the ever- widening conspiracy while fighting off assailants 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. 

Just when you think you have it all figured out and you know who the bad guys are, you quickly find out that you don’t. Can anyone be trusted? Has Captain America really gone rogue? Does Robert Redford ever age? 

Here's A Clip from "Captain America: The Winter Soldier"

For me, the best part of this movie was the fact that it is great story telling and character driven-it has heart and it is that heart and soul that dictates the direction of the plot.  Most super hero movies have me leaving the theater feeling that I had a good time, but that they probably could have cut off 30 minutes and I would have been OK with that but not so this time. “Captain America: The Winter Solider” is the perfect blend of story telling, combined with just the right amount of incredible but not over powering action, all done in a way that helps to advance the plot. In other words it has something for everyone and it leaves you wanting more.  Make sure you stay until the very last credit has rolled for not one but two surprises.  Make sure you check out “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” this weekend and hold onto your seats. You’ll be sitting on the edge of them the entire time.
