Verdict: To build a better world sometimes means tearing the old one down. And that makes enemies.
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, DC, 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.
For Joe Johnston, the business was straightforward enough. His 2011 Captain America picture was the fifth juggernaut in the ongoing Marvel Avengers convoy, and took place almost entirely during the Second World War. In it, the Captain, Steve Rogers (Chris Evans), was a rippling pastiche of a military hero, who waged war in freedoms name against grim men in black trench coats Hydra, rather than the Nazis, although you suspect they shared a tailor and fought with a moral certitude that was supposed to strike us as charmingly dated.
Captain America (Evans) is an embodiment of a set of values - truth, honesty, courage and so on that were predominant during the '40s. He never loses sight of that in contemporary times, despite some good-natured ribbing from Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett) and war veteran Sam Wilson (Mackie), whom he befriends during a morning jog.
There were a lot of problems with Captain America: The First Avenger. It was way too jingoistic and far too silly to maintain its faade of seriousness. The visual effects too werent very interesting they were just merely adequate. The villain was a great actor playing an underdeveloped character. And the hero was only mildly more charismatic than the guy who played Thor. A lot has happened since that movie. The Avengers took the world by storm. Marvel is now a bigger, more confident company, and it shows in Captain Americ
"Captain America: The Winter Soldier" is a better-than-average Marvel superhero bash, intriguingly plotted and pretty clever in its speculations about 21st-century life for Steve Rogers, aka Captain America, the greatest of the Greatest Generation warriors, as he contends with contemporary American geopolitical ideals run amok.
Gone are the days when Captain America was an old-fashioned charmer, now his style is at par with Iron Man, no less.This amazing cinematic experience by Disney-Marvel is one of those superhero films that balances the super-heroism extremely well with an engaging plot.In his best shape about 70 years later, Rogers (Chris Evans) is a modern avatar as compared to the old-styled superhero that he's known to be. He is trying his best to adjust to life in modern-day Washington DC. He gets to flirt quite a bit with Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson), alias Black Widow who after a liplock asks him,"Was that your first kiss since 1945?"
