Directors Anthony Russo, Joe Russo and Josh Whedon have teamed up to present an excellent theatrical experience in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
Ed Brubaker’s plot as developed by Writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, concerning the ease by which an over-dependence on security leads to totalitarianism, puts the action into today’s headlines and takes the film beyond the standard action genre.
Captain America (Chris Evans) is the perfect hero to root out the fascist enemies hidden within the Nation’s leaders and bring them to justice. But, this time, the stakes are even bigger as he must fight The Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan), who turns out to be someone dear to him.
With Scarlett Johansson as The Black Widow, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Anthony Mackie as Falcon and Robert Redford as Senator Pierce to back Evans, the fun is fast and furious.
Even those, who are not normally action fans should find this film a pleasure.
I give Captain America: The Winter Soldier a 4+ out of 5.
