Captain America: The Winter Soldier Review

Who can you trust?!

Captain America The Winter Soldier stars Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L Jackson, Sebastian Stan, Robert Redford, Anthony Mackie, Cobie Smulders, Frank Grillo and Emily VanCamp.

As Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) is adjusting to modern life and working for SHIELD, a new threat arises called “The Winter Soldier”. His identity is not known and as SHIELD is tracing him down, HYDRA returns and takes over SHIELD. With Nick Fury (Samuel L Jackson), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Captain targeted by the organisation for being traitors. Now with very little resources they must work out who they can trust. When Steve and Agent Romanoff look back at SHIELD’s origin they discover the plans of HYDRA now, will they be able to take stop them before they try to take over the world once again.

With Iron Man 3 proving unpopular with fans, Thor: The Dark World not being successful, it was down to Captain America to turn around Marvel’s Phase 2 and boy did they perform. With the Russo brothers directing, some people were a bit skeptical to start with because they had only really been known for smaller comedic TV shows and films, until they saw one of the best marvel trailers! The Winter Solder gave us a bit of a darker look into the marvel film and it really turned the universe from being a bright, cheerful universe to a darker more realistic world. The film is very much more a spy film, like Bond or Bourne, than a superhero film. Everyone puts in great performances and Chris Evans really grows as Captain America. I wasn’t a massive fan of the character going into this film but I really turned around after seeing it. The Winter Soldier is a really good, mysterious villain and I have very high hopes for his character moving forward in the Marvel universe. HYDRA taking over SHIELD was a great surprise and really changed the Marvel universe in a big way. There is also an amazing cameo from Danny Pudi (abed) for fans of Community.

Overall, I rate Captain America: The Winter Soldier 8/10! The film really changed the MCU and really picked up Marvel films after Iron Man and Thor.
