Review Of: Captain America : The Winter Soldier [IMAX 3D]

Bookmark and Share

I've just watched "CAPTAIN AMERICA : THE WINTER SOLDIER" and I have got to say that this sequel is much more intense and interesting.

Directed By:Anthony Russo, Joe Russo

Starring: Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Cobie Smulders, Samuel L. Jackson

The second instalment of "Captain America", "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" picks up where "Marvel's The Avengers" leaves off, as Steve Rogers continues his affiliation with Nick Fury and S.H.I.E.L.D. and struggles to embrace his role in the modern world. Chris Evans will reprise his role as the titular Captain America while Anthony Mackie will star as the Falcon. Fans of the comic book series will know that Steve Rogers' best friend, James "Bucky" Barnes (Sebastian Stan) will rise to become the eponymous Winter Soldier.

Better than its predecessor. Intense plot. Great acting. 

Captain America : The Winter Soldier has a rather interesting story. I love how they made this sequel inter-related to the previous Captain America and also some references to The Avengers. This film really pushed Captain America and also touches on S.H.I.E.L.D's conspiracies. My advice, if you've forgotten at least the brief story of Captain America : The First Avenger, you should consider watching it again, although in this sequel they do bring back some idea of the previous. 

As I said, the story is interesting as it makes this film relate to its predecessor.

The plot is rather intense, both in action and emotional aspects. Although, since it's a Marvel superhero movie, you'd guess some of the minor "plot twists" this film really brings the deep past of Captain America & S.H.I.E.L.D. The story isn't too dark/deep like The Dark Knight but it's believable enough.

Acting was really good, with fair amount of screen time for each of the main cast. 

The visuals was really good, nothing too flashy or too mundane, maybe they were taking it more realistic and it was good. Although some scenes looked incredibly epic in IMAX. (Well, actually almost everything looks epic in IMAX hahah :P)

All in all, "CAPTAIN AMERICA : THE WINTER SOLDIER" is a great film for Marvel fans and followers of superhero films. As you all know, stay back for the after-credit scene! (:
