Wow! That is the first word that comes to mind. Just wow. This movie was amazing! I believe this movie rivals The Avengers as the best Marvel Studios movie to date! Even if you do not like comic books, it is just a solid, well-paced, non stop action ride the whole way through. Captain America: The Winter Soldier was just a runaway train of high-flying action! The Cap' held it down and repeatedly just kicked so much ass it was hard to even recall all the supreme ass kicking that went on!
Chris Evans does it again. Seriously, he owns the screen. Evans is just the absolute perfect choice for Steven Rogers. His facial acting and tone just really capture that sort of decaying innocence that is a World War II hero trying to cope with this new interconnected world of global espionage. Even the icy cold Scarlett Johansson managed to dig deep into her very shallow pot of acting prowess and managed to get some depth out of her stone cold ex-soviet assassin. Barely.
Lastly, I would like to touch on the action itself. That extended trailer we all saw during Thor: The Dark World where the Cap beats up 10 expertly trained badasses in a 10ft square space, really set the tone of action for the entire movie. Chris Evans must have done some intense training for this movie because he uses all manner of martial arts in the film. There is some, perhaps too much, of the dreaded shaky-cam in this movie but despite that Evans really almost pulls off a martial arts star role. One of the best action movie in the past few years! This is definitely a must see! America!!!
Editor's note (from Crystal, co-host of GG): Be sure to pay attention to all the little details thrown in, too! Marvel always packs in fan service for their long time readers and hidden clues via the background and sets, so make sure to see what they stuck in this time. No spoilers here, just go check out the movie already!
