Steve Rogers, a.k.a. Captain America (Chris Evans) struggles to embrace his role in the modern world and with Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), he must battle a new threat from old history: the Soviet agent known as the Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan).
Now I love Superhero films. And I definitely like the Marvel films. And to be honest, I really prefer this sequel than the first – I think it’s because this superhero film is different to the other Marvel films: this one looks solely at S.H.I.E.L.D. and it doesn’t look at Captain America galavanting to loads of places. There still lots of cleverly-written humour, action and some good twists that every superhero film should have. The only one problem I have with the film, similar with any other superhero film, is that the villain isn’t in many scenes and/or doesn’t cause enough mayhem. In this case, it’s a bit of both really. Though something bad happens at the end of the film, that is mainly down to the good guys and how they decided to stop the villain.
I also liked the introduction to Agent 13 (Emily Van Camp) and I’m hoping because the camera kept looking at her loads (even though she didn’t say much or was in many scenes) that she and Sam Wilson, a.k.a. Falcon (Anthony Mackie) are in more Marvel films. Plus the whole dilemma that happens at S.H.I.E.L.D. is pretty cool.
But overall, if you love Marvel films and if you love superhero films then you’ll love this film. It’s funny, action-packed (with some very good fight scenes), clever, has great special effects and there is a great combination and chemistry between Chris Evans and Scarlett Johansson as Captain America and the Black Widow.
