The newest Marvel film, “Captain America and the Winter soldier” is differant from all the other movies in the franchise. It is a very modern movie, compared to the previous Captain America movies. Captain America’s costume has been significantly redesigned for the film, demonstrating a more bulky look. In the older versions Steve Rogers always wore a helmet, however, in this film he is shown wearing a facial mask instead.
The secondary characters featured in this film include Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan),Natasha Romanoff (Scarlet Johansson) and Nick Fury (Samuel L.Jackson), who runs S.H.I.E.L.D., the spy agency that overseas special operations for the United States. Anthony Mackie also plays the Falcon in this movie.
In many reviews, most stated that they liked “Captain America First Avenger” better, due to its motivational message. It begins in 1941 with a weak young man who transitions into becoming a strong superhero. He also becomes a WWII hero and is respected by by everyone, unlike at the beginning of the movie where he was continuously mocked. Many people enjoyed this film as it was amusing, adventurous and related to American history. In particular the audience really seem to like that the films do not dribble out slowly over time like the James Bond series or Spider Man movies.
Fans of action and gunplay will definitely enjoy this film. Captain America acts as a more relatable superhero than others, such as Batman. This film will not disappoint.
