The story goes; after the cataclysmic events in New York with The Avengers, Marvel’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” finds Steve Rogers, aka Captain America, living quietly in Washington, D.C. and trying to adjust to the modern world.But when a S.H.I.E.L.D. colleague comes under attack, Steve becomes embroiled in a web of intrigue that threatens to put the world at risk.
Joining forces with the Black Widow, Captain America struggles to expose the ever-widening conspiracy while fighting off professional assassins sent to silence him at every turn.
When the full scope of the villainous plot is revealed, Captain America and the Black Widow enlist the help of a new ally, the Falcon.
However, they soon find themselves up against an unexpected and formidable enemy, the Winter Soldier.
This is the second in the Captain America series but don’t be too worried if you haven’t seen the first one. The history of how we got to the present day is filled in for you as you go.
The film has a message yet it mostly serves as scaffolding for a visually spectacular action movie. Yes Captain America and his cohorts are chasing down the baddies and the baddies are doing their best to destroy anyone who stands in the way of implementing their grant yet warped scheme.
It’s not a movie to be taken to seriously but it’s good solid entertainment. There’s plenty of stunts, explosions, bullets, fights, implausible escapes and one line humour thrown in along the way.
Stay through the credits at the end for teasers as to what could be in store for Captain America a third movie.
