Captain America: The Winter Soldier - Movie Review

Verdict: “Undeniably the best Marvel stand alone movie till date. An exhilarating action thriller”

What I revered the most about this movie was that its uncommon and novel when compared to every other superhero movie. Constructing a new genre in the superhero movie franchise, Captain America: TWS narrates it's own story in a contemporary format where we get to experience spectacular action sequences, relentless political drama and a much needed gratifying humour that we all enjoy.

Slightly unequipped with the progressive environment, Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) is been designated for a mission by Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) to rescue a ship that belongs to S.H.E.L.D and he's been convoyed by Agent Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johanson).

Complying with Fury's commands, Agent Romanoff extracts some secret information from the ship which doesn't function when Fury tries to unlock with his directives eventually. Fury later comprehends that he's been targeted by a mysterious organization and entreats Rogers to discover the influence behind it.

As I listed out earlier, this movie didn't trail with the generic superhero formula, it took it's own directions and triumphed over in every single aspect with it's engaging heroic act. The suspenseful political drama between these two enormous forces was riveting and it's nearly unpredictable in every single string.

Compared to the previous Marvel stand alone movies, I desperately missed the other characters existence and significance in the movie and to my surprise in this movie, I'm overwhelmed with the amount of time they've granted for every single character. Every single lead in the movie had their moment to cherish and emphasize their intent.

Making the most of their given screen time, the performances were remarkable. I can't elect an astounding one but overall as a prevailing team they all done a great job equally.

Directors Anthony and Joe Russo absolutely had no experience in directing action, they've only had a considerable amount of experience in TV programs and they're phenomenal with their work in this movie. I can undeniably admit that the action sequences were top notch, amazingly shot as we can delightfully enjoy them completely because of it's indisputable display.

As per the references part, they were many that link up for the Avengers and Cap3 sequels and I deeply recommend you to check out the first part before, for refreshing your thoughts. Also the first end credits scene was vital and I suggest you to sit back and keep an eye on it.

With that being said, Captain America 2 is the best Marvel movie next to The Avengers, I'm completely surprised with every single aspect of the movie. The novelty that Russos brought to the big screen was astonishing which will entertain every single viewer as I call it a film fiesta.

My Rating - 4/5
Grade - A (The best one around!)
