Captain America: The Winter Soldier (3D)

A fun sequel to the original. The first movie paid homage to the old World War II movies and had a very arty look and feel. Captain American is back to life and working for SHIELD, helping the organization to fight off the bad guys. He is sent to liberate a ship that has apparently taken over by pirates, but it is not all that it seems; soon, Captain American is embroiled in a pretty sophisticated political espionage plot (a different kind of population purification than what he deal with in World War II). I really had a lot of fun at this movie. What was lacking in action in the first movie is completely made up here with its long, frequent, and thrilling action sequences; the movie is very funny in a lot of places (there is one place where he pulls out a checklist of all of the things he needs to do to catch up with what he missed during the decades he was frozen), the plot is complex, and the acting is good (Robert Redford’s presence recalls the old political thrillers he starred in the 70’s and 80’s). Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow is great and sassy as ever. Thumbs up for a fun, action packed movie – if you like the Marvel comics movies, this is a really, really good one! (2014; 3.5 Stars)
