CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER
Director: Anthony Russo, Joe Russo
Release date: 26 March 2014 (UK)
Well, wasn’t this as much fun as a barrel of superhero costumed, extremely agile monkeys! I used the word “agile” here because man, this dude can move. I could watch his running around, crashing through things, fighting and handling that shield for three hours straight and not get bored.
Bravo, Chris, but an extremely loud bravo to the stunts and their coordinator. That is some beautiful use of the human body and its abilities.
Plot-wise this isn’t the most surprising movie, but if you’ve enjoyed any of the Avengers franchise flicks, you won’t be disappointed. Chris Evans is Captain America, Scarlett Johansson is one of my favourite action chicks of all times and Samuel L. Jackson is.. well, always and forever: simply irreplaceable.
Bonus points for a cutiepatootie Winter Soldier Sebastian Stan. No baddie should be allowed to be so squishable.
A very happy surprise: (Don’t click the following IMDb link if you don’t want any cast spoilers) The short appearance of that one dude from that one amazing show. You’ll see.*nose tap*
