I have always been a long-standing fan of Marvel Comics, and I have watched every Marvel movie at least twice, and so I was excited for this to finally arrive in the cinemas. So, this is one of the Marvel movies that are part of ‘Phase 2’ (basically post-Avengers, until the sequel comes) and this has included (so far); Iron Man 3 and Thor: The Dark World…
Now I would say that Cap 2 is the best so far; it’s got brilliant action, a great soundtrack and a story that makes for a dark and compelling ride. I won’t give away spoilers, but this film involves more of Nick Fury and more of Natasha Romanov (AKA The Black Widow), working with Cap, but when things go wrong, Cap doesn’t know who to trust, so he is forced to stick with Natasha through this ordeal. We are also introduced to Sam Wilson (AKA The Falcon) as they go to him for some help, I do love how the characters work together on-screen (Cap and Falcon were always good friends in the comics), and so they buzz off each others energy and work as a small team. When we finally get to see the Winter Soldier as well, it just turns into a hell of a rush, filled with action and danger – a thrill to watch.
One of the only complaints I do have, however, is Scarlett Johansson; sometime she delivers one liners that just aren’t needed there, it’s almost as if she has these cool moments, but ruins them by saying something cheesy and pointless.
But other than that, I’m sold! Check this movie out if you love Marvel movies or just movies in general, they just keep coming out with hit after hit… and don’t forget to stay until after the credits too!View Movie Quotes
