Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Fun Rating:8 Stars (8 / 10)
Action:8 Stars (8 / 10)

Anyone that knows me, knows I LOVE comic book movies! Even though I am primarily a DC fan, Marvel puts out some great movies!

Captain America: The Winter Soldier is probably in my top 5 of the Marvel movies and in my top 10 of comic book movies. Maybe I will make a list in the near future. One of the main things I judge movies on is how much I enjoyed watching it. Let me just say, I really enjoyed watching this movie! Its non stop action from the beginning, and while some of the parts drag on a little bit, all in all its a fun movie to watch!

If you are watching Agents of Shield on ABC I hope you got to see this first because you will be a little lost at the end of Season 1 if you didn’t. Sam Jackson is getting a little old as Nick Fury (I don’t mean his age) and I think its time to go a different direction. The dynami c between Cap and The Winter Soldier could of been explored a little more but I have a feeling that we will get more in Cap 3. I didn’t really like the Falcon character, but again I’m not a huge Marvel fan so maybe I just didn’t know enough about him.

Chris Evans is GREAT as Captain America, definitely better than Johnny Storm! As usual Marvel does a great job with effects, I only wish these effects were around when I was younger, although there is something to be said for the practical effects of Star Wars!

So, watch Captain America: Winter Soldier, but you should probably watch Captain America: The First Avenger first!
