Captain America:The Winter Soldier movie review

Captain America: The Winter Soldier is a 2014 superhero political thriller. It is directed by the Russo Brothers.It stars Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L Jackson and Robert Redford.
There is a mole inside S.H.E.I.L.D and its up to Captain America and Black Widow to find out who it is. As long as they don't get killed by an assassin called the Winter Soldier.

This movie is really well written, with fantastic action sequences. In the action scenes, Captain America uses his shield for more than just defence. Nick Fury and Black Widow get a lot more screen time here than in past movies. Anthony Mackie also does a great job as Sam Wilson, especially the opening scene when Sam Wilson and Steve Rogers first meet. There is great chemistry between Chris Evans and Anthony Mackie, which makes their characters friendship / bromance feel more authentic. The political thriller aspects of the movie, which help make it stand out from other superhero movies.

With The NSA leaks, this movie feels very relevant. Even if you didn't like Captain America: The First Avenger, you should definitely watch this one, as it is a very intelligently written and well directed movie.

If you enjoy the Marvel movies you should definitely see this one.
