I saw Captain America: Winter Soldier today. I have not seen a film at the movies in months so I was excited to have the theater experience.
Captain America was not one of my favorite comic book heroes and really the only reason I got into him at all was when he was with the Avengers.
I was not aware of the origin of this movie from what comic book but it was still some good storytelling. I did not feel like I needed a lot of backstory to follow the plot.
First of all Captain America is mad buff in this film! Black Widow kicks some major butt in this flick.
But what I was really excited about is that we have two Black heroes in a big summer blockbuster in Nicky Fury and Faclon played by the equally handsome and hunky Anthony Mackie! Dude is really turning into a new Hollywood powerhouse.
This film starts off with action and pretty much keeps a steady pace throughout the film!
Sidenote you know you are a true comic book film fanatic when you realize you are the only one left after all the credits have rolled to reveal what is basically part of the comic book film formula, the final scene.
I could not suppress a comic book squeal when it was revealed that finally one of my favorite Avenger's, the Scarlett Witch was finally introduced along with her fleet footed brother, Quicksilver!
This summer promises to be a jam packed film fest and Captain America: Winter Soldier is a great way to start the line up.
Go sit back and emjoy the ride!
