CAPTAIN AMERICA 2 – THE WINTER SOLDIER – this review may contain spoilers

Who is ready for some more incredible MARVEL MAGIC – as Joss Whedon, & Anthony and Joe Russo bring back “the blast from the past” Steve Rogers (a.k.a.  CAPTAIN AMERICA) to save our world from destruction like only he knows how with CAPTAIN AMERICA 2 – The Winter Soldier.

As Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) is still trying to adjust to his life back among the living – and 70+ years after the fact of being frozen alive – He is placed on special assignment by the Commander of S.H.I.E.L.D. Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) as it seems that someone has it in for Fury – and is hell bent on taking him out – but who?

Fury has also brought in the beautiful – yet deadly – Natasha Romanoff (a.k.a. THE BLACK WIDOW) to backup Rogers in their quest to find THE ENEMY.  Rogers also befriends fellow military ace and comrade, Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie).  Thank God, finally someone Rogers can relate to and who understands his military LIFESTYLE – it’s about damn time!

Craziness is at every turn, so Fury reaches out to Alexander Pierce (Robert Redford), his colleague from the past, to handle S.H.I.E.L.D. for the time being, till he can get a handle on who is out to get him, and how in the world they seem to know his every move?

Enter the fierce and indestructible demon known as the WINTER SOLDIER – part man, part machine, who is destined to remove FURY and his team from the face of this earth – literally – and does anyone know who is giving him commands as he has CAPTAIN AMERICA in his sights too?

Will Captain America and the Black Widow be able to save Fury from ultimate annihilation, or is his time up?  Will Rogers and Romanoff gain the assistance of another Superhero in their quest to save Fury and S.H.I.E.L.D. – like maybe a little Falcon might be needed this time around? And Is Alexander Pierce going to help save S.H.I.E.L.D., or is he the informant that has sent everything into chaos with the formation of a new counter intelligence agency known as HYDRA?

I give CAPTAIN AMERICA – THE WINTER SOLDIER an A+:  Marvel raises the bar yet again in the AVENGER series with this new Captain America adventure.  Besides the fact that Chris Evans is hot in his uniform – and he is –plus the fact that only CAPTAIN AMERICA takes on his foes with his bare hands, this film is more action, more back story, more of everything you want to see from Marvel, so settle in and get ready to be blown away!  Mark my words, this one is about to bring in more money than even the last IRON MAN 3 film, as Fury and his team, aren’t taking anything from anyone this time around.  And don’t forget to stay through the credits either, as there might be a lead in into the next film – but all you MARVEL fans already knew that! Right?
