‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ has an all-star cast of Chris Evans, Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansen and Robert Redford, just to name a few, all of whom gave stunning performances.
The story itself is a bit more complex than most comic book movies, as for much of it, there are three loosely related plots unfolding simultaneously, not even considering any subplots or back-stories.
There are repeated combat/action sequences, involving both astounding physical and firearms feats, which are engaging as well as memorable.
There are a few plot twists, some more telegraphed than others, but all acceptable; except for one incident that was taken from 'The Avengers' and 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' series, which felt cheap and used.
The biggest issue that I had was that very few conflicts were actually solved, while a plentiful bounty were presented. If you’re after closure, Captain America “2” is not for you. On the other hand, if you were a fan of ‘Lost’s’ seemingly endless array of revealed, yet abandoned situations, you might feel right at home here. A point most aptly stated by the not one, but two mid/post-credit teasers.
However, two show-stopping cameos are more than satisfying (for those associated with a certain school for Human Beings in Colorado, especially).
At the close, I would like to thank Epic Theaters for their providing a very amiable theater in which to view this (and other) movies and recommend that you go to one of their several local locations for your next cinematic experience.
