Hero Blend #9: Captain America: The Winter Soldier Reviewed
Captain America: The Winter Soldier is amazing. Like, seriously amazing.
While we are still a little more than two weeks away from the release of Marvel Studios’ latest film, today marks the day that critics are finally allowed to publish their reviews, and I am getting my two cents in. Not only have I written a five-star review of the movie, I’ve also dedicated this week’s episode of Hero Blend to the new blockbuster, once again joined by my friend and ComingSoon/SuperHeroHype Associate Editor Silas Lesnick.
Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo and based on a script by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeeley, Captain America: The Winter Soldier picks up about a year after the events seen in Joss Whedon’s The Avengers and finds the titular hero (Chris Evans) still trying to find his way around the modern world. As a commitment to the service he was essentially born (and reborn) for, Cap enlists with S.H.I.E.L.D. as a field agent and travels around the world taking down threats alongside Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson). When the patriotic superhero becomes aware of the government organization’s latest plan for global security, however, he begins to question whether or not he is really fighting for the right side. And things only get worse when a ghost from his past returns in the form of the mysterious assassin known as The Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan). Anthony Mackie, Cobie Smulders, Frank Grillo, Emily VanCamp, Hayley Atwell, Robert Redford, and Samuel L. Jackson co-star in the film, which will be in theaters April 4th.
