Now the present day, Captain America aka Steve Rogers is living in today's society and living his life as a superhero the best he can, being alongside Nick Fury and Natasha, the Black Widow. After a successful ambush at a cargo holding hostages, Steven feels he can't work alongside people who have jobs of their own. That doesn't matter when Nick Fury gets attacked not just by the police but by an endlessly talented assassin that Captain America himself may know personally, forever known as The Winter Soldier. Nick is said to be dead after the ambush, and then he and Natasha go out for a little redemption after they become fugitives to MI5.
There really weren't any parts of the movie that I wanted to just skip over. Some of the action scenes take time, and Nick Fury's murder and mystery may not make much sense, but this is an action movie that's definitely worth spending two hours watching. There are countdowns for bombs and trackers where like Arthur Christmas, you can seriously feel the countdown coming closer to it's end. When Nick Fury is getting away from the police, he uses a bullet-proof car with an amazing computer that doesn't seem to know about the time limits. Scarlett Johannson might as well be the star of this movie too, being like Hit Girl's bigger sister, not caring about how she looks or acts and reluctant to trust her life to anyone, yet everyone likes her. The action does pause sometimes, but I'm not complaining, because I watched the movie feeling the action never stopped.
There are superhero movies that cost a fortune yet somehow focus too much on drama, and ones that are "Hell, yeah. Baby!" shoot-em-ups, which can be just as fun, if not occasionally better, and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, the brand new Marvel movie is all the good stuff about a superhero movie.
