Captain America: The Winter Soldier - 美國隊長2:酷寒戰士 - 美國隊長2 - 美國隊長2:冬日戰士

Captain America: The Winter Soldier (美國隊長2:酷寒戰士) is an 2014 film. The movie stars Chris Evans and Scarlett Johansson. The supporting cast include Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Cobie Smulders, Emily VanCamp, Hayley Atwell, Robert Redford, and Samuel L. Jackson. There's even a appearance by UFC legend Georges St-Pierre as Batroc. The normal Marvel cameo from Stan Lee is also there. This is a sequel to Captain America: The First Avenger. Very much like Iron Man 3 and Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The Winter Soldier is more sequel to the Avengers movie.

Captain America starts after the events of the Avengers movie. Steve Rogers works out in DC and befriends Sam Wilson, a former paramilitary trooper working at the VA helping veterans get back on their feet. When sent on a hostage rescue mission, we find out something a bit sinister is in the air when Nick Fury is attacked and killed. When Captain America is questioned, the ranking SHIELD agent Alexander Pierce decides Rogers is not telling the truth and goes after him. With some help from the Black Widow, they track a lead to a military base where they find out the Hydra has been masterminding a global takeover. On the run again, they enlist the help of Sam Wilson who's now turned into the Falcon via a high tech exoskeleton. The Winter Solider is the muscle for Hydra and dukes it out with Captain America on a few occasions. When they find out that SHIELD is being use, they set out to stop them, but now with the help of Maria Hill.

Whew! That was a mouthful and that's not even much of the movie. There was so much action! Car chase, helicarrier fight, bombings, etc. Wow, there were still moments, but not much. The continuation of the Hydra story from Captain America: The First Avenger was all over the place. Once Zola got involved, the storyline totally opened up and the mastermind was revealed. It was a great ride. Steve Rogers is man that does the right thing, but the 1930s/1940s and the 2010s are very different eras. The introduction of new comics heros in The Falcon and Sharon Carter was very welcomed. The two easter eggs also make the anticipation for Avengers 2 all the more feverish.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe just got a lot bigger with this movie and its Easter egg.

If you're a Marvel fan, comic fanboy, Cap lover, Avengers groupie, you MUST watch this movie. Do it, don't hesitate.
