CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER
Captain America: The Winter Soldier is a wonderful movie, not simply a great superhero movie. Part political potboiler, part thriller, the movie only suffers form a bit of silliness with a time lock plot in the third act that draws things out a bit unnecessarily.
That, however, is a small complaint and the action and pathos of the film are complex and compelling.
All of this happens while a massive amount of world building is taken care of as well.
And it has Robert Redford in a tremendous role as the morally ambiguous Alexander Pierce.
Any list of the top five Marvel movies must include Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
When I reviewed Captain America: The Winter Soldier when it was released, I may actually have been too harsh only giving it FOUR AND A HALF SMITHSONIAN EXHIBITS out of a possible FIVE. Upon further review, it may deserve five.
- Sam Wilson, The Falcon
- Bucky Barnes reintroduced as The Winter Soldier
- Brock Rumlow, Crossbones
- Sharon Carter, Agent 13
CONNECTION(S) TO INFINITY WAR:
- The destruction of SHIELD will leave the world all the more vulnerable to invasion by the forces of Thanos.
- Stephen Strange is mentioned by Hydra agent Jasper Sitwell. He is, of course, Doctor Strange, and he was featured in Avengers Infinity War.
- The post credit sequence features Baron Strucker (a Hydra operative) and future Avengers Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver. The Scarlet Witch, in particular, featured in Captain America: Civil War and was on Avenger on the run in Infinity War.
- Bucky is a MAJOR player in Captain America: Civil War and has shown up in… other places in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as well. He was in the post credit sequence of Black Panther and featured – a bit – in Infinity War.
