Besides of Spider-Man, which I read as a kid, everything I know about superheroes I’ve learned from their movies. My problem with many of them is that they only preach to the choir, operating under the assumption that everyone in the audience knows all the hymns. Screenwriters simply do a roll call of characters and events while letting fans fill in all the blanks. Sometimes the onscreen information is so sparse that the studio should pay you for doing all the work. With that said, Captain America The Winter Soldier full movie is a very good online movie, the rare film in this genre that serves as both entry point and continuation.
In Captain America The Winter Soldier full movie, our villain is Alexander Pierce (Robert Redford), a big boss at S.H.I.E.L.D. Until half of the movie, that’s revealed, most of the audiences don’t see it coming. Pierce is working on a project with Fury, known as ‘Minority Report’, allowing to zap millions of potential and actual threats with the push of a button. Of course, that project falls into the evil organization Hydra thanks to Pierce and his fellows. Redford clearly relishes his villainy, but he makes the expert decision to underplay it even while shooting people in cold blood.
Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) is framed to be behind S.H.I.E.L.D. being compromised, and Pierce sends out an amazing amount of firepower to kill him. The most impressive weapon – The Winter Soldier, a Russian assassin with a metal arm – show up in the chase to finish Fury. That assassin is intensity matched only by another of his targets, Captain America (Chris Evans). Avoid the IMDB if you don’t want to know who The Winter Soldier is, but I expect you know already. I won’t tell you anything except that the final showdown between hero and assassin is rife with a refreshing amount of fraternity and sacrifice.
Captain America The Winter Soldier full movie introduces Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie), a.k.a The Falcon, by making fun of him. Steve Rogers jogs his laps so quickly that he keeps passing Sam before he can complete one of his. “To your left!” Rogers keeps yelling as he passes by, much to Wilson’s bemused annoyance. When the two officially meet, Sam and Steve play the short scene in a manner that immediately suggests the start of a beautiful friendship. Their chemistry allows us a more personal investment in their action sequences, some of which I’m almost ashamed to admit had me worried for the good guys.
There is a scene of Sam, Steve and Scarlett getting quiet that strike me the most with the way they interact at each other. There’s a genuine emotional shorthand at work. Nick Fury also has a good rapport with Evans, whose “aw shucks” boyishness is a perfect fit for a guy named “Captain America” in MCU, Jackson does more with a line reading than some of his lines deserve.
During its 136 minutes, Captain America The Winter Soldier full movie unleashes a lot of “intense sequences of violence, gunplay and action”. Every bad guy in the free movie online shows up with a weapon that fires a gazillion rounds of ammo, but none of them is as accurate as beautiful Black Widow with only a pistol.
Screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely keep the plot streamlined and the verbal interplay brisk. They find not only a great cameo for Stan Lee but also work the gag as an excuse for the superhero equivalent of a throwback jersey.
Of all the Avengers characters, Captain America is probably my favorite. Captain America seems closest, at least in these movies, to a character whose human alter-ego doesn’t seem canned and set in stone. There’s a vulnerability to Steve Rogers; he has growth potential, both as a man and a hero.
In 2018, Avengers infinity war will be revealed. But you can watch some funny fanmade trailer here: https://youtu.be/JvuWtBg2Gec
