Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier was an excellent follow-up to the first movie as well as an excellent piece in the puzzle to the Avengers. Scarlett Johansson (Natasha Romanova), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Furry) and Chris Evans (Steve Rogers/ Captain America) were all familiar faces from past movies and all played their roles marvelously, especially Evans and Johansson.
A new face was added to the movie and the addition of The Falcon (played by Anthony Mackie) was a perfect fit for the small squadron of soldiers led by Captain America.
Different from last movie, the sequel starts in present day, but of course there is more than enough problems for Captain America and company to deal with.
The band of heroes face off against the Winter Soldier, who is the bad guy equivalent of Captain America. With a heavily mechanical metal arm, the Winter Soldiers has one mission; to eliminate Captain America.
Between that and double crossing going on within S.H.I.E.L.D, the Captain has his hands full which makes for endless excitement. Throughout the movie I was kept guessing and did not expect so many turn of events, which was refreshing to see rather than only seeing endless fighting. It was a near-perfect mix and action and a compelling storyline.
If you’re a big fan of super heroes, America, and lots of ass-kicking, then this is a much see for you.
