Building upon the growing empire that is Marvel Studio, the latest Captain America movie finally starts to show the promise seen in The Avengers movie.  Similar to the trend started by The Wolverine, The Winter Solider see it’s selfless less like a superhero movie and more like an old fashion spy film.  Taking cues from spy thrillers of the 70’s and 80’s we are treated to conspiracies and double crosses and even the Captain on the run.  This change in approach is refreshing especially after the years and years of Superheroes movies following the same old origin story approach.  Captain America: The Winter Solider is able to build on both the previous Captain America and Avenger movies to continue the development of the Captain’s fish out of time story while also furthering some interesting developments with SHIELD and the rest of the marvel universe.  In my opinion, the film far exceeds the first Captain America as well as the last two Thor films. After the cataclysmic events in … [Read more...]
