Wow… What a film, so much better that I was expecting due to captain America previously being one of my least favorite marvel films (though I will always have a soft spot for any marvel character). I learnt to appreciate the black widow a lot more in this movie as well after the avengers underused her terribly. The Falcon was an amazing addition to the film and the insight we were given into Nick Fury’s life was amazing. There were so many twists to this film I was sitting on the edge of the cinema seat for the whole duration just eager to see what will happen next. As usual, the humour was typically brilliant and typically marvel, bringing light to what was a very dark film. The Winter Soldier himself was a great villain and his real identity was astounding and pushed us to see a new side to the Captain that we hadn’t seen before. I loved the references to the other avengers that were casually thrown in, and it was great to get more insight into S.H.I.E.L.D and into H.Y.D.R.A.


“Natasha Romanoff: You do anything fun Saturday night?

Steve Rogers: Well, all the guys in my barbershop quartet are dead. So no, not really.”

“Sam Wilson: How do we tell the good guys from the bad guys?

Steve Rogers: If they’re shooting at you, they’re bad!”

“Steve Rogers: [on the Winter Soldier] He’s fast… strong… and has a metal arm.”
