CAPTAIN AMERICA 2 - Movie Review

 Title: Captain America: The Winter Soldier
Running Time: 136 min
Directors: Anthony Russo, Joe Russo
Starring: Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson, Robert Redford, Anthonie Mackie, Cobie Smulders, Sebastian Stan

With "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" Marvel brings us yet another installment of their huge cinematic universe. Considering that Thor's second film was pretty good but not overwhelming, and that Cap had been our least favorite Avenger since he jumped on screen three years ago, expectation for this film weren't very high....And oh boy, were we wrong!
This movie has it all, including (and that is a first for a Marvel Studios Movie) an immense amount of realism. Addressing the issue of governmental surveillance and control it hits the zeitgeist in exactly the right spot, and is almost less of a superhero movie than it is a political spy-action-thriller. Chris Evans owns it as Cap and delivers not only the cleverly written dialogue, but also the very intense action sequences that are shot beautifully with some awesome stunt work. Next to him, S.H.I.E.L.D. (and with it Black Widow and Nick Fury) plays a key role in this movie, and without giving anything away: some really interesting things are going down!
Also Anthony Mackie debuts as the Falcon and convinces us that he'll be able to play on the same level with Iron Man, Hulk and Thor in the upcoming "Avengers: Age of Ultron". Suspenseful, Fun, Thrilling and with Marvels highest body count yet, this is a must-see for comic book and especially Marvel fans (not only because of the many little references and a kick ass mid credit scene).
"In Kevin Feige* I Trust!" and so i am extremely excited about 'Guardians Of The Galaxy' coming in August!

*for everyone who doesn't know: Kevin Feige is the President of Marvel studios and thus, in charge of their cinematic universe.
