Wonderful. Grittier, darker, more compelling than ever. We last saw him in Captain America, the First Avenger, heroically crashing his plane into the sea. Captain America: The Winter Soldier picks up his story about 2 years after he awakens from his 70 year long hibernation. While working closely with Natasha Romanoff, aka Black Widow, for STRIKE, Captain America learns about a plot involving three helicarriers that are killing important individuals around the world. Sam Wilson, aka Falcon, makes an appearance in this movie, which is great to see. One of the fun aspects of Marvel is that characters never seem to really die. Evil Doctor Zola makes an appearance as does Bucky, Chris Rogers' best friend from childhood. The best part about Captain America: The Winter Soldier is the relationship between Rogers and Bucky- it's touching to watch them remember their friendship motto through thick and thin, as friends and as enemies. I believe the reason Marvel movies are so successful is that they always champion the Good, the Noble, the Humble and the Servant. It's never easy to achieve any of those traits in these movies, but it is always worth it. The makers of these Marvel movies combine deeply emotional relationships within an exciting plot and add mind blowing special effects to bring pure magic to the screen. I was blown away by this family friendly, awesome movie!
