Captain America: The Winter Soldier

This week's movie rental was Captain America: The Winter Soldier ...

a 2014 American superhero film featuring the Marvel Comics character Captain America, produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures. It is the sequel to 2011's Captain America: The First Avenger and the ninth installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). The film was directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, with a screenplay by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, who had also worked in The First Avenger. It stars Chris Evans as Captain America, leading an ensemble cast that includes Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Cobie Smulders, Frank Grillo, Emily VanCamp, Hayley Atwell, Robert Redford, and Samuel L. Jackson. In the film, Captain America, the Black Widow, and Falcon join forces to uncover a conspiracy within S.H.I.E.L.D. while facing a mysterious assassin known as the Winter Soldier.

I read a lot of Marvel comics when I was a kid, and though Thor and Conan the Barbarian were my favorite comics, the movie version of Captain America has been my favorite character - Steve Rogers (Captain America) is such a kind, humble, brave, and idealistic person. An example from the film: here Nick Fury shows him Project Insight, a plan to target and kill thousands of potential terrorists before they have a chance to act (shades of Minority Report!). Steve's response is less than enthusiastic ...

See? Idealistic :) From Mother Jones ... "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" Is About Obama's Terror-Suspect Kill List, Say the Film's Directors.

The bad guy (or one of them) in the movie is an actor who plays the Mad Hatter in Once Upon a Time. Here he is as the Winter Soldier ...

And as the Hatter ...

Here's a review of the film from The Boston Globe ... Things get darker for ‘Captain America

And here's a trailer ...
