Movie Stars: Marvel steals silver screen

9 April 2014 By Ryan Permison, Columnist No Comments

The calendar says spring, but the summer movie season has already begun with Marvel at the forefront.

After the success of “The Avengers,” everyone is waiting to see what’s in store for the characters in Phase 2. That brings us to “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” with Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) trying to adjust to modern times.

To do so, he continues working with S.H.I.E.L.D, going on missions with Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) by his side.

He is trying to live a quiet life in Washington, D.C. still unsure of where he fits in. When a S.H.I.E.L.D agent is attacked, Steve is determined to find out how and why this happened.

With danger at every turn, shocking plot twists are revealed. Steve joins forces with a new ally, The Falcon (Anthony Mackie), to combat a new enemy known as the Winter Soldier.

If I say anything more, I may give away some potential spoilers. From start to finish, this was a different Marvel movie than what we have seen previously. It is an espionage thriller, with plenty of action that does not take anything away from the story.

This takes the Marvel Cinematic Universe in a powerful new direction.

Of all the solo films that we have seen, this is my favorite one because of the superb story and the action.

The new members to the cast all played their parts very well.

I hope to see them in future Marvel films. This will change everything when “Avengers: Age of Ultron” comes out next summer. Make sure to stay after the credits for two bonus scenes.

I give “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” 10 out of 10.
