Cinemascope: Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Cinemascope is a regular blog post where I will share with you movies and TV shows I think are worth watching.

Released in 2014.

Plot line: For Steve Rogers, awakening after decades of suspended animation involves more than catching up on pop culture; it also means that this old school idealist must face a world of subtler threats and difficult moral complexities. That comes clear when Director Nick Fury is killed by the mysterious assassin, the Winter Soldier, but not before warning Rogers that SHIELD has been subverted by its enemies. When Rogers acts on Fury's warning to trust no one there, he is branded as a traitor by the organization. Now a fugitive, Captain America must get to the bottom of this deadly mystery with the help of the Black Widow and his new friend, The Falcon. However, the battle will be costly for the Sentinel of Liberty, with Rogers finding enemies where he least expects them while learning that the Winter Soldier looks disturbingly familiar.

I've watched my share of dark movies this year, so this was a delightful change of pace. It is a fun movie - action packed with people with nice bods. And while the special effects are great, it also has a plot - what a novel idea! This is a sequel, and I have yet to watch the first one, but that did in no way diminish my enjoyment

You can see the trailer here. If you have yet to see it, this is a movie worth watching.
