Captain America: The Winter Soldier 
"Captain America: The Winter Soldier" by Yojimbo
3/4 stars

When Nick Fury discovers that S.H.I.E.L.D. has been infiltrated to the highest level by Hydra, he turns to the only man he can trust to re-establish the integrity of the organisation.

This sequel to the solid but unspectacular Captain America has a plot that concerns itself with far more contemporary themes and political issues, and strangely that is why it is so effective. Steve Rogers does his best Jason Bourne impersonation as he becomes the hunted outlaw outside of a political system that has become corrupted by fear-mongering, mass surveillance and authoritarian curbs on civil liberty in the name of “the war against terror”. Of course having just arrived in our time, Captain America’s idealism for the values forged during the wartime fight against fascism are still intact as he has not been subjected to the slow-boiling political climate that has led up to this point and as such, it works really, really well. The well choreographed action scenes have a kinetic weight that facilitate the plot which convey a genuine sense of jeopardy and the supporting cast – especially the ever-charismatic Samuel L. Jackson – compliment and counterpoint Chris Evans’ idealistic outlook very nicely indeed.

As such, The Winter Soldier is a clear cut above the usual superhero film and alongside Avengers Assemble is a contender for best Marvel film yet made.
