Fan­tasy ac­tion

Cap­tain Amer­ica (aka Steve Rogers) is in a tight spot. His SHIELD boss Nick Fury is dead and evil or­gan­i­sa­tion Hy­dra has se­cretly been plot­ting to take over. How are they do­ing that? They’ve had spies within SHIELD’s ranks since its in­cep­tion and the mil­i­tary pro­gramme In­Sight is go­ing to launch three gi­ant war­ships into the sky that will pre­dict future en­e­mies and kill them. So what’s a guy to do? Team up with sul­try-but-deadly Agent Ro­manoff and an ex-mil­i­tary man who’s wear­ing a winged suit as they take on Hy­dra’s top dog. There’s only one prob­lem: the bad guy’s got a vi­cious as­sas­sin known as The Win­ter Sol­dier and the fact that he’s able to dish out a se­ri­ous beat­ing on the Cap­tain isn’t Steve’s big­gest prob­lem – The Win­ter Sol­dier is some­one close to him! Why it’s hot: for starters, it’s a Marvel movie and what­ever they touch turns to plat­inum. Chris Evans is epic as Steve/Cap­tain, Sa­muel L Jack­son is bad-ass in his role as Nick Fury and Scar­lett Jo­hans­son is sexy and tough play­ing Natasha Ro­manoff again. Spe­cial shout-out goes to Robert Red­ford for be­ing a sneaky dou­ble-cross­ing bad guy – he plays it so well. The ac­tion is amaz­ing and bet­ters that of the 2011 first Cap­tain Amer­ica movie, and the fight scenes between the Cap­tain and The Win­ter Sol­dier are ridicu­lously cool. If you like your su­per­hero ac­tion flicks, this is a def­i­nite must for your col­lec­tion. Plus, there’s go­ing to be a third one…
