Warning: The following post may contain spoilers. However I will try my best to review my thoughts without ruining your future experience. Please be warned.
Having never seen the first movie this was surprisingly easy to understand and follow on. The story begins from Captain America, Steve Rodgers, being unfrozen after (I think) 50 years. There had been a distress signal from one of S.H.I.E.L.D’s (a government defense department) ships due to a pirate hijack. So off goes Captain America to save the day. So if you’re a huge action fan this film already begins with scenes of amazing fight choreography. Although having jumped off a plane without a parachute, landed into the sea and being able to fight without restrain from water tension is baffling to me; can someone tell me if his suit is waterproof or has amazing drying abilities?
However the plot delves further and towards the end, all the pieces of the jigsaw start to fit together and the plot twists (as usual). The villians are Hydra, who developed the Winter Soldier – a powerful killing machine of a man with a robotic metal arm, and the hero’s, S.H.I.E.L.D – when I first heard the pirates talking about “making S.H.I.E.L.D pay”, I seriously thought they were calling Captain America Shield Lol. Anyway, Hydra had actually been slowly growing under the governments noses and had almost taken over the world until it was all revealed when some crucial players were started to be hunted down. There was a part of the film which made me jump, made me pray for the Captain and at one point I thought, “Nuuu! All is lost now ;-;”
