After the cataclysmic events in New York with The Avengers, Marvel's "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" finds Steve Rogers, a.k.a. Captain America, living quietly in Washington, D.C. and trying to adjust to the modern world. But when a S.H.I.E.L.D. colleague comes under attack, Steve becomes embroiled in a web of intrigue that threatens to put the world at risk. Joining forces with the Black Widow, Captain America struggles to expose the ever-widening conspiracy while fighting off professional assassins sent to silence him at every turn. When the full scope of the villainous plot is revealed, Captain America and the Black Widow enlist the help of a new ally, the Falcon. However, they soon find themselves up against an unexpected and formidable enemy - the Winter Soldier.

Went to watch The Winter Soldier with Trois recently.

Personally, I felt that The Winter Soldier was way better than The First Avenger. The story plot and flow was pretty well-done. Certain scenes were slightly draggy but those intense action scenes cover those flaws. The fight stunts was raised to another level well.

There was an unexpected twist which bring this film to another level. Also, certain humor scenes which lighten the show a little. I thought that The First Avenger was direct and predictable without much climax. Unlike, The Winter Soldier which had smarter plot.

Ratings: 3.7/5
