Captain America: The Winter Soldier Movie Review
Captain Eyecandy, as I affectionately refer to Steve Rogers played by Chris Evans, returns to the big screen April 4th as women all over rejoice. Yes moms, the universe has shined down upon you and it’s time to cash in your good karma for enduring another Muppets movie. So pack up the kids (and a bib for yourself- hottie alert) because you will want to see this one on the biggest screen they’ve got!
I can hear the parental conversations across America now:
Husband: Dear, I was thinking about taking little Johnny to see Captain America: The Winter Soldier this weekend.
Wife: No, that’s okay dear. You go play golf with Tom; I’ll take Johnny.
Husband: Are you sure, dear? You took him to see last two children’s movies.
Wife: Oh, I’m sure! I got this one. You just have a good time golfing, dear!
All joking aside, I really enjoyed Captain America: The Winter Soldier. This is an action-packed ride from start to finish and there is a fair amount of violence included. However, amongst the obsessive use of guns, the movie was not too gory or crude, which is good for the younger viewers…and babies like me. Personally, I don’t enjoy too many action films because of the bloody violence, but I was not uncomfortable during the fight scenes in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
Of course it’s a Captain America film so expect to take the high moral ground at every turn. You will also get some chuckles and fun Marvel character references along the way. I’m not about to spoil any surprises but as far as the main plot, I’m sure you can work out the endgame fairly easily. That’s not to say the movie is lacking any twist – there are some good ones!
MOVIES or DVD?
Order extra butter and a large drink! Make sure you see this one in the movie theater. And seriously ladies, pack that bib; you’re going need it will all the eyecandy packed into this one.
