Captain America: The Winter Soldier (3D IMAX) - 8.5/10|
A most unexpected pleasure. Marvel have taken The Avengers most boring character and have crafted what is arguable their finest film.
They've surrounded Cap with a bunch of excellent support characters and built up an intriguing plot which they all play a part. The villain of the film, the said Winter Soldier is a suitably powerful adversary and played very well.
It's well acted and it's great to see Robert Redford kick back and have some fun. If you like a bit of Scarlett Johansson, well she's in it a lot too and not just as eye candy.
The action scenes are extremely well done and are fast, tense and exciting. There's not that many blockbusters recently that get this right. So what if you can destroy an entire city in spectacular fashion? That gets dull quickly if not done right. It's good to see close quarters action scenes for a change.
Two scenes within the credits. The one in the middle is very interesting. The one at the end of the film is rather predictable. However, Marvel have nailed it for this film. A thoroughly enjoyable watch.
The Resident Evil films. I'm one of the reasons they keep making them.
