Movie of the Week – Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Technically, it’s been the movie of the last few weeks… I first saw it the day it went out in Spain, March 28th, and immediately after I left the screening, I realized I needed to watch it again, and I spent the next weeks trying to get some free time to go to the movies… I didn’t manage to go, until I got to Portugal… Last Thursday, after spending a whole day with my nieces, and having dinner with friends, me and a friend of mine decided to go to the midnight screening of Cap2. I loved it even more than the first time (and I’m seriously considering convincing my nephew to watch it for the 3rd time…).

It’s very different from all the others superheroes movies, it’s less fantastical and more thriller. It’s a political espionage thriller done beautiful, with a lot of things you don’t see coming, combined with a lot of action and hand to hand combat. And WOW! Those combat scenes are amazingly done! Kudos to the choreographers, stunt doubles and off course, the amazing actors who did them.

The Winter Soldier gives a new dimension to all the people involved. The Cap is adapting and has taken the lead, so much so that Fury is not in control anymore. We learn more about Natasha and I wouldn’t be surprised if a Black Widow movie will pop up soon. Falcon is just the best, and in just half a movie grows into someone we just can’t see the Cap without. And with only a few lines, the Winter Soldier steals every scene he’s in. Natasha and Steve also develop an amazing kind of friendship, and I can’t wait to see Steve and Sharon go on some kind of date…

One of the best so far, which is saying something…
