As Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) struggles to embrace his role in the modern world, learns that the S.H.I.E.L.D. has been compromised and a Soviet assassin known as The Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) will stop at nothing to kill Captain America. To battle the new threats, he teams up with the Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Falcon (Anthony Mackie).


Captain America: The Winter Soldier is a brilliant, exciting and thrilling film, unarguably the best of Avengers franchise. The superheroes is what we pay for and what we want to see, but this film is beyond that: it is also a great political thriller.
The action scenes, ranging from fightings, shootings and  chasings, are great, natural, and almost real.
Chris Evans seems more natural and comfortable in Captain America's shoes that he was before. Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury gains importance. Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow, along with Anthony Mackie's Falcon, has a decisive role in the film, as she will help Captain America survive. Sebastian Stan's Winter Soldier is completely different that Bucky, but, at the end, proves to have a heart. Still great, Robert Redford's Alexander Pierce is the real villain.


Steve Rogers: You know me.
The Winter Soldier: No, I don't!
Steve Rogers: Bucky. you've known me your entire life. Your name is James Buchanan Barnes...
The Winter Soldier: SHUT UP!
Steve Rogers: I'm not gonna fight you. You're my friend.
The Winter Soldier: You're my mission! YOU ARE MY MISSION!
Steve Rogers: Then finish it. 'Cause I'm with you 'til the end of the line.
