Winter Soldier is everything you need in a movie: the fun, the suspense, the thrill, the magical fights and falls, the lines will all stand out in your mind, as the directors Anthony & Joe Russo put together scenes that will be hard to forget.
What an awesome way to prep us for Captain America: Civil War (2016). Another thing to look forward to is Robert Redford, I enjoyed his acting and he delivered such a performance that will make you the viewer respect this vintage actor. (If you have no idea who Robert Redford is, I advise you check him out on Wikipedia.)
What a memorable movie and the effects were good enough to receive an Academy Award nomination for Best Visual Effects.

The reason I took my time in watching this movie is the bad after taste I had from seeing Thor: The Dark World (2013). After seeing the issue Marvel had in doing a comeback for Thor, I felt Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) will be crap, until a friend convinced me otherwise. This also kept me from seeing Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015), but not Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)which happened to be awesome.

The moment I was done watching this awesome flick, I was geared towards seeing Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) so as to be in par with what is happening in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and make sure I understand what will be happening when the Civil War kicks off in 2016.

The movie starts with Captain America (Chris Evans) and his team carryout a successful mission, which the aftermath led to the introduction of the Winter Soldier and the assassination of Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson).

The Winter Soldier happens to be an old personal friend of Captain America way back during World War II, until he was captured and experimented on by Hydra.

Yep, Hydra is back and this time they have been working in the shadows and hiding in plain sight, right there in Shield. Growing and plotting a world takeover bid, which includes taking control of Shield. They kicked that off by sending The Winter Soldier to kill Nick Fury and turned Captain America and Black Widow into a fugitive wanted by the law.

Captain America and Black Widow sought help from Caps new friend Sam Wilson “Falcon.” Together the three of them backed up with a surprise visit from the land of the dead have to get into Shield HQ and take down Hydra from the inside.

The film was a critical and commercial success grossing over $714 million from a $170 million budget and you need to see this movie.
