“Captain America: The Winter Soldier” is a must see movie! I knew I was in for a good time when in an early scene Steve Rogers says he has been reading the internet and catching up and he has a “to do” list which includes seeing “Rocky” and “Star Wars”! This film features an action-packed journey along with humor, interesting villains, and a Stan Lee cameo. Captain America also faces his most difficult opponent so far, the Winter Soldier who turns out to be a bit of a surprise to Steve.
An example of the humor occurs when a car has been riddled with bullets and has endured several collisions and a character asks if it is still functional. “The air conditioning is still working!” replies another character. There are a few surprises too including something that happens to Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and, as mentioned, who the Winter Solder is. This action-packed movie is a fun ride! We are pleased to award it our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal for ages twelve plus. It does have a lot of comic book, fantasy-style violence but there were several kids at the screening I attended who seemed to enjoy the movie and were not frightened or alarmed. Seeing “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” is a fun way to spend two hours!
