 This time we got a very entertaining action movie about America'​s favorite superhero: ''​Captain America'',​ and his fight against Hydra, a somewhat esoteric terrorist organization with the unmoving mission to take over the world, and impose a New Order. This time we got a very entertaining action movie about America'​s favorite superhero: ''​Captain America'',​ and his fight against Hydra, a somewhat esoteric terrorist organization with the unmoving mission to take over the world, and impose a New Order.

 ''​Captain America: The Winter Soldier''​ unveils the ethos of our own time, forcing us to think, whether ​ we live in fact in a more free society, or we just think we are, being thus part of a rather cynical system. ''​Captain America: The Winter Soldier''​ unveils the ethos of our own time, forcing us to think, whether ​ we live in fact in a more free society, or we just think we are, being thus part of a rather cynical system.

 The best acting in the movie was without a doubt Samuel L. Jackson (''​Pulp Fiction'',​ ''​Django Unchained''​) as Nick Fury, and Robert Redford (''​All the President'​s Men'',​ ''​Out of Africa''​) as Alex Pierce. ​ Samuel Jackson interprets a weary Nick Fury, trying to reveal the truth behind ''​Project Insight''​. ​ He makes great chemistry with almost any actor on screen, demonstrating thus his brilliant talent, and even rescuing some scenes from oblivion, in which some of his co-stars don't seem so committed like he is.  On the other hand, Robert Redford gives a mastery class in acting as he always does.  I don't want to spoil you his character, so I won't tell you much of what he does, or he is, but I'm only going to tell you that watching him interacting with Samuel L. Jackson is a bliss. The best acting in the movie was without a doubt Samuel L.

-It is worth mentioning some supporting roles from Emily Van Camp (''​Everwood'',​ ''​Revenge''​),​ and Frank Grillo (''​Minority Report'',''​Zero Dark Thirty''​) as S.H.I.E.L.D. operatives, and Anthony Mackie (''​Million Dollar Baby'',​ ''​8 Mile''​) as Falcon, and Captain America'​s friend. ​ There are some interesting cameos of Cobie Smulders (''​How I Met Your Mother'',​ ''​The Avengers''​),​ Hayley Atwell (''​The Duchess'',​ ''​All Is by My Side''​),​ and well... Stan Lee of course.+It is worth mentioning some supporting roles from Emily Van Camp (''​Everwood'',​ ''​Revenge''​),​ and Frank Grillo (''​Minority Report'',​ ''​Zero Dark Thirty''​) as S.H.I.E.L.D. operatives, and Anthony Mackie (''​Million Dollar Baby'',​ ''​8 Mile''​) as Falcon, and Captain America'​s friend. ​ There are some interesting cameos of Cobie Smulders (''​How I Met Your Mother'',​ ''​The Avengers''​),​ Hayley Atwell (''​The Duchess'',​ ''​All Is by My Side''​),​ and well...

 The music from Henry Jackman (''​Captain Phillips'',''​Wreck-It Ralph''​) works like a functional piece of action. ​ It is well performed, but is not the same as Alan Silvestri'​s work from the First Avenger. The whole score feels mostly like background music, so you probably won't notice it, but the good thing is it doesn'​t stay in the way of the movie. ​ However, I would have wished a more memorable score. The music from Henry Jackman (''​Captain Phillips'',''​Wreck-It Ralph''​) works like a functional piece of action. ​ It is well performed, but is not the same as Alan Silvestri'​s work from the First Avenger.

 This is a movie that will please fanatics and casual viewers for equal. ​ It has lots of action, good looking actors, good acting to some extent, although, not so solid as wished, and incredible special effects. ​ Captain America speaks not only to his fanboys, it expresses the anguishes of our time without being jingoistic despite his name. It's a really good movie stuffed with tons of subtle details for Marvel fans, without disappointing those, who just want to have a nice afternoon in cinema. ​ If you are going to watch ''​Captain America: The Winter Soldier'',​ I really recommend you to stay until the end of the whole movie credits, so you can see the two-ending scenes. This is a movie that will please fanatics and casual viewers for equal. ​ It has lots of action, good looking actors, good acting to some extent, although, not so solid as wished, and incredible special effects. ​ Captain America speaks not only to his fanboys, it expresses the anguishes of our time without being jingoistic despite his name.
