Captain America The Winter Soldier (Trailer #1) Review
I didn’t really have any thoughts on this film until now. I liked the first film but it wasn’t anything special and the sequel sounded interesting especially with that title (that’s right I read comics) Bucky! Gone to the dark side (sad face). But wow this trailer makes the film look great and I don’t really know that much more than I did before the trailer, which is good (few spoilers). The scope of the film looks pretty massive and after the Avengers that is really needed, whether this scale will help or hinder is too hard to tell but me like. Also listen out for that music because I think its part of the films score and its pretty good, its different than most of the marvel cinematic scores. Enjoy the review and please tell me your initial reactions to this new trailer.
“I thought the punishment usually came after the crime” – Politically charged words from Captain America!
My Score: A+
Release date: 26th March 2014
After the cataclysmic events in New York with The Avengers, Marvel’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” finds Steve Rogers, aka Captain America, living quietly in Washington, D.C. and trying to adjust to the modern world. But when a S.H.I.E.L.D. colleague comes under attack, Steve becomes embroiled in a web of intrigue that threatens to put the world at risk. Joining forces with the Black Widow, Captain America struggles to expose the ever-widening conspiracy while fighting off professional assassins sent to silence him at every turn. When the full scope of the villainous plot is revealed, Captain America and the Black Widow enlist the help of a new ally, the Falcon. However, they soon find themselves up against an unexpected and formidable enemy—the Winter Soldier.
What I liked
#8. “Well all the guys from my barbershop quartet are dead, so no not really”
Liking this little banter section, bit of a jokey feel which is nice. Tad morbid but I laughed my ass off mwahahaha. Also get some funny talk of dating in the office which is something I always think is funny in these top secret spy films which this essentially is. Nah am too nervous to date, but I’ll jump out this plane to fight some villains.
#7. “Is he wearing a parachute?”
Haha yes jump you super powered freak. Love the look and I think it’s very cool but from a practical stand point I have to mention how incredibly unlikely it would be for him not to die instantly as he hit that water. It would be the equivalent of running into a brick wall at 150 mph.
#6. Liking The New Suit
You may notice a wide variety of suits in this trailer but I am assuming this will be the latest one used. This is based mainly on the fact that it looks the best. It’s sleek and dark which makes it better for black ops which appear to be the main focus of this Captain America lead SHIELD film.
Also going to mention that hanger in the background later on.
#5. Elevator Fight Scene
What a small space for a superhero fight. I do like a good few against many fights. The fight looks fun and I am sure in the film we will get more than the flash bits we saw. However the line “Before we get started does anyone want to get out?” Is a bit weird because they’re in a moving elevator, so is he going to throw anyone who said yes out of the window to their death? Haha to which I approve.
#4. FLEET OF HELICARRIERS!!!
I thought there was only one! Is that the 42nd one made? Where is that? Who am I talking to? That looks very cool and clearly a good way to increase the scope of the film with a bunch of the damn things flying around, feel like spaceships. I also like how they take off now using jets which is a bit more believable than them using propellers. Out of water!
#3. The Falcon
He actually looks really cool which is surprising because when you think of a character called the Falcon who dresses in wings. But they are pulling it off and I genuinely think some of the stunts will be excellent.
#2. Bit of Knife Play
Don’t see many knife fights in films anymore; I always think there fun with a lot choreography and skill. It’s weird seeing a knife fight in a big superhero film; it’s such a small weapon. Something about The Winter Soldier is reminding me somewhat of a sober Joker. Looks cool.
#1. Helicarrier Down! Helicarrier Down!
Wow the stakes are big in this film, we got carriers falling! Didn’t even get that in The Avengers. The ships also have a lot more weaponry than in the first film’s carrier. Not sure if this is because it’s a new model or whether this carrier is one taken over by the bad guys and has been retrofitted with more aggressive weapons. I can’t wait to find out.
What I Didn’t Like
Is that Nick Fury down for the count on that operating table? Because it certainly looks that way and I am not a fan of big spoiler drops in trailers. Granted it’s a pretty short spot but I noticed it and I wish I didn’t.
Well that’s my views. Now what do you think about this newest trailer?
