The sequel goes bigger in the bloodiest of ways, using precision and extended sequences to tell an epic story of brutality in the crime genre. Evans affirms his talent and craftsmanship with unflinching precision. The film’s energy and expressionistic verve cannot be denied as it culminates in a cavalcade of genre filmmaking.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier (dir. Anthony & Joe Russo).
The film proves itself as one of the more ambitious yet flawed Marvel film entries as the Russos bring an interesting dynamic to character and action. Evans is full of the same charm and likability despite being dragged down by a muddled, overstuffed plot and clunky themes. There’s so much going on action and story wise as the fugitive Cap on the run just doesn’t mesh with his usual patriotism.
