Fifth about The Seventh

Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Captain America: The Winter Soldier: this film’s story is relatively grounded (for the genre, of course; that’s not to say that aspects of it are not properly outlandish); the main character is appealing, for being so earnest and vulnerable. Likewise, the Russo Brothers shoot the action scenes, mostly, in a gritty way, appropriate for the nature of the main characters and villains. It’s a good-looking cast, even if they don’t have all that much to do; the recurring cast (Scarlett Johansson, Chris Evans and Samuel L. Jackson) already knows what to do, and the addition of Robert Redford and Anthony Mackie is welcome. For better or worse, however, this film is too much part of an extended universe (that includes a number of other films and a TV series) and at times it feels as if too many pieces of the puzzle are located elsewhere.
