If you leave a movie theater talking and thinking about a film, it was probably a good one. That certainly happened this weekend with Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

Phase Two of the Marvel Cinematic Universe gets one step closer to completion this weekend as Captain America: The Winter Soldier finally hits theaters. Anthony and Joe Russo take the next logical step in the story Joe Johnson started in The First Avenger and Joss Whedon continued in The Avengers. Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) is coming to terms with his unique reality after waking from decades frozen in ice, and doing his job as a general bad-ass for S.H.I.E.L.D. He begins to discover a plot, however, that will put in danger everything he stands for, and put him face to face with an old friend who now goes by the name The Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan).
Featuring great performances from Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Anthony Mackie as Falcon, Robert Redford as Alexander Pierce and many more, Captain America: The Winter Soldier is going to change everything you thought about Marvel leading into next summer’s Avengers: Age of Ultron.
