CaptainHULK reviews Captain America: The Winter Soldier

  Marvel Studios ......... I mean what can I say that's not already been said about this movie..........
Absolutely nothing! I checked ..... I scoured the Internet looking for respectable reviews, some minor spoilers, cryptic tweets & down right mindless speculation. Do you know how long us comic book nerdies have worried about Phase 2. Answer since the start of Phase 2 with Iron Man 3 are actual quotes! "Why didn't S.H.E.I.L.D help Tony or President Ellis" ...... During Thor: The Dark World more actual quotes" Where's S.H.E.I.L.D? Didn't Darcy call them?"  Now comes Captain America: The Winter Soldier & the answer is given. I wont spoil it because I know all of you are going to go see this movie or I personally will hunt you down & SMASH YOUR FACE!!!  Just kidding sometimes its fun just to HULK it up a bit! Sorry no more jokes! Now back to my review. Plain & simple Marvel is becoming more & more like one of their famous X-Men villains ..... " I'm the Juggernaut!!!" My honest opinion is they have seemingly perfected an already great formula. The comedy balance between tone & setting was just about perfect. The action was top shelf & yes its been said a thousand times but I was on the edge of my seat from the first " On your left"!!! The MCU version of the Falcon is really bad@$$ & his back story hits on all cylinders emotionally. The idea of making him a former Army Vet turned P.T.S.D Councilor really sells him & really endears him to the audience going forward in the Marvel Universe. My son & his friend both now want Falcon Wings! Now my personal favorite was the Batroc the Leaper fight scene! Chris Evans showed up on set looking for a fight and Georges St-Pierre delivered explosively! See what I did there???

FEED....... HULK ....... MORE of  Captain America -vs- Batroc the Leaper! My final analysis is 2016 can't get here soon enough! But wait Captain America returns in Avengers: Age of Ultron so I'm sure we wont have to wait to long to find out about Cap & Falcon's post Captain America: The Winter Soldier activities? Is Nick Fury retiring or going underground? Is Black Widow really coming clean? What happens to the 20 million special targets which includes a Strange Doctor & a small reference to a Cairo, Egypt ...News Reporter??? We will have to wait, but as always stay tuned to Agents of S.H.E.I.L.D Tuesday at 8/7 pm #ItsAllConnected for more threads on the MCU future & as always stay tuned here to the Brain Splatter for more SMASHING updates!................ 4.7 / 5 on the SMASH METER!!!

And with that ladies and gentlemen............ CaptainHULK OUT!!!
