We see a struggling Steve Rogers/Captain America (Chris Evans) who has found that the world he left in 1945 is much changed. In 1945, it was a world in which horrible events occurred. Captain America fought so that people could be free. It is now a world that is under constant surveillance in the name of protecting that freedom. At beginning of the movie comes “That’s not freedom. That’s fear,” announces Captain America as he discusses this surveillance and planning strikes before someone has broken the law. It is this neat juxtaposition of fighting for freedom vs. living in fear under the guise of protecting freedom that drives the main plot of Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
I saw Captain America: The Winter Soldier in 3D and it plays really well in the format. I have to admit, one of the best uses of 3D technology was in the old fashioned chase sequences. Captain America: The Winter Soldier has all the marks of a great blockbuster. I will buy the DVD.
