As a fan of the Marvel movies I was profoundly disappointed six months ago by Thor: The Dark World which suffered from lacklustre writing that dumbed down story and character in favour of action. I didn’t hate the movie, but it was my least favourite of all the Marvel movies made to date. I wondered if Marvel’s cinematic success may have ended and the series may have run its course, but if anything Captain America: The Winter Soldier has both restored my faith in the series and set the bar high for its future. I hate for things to be spoiled, so believe me when I say this will be spoiler free, and will only discuss in detail the opening 25 or so minutes.
