Director: Joe RussoAnthony Russo

Rating: *  *  * 1/2

Synopsis:Steve Rogers continues his journey as the super-poweredAmerican soldier who's grasping to find his place in a modernworld after being frozen in ice since WWII with this Marvel Studios sequel. Chris Evans returns to star, with Community director/producers Joe and Anthony Russo helming
The marvel universe continues to thrive with ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier,’  the second in the recent Captain America series, toplining Steve Rogers’ continued  athleticism combined with his unique super powers  in his renewed attempts to make America a safer place.
The film gets topical with it’s hot-button elements as drone warfare, NSA spying and Wikileaks-style secret sharing.  The screenplay by returning writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely makes the ingredients interesting and complex enough to devise enough doses of  mystery and thrills. “The Winter Soldier” is actually situated in a world where those on both sides of the political discourse have done much to compromise basic human freedoms in the name of defending them.
"Captain America: The Winter Soldier" opens with Steve Rogers, jogging around Washington D.C. His speed is such that he keeps passing Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie) before Wilson can complete one of his laps. It’s a humorous opening and at once establishes beyond doubt the super prowess of the super hero. The opening action sequence features Captain America and Black  Widow (Scarlett Johanssen)storming Washington D.C. and later on they are sent on another mission on a ship. There’s also an elevator brawl and a car chase through the streets of Washington to keep you glued to your seats.
Over the quick-fire action and a little bit of exposition,  Rogers learns that he can trust at least two people: the dangerous-limbed ex-KGB agent and Fury protege /Black Widow Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson) and former Army paratrooper Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie), who, like Rogers, lost his wingman in the war zone.
So now it’s them three against the Enemies of the state. And Alexander Pierce(Robert Redford) emerges as the man to outfox.  At seemingly every turn, the intrepid trio find themselves assailed by the eponymous Winter Soldier, a lethal assassin with a silvery robotic arm and a half-century’s worth of kills on his resume.
Captain America is a goody two shoes who fights with a shield, wears an excessively patriotic costume and doesn’t come across as a ladies man(a half-hearted attempt at asking out his neighbor assayed by Emily VanCamp). Yet he has become one of the most endearing and entertaining of Marvel’s superheroes. He is a loner ‘cos he pronanly feels outdated. He visits the Smithsonian Institution’s “Captain America” room, and images of Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) and Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) only serve to remind him of what he’s lost. He feels pain and is also strong on emotion.
The  wonderfully choreographed and shot action relies heavily on hand to hand combat and practical effects with CGI assists. It’s a stupendous array of set-pieces that will leave you overawed. Co-directors Anthony and Joe Russo heap on the humor in the most precipitous of situations and yet manages to score brilliantly on the action chops.  The clarity and depth achieved here is scintillating to say the least!
