Topic: Comic Book Movies
TODAY'S FEATURE IS BLOG #3993 - I'm just back from viewing this new film at my local theater...
I wanted to blog about this film while it was fresh in my mind.
First of all, here is the link to my review on the first Captain America film in this new trilogy. You will notice that I gave it a 9.8 (NM/M) Near Mint / Mint.
Unfortunately... I'm not giving this 2nd film the same comic book grade... Why?
Well... Here's why:
The film had a good story, and good actors. However, the total film just didn't have the total affect on me as the first film did.
Possibly because the first film had a WWII background to it. This second one didn't although there were references to Cap's past.
The actors were fine, and the storyline just... so-so in my viewing. There just wasn't anything that got me excited while viewing this film. It was kind of like watching the new TV Show, Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. That show is okay, but nothing really exciting going on. I do watch it each week, to see what is happening, but it just doesn't jump out at me to watch it first on my DVR taped list of shows to view.
The same mood kind of goes for this film for me...
I like Steve Rogers / Captain America... .as portrayed by Chris Evans. I like him more as 'Cap' than as the 'Torch' in the Fantastic Four films. He does this film fine..
Scarlett Johansson is fine as the Black Widow. I like how she is shown during the film, with more to do time wise.
I don't understand why Sebastian Stan as The Winter Soldier doesn't grab me more... It just doesn't come across to me with his connection to Captain America. I understand what the connection is, but it just doesn't seem 'real' to me.
The others in the film are fine also... Which is probably why I'm giving this film an 8.0 VF Very Fine grade. It just doesn't grab me as so many of the other Marvel films have.
In fact for those of you that aren't into Marvel Comics... I would almost say to wait to catch this on DVD when it comes out later this year... Yeah, I really do mean that. And that after giving the first film such high marks!
I'm posting the link to this blog on my Facebook Fan Page, where I ask you to share what you thought of this film if you do see in the theaters.
The above is just 'My Take' on this second of the three Captain America films coming our way. The third installment is scheduled for May 6th of 2016.
Oh, and if you want to see all the details of this film, the Wikipedia entry has it all, but that will take out some of the experience for you to see it on the Big Screen.
