My Review: *Spoilers goes without saying, DO NOT READ if you have not seen this movie*
Man listen….I really don’t know where to begin. I knew this movie would be good, but I had NO idea it would be Marvel’s best entry to date. This movie was EVERYTHING and promoted Steve Rogers to the iconic hero he is. Cap is my favorite Avenger mainly because he is grounded with a big heart and moral compass and the most human without the flash at the same time. The writers brilliantly show just why he is a hero and why he is The First Avenger. It is so much to take away from this film, but I will breakdown why it slays and its definitely worth your time and money if you’re interested.
Steve Rogers - Chris Evans is the BAE, but he without a doubt has completely embodied Captain America. He was flawless (and looks it as well) and nailed all his scenes, especially those emotional ones. ‘O Captain, my captain…wonderful job indeed.
Natasha Romanoff - Scarlett has really evolved the Black Widow from her first start in Iron Man 2. She and rightfully so was the perfect choice for the female lead in this film. NO other female could have did what she did and added to that film the way she did. Her kicking a** is always a beauty to watch, but her humanization was the star this go round.
Sam Wilson - My other boo Anthony Mackie was glorious in this one. Repping as a proud native of New Orleans, Anthony was perfect to play Falcon. He was witty, kick a**, his wings are awesome and he was a great addition to the team. I look forward to seeing more of him to come!
The Winter Soldier - Well hot damn! What is this? Marvel has an actual threatening villain in their movies?! Sebastian Stan was a BAMF! He really had me scared for the lives of those fighting him. I mean dude was a possessed terminator for real. Sebastian knocked it out the park.
Nick Fury - What a great display of character from SLJ in this one. I’m so glad they finally gave him more to work with, it was past time. He delivered 100%! Sam did an awesome showing why he’s Nick Fury and why Fury is Fury. Interesting to see where Nick goes from here, but dope stuff no doubt.
Alexander Pierce - Robert Redford is legend and that’s pretty much all you need to know. Didn’t expect no less from him.
All in all the main cast was outstanding! Honorable mentions goes to Frank Grillo and Cobie Smulders.
One of the main reasons this film worked was the all the relationships that manifested onscreen. What many might not know is that those relationships translates because most of the cast are really good friends off screen and all have worked with each other prior to filming. It was very natural and real and you can’t cast authentic no matter how well a person can act. The relationships were the heart of the movie.
Steve/Sam - One of the best formed bromances ever assembled. In the comics Falcon and Cap are very good friends and partners and this is no different for Chris and Anthony who are friends as well. They brought that same relationship to the screen and it was delightful to watch.
Steve/Natasha - Now let me say, I ship these two like the helicarrier, but aside from that I loved watching the development of their relationship. Everyone should know by now how close Evansson is and they have a comfort level like no other together. As I mentioned before, Scarlett was perfectly cast as co-lead in this film because of their dynamic onscreen and off screen. It just works no matter what and Marvel hit a goldmine by having those two in those roles. Realistically, Romanogers happening would’ve been far fetched for this movie b/c of where we last saw them standing in Avengers and because of their character traits in general. We had yet to see them really interact and develop a relationship and this movie done that. They have a bond now and trust each other fervently so that’s a great connection formed. Now did this movie spell out exactly where they stand? Not at all. You can see they care for one another deeply, are attracted to one another, and have an unmistakable respect for one another. it was mentioned by the directors how they relationship is clearly undefined and in a gray area because there’s an intimacy to it now. I think that’s even better, nothing like an ambiguous relationship to keep people guessing and that’s exactly what those teases at Marvel will do. They’re both going on a self-discovery journey so it’ll be interesting to see where AOU takes us with that. Whether they go there or not (and the hope is they do) at least they gave them development because Widow is a strong partner and friend to Cap as well. It will have to do as far as the MCU goes because let’s be real Romanogers is canon and signed, sealed, delivered with their seed James Rogers. So I’ll always have that to fall back on. It was all kinds of feels watching them in this movie though.
Steve/Fury - This is one of the more important relationships that got needed spotlight. Fury has mad respect for Cap and Nick’s father Jack Fury fought with Cap back in the day so he always will have that acknowledgment for him. But of course there’s the trust issues where they knock heads at and after this movie its finally put to bed and those two start anew. Wonderfully done.
Steve/Peggy - Lawdddd Steggy had me in my feelings. Hayley is such a doll and did superb. This is one of those emotional scenes I was talking about. Chris’s face was killing me softly. I mean the whole time during this scene Whitney Houston’s “Didn’t We Almost Have It All” is playing in my head. I mean it was just bittersweet. So wish we could have more of Hayley Atwell in the MCU. She was truly Steve’s heart…le sighs.
Steve/Bucky - Just good Lord…these two…I just. Emo was all over the place with Stucky. I was hurting for both of them. I really felt what both of them had to be going through seeing each other and those fights tho..geez it was like burning watching them. This clearly was the highlight of the film. Just kudos man.
The tone was perfect. It was exactly what it needed to be for this film. Though there was lines of humor, the movie NEVER got away from itself. The most serious one yet.
The writers are definitely to be commended for their script. They took a comic book storyline and translated it remarkably to film. It was balanced and well structured. Hats of to Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely!
The Russo Brothers turned Cap all the way up and fans could not be happier! Thank you for finally showing him as a BAMF. And all the action sequences are mind blowing and not contrived one bit. Some of the best action I’ve seen in film period. Russo’s did that!
Like I said, truly Marvel’s best in my view and game changer for Cap’s franchise and the Avengers. The Russo’s have raised the bar and it is to be noted. Thank you, thank you, thank you, this movie did not disappoint and have me anxiously awaiting Cap 3 as much as AOU. Like Magneto would say “Perfection.”
So, Cap 3 will be a continuation from Cap 2. Everyone who was in this one that’s alive is making a comeback for the third. Now let me just say this, one of those people is Agent 13, who I didn’t shed light on b/c of her brief role, but she is going to be more prominent in the next…sighs.
I will be honest, I absolutely have NO EFFS to give about this character.. She is one of my most disliked comic characters because of her useless purpose and lazy arc from the creators. I HATE how she was put as a love interest for Cap just because she’s a relative of Peggy(he deserved better), which is gross btw, I HATE how she played a major negative role in Cap’s story knowingly or not, I really just cannot with this character at all. Basic is the best word used to describe her. I for one feel it was disrespectful and trash to have him date his first love’s kin….just ugh. I would think out of all the love and respect Steve has for Peggy, he wouldn’t dare. It’s way out of his character. Emily looks very young next to Chris to me as well, but if this atrocity does happen God forbid…it needs to be super developed. For this to believable, it has to be done with tact and authenticity. How will they do this in one film? I have no idea. We could end up with the mess that is Thor/Jane, which is just a horribly written romance. I am going to pray because I will be pissed if this “romance” is sh*t and will already be fighting the urge to regurgitate if this evolves. I’m really getting sick just thinking about it, but honestly I hope they think long and hard about this before just putting it out there if it has to be. Now, we could all be saved and its nothing because in other comic versions she is nothing more but an ally and friend and actually dates Sam, with Steve being a mentor to her despite her feelings for him. You know this would make much more sense, but you can’t ever be too sure with Marvel. Needless to say, Cap 3 will be interesting.
- Love the Stephen Strange mention and the glimpse of the Avengers tower.

Notice how Shan Yu doesn’t even question it or make a comment about “BUT YOU’RE A GIRL” he just instantly goes into a “I’LL TEACH YOU TO KILL MY MEN AND STEAL MY VICTORY” rage and I think about this a lot sometimes
((Well that might have to do with the fact that he’s a Hun. Women among the Huns had higher status than their Chinese counterparts and even some of their own men. Women were free to hunt and fight along side of the men, could choose their own husbands and divorce him if she choose to. There were even records of clans being led by women leaders. So for Shan Yu Mulan is just another soldier))
thank you, history side of tumblr.
He also might not have been able to see very well, due to whatever horrible disease has taken hold in his eyeballs.
Pretty serious Wilson’s Disease judging by the copper buildup in in irises, and apparent melanocytosis localized to his sclera.
