Wow! This film is filled with DRAMAAAAA! And I LOVE it!! There’s so many shock twists and turns!
This review’s pretty much going to be a OMG, I loved this and I loved that, kind of thing. Deal with it.
The action never stops in this film, blink and you’ll miss something amazing or important. The pacing is intense and spot on, never letting up for a moment. If you like action then you’ll like this. It’s a very story intensive film.
All the characters are BRILLIANT. Steve Rogers does a lot of majestic posing and why shouldn’t he? He is glorious after all.
I was worried for a little while that Natasha was turning into a damsel in distress, but thankfully my fears were swept away in her badassery. I also love their friendship. Finally, a male and female who are just friends. THANK YOU!
Sam Wilson has to be my favourite. I just love his personality and some of the remarks he makes.
Even the villains are excellent because the scary thing is their evil scheme actually makes sense. I didn’t agree with it at all, but it’s terrifying when you can actually get why they’re doing it. And that makes a brilliant bad guy.
This film has got have one of the best ending I’ve seen in awhile for thirty odd minutes I was glued to the screen and metaphorically biting my nails. The action kept going to the last minute.
Most people I’d spoken to said that they loved this film more than the previous one, (which is still fantastic in my opinion), and I think I’d have to agree. Although, it’s by a slim margin. I cannot wait for the sequel though!
To sum up, amazing characters, Brilliant baddies, intense action scenes
Was it worth the watch? Yes
Would I re-watch? Yes
