Captain America: The Winter Soldier (one of the most patriotic movies I have ever seen)


I just saw the new superhero movie, Captain America: The Winter Soldier.  If you like superhero movies, you will love this movie.  It has all the action, plot twists, and some good old irony.  What I loved about The Winter Soldier most was the theme.  It had the most Constitutional theme I have ever seen in a movie.  Power in the hands of a few is dangerous, even if it supposed to be for good.

At the beginning of the movie, the protagonist, Steve Rogers, a.k.a Captain America is wrestling with the fact that he does not know what to fight for anymore.  SHIELD, the organization he works for, is no longer following the moral code that Captain America holds dear.  He learns what is really going on and he and his team, made up of the Falcon and Black Widow, set out to save the world and to save true freedom.

I also liked how the movie showed that when a people loses a sense of morality, their freedom is also taken.  As people lose their sense of morality, more crimes are committed, and more laws have to be created.  This is shown in The Winter Soldier.

The Winter Soldier also gives a clear example of unconditional love and sacrifice.  A hero gives everything, not for the glory, but to save others.

While I loved the themes and the story overall, the movie was very fast-paced and slightly hard to follow. Despite this, Captain America is my favorite superhero.  From the beginning of his story, he displayed amazing amounts of courage and character.  When people are in danger, he does not care to risk it all to save them.  I would highly recommend Captain America: The Winter Soldier.  Go and see it sometime.
