Usually movie sequels fail to be as good as the original; this was not the case for “Captain America.”

“Captain America: The Winter Soldier” was much better than the first “Captain America” film, which happens to be one of my favorite Marvel movies.

The new movie focuses on Captain America, played by Chris Evans, and Black Widow, played by Scarlett Johansson, as they join forces to find and stop a secret or “ghostlike” enemy.

When it comes to action and fighting, you could not ask for a better plot.

Captain America’s fighting was in full force there was not much time where the movie did not focus on action.

The plot, however, could be somewhat confusing to many.

It was not the most complicated plot ever by any means, but some parts made me think a little before fully understanding the significance of them.

Evans’ acting was, once again, phenomenal. I could not see a lot of actors doing as good of a job with Captain America as Evans.

Overall most of the actors and actresses did a great job with their respective characters.

The scenery was absolutely incredible. Sometimes you have to take your mind away from the plot just to appreciate the scenery that was used when making the film.

I don’t want to spoil anything about the story, but this has one of the most jaw dropping plots that I have ever seen in a movie.

As with most Marvel movies, the ending left us with the knowledge that there will be another “Captain America” movie.

If you have not seen the first “Captain America” film, go watch it. Once you watched that one, go watch “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” you will not be disappointed.
