A Comic book action film with indistinguishable action,
This review is from: Captain America: The Winter Soldier [Blu-ray 3D + Blu-ray] [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
Honestly, I thought this film was decent, but nothing special. I was hoping for some truly amazing scenes, especially with the main villain being the Winter Solider!!!
Point 1: I saw The Raid 2 a week before I saw this film, and maybe I was heading in with high expectations since The Raid 2 blew me away with the action, story and cinematography (not to mention it was done a fraction of the budget of this film!!)... but the fight scenes in Cap 2 were pathetic to say the least. Fight scenes were a blur with constant camera cuts and shaky cameras missing so much detail - I've seen fight scenes done better by Amateurs on Youtube.
Point 2: The villain is like, seriously cool, kinda.... but we rarely see him throughout the entire film. He turns up once or twice to kill a few people, then fight cap. He needed more dialogue, more action and more personality... I really didn't care if Cap killed him or not.
Other than these 2 points, the film was generally fun to watch - casting was good, story was pretty good, but this film fails in it's most important aspect - action.
Seriously, if you're 18+ and want adrenaline fueled action - watch The Raid 2
