The only thing that did not seem to hold up quite as well is the soundtrack, which changes the pop of the first film orchestrated by Alan Silvestri to a less noticeable job by Henry Jackman. Even more, I love the paranoid espionage feel thrown in by other characters like SHIELD senior leader Alexander Pierce (Robert Redford) and how we get to revisit some of the integral cogs of the first movie reincorporated cleverly (and if you want even more, the TV show “Agents of Shield” does a brilliant job of showing similar events happening to those not with super powers).
I’ll also give a tip of the hat to new character Sam Wilson/The Falcon (Anthony Mackie) for introducing a compatriot that helps our hero hold to those core values and gives proof that they can work even now. Like the first film, I’ll have no problem watching it repeatedly and highly recommend it. In the end, it’s worth four and a half out of five shields for “Captain America: The Winter Soldier.”
