If you’re a fan of Marvel, head to ‘Marvel: Creating the Cinematic Universe’, at the Gallery of Modern Art where the Australian Cinémathèque is screening all the films from the Marvel Cinematic Universe including Captain America: The Winter Soldier 2014. This is a great opportunity to see the films and never-before-seen set pieces which have inspired the exhibition.
‘This isn’t freedom, this is fear.’
‘S.H.I.E.L.D. takes the world as it is, not as we’d like it to be. And it’s getting damn near past time for you to get with that program, Cap.’
Steve Rogers (‘Cap’) and Nick Fury
In Captain America: The Winter Soldier Anthony and Joe Russo deliver visceral action and sophisticated plotting inspired by spy thrillers. After the events of the Battle of New York, Steve Rogers is getting up to speed with the modern world. On a hostage rescue with Black Widow, he finds she has been given a clandestine objective to reveal disloyal elements within S.H.I.E.L.D. — and that the agency is developing advanced surveillance technology at odds with his ideas of freedom. Steve goes off the grid, trusting only Black Widow and kindred spirit Sam Wilson – Falcon (Anthony Mackie). The Winter Soldier’s close-quarters combat sequences ground the film in reality, and its hero’s perspective on the layered conspiracies elevate its ‘man-out-of-time’ story to be a sharp take on spy and Super Hero alike.
