Hi everyone. I finally got to see Captain America: The Winter Soldier last night. I know by now a lot of you will have seen it, but these are still my thoughts.
I loved how in the movie they made parallels with modern day politics and problems. It was good to see characters of fiction struggling with problems we're facing in the real world. I also liked how they incorporated hidden areas being associated with big secrets. The action also looked real and the characters, good and bad, were very believable.
Content advisory: Lots of explosions and shooting. A character's arm is broken. Several characters swear, though it's not very heavy most of the film. Some characters drink alcohol.
Lessons: Sometimes we must be willing to stand up for what is right even when others don't agree. Don't try to solve all problems by yourself. Find friends who will be true no matter what. Never give up on those you care about. If people in power are not protecting the rights of the people, it is the people's responsibility to take a stand.
