"Perfect movie for me!!!!!! Steve Rogers is one of the best characters to come out of MCU. He's paired up with Natasha 'Black Widow' in this story, he also meets Sam 'Falcon'. The action in this movie is great; the elevator fight is amazing and the last fight between captain america and the winter soldier is stunning!! Nick Fury's "death" was also pretty cool. The explosions and gunfire were really realistic as well. My favourite characters were:

1. Falcon

2. Captain America

3. Nick Fury

Overall, this was a great film which I will probably watch multiple times... Soon I will be watching 'Gaurdians of the Galaxy', hopefully it's just as good as this film."
