Concerning about the term “Network”, Paddy Chayefsky has brought out several points of views that still echo till today’s world that once were shown to the audience by Peter Finch’s newsman Howard Beale in the role of barrier towards one of television’s dramatic shortcomings: “We’ll tell you anything you want to hear; we lie like hell.
We’ll tell you that Kojak always gets the killer, or that nobody ever gets cancer at Archie Bunker’s house, and no matter how much trouble the hero is in, don’t worry, just look at your watch; at the end of the hour he’s going to win. We’ll tell you any s–t you want to hear.”
However, this doesn’t remain the same in the comparison with the actual situation, pioneering chains of features from “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” to “The Wire” to “Game of Thrones” indicated the worlds in which even the good-hearted ones could properly die by cold blood, without any previous signs. And if there is any possibility for a role in “Mad Men” scares out to change the agency, the drama doesn’t plan to make him or her change the virtue eventually.
Still, in any serial plays, we have the norm that offers the threat of any innovation or disproportion before quickly reverting to the state of quo. That’s the kind of safety net that can creep into movie franchises as well. In the co-operative world of Disney-Marvel, for example, SHIELD is always under the cover of good guys while HYDRA is considered the bad one. Therefore, the role of superheroes is to make sure the world is a place for the innocent ones.
With “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” the corps behind one of the profitable series in modern cinema is brave to make a further move, far away from the comfortable zone, not only tossing the building blocks of a film and television canon up in the air but also using a mainstream entertainment to provoke the questions about our regime and about how to cope with the over-development of technology. This is the era when the lack of privacy and security happens everywhere.
Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely (“Thor: The Dark World”) works from a story made by Ed Brubaker and the Russos brothers and they had the possibility to ask those questions concerning about the achievement of the Avengers under the influence of subversive cinematic world.
Eventually, we can make sure that the up-coming part gives the discourse about geopolitics as much as it’s a movie where a 91-year-old man has the power to throw his shimmery shield in peoples’ faces. If you watch this chapter because you are the huge fan of Captain America’s violent scenes, you’ll get that in spades, but if you prefer superhero movies that allow themselves to run a gamut wider than A to B, there’s that as well.
We find out that Cap is still capable of fitting well in a new and modern world after decades of separation in a ice cape under the sea. He can listen to new kinds of music, makes new friends (well, have to note veteran Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie) and hooks up with the other ones (for example, Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson). During the ship’s rescue, Cap has the impression that Black Widow concentrates to much on restoring the data from the deck’s computer and here it is, the moment of loosing faith and trust in people.
So on, Fury and Rogers involve in a verbal fight about the trust and the virtue of humans beings. If you are expecting that Fury would have a moral lesson about opening up towards the others’ hearts, you are wrong. Because in this chapter, it’s Cap that take on the mission of discovering what remains deep under the surface of the whole story, of the differentiation between colors of democracy and liberty.
The new principal newbie of the movie, Fury’s boss in the state department, Alexander Pierce (Robert Redford), gets us a big surprise with his coat to turn behind the role of SHIELD’s domestic surveillance program into a deadly bit of social engineering. When we take a look at the past role of Redford in “All the President’s Men” and “The Three Days of the Condor,” we would wonder who better to be part of a vast, paranoia-inducing conspiracy within the U.S. government?
Speaking of Fury whose chessboard is taken off early in the feature, Black Widow and Sam — whom comics readers know as The Falcon, brought to the giant screen in a brand new and thrilling way to unfold all the incidents and make them halt. (Marvel fans will also be high with the act of the cast, mainly the characters like Jasper Sitwell and Batroc, although the existence of different versiosn).
During more than 120 minutes, Rogers will find out that while SHIELD and HYDRA might have different mission statements, both of them share a dream of taking over their foes and hiring the big boys who can make their desire in real. “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” is referred to a brainwashed, the deadly treasure of HYDRA (Sebastian Stan) who remains still an incognito. The fight between Cap and this assassin bounds along impressively, making the audience highly focus on the big screen. This can be said to be one of the glorious triumph of the movie so far, resulting to a reverberation.
The first “Captain America” did compose of very good and interesting ideas but somehow, we still can feel the train of emotions flows inside the plot and branches of the movie. This time around, nevertheless, Marvel has done a good job in raising the bar on what we can expect from the ongoing adventures of these men and women in tights.
