Captain America: The Winter Soldier (12A)

SET two years after The Avengers, The Winter Soldier opens with Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) acclimatising to life in present day Washington D.C..

In his heroic guise as Captain America, he leads a daring rescue mission at sea, flanked by sexy spy Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson) and S.H.I.E.L.D.'s counter-terrorism unit.

Soon after, Nick Fury escorts Rogers into the bowels of the agency's headquarters, which houses three state-of-the-art heli-carriers. These aerial warships, codenamed Project Insight, will extinguish threats to global peace from the skies, killing terrorists before they have a chance to strike.

"I thought the punishment usually came after the crime," observes Rogers.

"We can't afford to wait that long," retorts Fury coldly.

Alexander Pierce (Redford), a senior member of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the World Security Council, echoes Fury's grave concerns.

"To build a better world, sometimes you've got to tear the old one down," he warns Rogers.
