Captain America: The Winter Soldier (Spoilers)

Nick Fury wants pre-emptive counter-terrorist surveillance through the Helicarriers. Steve Rogers tells him that such surveillance is not freedom. Hydra have infiltrated and prove him right - but the technology can be turned against itself.

Those are sufficiently serious issues for a Captain America film. At one point, it is down to an ordinary SHIELD employee to make the right decision after Cap has denounced Hydra.

This film has yet another very effective faked death. There are routine references to Stephen Strange, Bruce Banner, Stark Industries and Iron Man. I sat alone in the middle of the front row for 3D and felt some motion sickness. I was also the only member of the audience to sit till the end of the credits.

Superheroes rule filmwise.
