Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Rated PG-13.

But before everything goes crash-bang-kaboom, there's humility, here, too — a perspective we don't always get from Thor's godlike ego or Iron Man's man-made one — in the moment where the Captain, while racing to save the day, glimpses a hologram of his younger, pre-serum self. Scrawny Steve Rogers stares back agape. For the first time we truly feel the magic of his muscles, the awesome and frightening authority of being America's first and last über-human hope. We see the flashlight-under-the-covers fantasies of four generations of comic book fans. And we understand their dream of becoming Captain America, especially this Captain America who fights in, for, and against our world.
