The Falcon and the Winter Soldier has finally come to an end, and it’s one of the best content to come out from Marvel Studios. From the visuals, storytelling, and character developments, I don’t know how it can get better than this. Let’s get into the review because I’ve been waiting to talk about this series since Friday.
Here’s a quick summary about The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. The series takes place six months after Avengers: Endgame, and people are trying to return to their regular lives, but it’s not as easy as it seems. A group of anti-nationalists super soldiers called the Flag Smashers wants the world to be how it was during the blip, and it’s up to Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie) and Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) to stop them with the help of Zemo (Daniel Brühl). Also, the Flag Smashers not only have to worry about Sam and Bucky, but also John Walker (Wyatt Russell) aka the new Captain America and his friend Lemar Hoskins (Clé Bennett) aka Battlestar.
The story was top-notched. Each episode kept upping the bar, and I was surprised how they nailed it every time. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier was incredibly grounded! The series talked about real life issues like race, the government, the importance of mental health, just everything was written fantastically. I’ve been following the MCU since the beginning, and I don’t think there’s been a story that hit me where it hurts on a personal level. Again, I don’t know how it get’s better than this because there’s a lot of fantastic stories, but I don’t think it’ll touch me the same way like The Falcon and the Winter Soldier did.
Sam and Bucky stories were written incredibly well! Sam not being sure if he’s meant to be Captain America was hard hitting because the question always got brought up “How will the world react to a Black man being Captain America?” And him accepting the fact it doesn’t matter how people would judge him because he’ll always do what’s right, and I loved it. Bucky trying to deal with the wrongs that he’s done as the Winter Soldier was sad, but seeing his development and finally was able to move on and be happy in the end was satisfying. Plus, I love how both Sam and Bucky finally ended up as best friends.
Many characters were great in the show. With John Walker going crazy being Captain America, Zemo being funny but serious when things go down, Sharon Carter (Emily VanCamp) being a badass, Isiah Bradley’s (Carl Lumbly) telling his pain, and Karli (Erin Kellyman) doing whatever’s necessary for her cause, just all really good stuff. I can’t wait to see see where their stories will go from here because it’s just the beginning. The actors all have done a fantastic job, whether if their role was big or small. Here’s a round of applause to both writers and actors.
The visuals were just insane! We knew that the shows were going to have a huge budget, but The Falcon and the Winter Soldier looked incredible. Also the cinematography and fight choreographies were done well too. If we’re getting shows like this, it’s like why even go to the theaters to watch the films when we get this quality content on Disney+?! Kudos to the team behind this because loved it. Another thing is the costume designs in the show because everything looked good, especially Sam’s Captain America costume because it’s like it was pulled straight out of the comics.
Overall, I really enjoyed this series. Just six episodes and I feel like they got the job done. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is one of Marvel’s best, and if things starts touching on tough topics, but consider it bad storytelling, what does that say about you? Again, nailed it and I can’t wait to see Sam rock the Captain America suit on the big screen!
If you haven’t watched this series, please do, because it’s worth it.
