THE FALCON AND THE WINTER SOLDIER (2021): The Things I Liked…

I liked The Falcon and the Winter Soldier immediately, thanks to a tense, action-filled first few minutes. This is precisely what I’d been hoping for from a series about two of the Avengers. Even more so considering my disappointment with the first two episodes of WandaVision (2021). 

Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan’s six-part series is an action/adventure that sees Sam Wilson (The Falcon) and Bucky Barnes (The Winter Soldier) adjusting to the world following the events of Avengers Endgame (2019). And it’s not long before they have to deal with a new, earthly enemy.

My partiality to a beautiful bromance makes it no wonder that the scenes of Mackie and Stan on screen together are my favourite. The moments when they appeared separately or not at all were often engaging too. Nevertheless, ‘fully engaging throughout’ is not how I can best describe The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. There are periods when it feels flat, less urgent, less exciting, and lacking my favourite element of all; the fun action and an adequately speedy pace. 

The other issue I have with The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is its main villain, Karli Morgenthau (Erin Kellyman); a character whose story/villainy I just didn’t fully buy.

Overall, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is good but I can’t say that I love it in its entirety. However, I will remember it fondly for the bromance/action. Especially in episode one, towards the end of the fourth episode and much of episode five. Make time if you’re curious.

The final trailer for Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan’s Marvel Studios series, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is out at last, and it looks great.

Full disclosure, I like the earlier trailers for The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. However, it wasn’t until this version that I finally became excited about the series. This trailer embodies more of that Marvel Studios trailer signature that I love so much.

My only hope now is that I enjoy this a lot more than I did WandaVision (2021).

Miki Ishikawa, Adepero Oduye, Desmond Chiam, Shane Berengue, John Gettier and Neal Kodinsky also star.

Stars of Marvel’s Avengers movies, Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan are back in new Marvel Entertainment series The Falcon and The Winter Soldier.

With additional key cast including Wyatt Russell, Emily VanCamp and Daniel Brühl; the show will focus on Mackie and Stan’s Falcon and The Winter Soldier characters. More detail yet to be confirmed. Howver, you can bet that the world is going to need saving.

I’m interested to see whether the series will feel as epic as the movies. I’mean, it’s Marvel, which means at that the very least, it’s going to come incredibly close.

I’m also curious about the Mackie/Stan dynamic. Particularly since it already feels strange knowing that Steve Rogers/Captain American is nowhere in sight.

Desmond Chiam, John Gettier, Miki Ishikawa, Adepero Oduye, Shane Berengue and Neal Kodinsky also star.
