The folks at Screen Junkies have done a wonderful job over the years of lampooning some of Hollywood’s biggest and boldest products with their “Honest Trailers,” a parody project that markets movies with their flaws exposed. And as far as we can remember, they have not yet run up against a movie that is impervious to their observations. Until now, that is. Marvel Studios, whether they know it or not, accepted the challenge and delivered a movie in Captain America: The Winter Soldier that is actually, you know, pretty good.
About half way through this Honest Trailer entry, the usually sarcastic narrator stops and admits that Cap 2 is an excellent film. Watch for yourself after the break.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier is available on Digital formats now.
