A tad boring

The Falcon and The Winter Soldier (E3)

Disney+Hotstar

*ing: Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Wyatt Russell, Erin Kellyman, Danny Ramirez, Emily VanCamp

Rated: 5.5/10

After the stunning action in episode two, one would have expected that things would only get better, at least in terms of action. That is what Avengers is all about — one brilliant action to jaw-dropping action in another.

Well, episode 3 takes a breather and slows its pace and get down to telling one the story of the Flag Smashers and their ideology how things were better during the Blip — when half the population  was disappearing due to Thanos’ snap.

But not all is lost here. There are a few characters that come into the screen. One, there is Sharon, former SHIELD agent and then there is  Zemo, the Sokovian terrorist responsible for the Avengers’ breakup in Captain America: Civil War. Yes, he is out of the jail and thinks of himself as the hero rather than a villain.

Then there is Captain America. Like in the previous prequel where he doesn’t have much to do, here too he steps in for a few seconds only to disappear and let the Falcon and Winter Soldier take centrestage with the Flag Smashers going about on their way even if it means killing a few people and blowing up a building.

Once again, the six-part mini-series leaves at juncture which promises to have lots of action in the remaining episodes.
