'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' gets the 1980s VHS treatment

Posted on

The Winter Soldier 1980s Style

Captain America: The Winter Soldier was a pretty fantastic action movie that was also plugged in to some of the Big Issues of today—stuff like drone warfare, surveillance, and the morality of pre-emptive measures. Turns out it also works as a solid and relevant 1980s action movie as well.

Spotted by Kotaku, a video by YouTube user ChiefBrodyRules splices footage from 1980s classics like Robocop with Captain America’s numerous appearances to make a glorious, synthesizer-filled trailer with plenty of tracking. Watch it. It’s pretty great.
