The Marvel Cinematic Universe has thrilling chase sequences, but The Falcon and the Winter Soldier produced the best yet in an aerial shootout.

WARNING: The following contains spoilers for The Falcon and the Winter Soldier Episode 1, “New World Order”, now broadcast on Disney +.

In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we’ve had some pretty exciting chase sequences. Black Panther hunting Bucky Barnes in Captain America: Civil War, Spider-Man chasing the Vulture thugs in Homecoming, Doctor Strange chasing enemies through dimensions as they leap to and from New York, as well as Captain Marvel chasing the Skrulls in Los Angeles, are some of the highlights.

However, as epic as they were, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier just gave Marvel Studios its best high-speed chase yet with a thrilling and intense chase through the clouds by Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie).

Sam has returned to work for the government, but the mission that opens the series premiere has to stay under the radar. He needs to get US Air Force Capt. Vasant back before Batroc’s LAF terrorist crew (Georges St-Pierre) gets from Tunisian airspace to Libya, where they would then have no jurisdiction. And make no mistake, he and Redwing are up to the task, as he jumps out of his plane the same way Cap did in The Winter Soldier, with an air of courage and confidence for someone who is now more experienced.

The result is a high-octane sequence, as Sam’s Falcon jetpack blasts him into the air at supersonic speeds, outmaneuvering Batroc’s goons who decide to parachute with their victim to escape. The CGI is so polished, most of it looks real, and the camera angles, speed of the shot, and overall visual aesthetics make you feel like you’re there, no dizziness or dizziness. At a time when fans are criticizing the unpolished CGI in Zack Snyder’s Justice League, this really stands out and shows that the MCU really is ahead of the curve.

Seeing Sam also leaping in and out of planes at breakneck speeds, using his wings to avoid getting shot, fighting thugs, and then jumping up to chase them really shows why he may be the next Cap, an aerial version at least. He’s as fearless as ever, and as he soars through the sky, flying through crevasses and rock formations to the Star WarsTwisting and turning to avoid the missiles, it truly is an action spectacle that modern movie fans would have loved to see on the big screen.

The way he also uses Redwing as a fellow gunner is amazing too, creating a blast festival that Michael Bay fans would enjoy. The icing on the cake comes when you go from diving low and climbing high to having to take on some helicopters. As helicopters fire missiles at him, he takes a page from Iron Man when the fighter jets went after Tony Stark, and also the Guardians of the Galaxy who had to escape from the Sovereign, putting the next gear for the heat seekers to pursue. . all over.

And what it does is divert them to blow up LAF’s own airships as it goes through Batroc’s helicopter and takes Vasant out of it as everything explodes. It’s the kind of fireworks that War Machine would be proud of, and the most impressive thing is that Falcon does it with complete ease to show how he has evolved as a hero.

Directed by Kari Skogland, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier stars Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan, Emily VanCamp, Wyatt Russell, Noah Mills, Carl Lumbly, and Daniel Brühl. The series is currently airing on Disney +.
