'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' - Nick Fury Attacked

While The Winter Soldier boasts its fair share of memorable action sequences, it’s the close-quarters ones that really end up making an impression. The attack on Nick Fury’s vehicle comes out of nowhere and never lets up, as Samuel L. Jackson’s character finds himself cornered with no escape. The S.H.I.E.L.D. tech and bulletproof glass puts a nice spin on the “vehicle attacked” action cliché, but the brilliance of the sequence is how adeptly the tension is balanced. At this point in the film, the audience isn’t quite sure who the bad guy is and why Fury is being ambushed, and as the sequence begins to stack the cards against Fury’s favor, we slowly grow to realize the S.H.I.E.L.D. director may not make it out of here unscathed.
