Because I went to see it after work tonight, and it really upset me - crying for forty-five minutes straight upset, which is way out of the ordinary for me and an action movie.

Cos, I mean, it's a great movie. I love Sam the Falcon, I love Natasha and her sense of humour and desire to set Steve up with someone. I even loved Steve, who I'm not a huge fan of. When the police car hit Fury, I actually jumped - totally didn't see it coming. I'm so thrilled that he lived, and I loved the hints of his relationship with Natasha. I loved Natasha sneaking in as someone else, I loved Hill getting them free, I loved that it was funny, I loved the strike team at the beginning (though less so when they turned out to be bad guys) and I loved the real SHIELD agents standing up at the end.

But... the whole thing with SHIELD being infiltrated by Hydra, and Sitwell being Hydra (where the hell did that come from?! I was so sure it was going to turn out he was a double-agent for SHIELD and not really dead) makes me really sad and I don't quite get why. Maybe because I read a lot of fic where SHIELD was the first safe place for people like Natasha and Clint and now it's all gone - I mean, Natasha basically said that. Maybe because I can't figure out how Agents of SHIELD works in line with what just happened, and what happens to all the SHIELD agents who weren't Hydra.

But yeah - talk to me about it if you've seen it, before I have to explain to my work colleagues why I'm so upset over a movie.
