This is another Marvel One-Shot, actually a pretty long one at 15 minutes, starring Hayley Atwell as Agent Carter. When she is sick of the work at her desk and wants some field action, this is exactly what she gets. Apparently, she gets convincing enough to be employed in Washington to run S.H.I.E.L.D. shortly afterward, very much to the dismay of her boss played by Bradley Whitford. Apart from Atwell, the most prominent cast member is probably Dominic Cooper, who appears, just like her in theatrical releases from the Marvel universe in recent years. Atwell also got her own show this year where she stars as the character she portrays here. The director of these 15 minutes is the executive producer of "The Avengers" and this is not the only Marvel One-Shot he worked on. Same goes for the writer, who came up with scripts for four of these. I personally wasn't too impressed here with this short movie. I enjoy these additions to the big cinema releases at half the running time of this one here. 8 Minutes really should be enough and this one goes considerably longer and thus also lacks in terms of script quality in my opinion. It's all pointless action really and the short scene about bikinis during the ending credits was probably better and more entertaining than everything before. The Captain America references weren't too bad either, but in terms of Carter as a hero on her own, it's a definite nay for me. Not recommended.
