Once again Marvel fails to distinguish its boyscout hero by not even touching on the profound sense of loneliness a man out of time would feel, but that's more than okay here. It's difficult to overstate the impact of these action sequences which are not just shot & choreographed for maximum clarity & power, but they're as compelling & thrilling as those in the first Matrix. Story-wise it wisely plays Cap's whitebread virtuousness off shadier returning favorites & several black & female heroes.

According to boxofficemojo.com, Cobie Smulders is in two of the top three highest domestic grossing films of 2014. There's no need for alarm, but that is literally what my suicide note would read.

One of those unicorn-like sequels that manages to surpass the original by quite a margin, this crosses popcorn entertainment with paranoid seventies-ish conspiracy thriller (it even has Robert Redford in it), and it's a great deal more intelligent and relevant than any of the other Marvel flicks. The seemingly unstoppable Winter Soldier is a worthy foil for our patriotic shield bearer who in Falcon literally gets a wingman. Also, ScarJo had some funny lines. It's Top-10 superhero movie material.

A big step up from Cap's first movie, this is a top-notch conspiracy thriller (though the main villain's identity is obvious very early on) with great action and character development for all involved. Lots of fun.

Concerned with the past and just how far Rodgers can physically fall and still be ok. Cap seems to be the wrong hero for a tech-oriented espionage thriller but that's the point - he mirrors the villain as a military asset who lacks the historical context to question the mission or faction. They're like, both the Winter Soldier dude I'm telling you. It's all a conspiracy. The JFK bullet left an illuminati chemtrail that leads right to Nick Fury as long as your calculation assumes a flat earth.

Possibly Marvel's most grounded comic book film to date. The "realistic" violence was surprising but well choreographed. It's like Bourne with supers minus the Paul Greengrass'ish epileptic fast cuts. The politics are more nuanced than your standard comic film and addresses government spying, data leaks, erosion of personal freedom, authoritarian national security agencies, as well as setting up the dubious future premise of putting powerful superheroes at the forefront of mankind.

Marvel definitely know their shit, but it doesn't change the fact that CA imo is a pretty uninteresting super hero. And since all the Marvel stories now take place after The Avengers, why don't Steve Rogers just call his green, iron and demi god friends? Or are they not interested in keeping world peace unless they are the main character? I know, thats not how it works, but it would make sense... And the 3D - f#%$~g useless and at times annoyingly disturbing!

Marvel continues their winning streak, this time defying the laws of physics by making a honest-to-god good Captain America movie. In more ways than one, it's the most mature film to come out the Avengers series, even if it ultimately climaxes in the usual OTT mayhem.

It's rare to see action sequences this well choreographed, and rarer still to see them presented with such clarity of composition. For the Russos, long-time veterans of critically-beloved TV sitcoms, this is punching their ticket to the big leagues in a bold way. Marvel's finally found a happy balance in telling a self-contained story while acknowledging previous (and laying pieces for future) adventures. Mackie is a killer addition to the crew, and the conspiracy plot is full of clever touches.

You know you have a really good movie on your hands, when your only complaint is 'Why did they call it the Winter Soldier? He's hardly in it. But on the other hand, naming it after the actual enemy would have been a spoiler, so I guess that makes sense." And some of the action scenes were kinda dark and made it hard to see what was going on. But like I said, a really good movie. Also upping the score for having awesome female and non-white characters who actually do stuff and kick ass.

Damn good. Improves on the original quite a bit, with a plot that doesn't stop moving long enough for you to think about anything questionable. Whole cast does well, Anthony Mackie's Falcon was especially good. The ending has big implications for the future of the MCU, which leaves you leaving the theater pumped for what will come next. Bring on the Guardians, the Twins and Ultron!

I approached this sequel with tempered expectations, having been unimpressed with CA's first outing, but I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this film. Not so much an inconsequential entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as a perfectly capable standalone film, TWS combines exciting set pieces and engaging characters in the form of a slick, political action thriller. And they even managed to work in a Pulp Fiction reference, kudos.

The latest issue inside the "Marvel Cinematic Universes" is a "Captain America" story that serves as "The Avengers:1.5" despite being a surprisingly entertaining stand-alone movie. This spy thriller feels more a kin to a "Jason Bourne" or "Mission Impossible" movie than the standard superhero fair. Although the film's plot about S.H.I.E.L.D is more important for future films it services as a device, alongside the "Winter Solider", for "Captain America" to explore his own truth as a hero.

This movie handled a ton of focus characters intelligently, was edited tightly, made a good argument against intelligence overreach, had a deep and powerful friendship between a man and a woman with no romantic tension, was edited tightly, and basically juggled half a dozen different aspects of making a movie worth watching like it was no big deal. Good. Stuff.

So not only is Captain America NOT the Winter Soldier, the Winter Soldier himself is barely in the movie. It starts out great, with Sam Jackson's action scene being a highlight balanced by interesting character drama. Then the plot is unveiled and it turns into dumb action schlock. I'm seriously way more interested in Steve Rogers adjusting to the 21st century than how many ways he can throw his shield. Every Marvel movie seems to be this way, and I'm sick of it.

Who'd have figured, a big-budget superhero film about a dude named CAPTAIN AMERICA that is blatantly leftist, attacking drone warfare and the national security state? And that political commentary is neatly packaged in an exciting action film that manages to bring the necessary amount of weight to its proceedings without totally losing sight of its roots as comic book fare. To my continued surprise, Captain America is the best thing Marvel has going for it; even Iron Man takes a backseat.

As the Marvel formula begins to feel a bit tried and tested, this genre-bending entry, featuring the once "least interesting Avenger", shakes the stiffness off and presents a 70s paranoia-esque spy thriller with enough twists to back it up. You still get giant airships crashing too though, not to worry.

More thoroughly competent superhero shenanigans from Marvel. I liked the cast, it was nicely shot, the action was handled well and the dialogue was fine, if sometimes a bit forced. Perhaps the mash of action/plot/characters/themes got a bit messy at times, but this is solid fare. These are good films, and I'd like to see more in the series, but I'm starting to feel a bit like I've seen it all before.

The Winter Solider blew my expectations out of the water and I absolutely loved it. I thought the first film was a mediocre addition to Phase 1 but this sequel is the best of the Phase 2 instalments to follow The Avengers. Evans gives his best Cap performance yet and Johansson, Jackson, Mackie & Redford are all strong too. The set pieces are superb and plot wise it has the most content to date. I loved the spy and espionage tone and I am excited by the direction that the MCU is going in.

The ONLY thing that holds this back is that Cap is... kinda boring. It has nothing to do with how Evans is playing him, it's the character itself. Despite that, this movie is TONS of fun. I skipped the 3D this time; heard it wasn't great. The Winter Soldier is a great character and Sebastian Stan is perfect in that role. ScarJo continues to add depth & substance to Black Widow. Though I'm critical of Cap, his relationship with Winter Soldier reeled me in big-time. Among my favorite MCU films.

My favorite of all of the mediocre Marvel Studios movies. SLJ kills a bunch of cops, the movie doesn't pause to explain why all of Cap's friends are women and black dudes, bonecrunching DTV-ish action and the funniest cameo one of these movies is likely to have, ever.

A miraculous superhero film, from the perspective that for the most part, it is hardly a superhero film at all. The acting and fight choreography were magnificent - with a few exterior action scenes that felt like De Palma got his cojones back. The only thing I can negatively say its direction, is that it's a remake of Metal Gear Solid - distractingly so. But since I've been wanting a MGS movie for a decade I'll look past it this time.

I don't have a lot more to add to what others liked about this. I can mostly repeat how it's pretty grounded (for a Marvel movie), has well-executed action scenes and a story that's more than just an excuse for colorful entertainment. This Marvel movie actually pushes the cinematic universe forward, and I'm genuinely interested where all of this is going. If you enjoyed this, I can really recommend Ed Brubaker's entire run of the Cap comic.

Can simply be viewed as a very fine, and actually suprisingly violent action movie. Credit also has to go to the Russo's for getting the most out of The Avengers most dreary lead character in a way Joe Johnson never did. In the mix, there's also some fairly effective, if clunky, Marvel Universe politics, an interesting villian, and some good character development. It's almost a shame the Russo's will be directing Captain America 3, instead of one of the MCU's more compelling protagonists.

Still one of my top five MCU films and one of my favorite modern action movies. The action, car chases, and choreography are superb, and it would further develop Steve Rogers as a character. It was nice to see him adjusting to the real world, and I really enjoyed Black Widow and Samuel L. Jackson's performance as Nick Fury. Feels a bit like a 90s thrill-ride and I mean that as a compliment. I don't have any real complaints about this movie. Acting, direction, and writing are all solid.

This may be the best, big super hero movie I have seen since The Dark Knight. The acting is all on point, and it balances a kind of Bourne Identity, on-the-run action plot well with compelling bits of characterization and humor. For someone that hates Captain America in the comics and wasn't that impressed by the first movie, I was completely sold on this film the entire time and am very excited for the next installment.

I understand I'm in a minority here but I liked the first Cap picture better. Sure it was nostalgic and campy but at least it provided a little depth to the comic book genre. Winter Soldier is a much more standard comic book film with all the standard superhero cliches (electronic percussion soundtrack, shaky cam cinematography and martial arts-based fight choreography, etc) all placed in the Bourne universe.

I thought I was SO COOL when, while watching Cap'n, I though to myself, "Can't wait to write the Criticker review where I make allusions to '70s spy movies and overall sense of paranoia. Boy, that'll make me look smart!" Then I get here and realize I'm about the 8,000th person to make the same observation. Ok, well, still, I appreciate the directors striving for more than CGI whack-a-bad guy shoot-em-ups, and succeeding. I'm almost completely burnt on super hero movies but this one stands above.

I was a bit disappointed. The Captain America character just felt out of place in the conspiracy thriller genre. The whole plot feels so much bigger than Cap himself. The supporting characters didn't do much for me, either. Well-made, looks nice, the action and effects are decent. It's actually quite brave, too, with what it does with the MCU. I think what the film was largely missing for me was fun. It's still a solid entry in the franchise. Just not one I liked as much as the others.

This is probably my favourite in the Marvel Series Extravaganza, or at least in close competition with the Avengers. This movie really is a thrill ride from start to finish that keeps the action going, while giving itself some time to breathe throughout. Scarjo deserves her own movie (I have my reasons). My only complaint is sometimes they make you think Cap is in danger, but (and not really anyones fault) it just doesn't work since you know he'll be ok and will survive the movie.

Mediocre at best, but still way better than the first one. I just don't get one thing. There's such a big crisis regarding the S.H.I.E.L.D, such a save-the-world issue at hand and they don't even think about going to Iron Man or Hulk or at least Hawkeye, but choose to rely on Anthony Mackie's character (whom Cpt. America just met while jogging)? Why? 'Cause this is a Captain America movie and not an Avengers one? Isn't that ridiculously silly? Anyone? :)

Probably the most important Marvel movie to date due to the conclusion and how it effects the rest of the universe. The conspiracy story line is really well told and I would say this overshadows the first movie. I would have liked a bit more back story for the Falcon character but this is my only critism. Excellent addition to the Marvel movie universe!

For some reason I can't explain the image of Captain America doing laps around the National Mall fills me with a lot of joy. It was pretty much worth seeing the movie just for the opening few scenes.

The world's most boring superhero rides elevators, as Hollywood warns about our surveillance age. To call it intelligent would be an overstatement, but at least it tries, so eh. To square up against captain snooze fest we have Robert Redford, the only living actor capable of less facial expression than Liam Neeson. I found this strangely befitting. To summarize: A grueling romance subplot aside I didn't see a single scene that I wish I hadn't, nor a single scene that I ever need to watch again.

It's telling, though, that for the movie's climactic fight, Captain America swipes his old World War II-era uniform from the Smithsonian and dons it for battle. Forget the murk and uncertainty: Cap wants to be a red-white-and-blue hero. And he's left standing in the end--standing for everything he is, perhaps everything we'd want to be. It's hard to be good in his world, just as it's hard to be good in ours. (pluggedin.com)

The Russo Brother's take on the the Captain America character not only keeps with the same beats as the first, but improves in every category. The Winter Soldier keeps the campy and grounded feel the first one brought, all while bringing on a spy/espionage feel that made the movie that more compelling. A combination of a excellent story not too cluttered with characters, well done action and affects, and a script that keeps the same Marvel tone that everyone loves. The Russo's hit a homer.

Another slickly competent production from Marvel. There are some problems. The freedom vs. security political subplot is written so broad and simplistic a 7-year-old can grasp it, and the movie pulls a "no j/k not really" on arguably its bolded plot development. Still, as an action flick it satisfies. Great fight choreography. Great use of Cap's shield as a weapon. Elevator fight was very cool; very nice use of space. Abed cameo was rockin'.

I've got a strong bias towards Captain America, so I probably would have liked this movie even if it was schlock. Luckily for us, it was pretty damn good. I enjoyed the action (and was surprised that it was the Russo's first action venture), but everything outside of that was the main selling point for the movie. I saw the movie with a friend, and he said "I was honestly just waiting for the action to get over so I could see everything else". Easily one of the best Marvel efforts.

What a 2014 for Marvel. This is tied for my favorite Marvel Cinematic Universe film. The humor was well-written but not overdone, the twist was genuinely a surprise, there were touching moments (Cap's visit with Peggy Carter), a wonderful supporting cast, and so on.

Marvel takes the Iron Man 1 plot formula and applies it to the Cap. The results are a VAST improvement for this hero. The most significant element is, of course, the action; in a word, incredible. Marvel has some talented choreographers and they're work is apparent here. The action is largely grounded and gritty vs. the CG frenzy of other Marvel films. The plot is as derivative and cliche as any other superhero film, though I admire the valiant, though weak, attempt at a political commentary.

While it has slightly more on its mind than its predecessors -- politically and intellectually, at least -- Captain America: The Winter Soldier is still primarily an action movie for fans of superhero films. It doesn't do enough with its high-minded aspirations to make much of an impact in that respect, and it wastes more time than it should both with those and with secondary characters who add very little, including the titular Winter Soldier, who is very underused.

Captain America is a difficult concept to adapt; here they tried large scale conspiracy angle (this kind of infiltration really happened in Turkey a while back, so, unfortunately, it is not that crazy) and although it is not really bad; it is not very good either. The action around Winter Soldier is good; but his stoicism that works very well in comic medium is an impediment to character development in cinema. It is rather a weak link in MCU.

The driving force is really Steve Rogers's virtuousness, and it's not just his patriotism, sense of duty, politeness, and desire to serve. He has a way of connecting with people wherever they are, a disarming sense of compassion and comprehension that tells people he's on their side. This interpersonal talent makes him a quick, accurate judge of character that's as valuable an asset as his super strength and speed. It makes me eager to see more.

"The Winter Soldier" is a huge step up from the slightly lackluster debut of Captain America and overall ranks as one of the best Avengers-related outings.

The directors expertly place the Captain in the middle of a intelligence/political thriller and watch him wreak glorious super-powered violence. Comparable to the Dark Knight for its wit, brutality and genre competence. Chris Evans is perhaps still miscast - his "little boy lost in time" looks rob him of any real moral authority, and Scarlett Johansson and Cobie Smulders are badly miscast - clogging up the screen. The outstanding direction not only exceeds the writing, but makes up for it.

I called bullshit on so many things happening in this movie, that there were moments where I thought I was watching Iron Sky (bonus: both movies have about the same level of realism in their depiction of Nazis). That said, the action is more than decent, and the visuals are great as usual. But we've seen it all before. The plot isn't really as deep or smart as some people make it out to be, and in my opinion, this movie failed to make the character of Captain America interesting.

I didn't like Captain America before. But his history/friendship with Winter Soldier appealed to me and made me feel more for the Captain than I ever have. Aside from that, it's a fun action movie with a bunch of twists and turns, big explosions and huge set pieces. That's essentially what we want from a movie like this, and it delivers pretty hard on that premise. It helps that the Winter Soldier is awesome. The jokes mostly work as well.

Good punching & interesting narration about American self-consciousness. It's a bit silly and blatant even for such a popular style and suffers from the Marvel syndrome of cramming in too many characters and using too much time setting up sequels. However it does have some weight compared to many of these blockbusters (including the previous one) in both style & substance. Could use some variation in locations but is pretty enjoyable visually. Some good stunts & the character stuff is ok.

Marvel has definitely mastered the art of making a movie whose only goal is to entertain. Plus, the surprisingly and uncharacteristically cynical premise elevates the sequel over the somewhat boringly patriotic original Captain America. Especially when the damning take on the modern political and military situation contrasts so well with a good-hearted hero who happens to be seven decades out of place. Bonus points for the subtle and genuinely excellent Pulp Fiction reference.

cap'n murica is a weird character. he's arguably one of the most boring heroes of marvel, obviously outdated by today's values, on the other hand, they put so much love into his films, what could have been a terrible corny movie becomes a thrilling ride, and mr. rogers becomes a likable dude. on a side note, sun shines, grass grows and ScarJo is hot.

Easily the best Marvel movie thus far, somehow having a self-contained action-packed plot accessible to both fans and newcomers as well as having pivotal consequences for the extended Marvel movie universe. The pace is tight, and the action is better choreographed than the erratic melee found in Avengers.

2014 was a breakthrough year for Marvel in terms of storytelling, with this and X-Men DoFP being the most well developed films yet from the studio. TWS from start to finish presses on with a sense of purpose rooted in its clever political espionage plot that branches nicely into levels of tastefully executed superhero ridiculousness. If Marvel can maintain this balance of comic excitement and sophisticated execution I might actually be on board for the "Golden Age" of superhero movies.

A solid follow up to the Captains first dud, the action in this one is fast paced and well choreographed. The level of involvement of other characters (non superhero) was very nice as was The Winter Soldier and his backstory. Solid writing helps The Captain fight for the rights of the people and helps tie this one into modern day politics. Looking forward to the next one.

A lot stronger than Cap 1 and filled to the brim with amazing set-pieces and a good and not-shit-paced plot. My only qualm was the Mr. House'd Zola spilling the beans like an hour in. Can any villain resist doing that? It's annoying.

Whooshingly exciting and kinetic, with the best-directed, most thrilling to watch action setpieces Marvel has yet given us. It could be argued that this movie's massive scope makes it so that Cap's story seems almost dwarfed among the larger, SHIELD-centric elements, but I was so entertained that it didn't matter. Well-paced, unfailingly smart, energetically performed; another big winner from the Marvel crew.

This Marvel franchise is a machine, and it's a pretty big one. This installment is definitely better and more entertaining than the first. Evans is more "human" and his two sidekicks are good company. The Winter Soldier is a solid act, but not near as interesting as Thor's super villain, Loke. I only have one big hurdle with this movie: Why does Captain America not call out to his avenging friends? I can understand why, from a producers perspective, but it bothered me a lot! - Good

Easily the best of the Marvel movies. I honestly really loved this. Of the whole Marvel Cinematic Universe, this is the one that comes the closest to transcending its own genre and getting taken seriously as its own film. Just remarkably well-put-together on almost every level, and the depth and distinctly darker tone than previous entries is much appreciated.

Legit surprised with how much I enjoyed this film. I don't like the comics and wasn't a huge fan of the first movie but this one kicked quite a bit of ass. Twas nice to see Captain America actually fucking fight. Hurrah!

By far better than the first film in the series. This stands up there with the Iron Man franchise, putting Captain America where he rightly deserves to be in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and breathing new life into a series of films that were beginning to grow stale. I actually really liked the Falcon character, and glad they introduced him in the film, though lament the lack of Hawkeye, who rightly deserved to be in the fray.

I'm not a huge Captain America fan but this was good. Probably the strongest story out of all the Avenger's films. It's hard to create stakes in these movies since you know it's a huge franchise and there is no chance they aren't going to save the day (especially in these individual films) but this did about as good of a job as possible.

Captain America is a movie with *A THING TO SAY* while still being an entirely awesome action superhero movie. Greatness.

I liked that they essentially tried to turn Captain America into Jason Bourne, even as they keep his essential goodness intact. Thing I'm grateful for: The filmmakers mine the fish-out-of-water proceedings for pathos rather than cheap laughs. Cameo by last installment's villain is great (as someone who occasionally works with big data, I'm tickled by the fact that the main villain is for all intents and purposes big data). Cap continues to provide the best material in the Marvel franchise so far

An improvement from the first one, Cap was good but now he's got company that are interesting as well. Black Widow is exciting along with Jackson and Redford, Winter Soldier certainly feels like a threatening character were as Red Skull was just comical. The action sequences are improved by a lot although all the new modern machinery can get unexciting in the end. Resparkled my belief in the upcoming Marvel movies.

It's surprisingly fun. I laughed several times. It delivers plenty of action, and yet for a superhero movie, it's rather grounded and personal. This is its main strength and why it rises above its prequel as well as many other movies in this genre these past years. On the top of my head, Captain Rogers feels like a cross between Jason Bourne and Batman... which for me is a good thing. It's nice to see that a big expensive blockbuster sequel doesn't have to be shallow (all things considered).

Now there's a pleasant surprise. Captain America himself is still pretty dull, but he sure knows how to kick ass in this equally entertaining and intelligent spy thriller disguised as a superhero movie. Marvel's best?

The best Marvel movie to date! A very solid cold-war spy thriller crossed with a summer blockbuster action flick. Good performances all around and a tight script full of great lines. "On your left."

Quite possibly the best once since The Avengers, if not the best one outside of the Avengers. Time will be the ultimate judge of that.
