    Captain America: The Winter Soldier is every rousing, whup-ass thing you want in an escapist adventure. show more

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    Has the usual overlong running time, the half-hearted feints in the direction of human feeling and the obligatory action sequences that are big without being either exciting or particularly legible. show more

    Claudia Puig USA Today

    An often breathlessly exciting action thriller told with humor and intelligence. show more

    What makes "The Winter Soldier" so enjoyable, though, and what will make it so profitable, is its emotional bandwidth — all the vivid, nuanced life lived by its characters in between their frenzied escapades. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    The problem with Captain America: The Winter Soldier is that there's too much going on: the Marvel Universe stuff, the WikiLeaks-ish paranoia stuff, the video game-ish CG visual effects stuff, the epic John Woo-ish everybody-pointing-a-weapon-at-everybody-else face-off stuff. show more

    Parents, take note: For all its heart, this is a tougher, more morally complex movie than its predecessors. Young kids carrying their miniversions of Cap’s famous shield may be in for a jolt. show more

    Todd McCarthy The Hollywood Reporter

    For sheer plotting and audience involvement, this is a notch above any of the other Avengers-feeding Marvel entries, the one that feels most like a real movie rather than a production line of ooh-and-ahh moments for fanboys. show more

    Captain America: The Winter Soldier neatly and entertainingly puts into motion some big changes in the Marvel universe, while still sticking to its own charms — no easy feat, but one fit for a hero. show more

    Richard Roeper Chicago Sun-Times

    Co-directors Joe and Anthony Russo and the team of screenwriters have fashioned a story with just the right balance of superhero fun, nods to the greater Marvel Universe and genuine dramatic tension. show more

    What it comes down to is the difference between spectacle and craftsmanship. The Winter Soldier has plenty of the former – every dollar of its estimated $170-million (U.S.) budget is onscreen – but it’s also got an intricate dramatic and thematic structure holding everything in place. show more

    Wow wow wow. Most action packed movie that I have seen in a very very long time. If I could give this movie 100 stars I would. Definitely need to watch this movie. Get to the theater before it is gone. Your big screen tv won't do it justice. A++++++

    If your thing is action figures and special effects this movie does the trick. Not to mention all the talent is easy on the eyes.

    Where I gave the "First Avenger" a score of perhaps 80, This story-line has surpassed the original in numerous ways. "Cap's" personality is much more believable. "Black Widow" seems more human, "Fury" obviously more vulnerable. "Winter Soldier" rates a 95 in my book. Accolades to all involved.
