    Captain America: The Winter Soldier is a tremendous piece of pop entertainment, smart and engaging and featuring a home run movie star lead performance by Chris Evans.

    This sequel is, by design, entirely absorbing and satisfying without being one whit memorable.

    Steve and the movie still fly high through plot twists and cool stunts.

    The movie does its duty. It's a reliable commodity, delivered efficiently and well, like pizza.

    It needs to seem cool enough that we want to watch it despite its obvious silliness, and viewed through that prism of canny analysis, the craftsmanship of “Winter Soldier” is first rate.

    The Winter Soldier is probably in the upper tier of Marvel pictures in terms of quality, but ultimately proves too muddled and frantic to match the heights of "The Avengers."

    Despite one or two moments of Venture Brothers-worthy fancy, the film is as by-the-numbers as any this series has ever offered.

    One of the best solo Marvel movies since Iron Man. Takes the stereotypical comic book movie and turns it into a spy thriller! The first Marvel movie where we get a really imposing villain. The Winter Soldier, when on screen felt just as dangerous as The Joker in The Dark Knight. Excellent movie! Expand

    After the atrocity that is the terribly written Iron Man 2 and 3 movies Captain America is a godsend! It's got a deep plot with many side characters and subplots and somehow manages to make each one interesting. It's nice to have a marvel movie that treats it's audience as intelligent comic book fans and less like autistic children (Iron man 3.) Expand

    Very good movie, best I've seen in a while. Comparable to Avengers really. Acting and Writing were both awesome. Could potentially be the movie of the year. Expand

    It may not be the best Marvel super hero film, but it is up there with the best of them in my opinion. I really enjoyed it. The production is great. The story is relevant without being ham fisted and the characters are interesting and very likeable.

    Is it a perfect movie? No, of course not. Does it deserve a 3.8 or a 5? Definitely not. Besides a few tropes and plot devices that raised an eyebrow slightly (but come on, it's a bloody super hero film) it's a very enjoyable show that I would happily watch again.

    Marvel are putting together a really consistent movie universe and bringing it together really nicely. I am happy to see it and look forward to their next film.

    Superhero movies are all the same to me as far as the plot goes. This one has better than average action and special effects. But in the end, you will forget most of the movie a couple of months from now. There is nothing new we haven't seen before to make it memorable. Expand
