It knocks down a lot of the infrastructure the previous films had created, and it does so in a way that feels organic and refreshing for the Marvel world at large.

Marvel has made what amounts to the biggest-budgeted paranoid thriller of all time.

'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' delivers the superhero movie goods, but it does so with a grin and a wink, and that seems more and more like the right way to approach these things.

An excellent sequel, filled with lots of action and suspense. [Full review in Spanish]

Its heroes are weird, broken people, its villains facades of prosperity and authority, and the stakes conversely high - the fate of the world - and deeply personal.

Marvel should take what Captain America: The Winter Soldier does and use it as the rubric to follow with subsequent phases.

Screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, who also wrote Captain America: The First Avenger, continue to make Cap the most interesting Avenger outside of Iron Man.

Cap might be a pumped up, costumed action hero, but in the hands of the Brothers Russo, he's also just human enough to remain interesting.

As much as I sat amused (occasionally highly amused) for 136 minutes, I never felt particularly engrossed or even all that thrilled. The stakes were too low.

This follow-up to the bionic Captain's World War II introduction in 2011's Captain America: The First Avenger hits all the right buttons as it speeds along with another dip into comic book Armageddon.

In the absence of definitive work done in our heroing couple, a pair rich in fibers but relegated to broad strokes and easy quips in this turn, most of it amounts to a fairly good spy thriller, not an ace-in-the-whole neo-superhero masterpiece.

It has a charismatic hero, inspired action choreography and Robert Redford as a living signifier of the days when Hollywood thrillers tried to make you think about stuff between shootouts. Also, it's really funny.
| Original Score: 4/5

Unfortunately, with so many internal commitments to the franchise, this isn't a Captain America movie as much as a slice of Marvel pie in which Steve appears.

Chris Evans is back as Captain America, powered by super-serum and a sense of loss.

This is the most political, complicated Marvel movie to date.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10

The Winter Soldier is all-American entertainment, with a hero enlightened to the fact that while he may not be able to trust his American government's leaders, he ultimately represents not them but the American ideals of truth and justice.

For all the failings on display, the mighty Marvel machine rolls along.

Sometimes a film leaves you with a big, dumb grin on your face. The Marvel blockbuster Captain America: The Winter Soldier... is such an item.

I agree that this is an enjoyable film, but if you ask if I'm excited to see a sequel, my honest answer is it wouldn't bother me if they never made another one.

With Chris Evans charismatic as ever in the lead, and a good supporting cast, The Winter Soldier is a welcome addition to Marvel's ever-expanding canon.
