The Falcon and the Winter Soldier: Season 1 Reviews

November 10, 2021
Although the series got off to a slow start, the adventures of Captain America's best friends Falcon/Sam Wilson and Winter Soldier/Bucky Barnes have picked up considerably as the action/espionage series continues.

The show feels like a really extended movie with a bad villain. It depends too much on the legacy of Steve Rogers with really interesting secondary characters that try to live up to him. [Full review in Spanish]

Once again using its Avengers B-team to both focus on larger issues while setting up future films. If you still haven't seen the Disney+ drama -which aired its season finale on April 23- it's time to fly in.

"That The Falcon and the Winter Soldier works at all is mainly down to Mackie and Stan."

Why must Sam, or anyone for that matter, don a nation's name and symbols in order to be a fitting hero? The show never provides a satisfactory answer.

This series does a fantastic job of connecting the MCU to an intriguing new plot line designed especially for television.

I don't think this series will re-invent the Marvel wheel or come with a clever new bent like we saw with WandaVision but it should satisfy Marvel fans.

The most cinematic I've ever seen for a TV show and quite frankly, it's wasted on a 52-inch screen.

Falcon and the Winter Soldier showed it's possible to actually have a black lead in a show and not be tokenistic about it.

I needed a Marvel thesaurus to watch this show. I loved the Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan team-up but wanted a bit more in terms of the super-soldier status of Captain America

It seems that Marvel is taking giant and safe steps to get the audience to forget Steve Rogers and Tony Stark. [Full Review in Spanish]

Of course, the outcome of 'Falcon and the Winter Soldier' has many more implications, although the most interesting comes from what the world would look like in one where everyone was super. [Full Review in Spanish]

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier attempts to move past the MCU's abysmal track record on women.

An incredibly frustrating story that never quite brings all of its ideas home.

It feels at times like two different shows and not everything always worked for me, but I still mostly enjoyed watching it.

While not flawless by any means The Falcon and The Winter Soldier showed us some major spectacle and some really interesting, grounded story telling.

It's far from a perfect show, but it had moments of emotion and connection that have often been lacking in the MCU as a whole.
April 26, 2021
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier may have struggled with defining its tone... But its commitment to the overarching theme of American heroes and the dangers of exceptionalism has been unwavering.
April 26, 2021
Falcon and the Winder Soldier proves to be a more mature take on a story full of characters living in a grey area, so it is up to the audience to decide where to draw the line regarding the moral and ethical conflicts presented by the series.

Since the conclusion of 'Endgame,' each Phase 4 project has dealt with loss, recovery, or filling the void in some way. The latest MCU entrant is no different.
