Jonathan Lemmonsaid on Saturday, April 19, 2014 2:02:50 PMI was thoroughly blown away by The Winter Soldier! It not only surpasses the first movie (It was 2011 by the way, not 2009), but I would actually go far as to say it surpasses the Avengers as well, which we all know is saying something. I just loved the old fashioned feel to it. It really does feel like a nineteen seventies spy thriller. The story is the most complex of any past Marvel movie, Chris Evans is at his best as Captain America this time around. And the fight scenes between Captain America and The Winter Soldier are just jaw-dropping! Just when I thought Marvel would never top The Avengers, we are given a movie that not only redefines the comic book genre, but ten years from now, it will be regarded as one of the classic movies of the 2000 teens.
*****/5 See IT!!! Two Thumbs UP!!!
Jack.said on Monday, April 14, 2014 10:51:19 PMWhy do i get the feeling that Roaper underestimated Captain America. As a fan of comics. What always made Cap great was not his powers. But was because he stood up for principles. Even when those principles went against his own government. That is why i always loved the character. Sure hes a Goody Two Shoes. But hes a pretty bad ass Gooy Two Shoes.
Chris Etratasaid on Sunday, April 06, 2014 10:58:15 PMI thought this was the second best Marvel Cinematic Universe film behind only Avengers. Where would you put it compared to the other MCU films Mr Roeper?
DCWhatthesaid on Saturday, April 05, 2014 4:46:52 PMI didn't expect to enjoy Cap 2, this much. Great dialog about important issues, especially relevant in this decade. Some of the coolest hand-to-hand fighting scenes ever.
I hated Evans as the Torch. And thought of the first movie as mere supporting biographical material for the Avengers.
But this one knocked it out of the ballpark. It was long, yes, but didn't bother my attention span in the least.
The one thing I forgot to do, was sit through the credits at the end. Will have to catch it a second time on DVD, with pleasure.
