Captain America: The Winter Soldier Reviews


It delivers enough bang for your buck, and then some.In keeping with Marvel tradition, there's a steady stream of clever one-liners and witticisms, including Black Widow's repeated teasing of our earnest superhero. But the film's real strength is Chris Evans' robust performance as Captain America, who finally emerges a fully realized character, worthy of his place in the Marvel universe.

Raja Sen


All in all, this is a crackling ride -- and one helluva Chevrolet commercial, it must be said. It's genuinely surprising, it's just jingoistic enough to not hurt, it moves the Marvel cinematic universe forward a great deal, it has a solid ensemble cast, it has many an in-joke (Community fans who prefer Troy over Abed might learn that the biggest lesson is to stay in school) and it finally gives us a Captain America worth celebrating.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier has verve and nerve. It’s popcorn entertainment, in the best sense of the word, especially if you see the film in IMAX 3D like I did.


With the script no different from the dime a dozen superhero sagas and a host of mediocre lines, the film is a big budget entertainer with almost no recall value. It’s worth a watch, especially since it lets the viewer know that there is more to come, in terms of sequels. Will it hold on its own? Unless you’re a big Captain America fan, that’s a big No.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier does its best to be an out-of-the-box thriller, but eventually ends up feeling a bit factory manufactured and slightly lacking in that creative edge (which Chris Nolan's Dark Knight series had the perfect dose of).A must-watch for Marvel fans, Captain America has action-packed entertainment that may leave you thinking about the direction the world is heading in.


While Romanoff adds some playful sex appeal, Captain America is a lot more aggressive in this outing as he takes on the Winter Soldier (Stan) and increasingly uses his shield as an offensive weapon. Rogers might not have Batman's toys, Tony Stark's wisecracks or Superman's strength, but he is the most 'human'. This ranks among the finest in the super-hero genre.

Overall the film is by far one of Marvel's best films, the cast delivers a strong and engaging performance and the movie will definitely be enjoyed by comic book fans and non-fans alike.

The chases and attacks are magnificent. The special effects make the film what it is, a magical experience. The Winter Soldier is an action-packed entertainer, indeed a must watch!

For those who were looking forward to this avenger, there is plenty to cheer about and if you are going to watch the film, make sure you wait till the absolute last credit has rolled.

The film is very good, and Marvel’s confidence proves it – they’re unwilling to move the release date of the third film, which coincides with the Batman-Superman movie. It’s Marvel vs DC, and after watching this movie, I can confirm that Marvel is winning. So bring it on.

Troy Ribeiro


Though the film has a few thoughtless plot holes that could excavate logical flaws, the director brothers, Anthony and Joe Russo have taken great pains to make this film distinct and far superior to the 2011 released, "Captain America: The First Avenger" or any other Marvel Franchises.Overall, Captain America: The Winter Soldier would appeal only to Marvel Fans.

Juhi Matta


All things considered, Captain America: The Winter Soldier is a wonderful addition to the Marvel franchise. It amplifies everything good about Captain America: The First Avenger and gets rid of the negative parts. The film combines the periodic element of its predecessor with a modern touch, making it one of the strongest films Marvel has released so far.

Jake Coyle

So while ‘The Winter Soldier’ succeeds as finely engineered merchandise built to be crowd-pleasing entertainment, for moviegoers and shareholder alike, it has a shelf life that won't last much past its running time.

It's hard to not have fun watching a film like Captain America: The Winter Soldier on a gigantic IMAX screen, which virtually transports you into the middle of the action. With a plot that attempts to be relevant - what with the current scenario of worldwide electronic espionage - and a neat little cast that has a few welcome additions to the previous film, it keeps you entertained for the most.

Danish Bagdadi


Easily one of the best movies to come out of Marvel, has enough humour and heart along with all the blockbuster elements that make you love a good superhero movie.

    'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' is a rare, fine suoerhero film which has action and flare in an array of a colour palette which doesn't try dumb and looks real and to the point. Chris Evans establishes himself finly after a boring outing as the interesting Steve Rogers, to an extent that now, he is my favourite MCU Superhero.
    Evans has worked a lot on Captain America. He unleashes every charge, every unmistakeably clumsy shot and eventually, each emotion with grandeur of the action. Scarlett Johansson's Natasha Romanoff is interesting- Black Widow's finest portrayal she certainly is, frame-to-frame brave, cut-to-cut sexy.
    All-in-all, 'The Winter Soldier' is a solid, brilliant film.
    But sadly, the second half is just too long, and the lines are actually somewhat mediocre at there. It definitely marred down the spirit.
    But in no ways is this film a dazzling only piece. No ways does it not offer abundant fun. And that, I expect from a superhero film.

    "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" Directed by Russo Brothers is suspenseful and politically astute movie full of adventure and is the best after Avengers and Iron man.This is the first Marvel Studios movie since the original Iron Man that really stands on its own.With Chris Evans charismatic as ever in the lead, and a good supporting cast, its a movie that is in the best sense of the word, a Marvel.

    Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier. Sometime it does not matter much if your leading superhero is not throwing one liners one after another like Iron Man or has enormous amount of power like Thor or has delicious anger issues like Hulk, because Captain America is our pure old school hero who will talk no non sense and won't accept lies and at the same time he is irresistibly good looking and carries his shield like a medal for himself. All this provide Captain America a distinct identity in Marvel Cinematic Universe. To balance the fun, beautiful Scarlett Johnson playing agent Natasha, her boss Nick Fury played enjoyably by Samuel L. Jackson and loyal sidekick to captain played by charming Anthony Mackie provide enough jokes. To complete the story, we have a ruthless mercenary The Winter Soldier who is amazing with the mask but surprisingly average without the mask. Movie takes its own sweet time before starting the action in full blow when Nick Fury is attacked by the evils. Action scenes are full of well edited man to man fights and climax is overblown much in the lines of The Avengers. I am going with fantastic 8 out of 10 for Captain America: The Winter Soldier. It is a blast for MCU fans and must try for superhero lovers.
