"Summer popcorn movies are hereby put on notice to get cracking. 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' is every rousing, whup-ass thing you want in an escapist adventure." - Rolling Stone

"[Joe and Anthony Russos'] 'Winter Soldier' delivers the requisite pyrotechnics, brightly comic banter, and future-sequel groundwork without breaking a sweat, while still finding room to fold a throwback trust-no-one thriller into its design. That’s an Avengers-grade achievement." - The A.V. Club

"The Rip Van Winkle of superheroes goes rogue in 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier,' an impressively equal sequel to 2011’s superb origin story 'Captain America: The First Avenger'" - Variety

"...in 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier,' we not only get an edgier, more complex, more compelling storyline, we get the most badass 95-year-old the world has ever known." - Chicago Sun-Times

Marvel's Captain America: The Winter Soldier - TV Spot 10

"Chris Evans once again makes our hero a compellingly pensive, furrowed-browed demigod. He moves very fast, like a Bruce Lee of bionically enhanced aggression, but Evans lets us see how the forces Captain America is up against are weighing him down." - Entertainment Weekly

What makes 'The Winter Soldier' so enjoyable, though, and what will make it so profitable, is its emotional bandwidth--all the vivid, nuanced life lived by its characters in between their frenzied escapades." - The Wall Street Journal

"The superhero saga continues in lively fashion with the second installment of Captain America, but what distinguishes this Marvel Comics-based movie is the ingenious complexity of the plot and dimension of the characters." - USA Today

"In its relentless violence and dark political subtext, this might be the most grown-up Avengers episode yet." - Washington Post

Captain America: The Winter Soldier Trailer 2

"But this time the danger doesn’t emanate from a fantasy villain like Neutron or an imaginary realm like Asgard. It’s grounded in threats from today’s headlines...Instead of butter on your movie-theater popcorn, you get a healthy spritz of paranoia. It tastes good." - TIME

"[The cast] all bring their A game, for a bracing superhero film that uses its brain as much as its brawn." - New York Daily News

"With his biceps and righteousness pumped to the max, Chris Evans's superhero Captain America is an enjoyable square peg in the round hole of the sleek Marvel universe." - Time Out New York

"Evans has settled comfortably into the title role, and bolsters its appeal with a precise charm, never letting you forget that the heart of a regular and sincere wimp beats beneath that rock-sculpted chest." - Empire

"With a string of gratifying action sequences, and a breakneck pace leavened by a frequently witty script, 'The Winter Soldier' stands alone as a solidly entertaining blockbuster." - Total Film

The film was awesome! They got pretty much everything right, and threw in a heap of fantastic easter eggs which I won't spoil here. 


I wish Cap had dated agent 13. A good movie like this needs some romance also. Every good movie must have a balance of romance, comedy, seriousness, evilness, and deep plot. Winter soldier has all that, except some good romance.

Marvel NEVER disappoints me or their fans. They "bring it" with every film. The next one a little better or if not as epic as the last. This one an excellent end to Phase 2 with The Guardians and Avengers 2 still to show. Marvel knows what they are doing, and continue to blow me away as a geek and comic fan. I am big supporter and look forward to the future Marvel films.


Captain America: The Winter Soldier was everything I hoped it would be and more. I don't think there is a single thing I would have changed. The depth of character and intrigue surpassed all of my expectations. Well done! I can't wait to see it again.
