The first Captain America film won me over because of the 1940s nostalgia. This installment was a typical brainless summer comic-based movie. Most of Evans and Johanssen's lines seemed like they were reading straight from the script. My friends all enjoyed it very much, but I thought it was very average.

Marvel has done a nice job of growing the Avenger characters and producing movies that are fun and absorbing. The characters in Captain America 2 are sharp with quick wits and strong morals; very likeable. The addition of new characters like Falcon and Agent 13 fit in perfectly. Cannot wait for Avengers 2 to see them all back together again!

Awesome movie! I really liked the first Captain America movie, and this one is even better! Typical witty banter, amazing chase and action sequences, and plot twists and turns. Some of the twists were predictable but not in a bad way...how they got there was interesting. It left a large amount of mystery surrounding the origins of Black Widow - here's hoping she gets her own solo movie! The end also leaves us to wonder - where do they go from here? Can't wait for Avengers 2! Oh, and be sure to wait through ALL the credits as there are TWO of the usual Marvel surprises, one of which might set up some element of Avengers 2.

I mean, lets just leave it at the fact Marvel and Disney know how to make a franchise successful. Great movie and fun to watch. Direction and visual effects were convincing and memorizing. Well done!!

After the slight letdowns of Iron Man 3 and Thor: Dark World, Captain America: Winter Soldier sees the return of the most iconic Avenger. Coupled with the Black Widow and later the Falcon, this film is more a political thriller filled with intrigue and behind-the-scenes machinations from critical players. Chocked full of peripheral characters from the books and other films, as well as passing references to characters still to be seen, it did not disappoint. This surpassed the first Iron Man and Cap movies for sheer enjoyment and rivaled the Avengers stand-alone movie, as well. Just a great movie. It will take multiple viewings for everything to sink in.
