I know there are a lot of reviews for this movie out there already, so I'm going to keep this one short. Captain America: The Winter Soldier came out two days ago, and its one of those few movies that I can say I have already seen twice, and am proud to say it. This was definitely Marvel's best movie to date.
Firstly, both the acting and script are fantastic. I found no issue with their story or choice and usage of characters at all. They even set up another comic book storyline perfectly for [Captain America 3](movie:994409). It was definitely a much more serious movie, but it had the perfect amount of humor mixed in for the story they were telling.
The fight scenes and action sequences... Best ones I've seen in a very long time. When I came home from it both times, I walked in my door wishing that I could do that. There is also a short car chase, which was basically epic. The only better car chases that I have seen were in the Fast and Furious movies.
The special effects were nothing short of spectacular (My particular favorite were Falcon's wings. Those things are EPIC!!!). I couldn't even tell that the animation was animation. It was just a sight to behold.
Overall, Captain America: The Winter Soldier was an intense, epic thrill ride that I am probably going to see for a third time, and then get on dvd as soon as it comes out. It had me on the edge of my seat throughout the entire movie. It made me laugh out loud, gasp out loud, and (at one point) it had me nearly in tears. It had some MAJOR references and hints to both the past and the future of the Marvel Universe (Don't forget the post credit scenes!!) I give [Captain America: The Winter Soldier](movie:254973) a 4.9 out of 5 stars. Definitely worth the hype!
