Critiquing Film, Television, and More

Quickie: Captain America The Winter Soldier (2014)

4th Viewing

Has someone made a Mission Impossible joke about this movie yet? Someone has bound to have made one by now, right? I’ll hold back on mine then.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier—AKA the Russo Brothers finding any possible way to make a lameass character, well, badass—is an unexpected spy, espionage thriller that makes Marvel’s previous attempts at arousing gripping action look like child’s play due to a harsh, razor-edged, Bourne Identity-like direction to its choreography. Just think of it as if Marvel’s The Avengers got a Sons of Anarchy makeover and became the cool, motorcycle-riding, tobacco-chewing dad you’ve always wished you had. That’s about the equivalent of what The Winter Soldier is.

Verdict Change: A- —> B 

This Movie is a Part of My List: Ranking the Marvel Cinematic Universe From Best to Worst

I also like to call this flick, the #1 ex machina movie where almost everybody—like, almost everybody—who supposedly died or dies, comes back to life. I counted four characters, how about you?

“Captain America: The Winter Soldier” is now available to rent and buy on YouTube, Amazon Prime, Vudu, iTunes, and Google Play.
