Odie Henderson at RogerEbert.com, gave it a great 88 score, stating, “The rare film in this genre that serves as both entry point and continuation. For a change, you can walk in cold and you won’t be too lost.” Richard Roeper from the Chicago Sun-Times, gave it another 88 grade. He said: “Co-directors Joe and Anthony Russo and the team of screenwriters have fashioned a story with just the right balance of superhero fun, nods to the greater Marvel Universe and genuine dramatic tension.”
Owen Gleiberman over at Entertainment Weekly, gave it an 83 score, stating, “The creators of Captain America: The Winter Soldier have brought off something fresh and bold.” Joe Neumaier at the New York Daily News, gave it an 80, saying, “Parents, take note: For all its heart, this is a tougher, more morally complex movie than its predecessors. Young kids carrying their miniversions of Cap’s famous shield may be in for a jolt.”
Claudia Puig from USA Today, gave it a 75 grade. She stated: “An often breathlessly exciting action thriller told with humor and intelligence.” Ty Bur from the Boston Globe, gave it a 75 score, stating, “The new film isn’t nearly as bleak as Christopher Nolan’s take on Batman (in general, Marvel seems more risk-averse when it comes to fiddling with the crown jewels), but it still creates an action-movie landscape torn between patriotic ideals and harsh post-9/11 realpolitik.”
Michael Phillips over at the Chicago Tribune, gave it a 75, stating, “The movie does its duty. It’s a reliable commodity, delivered efficiently and well, like pizza.” Rolling Stone’s Peter Travers, gave it a 75 score. He claimed: “Captain America: The Winter Soldier is every rousing, whup-ass thing you want in an escapist adventure.”
Ann Hornaday at the Washington Post, gave it a 75 grade, stating, “A baggy, at times brutal conglomeration of surprisingly deep character development and aggressively percussive action, The Winter Soldier is a comic-book movie only in its provenance.”Read More..>>
