Saw Captain America Winter Soldier (2D) first show today, wow . Amazing starcast ( Anthony Mackie was awesome ). Was surprised to see Robert Redford doing a super hero movie, brilliant actor without doubt. I give the movie 9/10, definately huge improvement over first Captain America. Solid Acting and Action. Reminded me lots of Mass effect 3 ( If you get my drift without spoilers ;) ) and The Avengers lol.

Share your impression on Captain America Winter Soldier OT :)

I'm in the theater right now sitting through the previews to the previews and they are posting a shitload of Titanfall ads. I'll post my opinion in about three hours or so.

Haven't seen it yet.....but most origin stories are the weakest of the series. So it stands to reason that the sequel would be more interesting than the retelling of the start.

I was in there ten minutes before the actual green band previews were on and all of the lights were still on when I typed that. Since I have the day off and it was almost 1PM here the theater was empty at the time until a few people walked in a few minutes later. Not only was it cheaper but I didn't have to deal with loud kids since most of them were still in school.

Just came out of the theater 30 minutes ago. It was awesome in my opinion. While I won't spoil the movie for anybody who hasn't watched it yet I am wondering how the events in the movie will affect the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D TV show. There are two end credit scenes so stay until after the credits are finished.

I will warn anybody who hasn't watched it yet to avoid some of the Youtube videos showing the trailer. I watched the trailer that Marvel posted last night and one of the first comments in the comment section posted a major spoiler about the movie.

Going back to the same trailer now there are several spoiler comments in there people are making no effort to hide to include one that did a flat out play by play of the movie from beginning to end.

Better than the first one? I didn't care for the first one at all.

Very surprised by the reception. I didn't like the first one at all. The idea of a superhero in World War 2 is great. But it didn't feel like World War 2 or the 1940's, lots of CGI driven futuristic stuff that I just phase out on. Apparently this is very slim on CGI.

The first is still my favorite Marvel film, but I'd put this on par with 'The Avengers' in second place. It is basically a Bond film starring Captain America, set in the Marvel universe.

Just got back from it. Definitely one of Marvel Studio's best films. It was simply fantastic all around. A little predictable at times, and also some things were a little to convenient but overall it was an outstanding film.

Man I loved it, definitely at least my favorite "solo" film of the cinematic universe, and probably the best action scenes too. Winter Soldier was especially kickass whenever he came on fighting.

Just came back from the theater. I really liked the movie, better than the first one which I also enjoyed. I never really thought Captain America would be so fun to see on screen.

@ad1x2: lol I only stayed for the first end credit scene, didn't expect another one, I wish I had seen your post earlier

It was a lot better than the first Cap movie and probably Marvels 3rd or 4th best film.

Truly very well done, movies like this make me love superhero movies even more!

Chris did an amazing job as Captin America and i kid you not the he's my motivation for me to workout big time ever since the first movie :P

the fights between Captin and the Winter Soldier were epic.

I am not a fan of Captain America or Chris Evans so my opinion might be a bit biased but I thought it felt uninspired and generic. There were some cool scenes here and there with witty one liners but the movie just felt bland.

If I was to give it a score it'd be 5/10.

Felt like a waste of time. Pretty much the prequel to the movie I actually want to see (Cap 3, I guess).

Best thing to movie did was get me to listen to some more Marvin Gaye.

SPOILERS ALERT******************************************

I don't feel like using the spoilers button because it won't let me see what I'm typing. I can't highlight it then cover it.

1) I'm finally tiring of the superhero genre, well, atleast Marvels. DC still has the most iconic superheros.

2) I hate that Cap knew the Winter Soldier. I hate that Cap was willing to die to prove a point at the end. He should have been willing to fight to the death.

3) The shield needs to be larger or they could just shoot Cap's legs.

4) Would the American people really stand for mass killings INSIDE OF BUILDINGS when the damage would probably kill other people.

I just got back from seeing it and honestly this movie has me excited for the superhero genre once again which I was just starting to wear thin on.

One thing this film did right was add a little tension to the film, which has been sorely lacking from the avenger flicks. It really helps the film that Steve is, while super, still human. He gets into situations big enough to where you don't see much of a way out for him, that really can't happen with Thor or Hulk, but that also means you shouldn't have him jumping out of planes sans parachute either.

All in all really good film which I suggest people go see immediately.

Twas a very good movie!

Was probably slightly less blown away considering I saw the movie directly after seeing The Raid 2 which was one of, if not the BEST action movies I have ever seen.

Movie had some great action in it, and most importantly I really liked the way it pushed the Avengers storyline forward.

BTW, those post-credit scenes were both VERY intriguing!

Really can't wait to watch the universe continue to get fleshed out. Them mentioning Doctor Strange has me uber-hyped as I really want to see him translated into a live-action movie!

It was really good. Great pacing and great actors. Had alot of Captain America characters too:

Batroc The Leaper

Crossbones

Armin Zola

Agent 13 - Sharon Carter

The Winter Soldier was awesome too, made him pretty badass.
