4 of 5

“..they all bring their A game, for a bracing superhero film that uses its brain as much as its brawn..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]
3 of 4

“..surprisingly dimensional life..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]
3.5 of 4

“..smartly self-aware, grandiose without being overblown, "The Winter Soldier" is a crackerjack summer blockbuster, three months early..”
by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune]
3 of 4

“..it's effective escapist entertainment - something we need from time-to-time..”
by James Berardinelli [ReelViews]
Review rate : B-

“..it looks great, it sounds great (Henry Jackman's score is a keeper), is performed strongly across the board, has some heart and soul behind, isn't afraid to be a little weird sometimes..”
by Oliver Lyttelton [The Playlist]
2.5 of 4

“..has its boots on familiar, formulaic, Hollywood turf..”
by Steven Rea [Philadelphia Inquirer]
2.5 of 4

“..Evans is engaging, but "The Winter Soldier" might be stronger with a little less Captain and a little more America..”
by Joe Williams [St. Louis Post-Dispatch]
4 of 5

“..directors Anthony and Joe Russo have made a film that not only delivers the goods on the action front, as movies of this sort of movie must, but is also about something..”
by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic]
4 of 5

“..despite featuring three Avengers in lead roles, Captain America: The Winter Soldier feels tonally distinct from its Marvel forerunners, more spy thriller than superhero sequel..”
by Emma Dibdin [Digital Spy]

JARHEAD 2: FIELD OF FIRE :

“..it's an okay action flick, but if you liked the original, you'll be disappointed..”
by JM Willis [Shockya]

FOUND :

“..a genuinely disturbing serial killer thriller..”
by Michael Rechtshaffen [Hollywood Reporter]

HOW TO BUILD A BETTER BOY :

“..it's not like we were going to get something as wonderful as "Sixteen Candles" or as fetch as "Mean Girls." That doesn't make it bad; rather, if you're into a tamer version of "Weird Science," then this is the flick for you..”
by Denette Wilford [Huffington Post]

RAGNAROK :

“..the Scandinavian Loch Ness Monster treatment just isn't all that mind-blowing, and unfortunately, anything other than an impossible behemoth with sharp teeth would have been preferable..”
by Zach Hollwedel [Under the Radar]

LET'S BE COPS :

“..a mild chuckle every five minutes or so doesn't justify the predictable slog of this mistaken-identity farce..”
by Alonso Duralde [The Wrap]

LIFE AFTER BETH :

“.."Life After Beth," is funny and sweet and more than a bit misguided..”
by Kate Erbland [Film.com]

THE TRIP TO ITALY :

“..some bits are very funny, but they all come to seem like reaching..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]

JAKE SQUARED :

“..Jake Squared is partly a romantic comedy and mostly a pseudo-philosophical apology for self-absorption..”
by Simon Abrams [Village Voice]

FORT MCCOY :

“..an old-fashioned, appealingly sentimental drama about homefront life during WWII..”
by Joe Leydon [Variety]

SWELTER :

“..Swelter won't be for everyone as JCVD is severely wasted in a very minor role and there isn't that much in the way of action. However, if you're looking for a modern Western with surprising humour then you might just have a blast..”
by Eoin Friel [The Action Elite]
