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]

“..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..”

LATEST REVIEWS

UNFINISHED BUSINESS :

“..a jumble of half-baked ideas, none particularly interesting..”
by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic]

CHAPPIE :

“..Blomkamp's ideas feel depleted this time, dulled by repetition and other cinematic droids that stretch from HAL 9000 in 2001: A Space Odyssey to Ultron in the upcoming sequel to The Avengers..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]

FAULTS :

“..Winstead is one of the most intuitive actors of her generation, and though her impressive range is easy to spot, it's her elasticity that makes her so rewarding to watch..”
by David Ehrlich [Time Out New York]

KIDNAPPING MR. HEINEKEN :

“..Sam Worthington and Jim Sturgess are solid as two of the four kidnappers, but Swedish director Daniel Alfredson pushes the caper button too many times..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

OCTOBER GALE :

“..the material is not exceptional, but Ms. Clarkson always is. She's that rare actress over 50 who seems to land a lot of the juicy roles her younger competitors covet..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]

TO WRITE LOVE ON HER ARMS :

“..yet there is a touching sincerity to the entire enterprise, its lumpiness coming from a desire not to make things up, and if you can put away your cynicism, which I clearly am struggling with, the acting might win you over too..”
by Steve Morrissey [MovieSteve]

THE INTRUDERS :

“..this is one of those movies that's not very good but not so offensively bad that I regret ever seeing it. No doubt, it's also something I probably won't remember in a week..”
by Brian Oliver [The Movieman]

FOCUS :

“..like a counterfeit handbag: It looks great but falls apart when you reach into it..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

A LA MALA :

“..thoroughly predictable, and despite an original setup, the movie never rouses the emotions..”
by Marjorie Baumgarten [Austin Chronicle]

THE HUNTING GROUND :

“..the stories are horrifying, but essential to hear..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]
