5.0 out of 5 stars Nice artbook companion to the film 23 April 2014
By Parka HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
Length: 2:43 Mins
This is one fine artbook to accompany the second Captain America movie. It's as good as the first artbook The Art of Captain America: The First Avenger. I like both books.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier: The Art of the Movie still comes with a slipcase. Inside, the 232-page hardcover book has the Winter Soldier facing off Captain America on the cover. That's the art for the limited edition poster released at San Diego Comic Con 2013, and it's in the book.

And just like the earlier artbook, this is also packed with lots of artwork.

You'll get to see Captain America with his new suits, the stealth one he used on The Lemurian Star ship, the old (but updated) suit he stole from his own memorial while Stan Lee was working a security guard there, and also the other suit variations.

The other characters with more coverage would be The Winter Soldier and Falcon. These two have more pages dedicated to their costume designs. Together with Captain America, they have the best costumes. As for Black Widow, Nick Fury, the pirates, mercenaries, they only have too few pages among themselves.

There are quite a lot of scene paintings, and those look great. Many are double page spreads.

Environment art are for The Triskelion, the offices inside, Helicarrier Bay and Camp Lehigh. There aren't a lot of prop art. Strangely, there's no overall shot of the Helicarrier, although we have Nick Fury's awesome SUV.

There is substantial amount of storyboards included for several key scenes, but they will leave you wanting more because the sequences are quite long and the full length storyboards cannot be included. They are real cool to look at though, to relive the moment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful 15 Jun 2014
By Natalie
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is the first time I have bought something like this and it won't be the last. The artwork is stunning, so much so that if I had the money I would buy a second copy so I could frame some of it up on my walls.

All the behind the scene information is really interesting and adds to the repeated viewings of the movie.

If you love the movie half as much as I do, then do yourself a favour and purchase this, you won't regret it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Spelling mistake 23 April 2014
By Couldry
Format:Hardcover
There is a spelling mistake on page 118 .....
"Then see what you can (comte) up with"

Otherwise an excellent book and superb quality but not as good as the First Avenger edition and the pictures are not in a quality resolution as if they are screenshots blown up with and not originals.

They are real cool to look at though, to relive the moment. However, I would have preferred more painted illustrations or character designs than the storyboards because they are just better to look at for subsequent reference.

The text provides some behind-the-scenes commentary that explains what's going on with the film's plot, the design and a bit on how they shot the movie. It's a good read, but I'm sure there's a lot more material not included.

Overall, it's a fantastic artbook. Definitely worth getting.

4.0 out of 5 stars not as great as the first art book, but still well done 22 April 2014
By Jem - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The first Captain America art of book surprised me in how well designed and interesting it was. It incorporated a lot of comic history into not only the concept art, but the final film design. This book continues that, but with less emphasis on the comic origins; that is, there's not as much "history" included.

Just like Marvel's Thor: The Dark World - The Art of the Movie, this one is laid out chronologically vis-á-vis the film. Cap's redesigned costume is given an overview, as is Black Widow's, but where the book really shines is with the Winter Soldier and Falcon. Bucky's section is especially interesting because he's the only modern character in the film. The Winter Soldier was created in the late 2000's, unlike Cap and Falcon who have been around for 50+ years. In the comics, he has a domino mask and the concept artists pay homage to that with the military ant-glare paint around his eyes under the goggles. The design and physical implementation of his metal arm was very cool. Falcon also gets a lot of pages devoted to his design, and deservedly so. The various concepts for his wings are incredibly interesting as well as how the SFX render them in the film.

The other really strong point of the book is how physical locations, like the Triskellion and Smithsoneon, were conceptualized to fit real-world locations. The section on the museum has full page spreads of the murals drawn for the film, and has a beautiful fold-out rendering. The Triskellion section was far better than I would have expected in how much emphasis was put on making it realistic in its location along the Potomac River and how they reduced the helicarriers from 5 to 3 because 5 would not fit under the river! The destruction of the helicarriers, and how the battle damage from every main gun was fully mapped, has some brilliant concept art to accompany the explanation.

My main criticism of the book, and why I deducted a star, is the over emphasis on storyboarding. This is where a sequence is mapped out via small black and white panels. This is useful and interesting - ONCE - to see how an action sequence is developed and how art is fundamental to that process. However, there are six different sequences included here comprising 30+ pages of the book. They got boring very fast.

Just like the previous releases, the hardcover book has a wrap-around image on the cover instead of s dust jacket and a different wrap-around image on the slipcase. One change I noticed is that unlike the previous books, which were all 10" high without the slipcase, this book is 9.5 inches. The slipcase has a bit of padding at the top and bottom so that it is the same size as the other film slipcases. I'm honestly not sure why they did this, though I am glad the cases all line up nicely on the bookshelf. Overall, this is another fine installment of the Art of Marvel Films collection. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars ILLUSTRATIONS. OH MY. 14 May 2014
By Crescent - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The best part of this book are the drawings.

The still images from the movie are great, but hey - I have already seen the movie. It is the drawings that make this book truly spectacular, the comic history they depict and explore. I adore the center fold-out, and the cover is simply AMAZING (features Bucky and Steve, metal arm slamming against shield scene). Very inspiring for the artist in all of us!

Comes very well packaged, inside a hard cover that protects yet another, drawn, hardcover.

Definitely get the hardcover version. Much more durable - and beautiful!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great addition to the Art Of collection! 24 April 2014
By Clayton Barbian - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This book is great at showing how Marvel went about creating the look and feel for this film. It has a lot of stuff on The Winter Soldier, Falcon, and Cap and even answered my question of "why didn't they just use the First Avenger uniform" in the ending of the movie. Unfortunately we don't get anything on Hydra in particular, and the storyboards while cool felt a little overused. The marketing section for the First Avenger was much more filled out and I wish they had at least included Paolo Rivera's poster like the first one did. These minor problems aside this is still a 5 Star book. Everything from the Helicarriers and the Lemurian Star to Fury's SUV to Widow's Stingers look fantastic. Oh and I almost forgot - the chapter on the Cap Exhibit in the museum was one of my favourites and has a fold out page of the murals. This book is full of awesome :)
5.0 out of 5 stars FAntastic and beautiful book! 10 July 2014

This is a great read for anyone who loved the movie. I particularly enjoyed the pictures depicting the evolution of the designs for the various costumes. Many of the concept drawings and artworks could substitute for the posters used for the movie.
