Top critical review
on 30 October 2015
I thought this movie had many impressive moments, but I wanted to see a lot more of Steve in his Captain America uniform. I realise what the directors were going for, but when I watch a movie based on a pre established hero, I want to see more of him fighting in his actual outfit, honestly, they could have easily called this movie Steve Rogers: The Winter Soldier.
I understand why most people like this one, and it is better than other movies like Skyfall so I won't Diss it, but because I was a bit disappointed by it having far more Steve than Cap, I just can't quite give it 4 stars. It's likely I will watch it again at some point later since I only watched it once at the cinema and haven't seen it since, but I guess I'm more into hero movies where you see our hero fighting in his official signature uniform/outfit instead of a civilian for most of the movie.
That may only be a little thing, but it reminded me of Spiderman 3 where there was far more Peter Parker than Spiderman. I know the Winter Soldier is a much better movie than that but I'm sure you get my point.
I would day it's still a pretty good entry in the Marvel series, but for now it hasn't quite done it for me, at least not how Age of Ultron and Antman did. But as I said before, I will likely give Winter Soldier another chance at some point in the near future. Still, I can't fault the story and focus of this one.
