The signal-to-noise ratio on "The Winter Soldier" is all messed up, and the net effect is self-canceling. I enjoyed the movie while I was watching it, or I thought I did, but all that's left is an irritating buzz.
Actually, considering the character-based focus, reliance on a larger fictional world and jaw-dropping visuals, Winter Soldier feels like exactly what Marvel has made for generations: a truly great comic book.
The story gives a nod to his past but also boldly moves the story forward. I feel that there's truly something huge at stake here, not just for Captain America, but for everyone in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
An exciting film that expertly uses modern moviemaking techniques, yet relatively minimal CGI, to meld aspects of the best classic espionage thrillers of the '70s and the fast-paced action of the current superhero flicks.
