Rated PG-13 · 135 minutes · 2014

Action, Adventure
It’s worth wondering if Captain America: The Winter Soldier needed to be as durable as it is. After all, it made $92 million in three days—an April box office record—and the Avengers feeder movies have one of the largest built-in audiences in movie history. But it’s surprisingly strong, less a comic book superhero movie than an old-school action flick that trims a lot of the fat generally associated with the genre and focuses on a stronger-than-normal story. Captain America (Chris Evans) doesn’t like the direction S.H.I.E.L.D. is headed; intending to save the world from danger, the group led by Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) may have impinged on too many freedoms. That it happens while S.H.I.E.L.D. is under attack from within put both sides of the argument under the microscope. It needs a better supervillain, but otherwise, this sequel is pretty damn good.

Charleston City Paper Captain America: The Winter Soldier excels when it's less about action, more about characters Full disclosure: Where Marvel Comics superhero movies are concerned, I have a terrible record of getting it right the first time. Such is the burden of being a recovering adolescent comic-book geek; it's often hard to separate the giddy spark of seeing beloved characters come to life from the question of how those characters were brought to life. And anecdotal evidence suggests I'm far from alone. by Scott Renshaw 04/02/2014
