Captain America: The Winter Soldier (5 Stars)
Today was the first time I've watched this film for almost 18 months, when I saw it in the cinema. I'd forgotten how good it is. The action is fast and exciting from beginning to end. The shock of seeing SHIELD be corrupted from the beginning hit me even on seeing it happen for the second time. This is one of the best Marvel films ever, coming a close second to Sam Raimi's "Spider-Man".
More than anything else, this film shows the real Captain America. They finally got it right. He carries a shield, not a gun.
