What did you like about CA:TWS? What did you think were its strong points, its most moving moments?

Michael Hoskin said...

The strongest point about Winter Soldier is the continued characterization of Captain America as a very nice guy who makes the right decisions; he's neither corny nor tyrannical, simply nice.

I also enjoyed seeing the Cap/Falcon team come together; Cap's non-romantic-romantic-banter with the Black Widow; the return of Zola as a disembodied consciousness; Batroc demonstrating some of his comic book characteristics (his "I thought you were more than a shield" line was spot-on); and the reunion of Cap and Peggy was magnificent.

I'm very tired of stories about S.H.I.E.L.D. being a corrupt agency, but if this is the end of S.H.I.E.L.D. in the movies then that's fine.
