Review Roundup: CAPTAIN AMERICA Fights His Way Into Theaters

The latest installment in the ever-expanding "Marvel Cinematic Universe," Captain America: The Winter Soldier hits theaters nationwide Friday, April 4th. Chris Evans returns as the first Avenger, and is joined by such stars as Scarlett Johansson, Cobie Smulders, Emily VanCamp, Robert Redford, and Samuel L. Jackson.

After the cataclysmic events in New York with The Avengers, Marvel's Captain America: The Winter Soldier finds Steve Rogers, aka Captain America, living quietly in Washington, D.C. and trying to adjust to the modern world. But when a S.H.I.E.L.D. colleague comes under attack, Steve becomes embroiled in a web of intrigue that threatens to put the world at risk. Joining forces with the Black Widow, Captain America struggles to expose the ever-widening conspiracy while fighting off professional assassins sent to silence him at every turn. When the full scope of the villainous plot is revealed, Captain America and the Black Widow enlist the help of a new ally, the Falcon. However, they soon find themselves up against an unexpected and formidable enemy-the Winter Soldier.

Let's see what the critics had to say:

Manohla Dargis | New York Times

"The sequel, which was also written by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, suffers from some routine blockbuster sins, including an excess of plot. But it, too, doesn't make the case on screen for why Captain America should have been taken out of mothballs." Read the full review here.

Kenneth Turan | Los Angeles Times

"It's a product of the highest quality, but at the end of The Day that's what it is: a machine-made, assembly-line product whose strengths tend to feel like items checked off a master list rather than being the result of any kind of individual creative touch." Read the full review here.

Todd McCarthy | Hollywood Reporter

"These true-blue enthusiasts will not be disappointed in this second entry in the series, which takes the bold (for Marvel) step of reducing CGI spectacle to a relative minimum in favor of reviving the pleasures of hard-driving old-school action, surprising character development and intriguing suspense."
