Continuing the thriller style of the critically acclaimed "Winter Soldier" this film juggles even more characters and that is no easy feat. Each one of the characters has their moment (or five) to shine, the new additions fit in perfectly, the well known ones feel like our friends by now. The film also refuses to take the easy way out and force a position on the viewer in the war between former allies. Both points have merits and the film takes his positions and his characters serious enough to give them time to articulate them.
While the beginning is still somewhat serious two very special characters bring the fun into it, culminating in the greatest superhero action sequence on film to date. And that's not even the showdown yet. Perfect blockbuster entertainment with brains and muscles. Another triumph for Marvel.
What's starting out like a Special Forced recruitment video soon… MoreWhat's starting out like a Special Forced recruitment video soon follows the well known paths of war survival films. That's decently acted and filmed, especially during the action scenes, but remains thematically undecided between hurray-patriotism and portraying the ugliness of violence. The film ends up being fair towards Muslims and pays tribute to the souls lost in the actual case, you gotta appreciate that. But the result remains overall unsatisfying on all accounts.

It has great dialogues, a good cast, decent action and some really touching scenes. Especially Valerie's story and the domino montage towards the end are spine-chilling sequences that make this movie unforgettable. Excellent!

The unpredictable plot and fascinating location already make sure of that but the outstanding look adds another layer of oddness. The sudden bursts of violence are almost physically hurting for the spectator, yet you can't look away from this fascinating and challenging film.

It sums up the childhood feelings of having a really exciting summer really well. The sudden burst of violence during the showdown seems a bit too much, but everything is perfectly solved after all. Satisfying, touching and really well done all around.

It also makes you miss the 1980s sooo much. Don't you forget about me.

Shortened by about 20 minutes this would have been a much leaner film. It also does not always find the right tone between its silliness and the violence. The great and fun showdown redeems some of that. If only the film had more of that over the top comic action.
