Guess what, everyone? Marvel Studios knows how to make a really good superhero movie. At least, that's what the first round of "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" Twitter reviews suggest.
The follow-up to "The First Avenger" doesn't hit theaters until April 4, but Disney allowed critics to share their brief reactions early. And the response has been nothing short of ecstatic.
I'll save my expanded thoughts on "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" until closer to the actual release date, but you can check out my tweet along with the other early reviews in our roundup below.
I really enjoyed "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" in the theater and like it more and more in hindsight.— Kevin P. Sullivan (@KPSull) March 11, 2014
Just heard the embargo lifted on this, so: I've seen 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' and it is superb.— Alex Zalben (@azalben) March 11, 2014
Winter Soldier doesn't just amp up the stakes from the first movie, it's a true sequel to Avengers with massive ramifications going forward.— Alex Zalben (@azalben) March 11, 2014
Last note, and then I'll leave this alone until April 4: 'Winter Soldier' is the Black Widow movie you've been waiting for.— Alex Zalben (@azalben) March 11, 2014
CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER: Phase 2 is 3/3 for me. Anthony Mackie has finally found that breakthrough role.— Damon Houx (@houx) March 11, 2014
Captain America: The Winter Soldier is awesome. A tad too long, a tad too plotty, but its action & MCU impact will blow your damn mind.— Germain Lussier (@GermainLussier) March 11, 2014
I saw Captain America 2 last week and I really enjoyed watching it, but when I try to explain the plot out loud I sound like a crazy person.— Mike Ryan (@mikeryan) March 11, 2014
