    These guys kinda ruined Capt America films for me. Making bland Tom Clancy plod fests. Some astonishing performances here even with the flat direction, specially father and daughter.

It’s a 120min film with a lot of Lord of the Rings 3rd act padding. These films still continue to suffer from some rushed floaty CGI…

Villains are the best thing about this... Sydow and Wyngarde. Mariangela Melato is the best thing in this with the little screen time she gets.

Dull set pieces, constant setups for other films rendering them over long. The airport stand off is great set piece, but feels stuck on. Making the rest feel flat and sometimes a rerun of Winter Soldier ideas. They resemble Marvel comics in the 90s when they where genuinely a bit frantic with sometimes desperate…
