Winter Soldier is a treat for fans looking for a visually stunning action piece juxtaposed with elements similar to the spy genre seen in the 70's. Although on paper this might sound like an awkward hybrid balancing both elements but the Russo brothers executed it with perfection. Moot point trying to qualify this film to those who think its less than "film" and more a movie. I disagree in every sense that this movie is shallow in any regard and hold it to the highest standard. 5 stars absolutely. Pompous statement but if you aren't a fan of this movie, you might possibly be a huge bore in real life, sorry for the random judgement but it just is a fascinating film.
