“Captain America: The Winter Soldier”
Awful expectations: “What even is this? Captain America is fighting America? So cynical.”
Delightful reality: It won’t win any Oscars, but I’m going to make a bold statement anyway: “The Winter Soldier” was the best movie of the year. It introduced new characters, blew the Marvel Cinematic Universe apart, had something smart to say about balancing national security with freedom, and was so well-written even Honest Trailers couldn’t find fault.
