One of my favorite movies. The summer of 2014 was a magical time for the MCU, with the successful foray into genre films. This film is a quality conspiracy thriller, with an endless series of insane set pieces with excellent camera work. Hail HYDRA.
Somewhat better than I remember. But holy shit it is so dark. As in literally, there are parts that are almost impossible to see. But, it delivers a Ron Howard experience: a serviceable crowd pleaser with enough set pieces to hold one’s attention.
