Twitter Reactions: The first Captain America film, Captain America: The First Avenger (2011) was a box-office smash bringing in over $176 million domestically and had a fresh rotten tomatomemter of 79 percent. Let’s see if the sequel will be as entertaining and/or commercially successful. The consensus thus far is overwhelmingly positive (I literally could not find a single negative Tweet about it!).
There hasn’t been a more complete superhero movie than Captain America: The Winter Soldier since The Dark Knight

With so many positive reactions on Twitter and a promising weekend box-office debut, you’d be a turkey to miss Winter Soldier. If you do happen to catch the film this weekend, do your fellow comrades a favor and don’t ruin it.
If any of you spoil the Winter Soldier for me, I’ll kill your face
