The best Marvel movies to date
Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014)
The Russo Brothers build a strong sequel on The First Avenger foundation and subsequent shared universe entries, elevating both Captain America's skills and personal drama to refreshing heights.
Chris Evans has grown significantly in his role since The Avengers, and is far more appealing here.

“Captain America: The Winter Soldier” is a tremendous piece of pop entertainment, smart and engaging and featuring a home run movie star lead performance by Chris Evans and the best overall supporting cast in one of the Marvel movies in terms of everybody having something significant to do and everyone being written for to a degree where they're playing people and not just types. ... »
It knocks down a lot of the infrastructure the previous films had created, and it does so in a way that feels organic and refreshing for the Marvel world at large.
Iron Man (2008)
A supremely confident, well-tooled entertainment. It's bound to be the early pace-maker for the oncoming glut of summer blockbusters.
Robert Downey Jr. gives a nicely sardonic performance as Tony Stark, a rich playboy and the brilliant heir to his father's weapons manufacturing dynasty.
At the end of the day it's Robert Downey Jr. who powers the lift-off separating this from most other superhero movies.
Iron Man is an action sci-fi blockbuster extravaganza that provides cartoon thrills for thinking people. It's the best movie of its kind since the second Spider-Man movie four years ago.

Marvel's The Avengers (2012)
If you are a Marvel fan, then The Avengers will feel like Christmas. Thanks to the merry doings of the director, Joss Whedon, all your favorite characters are here, as shiny and as tempting as present s under the tree. ... »
What Whedon and Marvel have created here is not just extraordinary, but one of the most entertaining and satisfying comic book movies yet.
By crafting a winning combination of wonderful characters, brilliant comedy, and spectacular set pieces, Whedon hasn't simply created the biggest superhero movie; he's created one of the best.
If you're not already a fanboy, it'll turn you into one. It is honestly the most fun I have had at the movies in a long, long time.
Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)
Blessed with a loose, anarchic B-picture soul that encourages you to enjoy yourself even when you're not quite sure what's going on, the scruffy Guardians is irreverent in a way that can bring the fir st Star Wars to mind. ... »
Los Angeles Times
Action-filled and funny, Guardians of the Galaxy stakes a late claim for the summer's best film.
Washington Free Beacon
The people who made this movie must have had a swell time in the process, and it's nice to see a summer epic that takes itself so unseriously.
Wall Street Journal
It's the funniest of any Marvel movie yet, lending the film a lightness that goes a long way toward deflating the grandiosity that sometimes inflates and bloats the studio's films.
Captain America: Civil War (2016)
It's the Vibranium standard for super-team flicks.
Civil War reminds us it's OK to enjoy a few laughs, even while diabolical villains plot doom, outraged citizens demand accountability and your best pal mistrusts you.
"Captain America: Civil War" does not in any way transcend the conventions of the genre. On the contrary: It succeeds because it doesn't really try.
New York Times
Tear away the powers, abilities and egos, though, and the third Captain America movie is at its core a deep exploration of friendship and family and what sacrifices should be made to hold onto both.
