I think it's entertaining but mostly just ok, but I'm not a fan of how many liberty it takes with actual historical events. But between that and FatWS, I'd choose the sensationalist, Hollywoodesque, historical fan-fiction any day, no contest.

  • I love that Walker was ostracized for killing a person when the avengers and all other “non-toxic” hero’s have killed tons of people. The leftoids say “they begged for their life and he did it anyways…” and it’s like Ryan George said in the pitch meetings “the other people may have begged for their lives if they weren’t murdered so fast”

  • Legitimately really enjoyed Walker’s arc. He was trying to live up to a symbol that only truly existed with Steve, ridiculed by others for doing so because of it instead of being guided in the right direction, and ultimately was manipulated via his mad drive to become the symbol he couldn’t. At the end of the arc, he’s still being manipulated as he becomes the USAgent, I hope to see more of him honestly.

Scarlet witch is now a nutcase who enslaved a whole town, Loki was a bumbling bafoon and a passenger in his own series, Bucky is now an incompetent lapdog suffering from white guilt and Falcon is now an idiot forgiving terrorists, even though he was in the US special forces. And gives pretentious lectures that offer no meaningful policy guidance or practicality… “yOU’vE goT tO Do bEtTeR”

He's honestly a really good actor and played his part incredibly in captain america the winter soldier and is stuck in this mess where he'll probably never get a movie or a series about his character. It's a shame because I was really happy that Bucke was meant to be a prominent character in this series when it was announced, but nope, the guy who's name is in the title of the show is basically shunned for a "misunderstood" teenager.

    • @Ultimaxx Manga "These arguments are bad" I mean you only gave one reason for why one of them was bad, which okay fair enough it is indeed an expression(although that doesn't mean it's never used in a literal manner), but what about the rest "doesn't mean he was" feels like pretty weak reasoning for something that doesn't make any sense, and what about the other things I mentioned. and again even if you try to argue the in-universe reasons, it's still dumb, it's still the show trying to introduce a problem in a very clunky & poorly written manner

    • @H G.C In Star Wars new hope young Luke used Lightsaber with helmet in head (no ability to see) and still could block/deflect laser beams. Its not about speed, but by "force" you know where from laser shot is coming and what is the place it will hit you, before it is actually shot in the first place. But if you have multiple enemies it don´t help so much, as you need to move away from shots at the same time you try to block/deflect some.

    • @DankyDoodle Swords in general are pretty dangerous to an untrained user. You're likely to cause self-injury or harm others around you unless you're aware of what you're doing. The only people who can use lightsabers (effectively) are force-sensitive. Lightsaber users are usually force-sensitive. Lightsabers are ideal for force users. Non-Force users would be very ineffective with it. You need an almost superhuman level of speed and accuracy to wield a lightsaber to the extent that you can match or surpass a blaster wielding soldier. Force users are so precise and fast with lightsabers because they open themselves to the Force and let it guide them. For an entire army of soldiers, lightsabers would be extremely ineffective. They would most likely just accidentally hack each other to pieces. They are feasible as a weapon for force-users with training and cybernetically enhanced individuals like General Grievous (who also had training).

      H G.CH G.C2 ай бұрын
    • ​@Thigh Guy I understand what you're saying. I'm just arguing that lightsabers aren't very feasible as a weapon. They are only convincing in that they have to defy all logic. Jedi/Sith would probably be better off using any other weapon, including spears. Not only would you *have* to be a master swordsman in order for them to be even remotely effective, but you would also have to be fighting against braindead stormtroopers who couldn't shoot a dead target from two meters away. Sure, you might manage to cut the spear in half as it lunges at you at 20-30mph, but not before the tip flies through your chest cavity out your backside. Spears are not only more feasible as a weapon, but they were literally the most effective melee weapon throughout most of human history. I agree with the OP, but lightsabers aren't much better.

  • Personally, Walker was my favorite part of the show. They watered down the character from his comic book counterpart, but all in all, they captured the essence of John Walker in his short appearance on this show, and I can’t wait to see more of him as US Agent. I’m a BIG US Agent fan from the comics, and I can’t wait to see a darker murkier counterpart to Captain America...assuming it’s done right anyway...as far as Winter Soldier goes, they need to do a LOT more with Bucky. They need to explore his guilt from his time as the Winter Soldier more, they need to show his fractured mental state, his search for redemption, like they did in the comics...but this show merely scratched the surface of the characters...ALL WHILE PANDERING POLITICS I DON’T AGREE WITH. I used to really enjoy the show for its action sequences too, but ever since rewatching it...I’ve kinda had enough of it...John Walker’s uniform was on-point though, and Bucky’s suit was good, as was Falcon’s red and white suit...hell his Cap suit was good too...but when he tried justifying the terrorists? He lost me. Steve Rogers wouldn’t have justified terrorists, since they are, in essence, glorified bullies with weapons...I’m sure Steve is turning over in his grave right now.

  • There is something that leaks over from the comic books that a lot of people didn't get. Steve Rodgers was the only person who ever took the super soldier serum who didn't go insane. It makes you crazy and violent. That is what happened to Walker, it happened to the old fellow, it happened to Karli, it happened to all the super soldiers from russia who zemo killed. and it would have happened to Barnes as well except Hydra kept him drugged and programed. This explains a lot but they should have made it more explicit.

John suffered a lot from that and why you see him turn so “evil” so quickly without any explanation.

  • *If the only way for your female character to look "strong" is for all your male characters to be "weak" then she isn't "strong".* Strength comes through confidence - not insecurity; a "strong" female is unthreatened by a male's strength and can work side by side, WITH him; using each others strengths to enhance and supplement the other. There's a reason why "strong" female heroes like Black Widow, Wanda Maximoff, Princess Leia, etc., are more successful than this recent crop of "strong" females, and that's because they are secure enough in themselves that they CAN show weakness, they don't use their gender as a superpower. They work WITH -not AGAINST- their males counterparts, and do not require the males to be watered-down for them to shine -- they can fight right alongside the strongest males and stand out. That's what makes them badass women. Also, EVERY female in the script does not need to be "stronger" and "smarter" than every male in the script. It is a boring, repetitive, unrealistic, annoying, and condescending character which is another reason why audiences don't connect with , and even despise these females. As a writer who happens to be black and female, I am exhausted and fed up with the "strong powerful female" trope. Women are not super human - they are flawed, weak, and have many different individual personalities, struggles and characteristics just like men. They cannot ALL be "strong and powerful". And when we are it comes out necessity; we grow into it, it COSTS us SOMETHING, and we have moments of weakness and insecurity- just like with every well-developed male hero. We need to stop pretending that faults, flaws, and cracks don't exist in women. Every single popular male character exposes these very human caveats at some point in their journey. If this new crop of "writers" want the same success for their female leads, they need to allow them to be HUMAN - not just an angry gender with dialogue.

    • @jimthar17 made it look like affirmative action, right. When you list the reasons of both characters, one was way more qualified than the other. They ruined bucky by making him a sidekick. The audience wasnt with falcon through most of the movies like it was bucky barnes, werent as invested. They could have told a powerful story with the character, sebastian stan is an actor on par with RDJ and Ruffalo as far as the acting profession. But instead made more woke boring and subpar tripe.

    • @The Mouth of Sauron right? Its like they didnt know the character, didnt watch the previous movies, and just shoehornedin a white guy sidekick. How do you get a character so wrong? That guy, director and the people who signed off on the show don,’t deserve to be hired for another job, for being this bad at it. If i were that actor who played bucky, my ass would be chapped as soon as i read the script. But they have him by the testes because of a contract.

    • @Gary M also bucky had been in more films than falcon, was closest to steve rogers and was a character that the audience was invested in, and was stiffed in order to push a woke storyline that literally preached to the audience through a subpar plot. The writing sucked, they wasted and ended the bucky character, he was treated like an afterthought…just crappy all the way around. I am sick to death of being preached at in what should be solid entertainment where we can relax and escape.

  • I really liked the characters in this show, but they weren't portrayed well. Zemo is one of the most creative villains Marvel has come up with in years, and they didn't do anything with him. He was intelligent and interesting and had an actual personality, but they barely did anything with that. And John Walker was a bit of an arrogant prick, but he was fucked so hard by the government you'd just expect that. They could have done so much more with his character than just turn him into a plain villain. There were so many grey areas in this show but they still tried to make it black and white, in more ways than one.

  • Baron Zemo was probably the most evil villain I have ever seen on film. He killed all the flag smashers, saved Bucky and Sam during the serum raid, was strategic and philosophical towards solving his problems against the terrorists (sorry, activists), and destroyed the rest of the super soldier serum so no other force of evil could use it to rise into power. These are the true acts of a heinous and despicable human being.

    • @Narnia Dici Michael Bendis, the guy who wrote an incestuous Scarlet Witch/Quicksilver, Wolverine hitting on an underage Mary Jane, Miles Morales kissing Gwen Stacy, retconning every supporting character for Moon Knight as well as his personalities, making Ms Marvel into a one dimensional shitty character, making Captain Marvel kill Tony Stark in Civil War 2, writing an off panel relationship between Captain Marvel and War Machine so Captain Marvel could have a lazy excuse to care about his death MORE than Tony Stark his lifelong best friend, etc etc etc MICHAEL BENDIS retconned Zemo into a nazi. Pre-Bendis, Helmut Zemo was an angry and confused child who was essentially tortured and programmed by his father and grandfather who were literal Nazis. Helmut Zemo was always conflicted with his upbringing, eventually during and after the events of Thunderbolts, he cast away his past in favor of becoming a misunderstood hero intent on doing the most heroic thing imaginable but then had to ultimately sacrifice his life to save existence from the Avengers interference/mistake, built on their mistrust of Zemo, with the power cosmic. Zemo gets sent back in time pretty much exactly like Batman dying to Darkseid, where Zemo fights his own family throughout history to right some of their wrongs and bring some justice to the Zemo bloodline. Including saving a Jewish family from being murdered by his own ancestors, fighting alongside Union Jack in WW1, trying to kill his own father during WW2, etc etc. Michael Bendis is literally FAMOUS for ignoring character development to achieve his vision, like what he did to Superman's son. He is a narcissist. Helmut Zemo is a complex character that overcame child abuse, and struggles with his own evil. A conflicted character, who was conditioned to hate Captain America and to kill him at any costs since he was conceived by his own father. A different form of mind control than Winter Soldier, but just as sad and comparable to what actual parents do to their kids.

He surely has done his bad deeds, but he isn't surely an immoral person, he acts like a member of The Boys. Picture this: You are enjoying a day with your family, during that day they are testing a prototype car in the city, the car has a malfunction and kills your whole family except you. What would you? Wouldn't you want justice? Wouldn't you want the people who made the car pay for their mistake?

  • 6:11 And he had the nerve, nay, the GALL, to politely introduce himself to the Dora Milaje, showing some respect and admiration to fellow special forces operators, to speak to them as equals. The cad, how DARE he! I just finished binge watching this with my dad, and and a few of these questions still lingered, especially about Zemo going to the Raft, instead of Wakanda to stand trial. And, in the last episode, in the bit where the other Flag Smashers hesitate to finish Karli's "One World, One People" motto, one of them should have spoke up to her to point out she's going too far, then dies by Karli's hand, to show REALLY extreme she' has gone. That vengeance has completely consumed her. As for Contessa Val-really-long-name, I have a theory about her: she's recruiting a team, like Fury did for the Avengers, and she's not in S.H.I.E.L.D., but the new Director of S.W.O.R.D.

  • The Falcon and the winter soldier never got their solo movies but thanks to the history of our real universe, they needed more than that. Thus, they get a whole miniseries of movies that was not only deserving but packed with real world nuance and realism that involves Marvel Superheroes that still fit everyday life social issues. From immigration reforms to class struggles to international politics, the Cap'n ideals were constantly tested throughout the entire series like he was still there with us but without him, we see an internal struggle that is non unlike civil war. With the fortitude and resilience however already endured by both citizens and superheroes alike, the marvel universe as a whole evolves into a whole other level of sublimity resolving in the end back to where the original Cap'n Steve Rodgers drew his principles, strength and faith from, independence, acceptance and love for each other. We will see by the end, why Steve chose Sam. A great path for Anthony Mackie lay ahead as the new Cap'n but one well deserved for all the hard work and thoughtful creativity put out by the entire team at Marvel. If I had kids, they would have a world of entertainment and wisdom to be gained, thank you. From Marvel fans across the globe you have given all nerds and geeks alike vindication for their ever present faith in all things...nerdy and geeky Stan Lee lives on in you Kevin Feige.
