* GrowingTheBeard: For the entire MCU. The movies that came before, ''Iron Man'' and ''The Avengers'' in particular were considered solidly entertaining, lighthearted action spectacle films, but generally seen as lacking in emotional impact and not having stakes. ''The Winter Soldier'' turned things on the head and made long-term changes to the series (such as [[spoiler:destroying SHIELD and changing the status-quo]]), introduced a much darker and serious plot while still keeping the light-hearted elements and set a trend for more inner-drama and tension in the movies that followed.

** After TheReveal, viewers of ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'' started to ask themselves [[spoiler:if any of the S.H.I.E.L.D. agents they'd come to know and love over the course of the first season were actually HYDRA agents.]] The paranoia there turned out to be justified, as [[spoiler:Grant Ward was revealed as TheMole in the following episode]].

* VisualEffectsOfAwesome:
** Most obviously, the Winter Soldier's metal arm is a downright beautiful piece of work.
** The fight scenes in general, starting with Steve sprinting around the hijacked ship and demolishing anyone in his way. It's a great reminder that he's [[SuperSoldier faster and stronger than any normal human]] (''without'' going totally over the top).

* EvenBetterSequel: ''Winter Soldier'' has been considered an even stronger film than [[Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger its predecessor]], already a fan favorite in the MCU. In fact some critics and fans have been treating it as this to the ''entire'' MCU, declaring it the best of the whole series so far (its Tomatometer is the sixth-highest in the MCU behind ''Film/IronMan1'', ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'', ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'', ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar'' and ''Film/DoctorStrange''). It's also far more successful at the box office than the original.

** The cut to [[EndingFatigue Falcon and Rumlow still fighting after the rest of the climax has been resolved]].
** Steve at his old army base and seeing the ghost of his former skinny self who looks at him in amazement.



** The amount of times somebody gets mule kicked either into or off of something practically becomes a RunningGag.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: Some have argued that TheReveal of [[spoiler: HYDRA having infiltrated SHIELD]] undermines the ethical question the film poses of "is reduced liberty in the name of greater security worth it", and that the question would have resonated more if [[spoiler: SHIELD itself were the antagonists]].

** In the UK release, ''Series/{{Sherlock}}'' is on Steve's To-Do List. Creator/BenedictCumberbatch would portray the titular character in the ''Film/DoctorStrange2016'' movie. [[Film/IronMan Tony Stark]] actor Creator/RobertDowneyJr played Sherlock Holmes in the Creator/GuyRitchie–[[Film/SherlockHolmes directed]] [[Film/SherlockHolmesAGameOfShadows films]]; and both Tony Stark and Stephen Strange are [[spoiler:among HYDRA's targets for Project Insight]]. So it looks like [[spoiler:HYDRA]] is unwilling to let Steve watch Sherlock Holmes.

** It's pretty difficult to not add [[Film/Anchorman "You know I don't follow the]][[Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse MCU!]] after "Who the hell is Bucky?"

** This film was released following the controversial Superman reboot, ''Man of Steel''. Some fans feel that Chris Evans' Captain America was a more appropriate modern take on the Big Blue Boyscout.
