* ForcedMeme: The Blu-Ray dedicated a two minute featurette to a phrase Creator/AnthonyMackie liked to use at the end of takes, "Cut the check!", as a possible attempt to popularize the phrase among Marvel fans.

* AwardSnub: The film was nominated for a whopping ''fourteen'' Saturn Awards, but did not win a single one of them. This is somewhat alleviated with [[Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy the MCU's other film of 2014]] winning some of those awards.

** Cap's new uniform for the film has also gotten a mixed reaction, with some declaring it to be an upgrade over his costume in ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'', and others lamenting the removal of the red-and-white stripes from said costume. [[spoiler:He ''does'' end up wearing his original WWII getup from the first movie in the climax.]]
** Cap's more pronounced badassery in the film. While many were happy to see Cap kick some serious ass thanks to his previous depictions, some felt they went ''too'' far. Of course, given how badly Steve was OvershadowedByAwesome in previous films, and was shown before that he's incredibly strong and fast but was just never given a chance to demonstrate it in full, him looking so awesome makes more sense given the fact that now, without Iron Man, Hulk, and Thor around, everyone is Overshadowed by ''his'' Awesome this time.

** 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.

* 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]].

** SHIELD [[spoiler: Being thoroughly infiltrated by HYDRA and trying to subvert what America stands for]] becomes much more chilling now that it's increasingly apparent [[spoiler: that [[https://theintercept.com/2017/01/31/the-fbi-has-quietly-investigated-white-supremacist-infiltration-of-law-enforcement/ White Supermacists have been infiltrating local and state level law enforcement agencies for decades]]]].

* AllThereIsToKnowAboutTheCryingGame: Thanks to the [[MemeticMutation meme in which people caption images of a person whispering into another person's ear]] with [[spoiler:"Hail HYDRA", even people who haven't seen the movie know that HYDRA is the bad guys]], and that's actually the [[TheReveal biggest reveal]] in the entire movie, if not the entire '''franchise.'''

* 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).
