Will I watch it again?  Absolutely!

Great flick.  I like it even more than CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER (2011).  Chris Evans does a bang up job as Caps.  And what's more, I really like this character more than any other in this universe except for Downey's fun as shit portrayal of that character.  I totally dig CA's dedication to do the right thing.  His eternal optimism is inspiring.  It's too bad we don't have this guy on our side in real life.  The entire cast does well with the fantastic story that's cool as shit how they're able to pull from the first film keep it fresh and alive.  LOVE IT!  It really makes me wonder how long they can keep this up, making these films fun and well-crafted from every angle.  I really hope Evans doesn't get tired of this role and leave it.  During the big ass fight at the end, am I the only one who heard the Wilhelm Scream but manipulated and slipped in very subtly?  I'm looking forward to seeing it again.  And I'll be listening.  If it is, it's one clever way of sneaking it in and I'd rather it be done that way instead of hearing it outright and taking me out of the film for a moment.  Damn, I hate that shit.
