Ironically The Dark World turned out to be quite a light but still fun film and it's the Captain America sequel that gets all serious and dark. Stylish, intelligent and action packed it's reminded me more of Greengrass's Bourne films than the 70s conspiracies. It suffers (inevitably, it now seems) from a overblown final third set piece which is a shame because I think I liked the low key (no pun intended) climax to Thor 2 more. I liked the first Captain America which for me now makes this the most solid series in the Marvel universe.
