Buy it... if you seek a maligned but competent superhero score that follows basic formulas predictably but underplays its hand when not striving for ingenuity.

Avoid it... if you expect any of the heart or themes of Alan Silvestri's prior work in this franchise, Henry Jackman producing a comparatively modern and alternately boring and grating successor while still trying occasionally to maintain nobility.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier: (Henry Jackman) In the seemingly endless series of Marvel superhero films of the 2010's, the second "Captain America" film represents yet another blockbuster success certain to spawn many more to follow. While 2011's Captain America: The First Avenger served as a vintage origins tale for the character, the 2014 sequel Captain America: The Winter Soldier throws his universe completely into the modern world, culturally and technologically. As part of the S.H.I.E.L.D. spy network, he investigates emerging threats from villains and corruption from within, the Marvel realm in full swing as the established characters chase each other in search of true motivations. As one might expect, the villains aren't truly evil and the friends don't always play expected roles, and the political thriller element of Captain America: The Winter Soldier led to some of its critical praise. The soundtracks for the Marvel cinematic adaptations had taken a general turn for the better over the previous few years, the infusion of veteran talent from Alan Silvestri, Patrick Doyle, and Brian Tyler steering these franchises in the direction of musical coherency. Thematic integrity, a concept shunned in the early Marvel films, was beginning to creep into the equation, mostly due to Silvestri's involvement. It was Silvestri who had scored Captain America: The First Avenger and The Avengers, the first an exemplary throwback action work and the latter lesser but still passable. With the change in directors for Captain America: The Winter Soldier came an unfortunate shift in the music as well, Silvestri's old-style action disregarded in favor of a much more modern, electronic approach by Henry Jackman, one of the more capable spin-offs from Hans Zimmer's Remote Control soundtrack production house. Jackman's reputation for rousing children's movie music, some of which astoundingly complex at times, in conjunction with his foray into the "X-Men" universe, has given him the benefit of the doubt with traditional film score collectors, even with occasional stinkers like Captain Phillips muddying his resume.
