Well I saw this last night, and I enjoyed it. Best Marvel movie since the Avengers imo. Also, since we last saw him, Cap seems to have discovered the joys of Judo. Lots and lots of Judo.

Those are his skills in the comics. Movie universe is a bit different. I just thought that compared to The First Avenger and The Avengers, Cap had a lot of new moves in this movie, many of which were Judo throws.

Captain America had mastered the martial arts of American-style boxing and judo, and had combined these disciplines with his own unique hand-to-hand style of combat. He had also shown skill and knowledge of a number of other martial arts. He engaged in a daily regimen of rigorous exercise (including aerobics, weight lifting, gymnastics, and simulated combat) to keep himself in peak condition. Captain America was one of the finest human combatants Earth had ever known.

Ghost55 is wrong, marvel uses the same power bases as the comics minus a few tweaks here or there.
For example, in an interview, they said they toned down Hulks mile long leaps.

I just don't see when in the current continuity he could have picked up that many combat skills. In the first movie he basically just used the skills he learned in boot camp and it was his enhanced speed and strength that made him so dangerous. It is only after he was unfrozen that he could really have had time to start learning more advanced combat techniques.
In The Avengers, it's hard to tell how much better he has gotten at fighting because most of his enemies are aliens and he uses his shield a lot. However in The winter Soldier he gets separated from his shield quite often, and it looks like he is using a lot of new techniques in comparison to The First Avenger.
As for the power bases all being the same, that is blatantly untrue. In the comics, Natasha was born in 1923, and went through the Russian equivalent of the super soldier project. She was never frozen either. She just ages really slowly. In the movies she was born in 1984. Also, in all of the movies that he is in, Loki's powers begin and end at basic illusions. In the comics he has tons of different magical powers.

In regards to Cap's fighting abilities, I like his new power kicks.

But it's nothing special unless you compare him to Cap or a normal human. In the comics he had strong enough magic to face Iron Man in direct combat. In the movies, Iron Man is far stronger than he is.
