To be fair, the backstory in the comics revolved around Steve feeling guilty about causing the apparent death of Bucky. (Let alone feeling guilty about dragging a teenager into the middle of WWII combat, but that's another story.) So the emotional resonance of the surprise Bucky-Cap reunion in modern day is lost on MCU the movies, it's a simple case of "I thought you were dead...." "Yeah, same here." Not much oomph to it.
