Synopsis


Captain America: The First Avenger
Meek U.S. Army soldier Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) takes part in an experimental military program that infuses him with super-human powers, and uses his newfound strength to battle the villainous Red Skull (Hugo Weaving) in this comic-book adventure from director Joe Johnston (The Wolfman, The Rocketeer). Tommy Lee Jones, Neal McDonough, and Stanley Tucci co-star in a film written by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeeley (who previously collaborated on The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe). ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    I can see why everyone is praising Captain America in some way. Cap manages to deliver a little bit of everything and does it with style and integrity. This extremely talented cast fit each character perfectly, both large and especially the smaller roles. The story itself is told in a masterful, crisp manner. The dialogue is witty and the humor works its way seamlessly in to the natural order of the story. The film certainly is smart but it’s fun first and foremost. Comic book style slugfests are certainly part of the fun but are inserted as a vehicle for the story and not just to see CGI things explode. Things aren’t blown up just for the sake of seeing them go boom. What makes Captain America as good as any Marvel film is the fact that it’s a fine film for kids but it's even greater if you're an intelligent adult. How many movies can pull that off? Like Thor and the Iron Man films, this is movie making of the most entertaining order and it easily deserves all the praise it has generated from both fans and critics alike. It makes anyone long for that Avengers film to be sure.

    This is a great movie! This is one of the few comics to screen translations that I would say is worthy of a nomination for Best Picture (Batman Begins and The Dark Knight are also Oscar worthy). Set in WWII, this movie tells the origin and the first adventures of the most patriotic of all super-heroes, Captain America! We see his beginnings as a brave but sickly man who is transformed into a heroic power-house by top secret science. He then goes off to the European front to stop the evil Red Skull from unlocking a power he planned to use to conquer the world! Captain America blends drama, action and heroism in one brilliantly written and superbly directed movie. Chris Evans is great as Steve Rogers/Captain America, Hugo weaving turns in an Oscar worthy performance as the Red Skull and Tommy Lee Jones does his usual great job. There's even a cameo by Stan Lee himself! The visual effects are amazing. A seamless blending of live action and CGI. It's incredible how they were able to make Chris Evans look so small and skinny! The make-up on the Red Skull is some of the best I've ever seen. This movie is extremely faithful to the Marvel comics. Marvel Studios did a superb job of bringing one of their oldest and most recognizable characters to the big screen in a way that long-time readers of Marvel comics can enjoy. This is truly like a classic Marvel comic come to life. There are references to Iron Man and Thor and the story flows nicely into the upcoming 'Avengers' movie! For action and drama, Captain America can't be beat. 'Nuff said?

    A move that fits almost any mood!

    Years ago I began doing everything based on my mood. This became very difficult to watch movies or listen to music and though I have "broken free" from that limitation for the most part I have found that no matter what mood I'm in I can always watch Captain America. The visual effects and acting were top of the line and the story was in depth and really made you feel for the characters. Excellent movie!

    My kids (10 and 7) really enjoyed this movie and I did as well. It had a positive message and wasn't too violent while still enaging both my kids and myself.

    Outstanding Edition to the Marvel Movie Universe

    Extremely Enjoyable movie that manages to be both modern and nostalgic at the same time. Getting the director from the Rocketeer was genius and it shows! Dovetails nicely into next years AVENGERS Movie!
