  • Here's the funny thing: Despite all the Captain America rah-rah in costume and indestructible shield, the movie is at its best when the story sticks with skinny Steve. show more

  • Once Captain America goes off to war in his endearingly silly suit, however, the movie starts to lose its vibe. show more

  • From its antagonists to its art direction, everything about Johnston's movie has a been-there, seen-that familiarity. Yet Evans' clean-cut idealism and objectives make old-fashioned patriotism look fresh. show more
