  • 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

  • What distinguishes Cap is his humble backstory, which involves neither hairy gods nor hot-dogging test pilots but a kid from Brooklyn who just wants to fight for freedom. show more

  • While the story is preposterous and most of the cast standard-issue, it's hard not to like a comic-book movie that features both Busby Berkeley-style dance numbers and high-tech vaporizing weaponry. show more

    Wonderfully enjoyable movie of the "Super Hero" genre. Chris Evans is superb in this role. The special effects are mostly exceptional. I would have enjoyed seeing Tommy Lee Jones role, expanded just a bit more (Old T L Jones fan of course).

    Captain America the first aveger is very good action movie. The director did a good job on geting the cast & puting the story together. The special effects is perfect. I had fun, enjoyed, and i had a good time at this movie. I am a superhero movie fan.
