    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

    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

    This muscular, red-blooded adventure has a decent heart and the stuff of Saturday afternoon serials running through its veins. show more

    Kirk Honeycutt The Hollywood Reporter

    Sticking to its simplistic, patriotic origins, where a muscular red, white and blue GI slugging Adolf Hitler in the jaw is all that's required, Captain America trafficks in red-blooded heroes, dastardly villains, classy dames and war-weary military officers. show more

    In the end, the action sequences are just overblown and dollar-squandering, with no particular payoff in the entertainment department. The supporting actors - particularly Jones, Tucci and Luke - are the thing to watch here; they do all they can to keep the movie's gears running smoothly. show more

    The movie surges ahead, moving nimbly through a series of action set-pieces that owe more to films like "Where Eagles Dare" and "The Guns of Navarone" than they do to, say, "The Green Hornet." show more

    The most stylish comics-derived entertainment of the year...It's paced and designed for people who won't shrivel up and die if two or three characters take 45 seconds between combat sequences to have a conversation about world domination, or a dame. 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).

    Special effects are great, but I thought the story line was terrible. The whole thing felt too rushed. Otherwise, it\'s a cool movie.

    We loved it and I\'m not usuallly a fan of comic book character movies--ever since Hollywood destroyed Superman by taking away Superman\'s cultural connection to America. I am sick of Hollywood destroing the American culture, our history and our values. Finally, this movie, Captain America, celebrates America and portrays the United States as the exceptional leader of the world--it celebrates old fashioned values and a belief in America\'s greatness--how refreshing!! Finally a movie that is not corrupted by the \"hate\" politics of Hollywood. Please--more of the same!!!
