I don't think captain america is the first avenger well I thought wolverine was the avenger but that's just me. captain america the first avenger. the story is about After being turned down by the military, Steve Rogers participates in a top secret research project. The result is becoming Captain America - an enhanced soldier who dedicates his life to defending the American way of life. okay I thought this movie is going to suck just because it is the same director who did Jurassic park 2 and wolf man but this movie did not suck.good visual effects and good action.

Really? I mean, really? You guys are Fu**ing with me right? The real movie's hiding behind the curtain, right guys? Guys??? Guys?? This was garbage. I laughed all the way through at the extent of how poorly this movie was written, produced, and directed. But oh Lord in Heaven help the actors find another career. I felt like I was watching the kids who took Drama in 10th grade to get out of Gym class. I very feeble attempt at creating a loveable but physically weak "hero". But you must wait.... the United States government makes him super strong. See the nice guy does win. I seriously could've mistaken this for a straight to TV Sci-Fi channel special, with less of a budget than 'Shark Night'

Chris Evans is hot but even his hotness can't bump up my rating to a 3 or 4. Typical and predictable plot line. Wouldn't watch it again. It was decent, not terrible but not worth buying

The Star-Spangled Man with a Good Movie

An enjoyably retro superhero movie with a mildly satirical edge, 'The First Avenger' is a nice addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The cast is very solid, with Evan's molding a relatable and refreshingly idealistic superhero from what could have been a thankless role, Hayley Atwell, in contrast to other Marvel love interest (eyes on you, Portman), displaying quite a bit of personality, Hugo Weaving and Toby Jones being fine villains, and Tucci and Tommy Lee Jones playing serviceable mentors. The weakest link is Sebastian Stan, who serves more as a nice piece of eye candy than an interesting character.

The screenplay is innocuous, but in the best way possible. However, the intelligence of the protagonist's actions in the film's climatic scene is dubious. Still, it's a fun little ...

Fondue is just cheese and bread my friend!

“Arrogance may not be a uniquely American trait but I must say you do it better than anyone else”

Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) was born a scrawny kid from Brooklyn. His one goal in life was to serve his country the way his parents (an army nurse and soldier) did but he is deemed too small and too weak to join the Army. He keeps trying, and eventually submits himself to Dr Erskine's (Stanley Tucci) experiment to create the perfect human. Instantaneously Rogers becomes a poster boy for the Second World War and puts on about eighty pounds, he now runs faster and is stronger than any other human on Earth.

Captain America was conceived as an unapologetically American symbol, designed to boost wartime morale. This is a film that embodies every positive value that we all hold dear and can be...

Did It's Job and Then Some

Marvel got back on track with their movies with Captain America: The First Avenger. It did a very good job of bridging the World War 2 origin of Captain america to the modern day so we as an audience are ready for The Avengers this summer(2012).

Over all the story was good and the action kept the movie going at a nice pace. The beginning may have been a little slow but they do a good job of setting Steve Rodgers up as an underdog you want to root for. Sure it was a little predictable but they had enough fun and action to make me not worry about that. The little love story they threw in there was nice and didn't take anything away from the movie, in fact it may haven even added a little something for the romantics out there.

The real amazing part of this is the CGI. They did a great...

Spot looked good on the Super Bowl. Not sure how good it will be but of all the marvel movies in 2011, this looks to be the best so far.
