Review for Captain America…


Captain America was very well done.  I am not big into the comic books, so I didn’t know a lot of the history behind this comic, however, as someone going into it without much prior knowledge, I thought this movie to be entertaining and fantastic for anyone.  These types of movies are typically done right in that regard. If you think you are not one for movies based on comic books, you should give it a try if you haven’t already.  At the same time from what I understand, you are not let down as a fan of the comics either.  I have been loving all of the movies done by Marvel and they sure know how to find some hot guys to play these superheroes!

This movie was one of my favorites by Marvel.  There was good action, story, humor, patriotism, and a pinch of romance that I love.   Captain America’s story is so different and fun.  Taking place in a realistic setting during WWII, I loved the idea of a skinny kid becoming a strong and sexy superhero.  Steve Rogers played by Chris Evans, wanted to help people and fight off bullies, but he, like many superheroes, had no desire to kill anyone yet had unlimited amounts of compassion.  You find yourself feeling that same compassion for him throughout the movie.  You might even get a little teary eyed.  It was exciting to slowly watch him move himself up in the world until people began to notice him for his bravery and heroic behavior.  When you finally see him in uniform fighting for the first time, it gives you that giddy happy feeling.

Red Skull

The cast did a great job bringing the movie to life. Hugo Weaving was one of my favorite actors in the movie who played Schmidt aka Red Skull.  He had just the right type of evil in him and played the role very well.  There was a perfect touch of comedy to the film which is what you need in a movie like this.  Colonel Chester Phillips brought up much of the humor with some clever dialogue pieces.  The role was played by another favorite of mine, Tommy Lee Jones, who I’ve always enjoyed watching and never lets you down with his witty remarks.  Also looking forward to seeing more of Samuel L. Jackson in the Avengers.

Captain America is up there in the top movies so far this summer.  It’s fun and entertaining for all ages.  The only other thing you need to know is that you must see it while it is in theaters.  Not a big fan of 3D, but I know it can be enjoyed just the same either way.  Can’t wait for The Avengers movie to top it all off.  Make sure you stay for the end of the credits!  This movie was five stars.. or how about five shields!!
