Captain America the best of most recent superhero movies. It’s an exciting movie that appeals to fans of 1940’s style.
The actors portray their characters well. Chris Evans is fantastic: his portrayal of the origin of Captain America as a little guy is perfect, and he transitions to superhero with ease and makes the character more believable. And I have to admit, Hayley Atwell is surprisingly awesome. Miss Carter is definitely the type of female character that I love; she’s hard-core, speaks her mind, and manages to look glamorous while always carrying a gun. The rest of the cast does a fantastic job in making this movie feel real. You either love or love-to-hate a character.
I thought that the plot of the movie was fun, and combined World War II movie well with superhero movie. Some of the plot points in the late first half make less sense to younger audiences aren’t as familiar with 1940’s history. Even with that understanding, the movie tends to drag a little in that area with a lack of action. Captain America still doesn’t come close to being a boring movie, however, because the very early part of the movie and the latter half make up for it.
Overall, Captain America is definitely a pick-it. It stands alone well, but it also makes me excited for The Avengers movie coming soon.
