Meek U.S. Army soldier Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) takes part in an experimental military program that infuses him with super-human powers, and uses his newfound strength to battle the villainous Red Skull (Hugo Weaving) in this comic-book adventure from director Joe Johnston (The Wolfman, The Rocketeer). Tommy Lee Jones, Neal McDonough, and Stanley Tucci co-star in a film written by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeeley (who previously collaborated on The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe). ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
Great origin and awesome movie. This is one of the first super heroes ever and they did him justice. Chris Evans delivers! The movie starts off a little slow with him not being a super soldier right away but it touches on the many areas needed to load up for the Avengers. It's not non-stop action or too over the top but this is a good film and great for the kids to see such a historic character on screen!
This is the epitome of an action-fantasy movie. The action was almost non-stop tied together with a well executed plot. It definitely kept my attention. I thought it was worth the watch and would consider buying it.
A lot more silly and comicbook-ish than I expected it to be. The initial trailers and advertisements made it look like the film would be taking a more plausible angle with the characters and story. That is not the case at all! The film is well made but very far fetched and the tone is very cartoonish at times. Despite these factors it still manages to be somewhat entertaining if you enjoy silly fun.
I haven't seen the movie yet, but I will. This is more of an observation. The good to best reviews were found helpful, but he reviews that panned the movie got no play at all. What is the point of reading and rating reviews if you only want to know the good positives? The negative reviews should help guide your decisions too.
I enjoyed this film - sort of like in the vein of "Raiders of the Lost Ark". The metamorphasis was kinda cool. The last half was a little predictable and not as fun as "Ironman", but I overall enjoyed the movie as escapist pleasure.
