64- Captain America [7.0]

Focuses on the early days of the Marvel Universe when Steve Rogers volunteers to participate in an experimental program that turns him into the Super Soldier known as Captain America.

The most critical elements to Captain America were the first act and Chris Evans’ performance. In that regard, the film succeeds. The Red Skull is inherently a silly character and the tone of the movie could have been far goofier in less capable hands, but director Joe Johnston pulls it off. Though the second drags along, it’s refreshing to see so much emphasis on character in a superhero origin film whereas most tend to just follow the usual set of parameters.

    I honestly didn’t find Evans performance in this one nearly as awesome as his performance in Losers. I think s a whole this was a decent flick tho

    I agree whole heartidly with you about character development in this movie. I think that is why it is one of my favourite super hero movies. I feel like most super hero movies are heavy on flash and pop and not on WHY we should believe in this person and their cause.
