I was never truely a Captain fan to be perfectly honest but I was pleasantly surprised with this movie. Other than The Green Lantern this was a pretty good year for comic book movies with Thor and X-Men First Class. But I heard that Captain was really good from some friends whos opinions I trust. I have been so backed up lately that I'm just now getting to watch this movie. But I'm glad I did.
This movie was stacked in all areas! Good acting, good story, good action, good effects and good direction. This is one of the best comic movies made, no doubt. It's not the greatest comic movie ever but it ranks high. I enjoyed this movie from beginning to end. Chris Evans did a great job as did Tommy Lee Jones. For a comic movie/period piece I thought it delievered.
Synopsis taken from IMDbIt is 1942, America has entered World War II, and sickly but determined Steve Rogers is frustrated at being rejected yet again for military service. Everything changes when Dr. Erksine recruits him for the secret Project Rebirth. Proving his extraordinary courage, wits and conscience, Rogers undergoes the experiment and his weak body is suddenly enhanced into the maximum human potential. When Dr. Erksine is then immediately assassinated by an agent of Nazi Germany's head of its secret HYDRA research department, Johann Schmidt aka the Red Skull, Rogers is left as a unique man who is initially misused as a propaganda mascot. However, when his comrades need him, Rogers goes on a successful adventure that truly makes him Captain America and his war against Schmidt begins.
Man Red Skull was awesome!
