Re: Captain America: The First Avenger-Review, Discuss, Grade, Sequel,

Loved it and gave it an "A".

- It didn't feel like a by-the-numbers superhero movie. A good central character as Valar described above, some substance and it being a period piece helped set it apart. I couldn't help but think that this is what G.I. Joe should have been.

- I was quite impressed with the way they made Chris Evans look small and thin.

- I liked the retro style high tech.

- Loved all the connections to Iron Man and Thor.

- Caps got the girl. Too bad it was only a kiss.

- The end scene got an applause from the audience and I loved it too. I'm very much looking forward to The Avengers and hope to see at least a little of what became of everyone Steve left behind.

A few nits...

- With Captain America's shield being one of a kind, I kept worrying that he'd lose it. Then what?

- Having the wrong thing on the radio seemed like too much of a misstep for S.H.I.E.L.D.

- Red Skull did look a bit cartoonish but Hugo Weaving was fantastic. I wonder how they got his nose under that make-up since Red Skull doesn't have one. Or was that a CGI manipulation too?
