I say A
As usual, I offer my gut reactions:
-Chris Evans nailed
the Brooklyn kid who didn't like bullies, and I wasn't as weirded out by the CGI 100-pound-weakling as I thought I would be.
-Peggy Carter...hmmm...bitch can shoot
-Nice to see that the women had actual Forties figures (hourglass) and not 21st century supermodel builds (beanpoles with boobs).
-This is the part where I usually complain about how Hollywood never tries to do the costume as drawn. Can't this time. They did three costumes as drawn and worked them all.
-Is it just me, or did they try to make Howard Stark look like Leo DiCaprio's Howard Hughes?
-Did everybody else feel a rush when Cap threw "His Mighty Shield" the first time?
-Speaking of, Vibranium? I thought it was made of Adamantium. Does Fox still own that term from the X-Men movies or something?
-One thing I can't get past is the revisionist history where Hydra is the great menace we faced in World War 2. No, it was Nazis
, national socialist goosestepping racists that walked around with a tribal symbol as their standard. Former Nazis (like Baron Wolfgang Von Strucker) led Hydra, but Hydra was Chaos to Shield's Control, a post-war terrorist menace. It just flips my switches when somebody in Hollywood decides, "Oh we can't show swastikas in a superhero film," when the film's about a guy who got his start punching the head swastika in the face!
-Anybody else wanna see Big TV Arnim Zola with limbs? Anybody?
-I name Tommy Lee Jones THE MAN. I do not name people THE MAN lightly. He is THE MAN.
