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

I enjoyed it. Not a particularly smart movie, and more CGI-gloss than I care for, but it was certainly fun. Chris Evans was great in the lead role, and Tommy Lee Jones seemed to be having a good time. I can't say I'm thrilled that they rushed through half of WWII in a montage in order to get Captain America to the present day for The Avengers, though, especially since it looks like a huge cluster**** of a movie. And, considering they had superweapons, the Hydra stormtroopers sure spent a lot of the movie not easily defeating our heroes armed with machine guns. There's a point near the end where Red Skull destroys at least six guys in little more than a second. I don't see why his minions waited so long between shots (and were so inaccurate with them, too). Considering we'll probably never see any of Captain America's surprisingly racially integrated team for WWII, a few more could have been used as cannon fodder to amp up the tension...
