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

my review:

Captian America A+

Let's be clear, this film rocks. It doesn't matter if you're an Americaphile or Americaphobic, it's not a gung-ho flag-waving patriotic movie. This is a movie about a guy, a little guy, who gets beat up because he refuses to give into bullies. A guy given a chance to become the peak of humanity and to use that to Do The Right Thing. He then does; and how. Don't bother with the 3D version, I saw it in 2D and it's perfectly great that way. Evans erases any lingering memories of his (well cast) role as Human Torch and exemplifies Cap perfectly. Hayley Atwell as Agent Peggy Carter is frankly sex on legs. Hugo Weaving is his usual brilliant self as Johann Schmitt, the Red Skull. Able support provided by Stanley Tucci as Erskine, Tobey Jones as Armin Zola, Tommy Lee Jones as Col. Phillips, Dominic Cooper as Howard Stark and Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes.
