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

Finally saw the movie. Lots of fun, a good heart. I think having it in World War II definitely shook up the Superhero genre enough to give it a different take. Plus, it's always good when the gods cause Nazi faces to melt off.

I'd say the weak moment was Bucky Barnes' death. I knew of the character, so there was a bit of a shock that they would kill him off, but it also made sense in the story, so I wasn't all that shocked. Maybe die-hard Captain America fans were more shocked? The "goodbye" scene with the crash worked a lot better. I know he survived, but there's something sad about timetravel and everyone you know being dead. Also, it sucks that the Dodgers moved out of Brooklyn.

I think the Avengers will be a lot of fun. I'm looking forward to it. Glad I managed to see both Thor and Captain America this summer. Definitely set things up a lot better.

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

whilst im sure the decesion to bring Bucky back in the comics has worked in that medium, im unsure if it will work in any Capt Am movie series, ok I grant you it is a movie based on a comic book, but im not sure movie auidences will go for it.

That said ive said the same about UK & US soaps, in the US soaps, charactes come back from the dead all the time, where as in the UK, its something that if frowned up on.

I fear that too a movie auidence, Bucky being both alive and in the present day is going to appear contrived, unless its part of the wider plot arc of the movie. Its going to take a huge dose of comic book logic.

That said that is just my opinon, I cant say if that is held by other movie goes. I mean its almost crazy to say that, you cant use comic book logic in a comic book movie, as most of the movie is built on comic book logic.

to be fair looking at the linked wikipedia page and reading up on

it does seem the movie has done, for Buckys comic book future to appear in future Cap Am movies.

He fell into a river and then got frozen in the movie. In the comic he falls into the North Atlantic and freezes.

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

We've talked about Bucky's fate earlier in the thread without using spoiler codes...why are we doing so now with them? LOL. Sebastian Stan has a multiple movie deal (nine films) and has brought the character mentioned on this page in his press junkets. I think Scarlett Johansson brought him up as well in one of her interviews about "Avengers" interviews or when Stan was cast since the two characters end up in a relationship.

It's also not SHIELD that recovers and unfreezes Bucky....

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

SHIELD did unfreeze Cap Am however, they cleary have some advanced tec, guess this is one of those comic book things we are meant to just accpet.

nine movies seems like ALOT, dont get me wrong he has a place in future Cap Am movies, and possibly later Avengers, unless he has some roles in future Iron Man movies (with Scarlett Johansson).

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

Yeah I was referring to Hydra/Red Skull which also has been shown to have advanced tech and is the group who recovers Bucky. Or at least we can assume does in the movie. This will most likely be explored in "Captain America 2". Remember that Steve found James interestingly drugged and on a surgical table strapped down, I believe that Dr. Zola was just down the room too

I guess HYDRA could reform without Red Skull, I dont suppose that Cap Am and his gang killed everyone when the shut down the HYDRA facilities in the movie, its possible those who survived could regroup and reform HYDRA. Unless HYDRA was bigger than it would appear in the movie.

So basically Cap Am 2 is going to undo alot of what we thought we knew from Cap Am

You do realise it's a Comic book movie?
Two things that usually don't conform to realism.
