Now that you've seen it, what did you think? Arriving in theaters today is Marvel Studios' fifth movie, Captain America: The First Avenger, our final introduction before The Avengers, and their first period piece taking place in WWII. At the helm is none other than director Joe Johnston, who cast Chris Evans to bring Steve Rogers to life on the big creen and transform him from a skinny Brooklyn kid into the hero who'll lead the Avengers next year. So how is it? One of the best Marvel movies? Is it entertaining or just boring? If you've seen it, leave a comment below with your own thoughts on Marvel's Captain America.
To fuel the fire, I really love Captain America, it is no question my favorite Marvel Studios movie and I can't wait to watch it again. Johnston nailed the tone, it's not overly comedic, yet keeps a lighter, fun pace that makes it entertaining and ass kicking all at the same time. Evans is a perfect Cap, Hugo Weaving is a badass Red Skull, even Tommy Lee Jones and Stanley Tucci are great. It's just everything a fantastic Marvel comic book movie should be, and it ends on a perfect note leading right into The Avengers. The action scenes are awesome, lots of shield throwing, but they don't give us too much. I seriously wanted to go back and watch it again right away after seeing it for the first time, it's that good. I loved it and I hope everyone else does, too!
