Captain America: The First Avenger review; it's a great superhero film
Captain America is one of the most beloved Marvel Superheros ever. It's kind of sad that it took this long to get his own movie considering what he represents. The character of Steve Rogers, played by Chris Evans, is an interesting one. He is small, puny and wants nothing more than to be a soldier in the U.S. Military. When a doctor creates a serum to help him become physically superior soldier, that's when all the fun happens. Let's go!
What I liked about the movie:
Hayley Atwell as Peggy Carter was a delight on screen, not the usual damsel in distress. Tommy Lee Jones plays a perfect Colonel in the Military, he is compassionate enough for us to care about him, but stern enough to lead in a war. Stanley Tucci... is there anything Tucci can't do?! He's awesome as the Doctor who invents the serum for Steve Rogers. Sebastian Stan plays Bucky, Steve Rogers best friend, nicely done by the young actor.
Shelly Johnson used just the right lighting that gave the movie an older feel without overdoing it. It was nice to see a superhero film that wasn't in modern day times.
