Captain America

Was fantastic.

The plot was also another highlight. It was easy as pie to follow. America needs super soldiers to help stop Hitler and Hydra and the rest of those crazy assholes we all know about from World War 2. Thus, Steve Rogers is turned into Captain America. Pretty easy.

I saw the regular 2D version at midnight, and was not let down. The best thing about this movie is how much heart it has. Chris Evans does a great job as scrawny Steve Rogers, and does an equally great job as well, himself without a shirt on. It was humbling to see Captain America make mistakes, and bumbles around at first. The almost God like complex he has in the comics is missing. He’s not perfect, he makes mistakes, and he get’s tossed around a lot, even as Captain America. Fans will get a kick out of the throwback Timely costume he wears at one point, and you’ll even get a glimpse at one of the Timely Cap comics. He even punches a fake Hitler a few times. His relationship with Bucky (played by Sebastian Stan) was touching, and well executed by both actors. While you don’t get a back story on Bucky, you can’t help but enjoy the chemistry the two have on-screen, and you will be touched by Caps loyalty and love for Bucky.

I also enjoyed how good the script was. None of the lines were terribly corny, which was a pleasant surprise from movies such as Thor and Green Lantern. Tommy Lee Jones as Col. Chester Phillips delivered some of the best lines in the movie. My favorite was this:

Doctor: What is this?
Phillips: Steak.
Doctor: What’s in it?
Phillips: Cow!

Every character was well thought out and executed beautifully by whomever played them. Dominic Cooper as Howard Stark was funny and charming, much like RDJs Tony Stark. Hayley Atwell was splendid as Peggy Carter, who was one bad ass woman in this movie. Also, I need to give a special shout to the Howling Commandos. They all looked like how they do in the comic book. It was amazing, and I really enjoyed it.

Of course this movie is worth seeing, so go see it.
