Captain America: The First Avenger

captain americaI’ll make this short and sweet.
Chris Evans nay-sayers, prepare to eat your words. Evans NAILS it as both pre- and post-serum Steve Rogers. Like RDJ as Tony Stark, I can’t imagine anyone else ever being able to play this role.

Hugo Weaving is one of the most, if not THE most, effective MCU villain to date. He’s everything a villain is supposed to be: sinister, sneering and menacing. Weaving proves Agent Smith wasn’t just a one-off, but that he’s a natural when it comes to villainous characters.

My only complaints: not enough interaction with Steve and Peggy Carter (by the way, Hayley Atwell is GORGEOUS in this movie) and Bucky’s death isn’t given the gravitas it deserved. Also, maybe a little too much laser play. But that’s just carping.

My favorite thing about the film, though, is that while it may be another stepping stone on the way to next year’s The Avengers, it doesn’t feel like one. CA:TFA is its own movie, with its own beginning, middle and end. And Steve’s final words in the film aren’t about his shock at having awoken in a world some 70 years beyond his time. Rather, they’re about the one thing he wanted but never got to have from his own time, cementing even further that while Rogers may be a hero to millions, he’s still just a man. And in this case, a man with a heart.

Cap has been my favorite comic book character since I first picked up an issue ofCaptain America in June of 1981. So I’ve literally been waiting thirty years for this film — and I couldn’t be more pleased with it.

Along with Iron Man, Captain America: The First Avenger is, in my opinion, the best MCU movie to date. Also like Iron Man, the final scene doesn’t just make you aware there’s going to be a sequel — it makes you actually EXCITED for one.

Great flick. Cap fans won’t be disappointed.
