Brief Synopsis – The origin story of Steve Rogers who became Captain America and helped fight the Nazi’s during WWII.
My Take on it –I love superhero movies and I also love movies with LOTS of dead Nazi’s so where could I go wrong by watching this movie?
Captain America is the patriot’s patriot and he has always been one of my favorite superheroes. I love what they did with his origin story and I love ever more the way they used special effects to use the same actor for the “scrawny” Steve Rogers and the “super human” Steve Rogers.
I have also been a big fan of WWII movies, so they found a great way of adding 1940’s science fiction “technology” to the fight against the Nazi’s.
After having re-watched this movie, I am highly anticipating the sequel (out later this year).
The team at Marvel and Paramount have really been doing a stellar job of cranking out great movies in their Avengers series and I look forward to it getting better and better. This, IMHO is one of the best so far.
Bottom Line – One of the best movies (so far) in the Avenger’s series. Highly recommended
Rating – Oscar Worthy
