Number of Times Seen – 2  (4 Sep 2011 and 7 Jan 2014)

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

  1. I don’t know that I’d quite call it Oscar worthy, but I do agree it’s one of the best flicks in the Avengers series. So far, I’d say it goes 1. The Avengers; 2. Captain America; 3. The first Iron Man.
