Captain America

Captain AmericaNetflix IMDb
Join me for a lovefest for Captain America: The First Avenger. I analyze the structure, give some background on my love for the comic books, and suggest a few minor changes. But mostly I praise the story, performances, and effects at every turn. It’s not a perfect movie, but it’s a solid one.

I compare it to the other Avengers films, Spider-Man, Indiana Jones, Fantastic Four, and Top Secret. I wish we saw a bit more leadership earlier on. I wonder what would happen if Steve still had asthma after taking the Super Soldier serum. And I point out that the Red Skull’s flip-flap digital timers are more anachronistic than his closed-circuit television system.

I’m watching the Blu-ray. Start the film after the Marvel logo fades, on the countdown.

    1. Sorry. Never seen it. Those movies aren’t really my bag. I know that probably seems really arbitrary considering the odd assortment of movies I’ve done, but I just have no interest in that series.
