Don't be fooled (only a 1 disc), but it is well worth it! This movie takes you back to WWII but incorporates a new character into the mix, Captain America! He initially doesn't start out as a superhero, but as a small guy who wants a part in America's fight for their freedom. This DVD includes a few featurettes on the movie and Capt. America's patriotic uniform which aren't the best, but the movie terrifically makes up for it. Overall, this movie is one that the whole family will enjoy and will truly want to watch again and again.
Starts very slow, and it keep picking up action. Very long movie, but it keep you awake. First Captain America movie for me. Good acting, and plot. Some parts were like a cartoon much like the movie 300. I did not care for this. I would have gave it a better rating. Good family movie, and values. They did a very good research of the 1940's when people use to be proud to a American. Good Movie. Go for it.
This was great to see one of my boyhood comic book characters come to life on the big screen. I really enjoyed this movie, sticking to my rules on reviews I won't go into details about the movie. But HEY!, what really is their to know? It's captin america on a big budget film. I think the movie did a great job in breaking in the character to people whom might not of known much about him. But as far as it rates with the other "hero" type movies, Spiderman, Batman, Thor, Ironman ect. I felt it was kinda weak. I almost rated this movie a 3star! In a perfect rating system it would go for me as a 3.75stars. Its worth watching/owning. But don't expect to be blown away with cutting edge stuff. But for me, just getting a chance to "geek out" and see 1 of my again, boyhood hero's jump to life again with so many others on the big screen made the movie a must see. ITs much better then greenlanter, but not as good as Iron man. I feel like maybe they just kinda pump these movies out in order to get people excited about the Avengers. The last really good movie they did about a super hero was Ironman. And this is no Ironman. Overall, I don't think you'll be disappointed, and its worth buying. Just not a 5star movie.
This film reveals the origin of Captain America with Chris Evans as our hero. For the superhero movie fan it is an enjoyable trip from the serials of the 1940's and through to the action packed hero movies of the late 1980s that began with Michael Keaton's "Batman" and beyond. “Captain America,” is based on a character that first appeared in comics and movie serials in the early 1940s along with all of the other escape heroes like Superman and Batman.
“Captain America” is not original in any of it's creativity. There are hints of Indiana Jones, 1940's serials (as stated before) and the movie, Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow. It does, however, take these things and make an enjoyable movie.
If you like your super heroes, you'll love this movie.
Great origin and awesome movie. This is one of the first super heroes ever and they did him justice. Chris Evans delivers! The movie starts off a little slow with him not being a super soldier right away but it touches on the many areas needed to load up for the Avengers. It's not non-stop action or too over the top but this is a good movie and great for the kids to see such a historic character on screen!
