Review
Definitely one of the better super hero movies done recently.Good story,good acting and followed closed to the comics as well. I thoroughly enjoyed myself watching Captain America.
I was initially alittle apprehensive about Chris Evans as the main actor.I liked him as the human torch and all but as the first avenger,I thought he would be alittle too fumy for it.But he did a great job.I liked the casting for this movie,it was just nice.Tommy Lee Jones was perfect for the role as Colonel.He had some pretty funny lines which did made the whole cinema laugh. I was most impressed with was none other than Hugo Weaving.The man was born to act as iconic villains.From his accent,to his haircut to his costumes and all.He was perfect as Red Skull. Heil Hydra! hahaha.Ok the salute was alittle silly.
Direction was pretty good and I loved the flow of the movie as well.And for once the plot stayed true to the comics. I just wished there was more scenes with Red Skull pitting against Captain America though.Perhaps maybe Loki brings him back in the upcoming Avengers movie? who knows eh.

All in all,Captain America was good and fun to watch.Worth watching on a weekend.Don't bother with the 3D though.
