Captain America: The First Avenger review

Posted : 2 years, 11 months ago on 2 August 2011 12:14 (A review of Captain America: The First Avenger)

Captain America: The First Avenger is a masterpiece. At least, the first half of the movie is. As a fan of the comics, I could not imagine a better depiction of the origins of Steve Rogers. I was at first unsure of Chris Evans being cast as the titular hero, but my doubts were silenced in the greatest way possible. In fact, the entire cast put in great performances. Tommy Lee Jones is perfect in the role of... well, Tommy Lee Jones, and though he may not be a convincing German, Hugo Weaving is certainly a convincing villain. The entire movie gives off a traditional hero vibe, and gives us a hero we care for.

Then, about the halfway mark, the movie goes downhill.

The second half of the movie, while not bad, is nowhere near as engaging as the first. The action is rushed on a level I've never seen in a superhero movie, and many of the supporting characters are lazily glazed over (Bucky Barnes and The Howling Commando's are particularly affected by this.) However, the emotional value the film began with returns at the end, which even though we all knew about it, still managed to make us feel sorry for the good old Captain.

And of course, after the credits, we do have a trailer for the Avengers movie. It does not show much, but nevertheless I am excited.

Overall, Captain America starts out Perfect, but is not able to keep this standard throughout. Regardless, The First Avenger is still well worth a viewing, and stands as one of the top movies of the year so far.

7/10
