After being deemed unfit for military service, Steve Rogers volunteers for a top secret research project that turns him into Captain America, a superhero dedicated to defending the USA’s ideals.(IMDb)
Ok, it’s official. This is my favorite of the Pre-Avengers movies. Hands down. It has a really solid plot, great acting, awesome special effects, and it ties in perfectly to The Avengers. (It probably doesn’t hurt that this was the last one before Avengers haha). But I loved the story of it. How even though his actual powers came from an experiment, he had to be a good person in the first place in order for it to truly work. Also appreciated the fact that they weren’t afraid to put major characters in danger. It makes it less predictable and more emotional when something does happen. Chris Evans is a fantastic Captain America, Haley Atwell kicks ass, and Stanley Tucci has a German accent. Basically, I was sold. A really impressive super hero movie, can’t wait for the second one.
