Quick Movie Review – Captain America: the First Avenger

Captain America: The First Avenger

Steve Rogers: I know this neighborhood. I got beat up in that alley. And that parking lot. And behind that diner.

Has a much better grasp of the kind of light hearted comedy and action than Thor, and it does a pretty great job of evoking old comic books.  Unfortunately it also has some questionable decisions; namely deciding that Nazis weren’t evil enough, that the largest action sequence should be trimmed to a brief montage, and leaving the villain underdeveloped and unthreatening.

6.5/10
