CAPTAIN AMERICA - Movie Review

Oh my FREAKIN' GOSH!!!!!! Okay I'm totally gonna skip to the best part of the movie....after the credits roll, you get an AWESOME tease....THE AVENGERS PREVIEW!!!!!



FANDANGO BLURB:

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 America's ideals.

MY REVIEW

Okay, I'm biased and invested. I've seen all of the Avengers movies and I have enjoyed them. No...they weren't bada** (shut your mouth!) flicks that make me want to watch them over and over again. But, they are entertaining and kept my interest throughout. Not to mention --- who doesn't dig a hero (even though the villain stole the show in Thor...that a whole other story).

Sorry, I digressed. Here's my review:

I like this. Steve Rogers is my type of character. A boy bullied, beat up, kicked out, put upon and everything you can think of. But you know what - he never gave up. This movie covers the story of Captain America (the past him) back in the 40's and the villain is a bit quirky. Also, I would have really liked a bit more depth to the story, but it was still a good one. As far as it lining up to the comic book depiction it did so for the most part. There were little off points. Like Captain America was a king with Hand-To-Hand combat. But in the movie it was all about the shield. I give this movie 3.5 stars with stripes. And just so you know, I FREAKIN' totally enjoyed the tease trailer for THE AVENGERS!

I'm kind of surprised because I didn't like the Captain America preview. I'm glad to hear the movie is better than what I thought it would be.

Can't wait to see it. You haven't disappointed me yet with your movie reviews. Thanks for sharing this one - I was especially waiting for this one. Thought it was coming last month and the hubby and I were disappointed we had to wait. LOL Yeah, I'm that excited for a movie.

Yay Dawn! I'm glad you dig my reviews. Movies are our favorite thing to do for date night and we get a kick out of going to the opening shows midnight on Thursday nights. I know it's a sickness but it's the most excitement we get since having kids.
