Captain America Review

Well I know I'm late to the party but I finally got to see Captain America. I wanted to see this when it was out in the theaters but circumstances kept me from doing so. Well I got it on blu-ray today and sat down immediately to watch and I have to say I absolutely LOVED it!! Great origin story, cool special effects and some very cool action scenes. Chris Evens is perfect for the character of Steve Rogers. They spent the first 1/3 of the movie with a "smaller" Steve and showed how great a person he really is. I loved that character and how he was portrayed. I like the idea of taking someone who is a "good" person and enhancing the good to great. Maybe because I'm short and have dealt with how people treat short people that I identified so much with him. I liked the romance between Steve and Peggy.. it was sweet and genuine... though heartbreaking. Tommy Lee Jones was great as always and of course I can't blog about this movie without mentioning the awesome effects of making Chris Evens look like a 100 pound super skinny guy. I watched the 'extra' on the blu-ray on how they did this and was surprised that they used several techniques. It's a pretty amazing effect. So glad I got this on blu-ray as I can see myself watching this over and over. I was excited for The Avengers but after seeing this I am even more excited.

  1. Glad you enjoyed it Kenny. It was easily my favorite of the three big superhero movies this summer.
