Captain America: The First Avenger

Hey guys!
This post marks the first one in a series of 22, all dedicated to the films of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Before watching Endgame, I had some catching up to do. In fact, I had to watch pretty much all the films. 🙈
The first movie I tackled was Captain America: The First Avenger, as this is set furthest in the past. Let’s get down to it!

The Plot:

Steve Rogers is a scrawny little guy who desperately wants to enlist in the army just like his best friend Bucky Barnes. However, due to health reasons, he’s turned down again and again. That is until he is approached by a scientist who has his super soldier serum to test. That’s when Captain America is born…

The Rating:

Please don’t hate me for saying that I wasn’t too impressed by this film. I enjoyed, and it sparked my interest in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, it wasn’t really different from other superhero films I had seen before. Also, the Nazi story arc wasn’t too inventive.

Nevertheless, Captain America has some interesting aspects to offer!
First of all, I love the fact that the damsel in distress is actually not Peggy Carter, but Bucky Barnes. He’s the one Cap has to save. Peggy can totally hold her own. Her punching that one idiot was one of my favorite scenes of the entire film.

What irritated me a bit was scrawny Steve. That wasn’t Chris Evans’ body, they had used a body double and simply put his head on there. It kind of showed. There was something just a little off about the entire look. It wasn’t terribly obvious or super weird, but I noticed it anyway.

Captain America is not the most unique superhero movie. However, if you are a fan of the genre, you will enjoy this film. Even though I wasn’t really into that stuff before, the film managed to spike my interest. I did enjoy but just wasn’t all too impressed.
