Captain America: The First Avenger is a great movie that tells us one of Marvel's best origin stories. Chris Evans is great in the role of Captain America and it was great to see how Steve grew up and why he wanted to be in the military. This is a solid movie with great fight scenes but the villain wasn't engaging enough. I like Red Skull and it was disappointing to see him being an unengaging character. I feel like they wasted a great opportunity. The setting is unique and the romance between Steve and Peggy wasn't random. However the ending was rushed and it felt like Marvel concentrated on making this film lead up to the Avengers rather then concluding the ending in a brilliant way. But overall Captain America The First Avenger is a entertaining Marvel movie.

My only gripe with this film is that the ending left me with a ton of questions that won't get answered untill next year when infinity war part 2 comes out. But other than that, I really enjoyed infinity war. The film did a great job balancing out the many characters that were in the film, and they were all just as great as they were in previous films, the action is plentiful, and a lot of fun to boot, and the film is very suspenseful and had me on the edge of my seat the whole time. It's definitely worth checking out. But it's very clear that it's part 1 of a 2 part film.

Well-crafted and extremely fun adventure film that works on every level but lacks a the bit of sub-text that pushes it over the top. It's simply a straight good vs. evil story, that while enjoyable, doesn't resonate as much as "X-Men: 1st Class" or "Dark Knight", providing no shades of gray to make you think (for example, the Howling Commandos is an inter-racial military unit in what was then a segregated U.S. military is never addressed). However, there is still plenty to like, especially comic book fans who will be freeze framing every second of this film for the numerous Easter Eggs. Plus, both Chris Evans & Hugo Weaving shine in their respective roles of Captain America & the Red Skull. A very good film but it could have been great.
