Ileana’s Movie Review: Captain America – The First Avenger


Starring: Chris Evans, Hugo Weaving, Tommy Lee Jones, Stanley Tucci

Summary: In 1942 Steve Rogers (Evans) wanted nothing more than to proudly serve his country, but his small physique and health problems held him back. Luckily, he met Dr. Erskine (Tucci) who recruits him for a top-secret military project to create the ultimate soldier. The procedure works and Captain America is born .At first the government uses him as a promotional tool to sell more war bonds, but Rogers feels his talents are going to waste.

When Rogers hears that his best friend has been captures behind enemy lines he decides to rescue him, even if he has to do it alone. During the rescue he encounters his arch-nemesis Johann Schmidt a.k.a. Red Skull and learns of his plans for world domination. With this new information Rogers is given the green light to create a special-ops team to take down Red Skull and save the world.

My favorite aspect of this film is the look of it. Everything from the costumes to the sets captured the essence of WWII America. I also loved Chris Evans as Steve Rogers. Usually Evans’ roles have a bit of dry wit to them but Steve Rogers is a pretty straight-laced guy. He’s basically a really buff boy scout and Evans manages to pull it off well. Captain America represents a simpler time in this country where patriotism and chivalry were a part of everyday life.

Trivia: Chris Evans declined the role of Steve Rogers three times before he finally accepted the part. Stanley Tucci took the role of Dr. Erskine because it allowed him to use a German accent, which he always wanted to do.

Rated: PG-13 – For intense sequences of sci-fi violence and action.

Grade: A
