Review of Captain America: The First Avenger

captain-america-the-first-avenger

So far this was the best on-screen adaptation for Captain America. I know that’s not saying much but still. All in all it was ok.

I liked the new take on the Cap/Bucky relationship with Bucky being the mentor instead of Cap.

My main concern with this movie is that just about the entire cast was underutilized and it has a really good cast. I mean it has Hugo Weaving and Tommy Lee Jones but both of their performances were below the caliber of acting we’re used to from them.

I thought the action scenes were lackluster too after what we’ve been treated too in previous Marvel fair.

While it was acceptable I think it was the weakest of the new breed of Marvel movies except for Iron Man 2.
