Captain America: The First Avenger

After being deemed unfit for military service, Steve Rogers volunteers for a top secret research project that turns him into Captain America, a superhero dedicated to defending USA ideals.

It is 1942, America has entered World War II, and sickly but determined Steve Rogers is frustrated at being rejected yet again for military service. Everything changes when Dr. Erskine recruits him for the secret Project Rebirth. Proving his extraordinary courage, wits and conscience, Rogers undergoes the experiment and his weak body is suddenly enhanced into the maximum human potential. When Dr. Erskine is then immediately assassinated by an agent of Nazi Germany's secret HYDRA research department (headed by Johann Schmidt, a.k.a. the Red Skull), Rogers is left as a unique man who is initially misused as a propaganda mascot; however, when his comrades need him, Rogers goes on a successful adventure that truly makes him Captain America, and his war against Schmidt begins.

    Captain America review

    This is quite simply one of the best superhero films out there. Chris Evans is a fantastic choice for Cap America, and redeems himself here for his terrible portrayal of The Human Torch in Fantastic Four.

    Stays away from the typical

    After being so used to the X-men and their powers I didn't think I would have a interest in a human who gains added strength. But the story does very well on its own away from marvel and dc. The character has been rejected for war duty because of his size and has always been teased. But it never stopped him from trying. An experiment changes that, to some degree. While he finally has what he wants, he is still mocked and is treated as more of a mascot instead of being allowed to help serve his country. When his friend and fellow soldiers are captured, he takes it into his own hands and more than proves his worth. He also proves that courage comes in all forms. I really enjoyed this movie, action all the way and with a great storyline. A must for the collection.
