Captain America: The First Avenger Reviews

David Nusair
Reel Film Reviews

...a cut above its lackluster Marvel brethren for most of its running time (if only because it primarily resembles an actual movie more than it does a collection of special effects sequences).

The First Avenger is Marvel's strongest movie since Iron Man, but it's actually more of an old-fashioned WWII adventure than it is a typical superhero blockbuster.

Big Hollywood

A lifeless and clichéd action film that never lives up to its title or its title characters' ideals.

Deadspin

It's difficult to dislike "Captain America" too much, because it's harmless and innocuous and, unlike almost every other tentpole summer movie, isn't secretly trying to give the audience a seizure.

The result is fun and refreshingly retro.

Jason Buchanan
TV Guide's Movie Guide

A whizz-bang, retro-futuristic adventure that mercifully eschews the brooding Dark Knight trend to offer an exhilarating thrill ride that perfectly captures the enduring optimism of the 1940s.

Even next to Thor, a movie about a space god with a magic hammer, Captain America: The First Avenger was always going to be one of Marvel's trickiest properties to do justice to.

Lyles' Movie Files

"With arguably the best supporting cast of the bunch, a cut-and-dried hero's hero who isn't portrayed as some cornball cheesy and a direct lead in to 'The Avengers,' this is my favorite of the Avengers set ups."

As good a film version as can be made in this day and age by unapologetically embracing the square do-gooder nature of the character and concept.

A slam-bang good time, Captain America: The First Avenger is one of Marvel's better efforts.

What the film can never overcome, though it mightily tries via superior score, costumes, and atmosphere, is the inanity of its premise.

As the delightfully over-the-top Red Skull, Hugo Weaving has the most fun playing a noseless villain since Ralph Fiennes lopped his off as Voldemort.

Proves to be a riveting roller coaster ride from beginning to end, basically because it relies on a winning recipe featuring all the fixins needed to hold your undivided attention.

Combines the right elements of brisk storytelling and light touches of comedy without resorting to gimmicks or bombast.
