The last time Chris Evans played a superhero things didn't go well at all. But now that he's done with being an annoying ball of fire, he gets to play a better hero who is more likable and realistic. (Albeit, taking a super-human serum.) In Captain America, Steve Rogers wants to join WWII to fight for his country and show his patriotism. The only problem is that he is incrediby skinny and he has the medical history of a 90 year old which means he isn't allowed to enlist. At first I though it was a different actor playing skinny Steve but when he spoke I realized it was Chris Evans with a bunch of special effects added to make him look skinny and weak. The effects to do so were great, they did a really good job of making him look like one bitch-slap could put him in a coma. Rogers however is able to enlist because his loyalty to America and expression of self-sacrifice is the one trait the army is looking for to turn him into a super-soldier.I really liked how the whole thing played out; his transformation into this big buff guy isn't forced or rushed and it felt natural to watch the whole thing play out, I actually bought his development, realistically speaking. I also think Chris Evans did a really good job as Captain America and so did the rest of the cast. Tommy Lee Jones is always fun to watch, Hayley Atwell played her part as an army chick really well and I even liked Dominic Cooper as Howard Stark, the father of Tony Stark/Iron Man. The real show stealer though was Hugo Weaving as Red Skull. I think he displayed how sinister, arrogant and ruthless his character was perfectly. Whoever plays him next in the reboot (It's inevitable, all for $$$$$) has his work cut out for him. As usual with Marvel movies, the special effects and action were well done, but I think a few action scenes in the movie were somewhat rushed. One part has it all in montage and I would've liked to see most of what they were doing play out with a slower pace. A really cool thing to watch in this movie (besides a funny Stan Lee cameo) is Captain America gradually develop into a superhero. At first the army uses his super-soldier stature and courage as a tool for propaganda to get people to jion the war and send in bonds, but he decides that he wants to fight for his country. He goes out to fight, he rescues a bunch of POWS and he becomes a symbol of patriotism in the war and also the ultimate hero...until Howard Stark's son gets a hold of certain technology. Overall, the movie has really good acting, a well paced storyline, a ruthless villain, a likable hero and some fun action scenes, despite feeling rushed, which is my only complaint. Otherwise, go see it, it's a great Avengers setup and a really well done superhero movie.
