Let me get this out of the way up front: Captain America: The First Avenger is a great movie. Stanley Tucci, Hugo Weaving, and Tommy Lee Jones give strong performances, as you’d expect. The action was fun and exciting. Chris Evans made Steve Rogers grounded and likeable. It’s refreshing to see a truly heroic superhero. Not an antihero or a reluctant hero, but a plain, old fashioned do-gooder. If you haven’t seen it, you should. It’s a worthy addition to Marvel Studios’ body of work.
That being said, I kind of hated it.
