Long and short, Cap is now in modern time as a full S.H.I.E.L.D. agent and wondering about his place in our world. He carries out shadow op missions for Nick Fury, yet does not connect with anyone in the "modern world" including his co-worker, Black Widow (Scarlett Johanssen). The only venture he makes to connecting with the present is with Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie) a fellow soldier and veteran. There is an instant bond between them because of their war time experience and the two translate very well on film as Cap and the eventual "Falcon", Cap's long time partner/friend from comics lore. Mackie has been giving strong performances for years and it is good to see him in a successful mega franchise where his talent can be noticed on a much greater scale.Read more ›
I also like the relevancy of the story. Stan Lee started out Marvel Comics on the premise "What if super-heroes existed in the real world?" The rest is history, as Marvel quickly outsold DC's childish (but still worthwhile) take on super-heroes. Captain America comics of the 1960s were full of espionage and intrigue and this movie captures that feeling very well. Only, why did they change it from "Supreme Headquarters International Espionage Law-Enforcement Division" to "Strategic Homeland Intervention Enforcement and Logistics Division?" What am I saying? Filmmakers love to change things.
I also enjoyed the introduction of the Falcon (Anthony Mackie) and the bond he forms with Steve. Captain America being forced to fight a former sidekick with the help of a new sidekick is interesting. The one part of the film I didn't like was the scene when Cap leaps off what looks like a ten-storey building and just lands in a tuck roll and gets up running like it's no problem. Sorry, but Cap shouldn't be able to do that. He makes it look easy when even Spider-Man would have trouble with that.Read more ›
And here's the the thing: I prefer my superhero movies as grounded in reality as possible, and this one is (outside of the whole super soldier frozen for decades thing). It's just action and shield-throwing. The fight choreography is really well done. Nothing looks fake and like someone was overzealous with the CGI. It looks like it could happen if you walked around the wrong corner in America.
I think you should watch and own this movie. The release itself is unastounding (no major Blu-ray extras here) but the movie is great.
In this film Captain America (Chris Evans) is attempting to catch up. He is losing some of the dorkiness which made him lovable. He teams up with the Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) because she tested well with male audiences in the 8 to 80 age bracket. Iron Man is mentioned, but it seems the rest of the Avengers are on vacation during the struggle for humanity.
This film has a decent plot (i.e. fitting bad guys for good guys) with a good mix of action and drama. It even has some light moments such as when our twosome are among some old computers and Black Widow does her 1983 "WarGames" voice and proclaims, "Shall we play a game?" Of course Captain America can't catch the humor.
Great popcorn film that explodes on the screen. I enjoyed this more than the recent Thor film.
