Captain America

The hokiest of all comic book super heroes has made it to the big screen. Even as a kid, I knew there was something different about Captain America. You think Superman is a generic name? Woof.

But I will have to give it to Marvel. They've done a great job of getting all their characters made into movies. And this movie, like the first Iron Man, can stand on it's own two legs while fitting into a greater puzzle.

Tommy Lee Jones, Stanley Tucci, Hugo Weaving and even Chris Evans do a great job in this movie. It's really a wholesome action flick. Set during World War II, our hero is a scrawny wimp who just wants to serve in the Army. As fate would have it, he ends up getting help from some scientists to be the top solider.

Just like Cap't himself, not a lot to say, but I'm glad this movie was released at the end of July, so it has a chance of hanging out in multiplexes for a little longer when the fall suck arrives.

Did you enjoy it?

Would you see it in theaters again?
Maybe. It was midnight the first time.

Would you buy it?

Would you rent it?

Would you watch it if you saw it was on TV?
