Excerpt: Skinny Steve Rogers wants to join the US military to help fight the evil Nazi’s as he doesn’t like bullies, no matter where they live. However, his physical condition is all but great and as such he’s already been rejected multiple times.
Excerpt: And here we go again. I’m sure it’s the time of year, but it seems that every week I’m writing about a new super hero movie that’s jettisoned its way to Blu-Ray.

Excerpt: It’s refreshing to see a super hero embrace his roots. Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) is pushed into a government program, bulked up in a matter of minutes, and then dons the classic Captain America suit and shield. He doesn’t turn it down or reject it for the sake of modern audiences.
Summary: And so the preliminaries are finished. But this is much more than just a prelude to a massive film coming next spring. This is a series of good franchise films that I expect to stand on their own long after that massive film has come and gone.
Summary: 'Captain America' wowed me the first time I viewed it. The second time, which just so happened to be the very next day, did the same. This is a fun, action filled romp, and has colorful characters, a good story, and plenty of great callbacks.
Captain America: The First Avenger (Blu-ray Review)
25 October 2011
Conclusion: Captain America: The First Avenger is an average film at best, but the Blu-ray has some great special features, and the video and sound kick it up a notch. I do consider Captain America: The First Avenger the weakest of all of the latest super hero films involving a member of The Avengers.
