Excerpt: In the next addition to the upcoming Avengers movie, slated for May 2010, a meek all American youth is transformed into the first ever Avenger i.e. Captain America. This Marvel Comics Hero was created back in the golden Age of comics books in the 1940’s by legends in the industry – Joe Simon and Jack Kirby who also helped Stan Lee create the likes of the Fantastic Four and the X-men.
Conclusion: It had been years since I had seen this version, and I have to say I actually enjoyed revisiting this Captain America after so long. It's unabashedly cheesy and shows its paltry budget virtually every step of the way, but it's a lot better than one might expect, considering the circumstances.
Excerpt: After being turned down by the army to fight in Europe due to his diminutive size, Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) is given an opportunity to take part in an experimental program that turns him into a "Super Soldier" with extraordinary strength and speed. Renamed Captain America, he soon finds himself on the frontlines facing the megalomaniacal Red Skull (Hugo Weaving) and his army of HYDRA agents who are equipped with high-tech energy weapons.
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. Up this week is â€œCaptain Americaâ€�, a movie which already had a full-length movie dedicated to its stars and stripes hero, but admittedly it wasn’t a very good one.
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. He embraces it, an entire action scene given to Cap with the iconic garb, creating a segway for Hollywood’s recent spin.
