So if you follow at twitter, you already know that last night we all got together to see Captain America + it was Johnny's first cinema movie after he got back in Greece! It was one awesome day ^^
I think Captain America is more of an introduction movie for both the Avengers and Captain America as a character. I have to admit that i liked the fact they didn't rush it to get in the main action, but took their time before Rogers actually became the Captain America. It was also nice to see, after Green Lantern, that the movie was not around the romance with the girl (thank god!).
Know, even as a story and flow was really good it had some moments were you grinned, like how there is always one asian, one black guy on each movie out there, no matter if they fit the roles or the parts of the story. But in general i really liked what i was watching. It had its calm moments, its action and he funny ones.
There were also many known actors in the movie. With Chris Evans doing an amazing job as Captain America. For some reason playing the good boy instead of the girls guy, he was in Fantastic Four, suit him more and i think it was one of his good movies. Tommy Lee Jones was different and it was nice to see him in something after a really long time. I think the last movie i saw with him was Men In Black II. And another big name that i was happy to see, was Hugo Weaving! For some reason i love that guy no matter if he is the good or the bad in the movie. He just has something and he is always so good in his roles.
The music was not my style but definitely fitted the movie. And for another time, congrats to the special effects team for doing such an amazing job! That aspect was better than Green Lantern as well but there was no doubt on that. Marvel Studios never has problem with their special effects.
If you are into superhero movies, Captain America totally worth your time. It's a bit more serious than the rest of the superhero movies though. But still really good! For some reason it felt like a really good adaption of the comics.
P.S: Yay for an even more awesome Thor at the Avengers trailer at the end of the movie. Woot woot!
