Captain America: The Review

Eh. Kinda slow paced, plot is kinda thin, action is so so, weapons and vehicles are rather unbelievable for 1943, and the ending was a slight downer. Not a bad movie, per se, but not worth, at best, an afternoon matinee for the 2D version. The 3D was kinda boring. The character development was sparse. The dialogue was tepid, though Tommy Lee Jones did breath some life into a few lines. Even Hugo Weaving was kinda….boring, and if Hugo can’t bring a movie to a higher rating…

I’ll give it a C and a “wait for the DVD”.

Looks like a bunch of people at Rotten Tomatoes disagree with me. Oh, well.

    I agree. Hugo was a boring matrix guy. And, they never explained how red skull became red skull. Or at least I slept through it.

    I was lost from the get go when human-flesh disintegrating lasers, carbon-fiber bullet-proof outfits, multi-jet engined planes, rotary rockets planes, and huge laser-tanks began rolling out.

    And all our guys had were grenades and shotguns, but we won?

    But then, we believed in the super soldier program and adamantium.

    And, I thought Bucky lasted along time with Cap… but he gets killed off early on in the adventuring. Wasn’t he supposed to be very athletic and martial-arty?

    And, everyone treats Cap as nothing special and people know who he is, but no one cares. Not even the bad guys. They kill off the professor, but not Cap?

    I liked the idea of the story and Cap’s acting wasn’t too bad. But, we really didn’t see much of his “special-ness”. We saw him jump and use his shield to bash a few bad guys, but….

    I say, wait for the cheap rental.

  2. True, the acting wasn’t bad, the script was just, shall we say, unenthusiastic. There was no atmosphere of “F*ck yeah, Captain America!” It was more like “hey, Cap’s here. Want a beer?”

    Actually, the movie to see is.. ZOOKEEPER.

    its funny. hilarious.

  4. Hmm, might have to check it out. I’m looking forward to Cowboys and Aliens, will go see it next week, whatever day I have off.

    What looks really stupid and boring is the remake of Fright Night. The trailer was a snoozer.

    C&A?? I hope there is a storyline more than just a guy wearing a bracelet
