Steve Rogers (Evans) finally gets his chance to make his country proud when he is accepted into an experimental program that turns him into a supersoldier called Captain America.

Is The Plot Interesting?

It’s the Captain America origin story so it definitely is going to be interesting if it’s done well and it is. You are pulled into the story of Captain America even if you’re not a fan of his.

Is The Acting Good?

The acting surprised me a lot because it was better than I’d expected. Chris Evans really does a great job at portraying Steve Rogers and the supporting cast were also just as excellent.

Is The Directing Good?

Joe Johnston knew what he was doing when he signed on to direct this movie and did a good job at delivering the first avenger’s story but I don’t think it’s the best directing I have ever seen.

Is The Cinematography Good?

The cinematography does contribute a little bit to the tone of the movie but not as much as I’ve seen on the screen before. It’s a little better than the average movie but only by a small fraction.

Is It Worth Watching?

In my opinion all marvel movies are worth a watch because they are just fun and entertaining movies and this movie isn’t an exception. If you’re a fan of marvel and Captain America you are going to love this movie.


I don’t want to kill anyone. I don’t like bullies; I don’t care where they’re from.
