Captain America

Captain America was awesome!!! Like Thor it didn't overuse CG effects, and gave character developement as much care as it did the action scenes. I did not see it in 3D because a.) Im boycotting 3D, and b.) being half blind in one eye 3D isn't in 3D for me, it only looks blurry. It's definitely one of the better done comic book movies, and certainly one of the better movies to come out this year. It felt more like the older adventure movies like Raider's of the Lost Ark rather than a modern day special effects brain dead action movie, and I really liked that. They even make a couple allusions to raiders of the lost ark for laughs, which I found funny... but aparently I was the only one in the audience that got the jokes, because i was the only one laughing at them. I had to explain them to the girl I went to the show with afterward. Come on people, it's freakin indiana jones!!! who hasn't seen Indiana Jones?

Hugo Weaving (Elrond in Lord of the Rings, Agent Smith in the Matrix, V in V for Vendetta) is perfect as the Red Skull, and you can tell he's having the time of his life with the role, which makes him a really fun character in the movie. The makeup effects are WAY better than older captain america movies too, he actually looks like his head is a red skull. The guy they got for Captain America is pretty good too, i forget his name. It was a little weird to have his head CGed onto a scrawny guy's body before he became Captain America, but most of the time they did a good enough job of it that you can't tell it's been CGed. There are a few times, though, when it's really obvious and looks really strange.

Anyway, I really liked it, and I definitely reccomend it to anyone looking for a fun action adventure movie this summer. And remember to stay until the end of the credits there is a teaser trailer for the Avengers afterward.
