Captain America: The First Avenger
With With, Reviewed By Kimmo Mustonenen
Back on the good old days as a new superhero epic didn’t look on film screens apparently every other week, film producers used to satisfy we, us, the public with nothing more than bare exhibitionism.
Now they are just a bore.
Or am I exhausted (thanks for the tired, Transformers)?
Captain America: The First Avenger has strong opening times, a noble execution for sure.
Unfortunately they cannot this standard of the quality support and into crappy melodrama in the last hour ignore (if you can stay awake – yet so loud, how can you sleep?).
This is a dishonor, because a world-striking film of the Captain America could have caused indisputable momentum (my new superhero name!) for The Avengers.
Unfortunately, it is to be not.
Which we have here something I condemn to be underneath the average film, by choppy drawing up and the characters of one dimension (more on this later).
As Thor early in the season, Captain America: The First Avenger is requested, in order to do a terrible lot. And that is to explain to us the origin of a Marvel Comics guy, who we don’t know – also to his friends, the family and the sidekicks, then place it in world saving an adventure to the exhibition.
Suggest a point of romance and prepare for its inevitable sequels as part of the next years studio profits generator, known as The Avengers. Ka-ching!
Chris Evans plays as Steve Rogers – a child of Brooklyn, would like so much his country to serve, and would like the leading role to beat the Nazis in the Second World War (and in the face).
Unfortunately he’s a small guy – with many physical problems, thus Rogers is deemed unsuitable – he even tries to register several times under different names and with different physicians completely around New York.
This has gotten the attention of Dr. Abraham Erskine (Stanley Tucci) – a mysterious scientist working with defense contractor Howard Stark (Domenic Cooper), American Colonel Chester Phillips (Tommy Lee Jones) and British agent Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) to develop a medical procedure to turn everyday soldiers into super soldiers.
In Finland, we call these push-ups.
When the procedure works, how can Steve Rogers best serve his country?
He best serves it by not being in a movie as lousy as The Green Hornet but that is not too hard.
Well, he becomes Captain America.
Most badly of all, Captain America: The First Avenger we get like two films, which are in one smashed.
We could have been with the first part of the film contently, with the Rogers and his abilities discovered and prove ourselves, a hero to be, but director Joe Johnston and the writing team believed to the necessity to go back and start a whole again other plotline over Nazi badasses, which tries to stand for one even still more bad leader than Hitler (what?!?) bent on world domination, Johann Schmidt (Hugo Weaving).
Is this Captain America nemesis number one? Better to save him for the upcoming sequel movie. This one is too long.
So, I give one drooping thumb.
Movie is in 3D, too bad script arrived in 2D – which is still 1D better than the acting!
Sad face for me.
Sad face for Captain America: The First Avenger.
