Admittedly I just wanted to see that one scene where Chris Evans steps out of the machine transformed from a puny, little guy into a tall, muscular, lean, mean, fighting machine. It truly was one of the most spectacular things I've ever seen. I actually googled the movie to see if there was another actor portraying the skinnier Steve Rogers and I was stunned that there wasn't another actor or even a stunt double, it's all CGI! I was incredibly impressed by the smooth transition, but also the fact that the muscles are real. There are no effects used after the transformation so I think Chris Evans deserves a round and applause ladies and gentlemen, god knows how many hours he put into toning that physique!

The story revolves around Steve Rogers, a man desperately wants to do his bit for the country by fighting in the war, the only problem is, he was born into a body that simply wasn't made for fighting. Although his body is frail and weak, his mind and his heart are determined and thankfully for Steve the right people see this in him. Thus begins his transformation from Steve Rogers to Captain America. Some say that when this movie starts to go downhill when the action begins, but I don't think this is true. There are enough high powered leaps and shots fired without going over the top and they make your heart beat just that little bit faster.

The accents in this movie are superb. I've often found that a really good movie can be spoiled when just one character speaks with a terrible accent, thankfully, that is not a problem here. Hugo Weaving and Toby Jones do a particularly good German-English accent and I thought it was very convincing.

This is a fab origins tale and it delivers more than enough screenplay to compete with the frequent flash bang of sumptuous visuals. Chris Evans has bags of charm which makes him an accessible hero and it's easy to route for him as the under developed weakling who is turned into a super soldier via a secret research programme. Hugo Weaving makes for a dastardly villian as he chews up the scenery as the Red Skull. The supporting cast are excellent and the effects are first class. The armaments being used by Red Skull and his Hydra troops look a lot like a cross between Sky Captain & World Of Tomorrow [DVD] and The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen [2003] [DVD]. The movie is far less jingoistic than I had expected and much more fun than I dared to hope!

Marvel's Cinematic Universe has been a rather patchy effort. There have been good films, such as Iron Man, but there have also been deeply mediocre ones, such as Thor. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that this was one of their better efforts.

Like so many superhero flicks, this film is a retelling of its central hero's origin story. Of course, in Captain America's case, any such retelling must deal with two fundamental problems:

First, anyone with even the slightest acquaintance with the Marvel Universe knows exactly how this story ends, and the fates of all its major protagonists. Incidentally, for the sake of completeness, yes, I'm now giving you a SPOILER ALERT. But I promise I'm not going to give away anything that anyone who's ever read a Marvel comic book isn't fully aware of anyway.

The screenwriters deal with the problem that we already know how the story ends by beginning with that ending: the wreckage in an ice-strewn landscape where we all know the frozen body of Captain America lies, awaiting resurrection. The point is, they're letting us know that they know that we know. There's no pretence otherwise, so we can all just get on with it. They then go back and tell us the tale of how it all came to this.

Interestingly, quite early on, there is a scene in which the Red Skull is listening to a recording of the iconic "Siegfried's Death And Funeral Music". On one level it's an obvious, perhaps even trite choice of entertainment for a Nazi supervillain. Yet I can't help but wonder if there is a deeper point being made here.

Well what a great film! Less bombastic than many of its stablemates such as Thor [DVD], and The Incredible Hulk [DVD], but still a gripping and action-packed superhero origin story, with a central character you can actually care about, and a villain (played sparingly by the excellent Hugo Weaving), both menacing and convincingly otherworldly.
The film sets up the Caps' appearance in Marvel's Avengers Assemble nicely, and in Chris Evans has a restrained but instantly likeable persona. Loved it!

Captain America: The First Avenger is the fifth film in Marvel's phase one series of movies leading up to Avengers Assemble and of all of these films this is the one that made me the most nervous, I mean how do you turn Captain America into a film?

Just like this apparently.

This is obviously an origin story following Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) a kid from Brooklyn who's not that big, not very strong and with several ailments. He wants to do his part to fight the Nazis despite being stamped unfit for duty at several different recruitment centres. His heart is in the right place though, he is full of courage, values and strong moral character so is chosen for the super soldier serum created by Dr. Erskine (Stanly Tucci).

An awful lot of this film is about his character, not the powers, setting up who he is and I really loved that about it, it made me really like the character long before he became a superhero.

After Steve gets the serum the action really kicks in with him developing into a six foot ripped super soldier. The special effects used to transform him into a tiny weakling using lots of techniques are utterly convincing and really help you get drawn in. The costumes props and clothes designs fitting the era perfectly and most importantly redesigning his costume to be accurate yet more modern and not campy, the films visuals and atmosphere are spot on.

The action scenes as Captain America fights the evil organisation Hydra led by the menacing Red Skull (Hugo Weaving) are exciting and over the top yet feel realistic as Cap throws his shield around and performs daring attacks and raids with his squad The Howling Commandos.
