Captain America is one of the coolest new additions in the superhero movie genre!
America (played perfectly by the perfectly cast Chris Evans, Fantastic Four, The Losers) hands down has one of the best superhero costumes brought to life from comic to film ever!
The great thing about Captain America is it so finely made, if you took out America and his nemesis Red Skull (Hugo Weaving, V for Vendetta, Lord of the Rings), the movie would be a great 1940's drama/war film involving Nazis and pre-Captain America aka Steve Rogers' quest to be admitted to the army to fight them. There isn't tons of action, like in some of the other superhero summer movies of 2011, Thor and X-Men: First Class, but that's what makes Captain America so classy. But when the action hits, it's worthwhile!
The ending is so cool and maybe one of the best superhero movie endings I've seen in awhile! There's a post-credits scene that had the audience at my showing hooting and hollering at the epic-ness of the continuation. A Captain America sequel is definitely in the works--- as it should be!
