Captain America, The First Avenger : After being deemed unfit for military service, Steve Rogers volunteers for a top secret research project that turns him into Captain America, a superhero dedicated to defending USA ideals.
Welcome to another Film review, in today's review I will looking at the first Captain America film from 2011 which sees the launching of the Captain America Film franchise into our age. It opens up a lot of doors for people and explores the diverse avenue's of Marvel's Characters who are very protective of their comics and care about their characters.
For those who are unaware of Captain America he is an American fictional character, a superhero who appears in comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character first appeared in Captain America Comics Issue 1 (cover-dated March 1941) from Marvel Comics' 1940s predecessor, Timely Comics, and was created by Joe Simon and Jack Kirby.
Now today it is a creation like all the Marvel characters still going strong and developing to be better. In terms of effect and course to effect I studied this film as being a piece of intellect. It's not one of the greatest action superhero films ever made. If anything it's like Spider man and in every sense of the word a fair movie.
So it is 1942, America has entered the second World War. Sickly but determined Steve Rogers is frustrated at being rejected yet again for military service. Everything changes when Doctor. Erskine recruits him for the secret confidential "Project Rebirth."
Proving his extraordinary courage, wits and conscience, Rogers undergoes the experiment and his weak body is suddenly enhanced into the maximum human potential. When Dr. Erskine is then immediately assassinated by an agent of Nazi Germany's secret HYDRA research department (headed by Johann Schmidt, a.k.a. the Red Skull), Rogers is left as a unique man who is initially misused as a propaganda mascot; however, when his comrades need him, Rogers goes on a successful adventure that truly makes him Captain America, and his war against Schmidt begins.
Here's a trailer
So what do I think of Captain America, well It is a film that prioritises itself on pleasing a fair percentage of it's fans. It stays true to the comics, but also is diverse at the same time. I like the story of the first film a lot, It is great at setting up a starting block in order to get potential stories up and going as well, so it's very part and parcel.
I think the acting, is secondary in comparison to the effects used in it, but again it just relates back to the fact that Marvel produce a live action comic book onto the screen and there's only so much you can do today. But for me, It is essential that you have everything on equal terms which film fails to do.
So I do like this film, but in some cases it lets itself down and for that reason I am inclined to give it a 6/10.
