But what's the problem with him using his upper body strength to open a locked door or using his leg strength to leap high? If you look at it as just a typical display of his ability instead of a moment that's supposed to be a highlight then there should be no issue. I understand that this is the "Super-soldier Action Thread" but does everything he does that's not your idea of super soldier action automatically become lame?
I'd be okay with those, if he also did more jaw-dropping feats in addition to them. Instead, we keep getting "meh" things like that.
Yes, moments like that are lame to me. That's just what I think. It doesn't have to become automatically lame to everyone else just because I think so. Perhaps I'll look back on those moments and like them more than I do now, after Cap has done some outrageous super-soldier feats in future movies. But for now, I'm just not feeling them because I know Cap can do more than that. What I'm expecting out of this character is very realistic when you consider who I'm talking about. Like another poster here mentioned, I want to see Cap doing more feats like the ones in this video.
I don't think that's asking too much at all. Cap is capable of doing that and a lot more. Imagine how much the theater would explode if Cap was doing things like that
in a movie. If you still don't understand where I'm coming from, I can't help you man.
