I enjoyed Cap, but I can definitely agree with many of the criticisms. The premise itself just doesn't lend well to good storytelling(Star spangled superhero winning a world war...right), and the final act was about as rote as it gets for the genre. Everything up to the point where he started going on missions with the Howling Commandos was golden, and it almost became a different movie from then on.
