Default Re: The Official Captain America: The First Avenger Review Thread! - Part 1

Positives:
-Evans as Cap. So many funny/charming/heroic moments
-Peggy/Cap chemistry
-Red Skull / Zola are hilariously entertaining
-A few cool action shots
-Great climax with Cap sacrificing himself.

Negatives:
-At times it feels HFR. Maybe it's the digital cam shots. Whatever it is, I'm not a fan.
-Underwhelming action
-Set design / lighting. A lot of indoor scenes feel very sterile.
-Howling Commandos are lame.
-The third act overall loses steam.
-Some poor integration of CG backdrops.
-The ending is tonally awkward. ("I had a date."/ jingoistic marching music!)

However, the charm of this movie prevails for me. 7/10.

My MCU rankings:
Thor (7/10)
Captain America (7/10)
Iron Man (6.5/10)
Iron Man 3 (6.5/10)
The Avengers (6/10)
Iron Man 2 (5.5/10)
Thor: The Dark World (5/10)
The Incredible Hulk (4.5/10)
