Default (Spoilers) Did Anyone Else Find It Sad...

...near the end when Captain America and Peggy are sharing their last message before the jet crashes and Cap gets frozen? I won't lie, watching that moment tore me up emotionally because I grew to love both of their characters over the movie and thought they were great together, and I thought it was so sad they didn't get a chance to see each other again after that The ending even left me feeling kind of depressed, when Cap awoke in the present day to see things had changed so much and to think he never got to see Peggy after that. It just hit me hard emotionally and I even recall getting more than a little misty-eyed during that entire moment.

That scene was gutwrenching. I absolutely loved how they did it! It wasn't cliche, it was well acted. It was just so well done. It was the most emotional I have gotten for any of the films to this point in the Marvel Studios films. The romance was really well sold.

I agree, I really enjoyed how that very sad scene was played out.

Exactly! Their romance felt very organic and believable to me, which helped it greatly on an emotional level. It didn't feel forced at all.

I agree. I'm a tough guy type and I was even sad.


It was very well done.

I see phrases like gut-wrenching or tore up. I liked the scene, felt it had heart .... but am not in agreement with some of the hyperbole in here. I shed a tear in Forest Gump when he asks Jenny if his son is normal. Not during Cap though.

It might not have been tear worthy, but I definitely felt the impact of that ending.

A slight side not: I feel that in every single superhero movie to date prior to cap, the romantic subplot is the weakest link (including Superman the movie, Spider-man 2, TDK, and Iron Man). Not the case here. Congratulations Chris Evans and Hayley Atwell for bringing us the best romantic subplot in a superhero movie yet.

Count me as one of the guys who got misty eyed during that scene. I never cried at movies before but it's as close as I am ever gonna get. The romance between Steve and Peggy felt so real that I was very sad to see it come to this.

Definitely shed a tear. That scene made me want Hayley Atwell back for The Avengers as an older Peggy.

I actually got misty during the grenade scene. I knew it was coming because of the 2nd trailer, but it still got me...and I don't know why! Its not like it was sad. I think it effected me like that because I was so happy that they really nailed Rogers' character in that moment...and in many more as well!
What a freakin' great movie!

No it didn't. They wrote, paced, and acted that romance REALLY well. I was very impressed

It was! I felt it was easily the strongest romance Marvel has done so far.

The ending of Captain America left me with such a jumble of emotions. It was a rousing action film, but the raw loss Steve and Peggy experienced stayed with me afterwards. Even though I've known how this story would end ever since I first read about Cap's resurrection when I was five, those scenes still managed to break my heart. I ended up wiping away a tear or two as the credits rolled.

When Peggy opened the file with the picture of skinny Steve in it it was the teenage guys around me who said, "Aww!" I heard a lot of sniffling, too. Good thing it was dark in there....

I'm surprised (in a good way) to hear that this scene ended up getting such a great response from critics and fans alike.

Truth be told, a while back, I would have thought that things like how Thor's relationship with Jane was suddenly cut short, or how Bruce had to leave Betty at the end of TIH would have warranted this type of response, but it seems that Steve's fate and how they pulled it off was more effective in conveying the tragedy of his situation.

Hello all: I'm in agreement with you. Well-written and well-acted. Could they get away with casting Atwell as Sharon Carter in future Cap films? Best regards, Madelow.

I agree with all of this. However, I really felt that the last line of the film ("I had a date") wasn't allowed enough time to linger. After that line, the camera should have panned up over the city with some somber music. But instead, immediately after he says it, we jump into the credits with a rousing hero theme as if Cap had just uttered something like "I'm ready for another fight".

I was emotionally torn, here was Cap sacrificing himself to ensure the survival of NYC while talking to the first and only woman that truly loved him (pre-super solider) then Peggy admitting that he was her prefect dance partner and making a date to go dancing.

Cap placing Peggy photo in the cockpit window and then Peggy looking at Steve photo before becoming Captain America added to the emotional heartbreak that would follow.

When Steve wake up 70 years later and Fury tells him how long he was frozen for and asked if he was alright. The heartbroken look on Steve's face when he said "I had a date" was so well executed by Evans performance that I shed a tear of sadness.

IMO this was the best marvel movie romance so far.

Well, if I'm not mistaken, I think the scene with Fury wasn't filmed by Johnston and was supposed to be the post credit scene itself.

No offense, but I'm really glad you didn't direct this movie.
