Evans still has boyish looks and demeanour; the outfit is a watered down version of Captain America; Red Skull is not a villain, it's just make up and special effects, nothing else, a void character; Bucky's death is irrelevant, cause it doesn't have the perfect timing it has in the comics, leaving Cap hopeless and desperate at the end of the war, to wake up in another time and place: in the movie, it's just a cliché of "dead friend" that strenghtens his motivation; poor Atwell is also a cliché of the "strong woman". Etc, etc, etc.

The first act almost convinced me it would be a good ride: it has some "Riders of the Lost Ark" thing about it, but the cheap patriotic innuendo is already spoiling the story. After the first act, it's downright crap.

It's 3 out of 10, for me.

Even worse: the last photos from Cleveland are terrible. Captain America's look is a DISASTER. His boots look like sneakers, his cap and all his outfit are from some Comic Con (Thor is also looking cheap). How can they make such mistakes after almost 20 years of perfecting the translation comicbook - cinema? Beats me.

Oh well. Maybe it is the end of superhero movies. And seeing Catwoman in Nolan's upcoming Dark Knight Rises, doom is spread in all directions.
I'm not surprised at all that you didn't like it. You seemed predisposed to the result from day one. You're certainly entitled to your opinion, but you should acknowledge that you're in a very small minority.

Just came back from the theatre.
Loved it! It was good imo, equal to Thor.

Saw this last weekend. Quite enjoyed it. Proably on about the same level as Thor.

A few positives and negatives...

Negatives:
- Ending feels tacked on, especially since there's a moment earlier that feel like a natural ending to the movie.
- Red Skull wasn't very menacing.
- Some of the action could've been better.
- What happens in the end with the cube
Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
most likely sending Red Skull to Asgard
isn't set up in any way earlier.
Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
not even with like a mention to make sure not to touch it


Positives:
- A good few Raiders like moments. ("Fellas..." comes to mind)
- No painfully patriotic/jingoistic moments
- Alan Silvestri's score
- Actors and casting in general.
- Howard Stark!

Back to the ignore list with you, for good this time. If kingmatte hadn't quoted you I'd have missed this last post, which is full of crap just like everything else you've spewed out over the years. Good riddance.

Quite frankly I was kind of surprised at how little cheap patriotic innuendo there was in there. In fact I can't think of a single moment of it except possibly the song and dance bit, and that was obviously done with tongue placed squarely in cheek.

BRAVO MERCURIUS!

You have just posted one of the most predictably negative reviews on the site. Good job sir! I knew that if you were to ever post a review, it will make me wonder if we were watching the same movie.

Now, what am I going to say that you're wrong on now? Is it Evans not being a good Steve/Captain, Red Skull being not being a villain and being just make-up, or Hayley Atwell being a cliche' of a strong woman. In a surprise, I'll do Atwell (pun accidentally intended ).

Peggy Carter was more than a tough chick, she was a fully developed character who has not only shown she has the toughness of the soldier, but also she has the softness and sensitivity to not just any Soldier, but to Steve, and not for superficial reasons at all. Atwell was great who was very compelling, as she punches a guy and knocks him silly in the first scene she's in!

Evans did not have a Boyish demeanor. I didn't see Chris Evans. What I did see was Steve Rogers come to life. His determination, his demeanor, his willingness to do anything possible in order to be able to fight for his country in WWII because his strong belief in America ideals (even if it would get him arrested) was emphasized perfectly by Evans. I had no problems with the costume as we argued many times before, so I'm not even going down that road.

The Red Skull, is pure evil. He's just an maleficient bastard hell bent on taking over the world. There's no underdoing it, no underselling it, or no sympathetic bone in his body. Weaving did that well and I love that the movie didn't even make an effort to give a single grain of sympathy. He was a guy who attempted to be made a bigger evil than Hitler!

And Cheap patriotic innuendo? Honesty, I find that laughable. The USO show scenes were one of the most well done parts of the movie. It helped immerse us in that era even more while also giving Rogers inspiration for the costume. Speaking of Rogers, I'm glad that he enjoyed doing the USO shows and that gave him inspiration for the costume.

Mercurius, you bashed this movie since before Evans was cast. We knew you were going to hate. I was waiting on what excuses you would use. I still doubt you're even Captain America fan, and I don't think I've ever heard anything positive from you're mouth either. I'm gonna come to the conclusion of poor taste, but I really expect anything more from you anyway.

You can doubt whatever may please you, I'm really democratic, as opposed to those who can't take criticism here (and consider themselves Captain America fans, ha!).

As to the part in which you write reasonably and not personally: we disagree. Couldn't see the Red Skull as a threat, and his line saying that Captain America is "special" was the top of all his many weaknesses as a character (it is only there to give Cap the chance to say his cocky line).

Atwell is beautiful and talented, but her character is a common cliché, not a fully developed character: all we know about her is linked to what she is through Cap's eyes.

When the "right thing" is to enlist, when all the metaphors are concentrated in proving this point, you have patriotic mindwash running wild. Maybe you didn't notice, but I needed to point that out.

In Iron Man, the smart script revised his origin story to add some perspective: I was hoping the same would happen to Cap.

It is not Evans fault, of course, but he is, for me the wrong casting choice for the role.

I bashed the movie cause I felt it was going in the wrong direction. Now that I saw it, my concerns were justified.

Mercurius, don't say people who loved this movie are NOT Captain America fans. That is stupid and flat out asking for trouble in a Captain America forum. Now, no one should question your fandom. You don't like it? Then don't do the same thing. 2 wrongs don't make a right.

Yep, I agree, kingmatte.

And I wouldn't trade my direct and honest evaluation for a thoughtless place in any kind of comfortable, ass-slaping majority.

I didn't say they aren't. Read again: I made a comparison of attitude.

I accept, without attacking, a different opinion (but I do react accordingly), they attack personally BECAUSE they want to silence criticism.

My point: it's easy to say one is a Captain America fan, at the same time and attack any different opinion. Even worse: personally.

That's more of a Red Skull kinda behaviour, I'd say.

You're not the only person to have posted negative points on this movie. Look over some of the threads. But, what I don't tolerate is flat out disrespect to an entire section of the site that you insult just to forward your agenda.

Basically, be civil in your critiques. Attack other posters/groups of posters (by lableing people as "ass-slapping majority" etc), and you force my hand.

Where's my lack of respect, above?

And tell me: do you happen to notice lack of respect from others towards me? In this page, for instance? Or you do not?

I can make a list of direct offenses to me personally or to what I said here. In this page. Without your diligent appeal to them not to.

Don't bring yourself down to the level of personal attacks, please. I don't want this to degenerate into a flame war.
