It has 13 reviews

Check my opening post, and you'll see it has way more positive vs negative reviews.

One thing that caught my eye from the reviews was that Red Skull was under developed, that is a real shame because I was hoping Hugo would kill and set RS as a premiere Villain in the MCU

"By default as must as by design, it's best superhero story you'll see this year. Let's hope it doesn't just set up the story of The Avengers, but sets a standard for its quality."

I like that quote from the Todd Gilchrist review, it goes to show how hit and miss this may be with Critics, but you know what! It's alll good!

Leave it to Faraci to write a favorable review of a film that I want to do well and still do everything in his power to maintain his aura IMO of being a moron.

a lot of positive reviews are from sites/critics that RT's doesn't post. You can think up any conspiracy theory you'd like but some of these critics don't show up on RT for ANY movie.

Depends on who you read. Devin raved about RS/Hugo. THR and Variety thought they didn't spend enough time on the cast... I'm watching a video review about Cap that Hugo Weaving was outstanding.

But not everyone can grasp that. But I do feel it will end up "Fresh"
I gotta admit I was a big fan of the Raimi "make the hero pay" a la spider-man 2.
But Steve Rogers can have his own private battles that are just as interesting to watch. I mean how do you keep carrying on with EVERYONE always expecting EVERYTHING out of you, and at the same time you dont become a giant prick? He's Captain America, sure, but he aint Superman either, his physical limits are pretty human.

I saw a review on youtube where the guy promotes the "No scene after the credits" thing and says people booed hardcore after it. It's from "Things we like"

He loves his camp though. He loved Fantastic Four, Land of the Lost and G.I. Joe.

Of the 13 reviews on this topic, I counted 10 positive and 3 negative....I'm sure the tomatometer will go up and I'm sure this film is good.
