I'm not feeding this troll. He speaks of intelligence, yet has horrible grammer and spelling. A troll by the very definition. He's arguing about a movie sucking after the critics have aproved it. It's like trying to write over a name on the Stanley Cup with a crayon.

That being said, I have about a day until I get to watch this....can't wait! Looks like everyone is applauding Evans's performance as Cap, which was my main concern. He's going to be leading the Avengers into battle next year, and they need an actor who can portray a strong Cap. It's good to know they found one.

CA never touched on none of this. it was, here are the baddies and we have to stop them.
You're not a ten year old anymore, eh? No, that was a whole two years ago for ya, wasn't it? You were so much older then, you're younger than that now.

News flash for ya: not every movie subscribes to your "shades of grey" outlook on life. That kind of attitude is great for movies that aspire to high art and meaningful social commentary. Nolan can afford to do this with Batman because it's a crime drama, which by nature deals with the evil in men's souls.

Captain America is NOT a crime drama. It's a war movie. And more to the point, it's a GOLDEN AGE war movie. The movie is a deliberate (and necessary) homage to the 40s-50s All-American War Hero John Wayne flicks. As such, there should be NO shades of grey here at all --- just plain old two-fisted good guys vs. bad guys. No need for all the psychobabble and social commentary.

But hey, if it makes you feel any better, Captain America in the modern age DOES deal with all those wonderful shades of grey you love so much. You need wait only one more year for The Avengers to start seeing a Cap who has to rethink his old-fashioned ways and realize that things in the 21st century aren't nearly as cut-and-dried as they were in WWII.

I personally am not a fan of comic book movies that are not above 80% ive realised. I tried to like Thor, but yeesh it was too campy for me and i pray Cap Am isnt that way too. based on the clips im not impressed at all, but lets see.


Like why would those guys with the flame throwers just surround him with fire instead of straight up roast him head on. he couldnt have survived that so i dont get it in movies sometimes how they give up logic for a cool angle or what not. anyway...we'll see. ill be honest about my feelings on it after a viewing
Obviously you feel pretty stupid right now, for all the crying and moaning you were doing about this scene

They didn't roast Cap because Skull personally wanted to kill him.


People should really not make assumptions or cry and moan about scenes in movies until actually seeing the damn movie.

Overall, guys. I really don't understand many of the complanints from the critics. I absoloute loved the film, and even though it's not the best, it really was damn fantastic, if you ask me.

This film felt like a comic book, with changes obviously, but overall, it had a comic booky feeling and that's just what I wanted.

If I get a movie that's like the love child of The Rocketeer and Raiders of the Lost Ark I'm pretty sure I'll love it like it's my first born. Doesn't even have to be perfect.

And from what I've heard from some of the top critics, it has the pulpy cornball feel of the 40's that I've been dying to see again on screen.

C Lee said not to respond to Godman, so why are some of you still doing it? you're just making things worse, ignore him.

I've removed the posts, lets get this back on track.

Nothing needs to be said to a troll who's only purpose is to get people to respond to him. He's on probation and wont be back for a week, so lets move on.

Two mods clearly pointed out not to respond to the troll and yet you just ignored us completely, me deleting it was a light response to blatant disrespect.

Could it be that I didn't see those posts? Because I didn't. I was still back on the other page prior to seeing those posts. You want to talk about disrepect? Jeez man, there was absolutely nothing wrong with what was in my post, and you just deleted it. The points that Godman made that I was replying too were not even trolling points, they were actually good points, that had a good reply, granted, not all of his posts have been that way. I'll ask again, please put it back. The points I was making about the Captain America movie have come up here quite often, and they are points that many people seem to be forgetting. I can understand moderating trolling posts off the thread, but I can't see deleting posts that had good points.

Just saw this seems to have settled in the upper 70's among the top critics. That's very good news. I was also surprised to see the New York critics give it praise. This movie's climb in the tomatometer, as well as what's been specifically praised by the majority, has got me feeling confident in my excitement. Can't wait to see it tonight. Hopefully I'll be able to get a review in the other thread at some point this weekend.

Also, not only is this, I think, Chris Evans highest RT movie, but isn't this also Joe Johnston's best reviewed movie? I've seen from a couple of RT top critics (maybe AO Scott) that JJ directed this like he had something to prove.

As I've liked more of JJ's movies than not, this makes me happy.

This movie was ok, nothing spectacular but it sure as heck leaves alot to be desired. For some reason I just think Johnston didnt bring his A game to this project. The action just felt lifeless and really had no emotion in it at all except for maybe the final battle between red skull and cap. The cgi was so over the top it just took me out of the movie and made me think "well tommy lee jones the girl and chris are safe in there car surrounded by green screen chasing after the plane. I really expected more and it is no where near as bad or disappointing as say wolverine or to some extent ironman 2 but it just comes off as if they played it too safe. I heard they wanted a sequel to this after avengers but I dont see how you do one in world war 2 since they basically covered it all in one movie and where the heck were the nazis?

For Evans as the sole lead of a film, yes. For Johnston no, that would be October Sky which has a 90% rating.
