I liked the ending a lot. Actually, I liked the ending between Peggy and Steve a lot. It was a nice reminder about how some soldiers go off to war, and never get a chance to say goodbye to their loved ones.

Thought it was brilliant, perfectly dramatic, and saddening. I can see the other viewpoint though. Everything was a little disjointed, some are going to like it some aren't.

I just thought it was weird and kinda cheap, since it was probably done that way just because Avengers is coming up. If there was no Avengers movie coming, then maybe I would think differently about it.

I completely thought the opposite. I think using the rousing march theme immediately after was PERFECT for a few reasons:

Firstly, yes the moment before was sad, but it's also a reminder of the goodness and heroism of the character.

Secondly, why should composer Alan Silvestri (whose score was FANTASTIC) who greatly added to the sadness of that scene not be allowed to have "his" moment in the spotlight?

Lastly, did you ever see The Empire Strikes Back? Last time I checked that went from being on a downer to John Williams' upbeat and rousing end credits music. That's just one example of many occasions with this occurring in past films as well.

I thought it was really, really abrupt, and I wasn't touched by it much at all. I think a much sweeter ending would have been him dancing at the pub 'for old time's sake' with a 90 year old married with great grandkids Peggy Dugan.

That would have been a great line to throw in.

I think they should have lingered on Chris a few seconds more and let him act out the moment. Show how he was feeling a little more.

The people in my theater really liked it. They went "Awwww...." followed by applause.

My favorite MARVEL movie ending to date.

The one thing I didnt like about the way things are set up so far is the timeline. In the end they announced he was asleep for 70 years... if Cap happened in the mid fourties, and stark was say, in his early 20's... how old was he when Tony was born? Tony had to be born no earlier than the early 70's, so his dad would have been what? in his 50's when he was born?... too many of these events are too dated to use the way marvel is right now.... there needed to be at least one generation between the ww2 group and the modern group. that should have been tony's granddad, ort even great grandad not dad in this movie.... that or they should have moved the current date back to the 90's when all the modern stuff is happening....

I don't know, I LOVE Tony revealing his identity & it cutting into Black Sabbath's Iron Man.

What's so implausible about a guy like Stark having a kid in his 50's?

I kind of had an inkling that the ending would be abrupt but I thought it would end with rescuers having discovered Captain America on ice followed by a fade to black.

But I think the pre-Avenger teaser of CA punching the bag in the gym would've been the perfect ending since it allows Nick Fury to explain the Avengers plan.

I had no problem with the ending itself, but as some have said, the music that followed was really off-putting. I'm all for rousing, upbeat film music but that stupid song was annoying as hell and made it painful to sit through the credits.

I agree about the Star Spangled Man song (particularly in the end credits), not a fan, but the March by Silvestri was first class, and I loved it starting up as the credits began. I had no problem with it, as I've already stated.

The ending was just about perfect...though I cant help but wonder if it would have been too much or just right if he went to visit Peggy as an old woman

Not Menken's finest work, I like it but I can understand people finding it annoying. Once was probably enough.

That may still happen in Avengers. This film wasn't about giving closure to Cap's full journey...it was showing his journey in the 40s. This film just introduced that idea, which Avengers will expand upon. So, I feel the ending was perfect.

I think that would have been more meaningful in this movie...it has no bearing on the avengers.
