Captain America: The First Avenger (2011)

Sometime ago I wrote about my expectations towards Captain America: The First Avenger (2011)... and if you read it, than you know I've raised some concerns related to it's director...

But what d' ya know? Joe Johnston didn't suck after all!

Even though it's not an amazing comic book movie, it's still good enough to provide the audience with great entertainment, worthy of a summer blockbuster" I would change a few things here and there, but all and all, enjoyed myself watching what is to become the Avengers leader!

Chris Evans does a wonderful job as the Cap, while Hugo Weaving didn't provide a role of greater magnitude only because the script didn't allow him to. The Red Skull should have a bit more time and attention to detail, taking into consideration he has a very interesting backstory.

Meanwhile, I was surprised with Bucky's (Captain America's sidekick) outcome, but to avoid any spoilers, I will leave it at that!

Like any other flick related to comics, this one has an awesome supporting cast with actors in the likes of Tommy Lee Jones, Stanley Tucci, Hayley Atwell and Toby Jones.
The formula has been similar to most Marvel films...

Adding to the cast, you also have good action sequences, punchlines and use of some cliches (not in an excessive way), excellent retro look, nice looking costume and a more than fairly adaptation from the original source to the screen, it stands as yet another win for the sequence of heroes (Hulk, Thor, Hawkeye and Iron Man) coming up to assemble the Marvel's Squad.
