Captain America was an overblown, explosion-filled, morally heavy-handed summer action flick. The main theme of the main character was "I don't like bullies." His main motivation was to fight in World War II because he needed to live up to his parents sacrifices. The most-repeated flaw in the movie was that ricochets of all kinds almost never did any damage. (And really, who leaves a loaded gun lying on a table in a research lab like that?)
This was a Marvel comic made live, bang! zoom! pow! The humor lines were delivered well, and I adore Tommy Lee Jones in almost any role. Hugo Weaving is awesome too, even when he is a caricature of a character. The motorcycle ride
through Endor in the forest and then the Men In Black driving scene both hit my funny bone even when the creators probably didn't mean to make them funny.
This was a morally black and white movie. Yay for the good guys.
I really enjoyed it.
