|1.||Captain America:The First Avenger|
Captain America:The First Avenger is a 2011 American superhero film based on the Marvel Comics character Captain America.The film was directed by Joe Johnston and stars Chris Evans,Tommy Lee Jones,Hugo Weaving and Hayley Atwell.The film tells the story of Steve Rogers, a sickly man from Brooklyn who is transformed into super-soldier Captain America to aid in the war effort.Captain America's mission is to stop the Red Skull(Adolf Hitler's head of weaponry)who,as the leader of the organization HYDRA,intends to use a device called a "tesseract" as an energy-source for world domination.
Whilst this film is mainly a World War II film, it begins and ends in the "present day".The opening scene shows scientists(present day) in the Arctic uncovering a circular object with a red,white and blue motif(Captain America's shield).
I thought it was strange that this scene was the OPENING act of the film;it would've been better if it was near the END of the film.
The film and cast itself is good, and Chris Evans is convincing as Captain America.The only problem with this film was that there was not enough of Captain America in one-on-one combat action.Steve Rogers is a master martial artist and one of earth's greatest hand-to-hand fighters,yet there was not enough evidence of that in the film to confirm that reputation.That being said, this film is still worth watching and has enough about it not to disappoint.
