Captain America has been one film that everyone has been looking forward to because if there is one superhero, who can rival the affection and the fanfare that courts Superman in the United States, that is Captain America.
Chris Evans is a superhero who must fight demons, interested in making spying a common thing, inside the military complex he has promised to protect. The complex is compact with a scattering of bad guys, and this is the ‘40s so there is already war everywhere and a massive amount of patriotism is brandished with a lot of liberation, across all quarters.
Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) instructs Steve Rogers, that’s Captain America for you, to save a naval ship attacked by pirates. This film somehow manages to twist the forties with the times of today, and blends in breathtaking action scenes – you might just have to hold onto your seat to find out if your favourite superhero is still a traditional good guy, looking out for his town, until the very last scene of the film.
Film rating: 8/10.
