4.0 out of 5 stars Pure Old-School Blockbuster Entertainment!!, November 26, 2012
This review is from: Captain America: The First Avenger (DVD)
I had the interesting experience of watching Captain America: The First Avenger, and then watching Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight.
How different those films are!

The Dark Knight is NOT a popcorn film. It's a thriller, and an action movie. It's a dark, unforgettable, violent, gripping, intense, suspenseful, sometimes disturbing, but always brilliant film.

On the other hand, Captain America is pure FUN. It's escapism, blockbuster entertainment. A film filled with humor, improbable but exciting set pieces, dastardly villains (Nazis!), memorable characters, one-liners, heart (lots of it), and wonderful acting!
Shall I run through the cast for you? Here goes (*deep breath*): Chris Evans, Hugo Weaving, Hayley Atwell, Tommy Lee Jones, Toby Jones, Stanley Tucci, Dominic Cooper, Richard Armitage, and Samuel L. Jackson!

And Captain America has one more thing to reccomend itself to you...a memorable Stan Lee cameo!

In conclusion, Captain America: The First Avenger is a wonderfully entertaining, action-packed, well-acted, stylish, incredibly humorous, retro throwback to blockbusters of old such as Raiders of the Lost Ark.

Strongest Recommendation!!!
