Review from the comment
I consider myself a pretty big comic book fan but Captain America is definitely not a favorite of mine. That said, the movie adaptation is fun enough. I do have a problem with the casting of Chris Evans as the lead as he already plays The Human Torch in the Fantastic Four films. Is there really not anyone else in Hollywood who could have adequately carried the role? But I digress. Like I said, Captain America is a fun if not amazing romp through the First Avenger’s origins during World War II. I do feel the middle of the film was rushed and at times it felt like I was watching a trailer for a movie instead of an actual movie. Not one of the best Marvel screen translations, but far from the worst either.
