Do you know what I liked about this movie? Everything. Seriously. There’s nothing to dislike at all.

The storyline is amazing. The actors destroyed their various parts in the best possible way. Chris Evans fit the part of the good ol’ boy Captain America perfectly. I’ve seen him in other movies. Other movies that I have highly enjoyed, but you know what? I absolutely understand why a lot of people only remember him from this movie. I would never guess that the man who played Captain America played that guy from “What’s Your Number?” To me, that’s the mark of an actor with heavy talent. No type-casting there.

I don’t know why Marvel is usually so spot on with their movies (relax, geeks, I said “usually”). I’ve watched my share of DC movies and, with the exception of The Watchmen, I usually have some severe issues with some part of them. Marvel, however, proceeds to blow me away each and every time.

As per usual, if you watch this movie, stick around to see the cut scene that comes after the movie. Those cut scenes are usually good and always relevant, since Marvel weaves together their movies into one great universe that allows us to follow them throughout several years of storyline. And, of course, look for a cameo from the great Stan Lee himself.

Overall Opinion – 5/5
