Captain America: The First Avenger (2011)
Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) has always wanted to join the army but his small built and poor health has always deterred him. His lucky day arrives when he chances upon Dr. Abraham Erskine (Stanley Tucci), who recruits Rogers into the “super-soldier” experiment and he ultimately becomes Captain America. His help is needed when by Johann Schmidt (Hugo Weaving), leader of the Nazi’s experimental division HYDRA, plans to unleash their WMD on different parts of the world.
Hayley Atwell is stunning! Love the ’40s makeup and outfits. Plus, she shoots well! Chris Evans was just really hot with all his muscles and running and fighting. I really liked the scene where his character, Rogers, went towards the grenade when everyone else went away. It was also really cute that he misunderstood the term “fondue”. It was a really wholesome movie though there were some sad parts (Bucky!) and it has made me really psyched about The Avengers. I should really find time to watch Iron Man soon. Amanda Righetti from The Mentalist has a bit part this movie too!
3 and a half out of 5 stars
