Captain America

Star-spangled s**t.


Action

Rod Lott
Not long after “Batman” changed Hollywood in the summer of 1989, every studio wanted to have the next comics-based blockbuster. I remember visiting Penn Square Mall’s multiplex (as I did often back then) and seeing a poster for “Captain America.” The one-sheet was comprised of little more than a close-up of Cap’s iconic shield and a promise to arrive next summer.

Captain America / Captain America II: Death Too Soon

‘America,’ eff yeah!


Action

When “Captain America: The First Avenger” burst onto blockbustin’ movie screens this summer, someone over at MGM’s video division took notice and finally put the abortion that was 1993’s “Captain America”.

The Avengers

So many superheroes, so little satisfaction.


Action

Rod Lott
I swear I’m not playing the contrarian card for the sake of doing so, but I disliked The Avengers — not with a passion, but mere disengagement. With the exception of Thor, I loved all the films leading up to this ultimate one, from 2008’s Iron Man to last summer’s Captain America: The First Avenger. I even entered this one carrying next-to-no expectations.

Captain America: The First Avenger

Enlist in 'Captain America,' the final and finest superhero adventure of a summer season flooded with them.


Action

Rod Lott
"Captain America: The First Avenger" is Marvel's third — third! — superhero movie just this summer, following "Thor" and "X-Men: First Class," so it would be reasonable to expect audiences to be burned out on men in tights.
