  • Fab film but one star because itโ€™s missing...

    Marvel One Shot: A Funny Thing Happened on the way to Thor's Hammer and 4K (like all of the Disney/MCU films on iTunes). Would give it 5 stars otherwise.

  • A Retro Rocket of a film

    By Bearded Bobby
    The most underrated film of the entire Marvel canon. It has a wonderful visual style that sets it apart from all the rest and I believe this is why it constantly overshadowed by the other films. Captain America represents all thatโ€™s best in a world war with an enemy (Nazis) thatโ€™s viewed as universally bad. โ€˜This gives the film a moral certainly, which some say makes it corny but I love the retro futuristic hardware as he battles what seems the entire range of Nazi victory weapons & technology.
  • Love this film.

    Seen it so many times and I love it. Beautifully shot and great plot. Chris Evans as Steve Rogors, aka, Captain America is a great choice. Hayley Atwell is a badass as Peggy Cater.
  • Dull

    By The Radletteer
    Not very good. Red faced villain looked stupid. Acting very formulaic. Weak story. Would not recommend it to anyone.
  • great film!

    love it! Great film Chris Evans plays a good Captain America true to the comics. However, Red Skull was not intimidating enough Overall Great Film!
  • Sets up for The Avengers

    By Aiden Horrocks
    Taking the Marvel Universe back to its roots, this first Captain America film embraces it's World War II settings to the fullest, and introduces the world to Red Skull. It also sets up many plot lines that would be explored in The Avengers and while Captain America became a welcome addition to the MCU, the film doesn't fully explore his potential. If nothing else, at least the film did introduce us to Hayley Atwell as Captain America's love interest and future small screen hero, Agent Peggy Carter.
  • Seen this so many times....

    Anthony, in future, contact iTunes support. As for this film.... This is a great movie, it's old style and simple brilliant. Not like the other marvel films at all... In terms of style I mean. Only down side is Red Skull doesn't have much of a part, too busy with his make-up I guess.
  • Retro Blast!

    Captain America: The First Avenger is a pretty decent film by its own merits. Showing the good old retro style and production design, since this film is directed by Joe Johnson who is capable of portraying the old times perfectly. Chris Evans did a great job as Captain America. Some of the action scenes are disappointingly unexciting but at least the CGI effects are eye candy. The movie ends with true patriotic heroism and full of heart. Definitely not new but it's still enjoyable. The trope of Captain America: The First Avenger has been reused by so many superhero movies. A good guy who is a weakling became powerful then eventually saves the day. It's definitely not innovating even for the people who've never read the comics but it's a relic. Well made production design & the old fashion score. Most battle scenes are montages. The action scenes are large. It can be watchable but some of them are pretty bland and poorly directed. The joys and the thrills mostly goes to the performances. Nothing goes wrong with Chris Evans. He did a decent job as Steve Rogers/Captain America. Hugo Weaving is fun to watch by his campiness and menace for the Red Skull. Tommy Lee Jones is the comic relief here. The special effects are everywhere. Skinny Chris Evans and the background of the 1940s. Well, they are good enough for this film. Plenty of things worked in the end. Captain America: The First Avenger is a relic in its old fashion style but a little messy when it comes to the editing of the action scenes, but it's still enjoyable. Patriotic heroism, full of heart, Chris Evans, and decent production design. Marvel Studios and Joe Johnston really beats the awful 1990s version. The action could have been better but their flaws can be ignored. It's fun enough as a superhero movie!
