Trust the Captain

Red, white, and blue, WWII, a cosmic cube, and Nazis. Marvel's final film leading up to "The Avengers" packs a punch in "Captain America: The First Avenger." Not only would the superhero franchise dip into our WWII past, but they would also show us a little of the future as they bring Captain into the modern world to lead the Avengers. Chris Evans plays the super soldier with a supporting cast that includes Hugo Weaving, Tommy Lee Jones, Stanley Tucci and Hayley Atwell. This is Marvel's strongest film since the first "Iron Man" back in 2008. From top to bottom, Joe Johnston does an excellent job of turning this eager boy into an American icon. As always, there are plenty of hidden gems in the movie (including that cube I will see more of that soon). "Captain America: The First Avenger" is what Marvel movie making is all about. I wore my Captain America shirt to "The Avengers" premiere for a reason the other night...when all else can trust the Captain!
