Marvel Entertainment has everything to make it's films survive the standards of conceptual film-making and also knows that secret recipe to make those superhero films fun to everyone. Captain America: The First Avenger is yet another film which will not change your mindset and also have something unique both in the sense of big onscreen action and plenty of WOW moments.
So does the World War 2 setting adds to the uniqueness, definitely yes!! The story is just not set during WW2, it reconnects those times with the modern era. The theme of the film is simple and interesting enough to make you stick to your seat. It's storyline is simple yet classic and does exactly what was asked to do in establishing it's lead character as an iconic superhero.
The film features Steve Rogers(Chris Evans) a mere 98 pound skinny weakling with some strong and patriotic feelings to serve his country during the dark times against the Nazi Germany. Yet another thing that America needs is more strong and super soldiers cause Germany already have one, Johann Schmidt (Hugo Weaving). Despite of his weak and skinny body his spirit is not enough to overcome his body limitations, so he contacts a scientist Dr. Abraham Erskine (Stanley Tucci) who's been working on creating a genetic breed of super soldiers. With his serum he successfully transforms Steve into a genetically enhanced super hero and Steve decides to put that power to good use, for his country as the superhero Captain America.
Captain America: The first Avenger is the type of movie that has many positive assets being the characters, the plot, timing, action and it's amazing tone and feel. With a little comic book tinch in it's storytelling Director Joe Johnston did a commendable job in presenting those movie pieces in an authentic way. Overall, a great feature film with some really nice elements and amazing action sequences. Definitely a must watch.
