Noble character makes action-packed movie a treat
This movie was one of the best movies I have seen all summer! In today's world, the superheroes in movies are usually arrogant, surly, womanizers, or a combination of the three (cough cough Iron Man) and are DEFINETELY not good characters to look up to. Captain America is different. The movie starts out with Steve/Captain America as a scrawny little man with numerous other issues that prevent him from getting into the military. He is then chosen as a special contestant to create military "super-soldiers" to fight the enemies in WWII. So, Steve goes from this scrawny little man into a big macho man, gets christened "Captain America", and instantly becomes a sensation. Now here's the impressive part: despite his newfound fame and strength, Steve remain a very noble, humble, honorable, courageous man who sticks to his values and is even willing to sacrifice himself to save thousands of people. Note: being a superhero movie, there is plenty of violence and scary villains as well as some language, but the language is fairly mild. Along with the honorable character and well-crafted plot is a light brush of humor, which made the movie all the more enjoyable. Good news, parents, women are also NOT treated as sex icons!
