The army doesn’t take him seriously, but a U.S. Senator gives him the opportunity to help the troops by raising money for the cause. Wearing a colorful costume, Rogers becomes Captain America. During a tour abroad to entertain the troops, Rogers learns than there’s an American battalion that has been taken captive by Schmidt, and he decides—with the prodding of Agent Carter, his love interest--to put his newly gained skills to good use.
Dominic Cooper, Tommy Lee Jones and Derek Luke co-star.
Agent Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell, The Pillars of the Earth) is so poised that she even wears red lipstick to battle. Schmidt is assisted by soldiers with the look and the energy of Darth Vader. The plane in which Schmidt makes his escape looks like a B2 bomber (pretty advanced stuff for 1943!)
Rogers is hotter than hell, and his screen presence resembles that of another superhero (Christopher Reeve as Superman).This movie is a lot of fun, with subtle jokes and plenty of war action to please the audience. What I liked the most was the historical background given to the story, which makes it kind of plausible.
