Captain America...

Yes, I'm a bit slow, but I only just managed to watch Captain America and I liked it! Had to suspend my disbelief at the over the top action and keep reminding myself that it was basically a live action comic book - it certainly wasn't boring. Didn't like the end though, it seemed too chopped off and unfinished.
Chris Evans was really good. My only complaint is that he wasn't shirtless often enough lol! However, while I was watching I couldn't help but think that Jensen would have been absolutely awesome in the role. If he had been chosen, I likely would have gone to the theater rather than waiting for the dvd. Oh well, still liked it. Am really looking forward to The Avengers now. :D

I loved Captain America. Jensen would have been awesome in this role, but Chris did a great job. And the special effects were really effective in the transformation.

I agree on the ending, a little rushed and short changed, but we know why - because Cap America is the prequel to the Avengers. but still, Cap's story is very sad. Waking up to find everyone he loves/knows is dead or very very old.

Poor guy.

The special effects where they made Chris seem like a little guy were amazing. I'd seen a bit on tv on how it was done and I thought it was very impressive.

And yeah, poor guy. Everything and everybody that he had known was gone. (Kind of reminds me of Forever Young, the old Mel Gibson movie.) That ending definitely screamed 'sequel', and I'll be happy to check it out when it's released. :)
