Movie Review Captain America: The First Avenger

A few things you should note before moving forward. Yes, an "Avengers" trailer has found its way online. But it's not the full trailer that was shown after the credits of "Captain America: The First Avenger" — this is just a tease of the teaser.

Furthermore, in order to see this "Avengers" trailer, you have to sit through the final scene of "Captain America." So if you haven't seen "Cap" yet, you'll need to cross some spoiler-filled waters to get to Earth's Mightiest Heroes. Unless you just want to jump to the 34 second mark; that's an option, too!

The "Avengers" teaser doesn't reveal too much — indeed, all the shots seem to be lifted from one scene that gathers the ragtag team of superheroes in one room, perhaps for the first time. It's a rapid-fire succession of quick cuts that show all seven members of the squad in their modern-day, Joss Whedon-directed duds, combined with a final few seconds that cut straight to business.

"Gentlemen," a collected Nick Fury addresses the gathered heroes, with a very pensive looking Thor the most prominent of the bunch, "you're up."

Tony Stark, sans Iron Man armor but fully decked out in dark jacket, shirt and tie, swings by the aforementioned God of Thunder and taps him twice on the shoulder. "You've got a mean swing.

Chris Evans is Steve Rogers/Captain America, a nazi-beating badass in a superhero costume. Rejected by the military numerous times, a doctor (played by Stanley Tucci) takes Steve Rogers in and conducts an experiment to make him stronger, faster and better. Obviously this works and he begins his crusade against the organization known as Hydra. His nemesis in this movie is The Red Skull, which is played by Hugo Weaving. These actor's names alone should get you curious enough to catch a show of Captain America. But, if you are still having doubts, let me reassure you that this movie is not only action-packed, it also has a good amount of witty dialogue and interesting plot to keep you going throughout the entire movie.
With a running time of two hours and five minutes, this movie doesn't feel that long because it keeps your attention with all the action and special effects. Although everything looks old to us (it's set in WWII time, why wouldn't it be) it still is quite visually appealing. I feel like most people would actually like this movie, regardless if you know or even like superheroes. Also, if you didn't already know that you should stay at the end of a Marvel movie, then you apparently have been living under a rock. Hint: It's an Avengers teaser trailer, and it's pretty cool. Although, if you don't want to stay till the end of the credits, I'm sure it's on Youtube somewhere.

Overall, this movie is a really good summer popcorn flick that will not disappoint fans of the series and/or newcomers.
