Captain America: The First Avenger 2.0 stars

Captain America: The First Avenger movie poster

Marvel continues its lightweight but well-muscled march toward the superhero ensemble piece The Avengers, this time calling on director Joe Johnston and his gift for rendering unclouded heroism and golly-gee romance. You know, olde-timey stuff, appropriate for a decent guy (Chris Evans) who gets turned into a WWII super soldier via (what else) a super-soldier serum. Tommy Lee Jones is perfect as a crusty captain with a soft interior, but Hugo Weaving's rogue Nazi has trouble finding his inner baddie. 2011.
