The original superhero, Captain America's movie is a great pulpy piece of comic fiction. There is some piece de resistances throughout the film from Tommy Lee Jones and Chris Evans and Joe Jackson gets the best from the rest of the cast without permitting simply the special impacts to overwhelm.The movies ability to combine an excellent story, with some fantastic directing makes it far much better than many the other movies in this category. There is also much in the way of great humor and some of the 40s styles is exceptional. Johnson even manages to harness some of the sensation of old 1940s movies in the superhero story-- no mean feat, and yet it never loses its sense of enjoyable and excitement throughout.

This movie will be one of the brand-new DVD releases to keep an eye out for in 2011 at HMV.
