CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER was a brilliant film overloaded with action packed excitement for fans of the Marvel comic book stories. The 3D aspect of this film really complimented the visual effects of the movie. The acting performances were outstanding, particularly Chris Evans, Hugo Weaving and Hayley Atwell. 

This is the first superhero movie I ever reviewed and it is a privilege to be reviewing one that was so finely crafted. If anyone who is a fan of Marvel and superhero movies, I highly recommend you see this movie and comment on my review site.

Star rating: (4/5) Good Movie
