      Critics Consensus

      With plenty of pulpy action, a pleasantly retro vibe, and a handful of fine performances, Captain America is solidly old-fashioned blockbuster entertainment.

      Candice Frederick Reel Talk Online Captain America is a truly humble story that fortifies the character both physically and morally. Rated: A- Sep 8, 2017 Full Review David Stratton At the Movies (Australia) It's very, very well done. Rated: 3.5/5 Jul 14, 2015 Full Review Matthew Lickona San Diego Reader The story squanders its own fine setup. Rated: 2/5 Jul 14, 2015 Full Review Cory Woodroof For the Win (USA Today) Chris Evans earned his star power in this role, and he was never better than here. Feb 27, 2024 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review To see Captain America in a WWII backdrop battling Red Skull on the big screen is every fanboy’s dream, and Johnston delivers the goods. Rated: 3/4 Mar 10, 2023 Full Review Sean Axmaker Stream on Demand ... a red, white and blue superhero journey wrapped up in the nostalgia of the World War II era, where American pluck and moral certainty made the battle.

      Audience Member An absolutely amazing movie. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 05/19/24 Full Review Cristina A Absolutely amazing... Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/19/24 Full Review Audience Member "And I'm glad to be an American". Amazing origin story for Captain America with strong writing, great plot and memorable characters, most notably Redskull. The vintage style really complements everything this movie is going for. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 05/18/24 Full Review Christian W Pretty good film, the pacing can get a little wonky here and there but overall, I enjoy watching Chris Evans play his role and the relationship he has with Peggy Carter. The Red Skull again is another one of those villains with a less than stellar motive. He wants power for the sake of wanting power, he wants to be that perfect being that Captain America is and push himself to be a god. It is an okay motive but just not super interesting to me. The action of this film hadn't really been figured out really, Captain America doesn't truly feel like he is more powerful than the average human. Then the ending, though Captain America could fly the jet to the land and get it land somewhere more practical so then he could eject from the plane, you feel the tension and the sadness that Peggy Carter feels at the very end to lose the one she loves. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 05/08/24 Full Review Joe B Classic movie, with strong writing, decent acting, and great character development. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 05/04/24 Full Review Bruk T Built upon a picturesque 1940s environment, Captain America: The First Avenger really delivers the thrill and proper treatment to America's greatest hero, fusing a drizzle of subtle romance and the presence of the scheming Hydra, Rogers appears as sleek as ever before.
