Movie Review: Captain America: The First Avenger

                                      Captain America: The First Avenger Review
Captain America: The First Avenger takes place in 1942 and is a about a young man named Steve Rogers(Chris Evens) who wants to do his part and the join the army to help defeat the Nazis but he has been unable to join the army because he is extremely thin and has health issues. Steve is eventually allowed to join the army after Dr. Abraham Erskine(Stanley Tucci) a germen scientist who had a serum developed that could make super soldiers but was looking for just the right kind of person to use it on, after hearing Steve's refusal to give up on trying to join the army because he felt it was the right thing to do he decided that Steve was that person. While Dr. Erskine is fully convinced that Steve is the right candidate for the job Colonel Chester Phillips(Tommy Lee Jones) takes some convincing after seeing him at the training camp.

Steve ends up getting the serum and becomes a super solider but Dr.Erskine is killed right after he went through the successful trial by a germen Hydra agent. Steve ends up becoming Captain America after this and instead of being a solider like he thought he would be he ends up becoming a symbol for the American people to help boost morale that is until he is at one of the camps in Europe and learns that his best friend Bucky Barnes(Sebastian Stan) division has been captured and the Colonel doesn't have a rescue plan for them. Steve with the help of Peggy Carter(Hayley Atwell) and Howard Stark(Dominic Cooper) ends up dropping into German territory and invading Hydra's base and freeing all the men of the 107th but he made sure that he found Bucky before he left. After this point Steve starts working as a solider for the army rather than a symbol.

One of the things I love in this movie was the relationship between Steve and Peggy an officer with the Strategic Scientific Reserve who Steve meets early on in the film and through out they work together and develop a bond. In the end their relationship breaks my heart but before that I find the two of them to be very sweet. Another relationship in this movie that I adored was the friendship between Steve and Bucky that was clearly something that had a lot of history to it and also ended up breaking my heart. Overall I loved this movie and most of the characters in it. Please tell me your thoughts on the movie.
