El Cappitano Americano

This is probably the main 'Avenger' with whom I have the least knowledge, outside of the 1990 version.

In this movie, a guy takes drugs, and becomes a better person (hey, didn't I just see this?). On the way, he punches some guys, and people like that, then goes on to punch more people, one of whom is 'skin challenged', but since this is in the 1940s, there isn't a call for political correctness.

Overall, I can't say I was that fascinated by this movie. Lots of critics seemed to applaud it, but... meh... it just didn't really do anything. This might be because the story line was basically 'beat up Hydra', and, character-wise, wasn't more challenging than 'will he get the girl?'. [Overthinking also tackles this lack of imagination.]

Chris Evans is decent enough, and Hugo Weaving is stealing all the scenes. Keep an eye out for the Dream Lord, Toby Jones, and the other Jones, Tommy Lee, is playing himself having fun more than a character.

If you're watching the Marvel set of movies, you'll see this. Otherwise, I wouldn't bother.
