REEL DEAL Movies and Television: Captain America The First Avenger

The First Avenger

At last the long awaited movie before superheroes assemble on 2012. Captain America: The First Avenger has made people excited and would have a peek on what will happen next. Interestingly enough, Captain America has a great story behind his power and the enemies that he faced.

Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) is persistent to be part of the US army to serve the nation during the  second world war. However with his small physique and health limitations caused him to be rejected several times. But he still persisted and caught the eyes of people that can help him in his problem.

The movie also incorporates the other Marvel hero films like Iron Man and Thor. As Iron man showed science, and Thor mythology and cosmic powers, Captain America is a great mixture of both of them with the story of Yggdrasil and the participation of Tony Starks' dad Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper) in the world war. Trained under Chester Philipps (Tommy Lee Jones) with his best friend Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) also takes part of the action as well as his love interest Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) kicks ass too. They all battle the terror group HYDRA led by the Red Skull/Johan Schmidt (Hugo Weaving)

And the most awaited Easter egg at the end of the movie did show what to expect on 2012 as the Avengers will Assemble. Better keep your eyes peeled as things happen too fast that a blink won't be enough. Showing in the Philippines starting July 27, 2011 from United International Pictures distributed by Solar Entertainment Corporation.
