“ Had to put this as my number one. What is Colin Farrell doing in this? He's actually a good actor!

The trailer makes this film a big disfavour. It makes it look like the silliest thing ever made. I hope Farrell gets the money he obviously needs from this and gets back to making good films like In Bruges or Cassandra's Dream. ” - nanasuyl

“ So Captain America is this thin guy. Then he gets some tits and becomes a superhero? Could this film be any cheesier? Oh, let me guess, he beats the villain in the end? The trailer makes the film look so bad...

And why on earth would you go to a war wearing a ridiculous bright blue costume and an even more ridiculous colourful shield? I bet the nazis couldn't stop laughing!

I'm surprised to see Hayley Atwell and Dominic Cooper in this. They usually make good, different and interesting films. Well, they do need to eat and pay rent. ” - nanasuyl
