Steve Rogers, a rejected military soldier transforms into Captain America after taking a dose of a "Super-Soldier serum". But being Captain America comes at a price as he attempts to take down a war monger and a terrorist organization.
As Steve Rogers struggles to embrace his role in the modern world, he teams up with a fellow Avenger and S.H.I.E.L.D agent, Black Widow, to battle a new threat from history: an assassin known as the Winter Soldier.

When Tony Stark and Bruce Banner try to jump-start a dormant peacekeeping program called Ultron, things go horribly wrong and it's up to Earth's mightiest heroes to stop the villainous Ultron from enacting his terrible plan.

Armed with a super-suit with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, cat burglar Scott Lang must embrace his inner hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym, plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.
It is 1942, America has entered World War II, and sickly but determined Steve Rogers is frustrated at being rejected yet again for military service. Everything changes when Dr. Erskine recruits him for the secret Project Rebirth. Proving his extraordinary courage, wits and conscience, Rogers undergoes the experiment and his weak body is suddenly enhanced into the maximum human potential. When Dr. Erskine is then immediately assassinated by an agent of Nazi Germany's secret HYDRA research department (headed by Johann Schmidt, a.k.a. the Red Skull), Rogers is left as a unique man who is initially misused as a propaganda mascot; however, when his comrades need him, Rogers goes on a successful adventure that truly makes him Captain America, and his war against Schmidt begins.Written by

The origin story about Captain America is revealed as been a ultimate superhero in the MCU comics. The film was directed by Joe Johnston who directed The Rocketeer (1991) and Jurassic Park III (2001). This is a decent action superhero film and I love it so much. Chris Evans is Steve Rogers - Captain America his best acting performance I have eve seen on screen. Captain America: The First Avenger is my personal favorite at top 3 MCU movies.
Set in 1942 during WWII Steve Rogers (Chris Evens) the smallest kid from Brooklyn a 20-something, 90 lb, 5-foot tall asthmatic volunteers for military service in the United States Army. The army doctor rejects Steve's application as the military 4-F, as this is his fourth failed attempt to enlist. Dr. Abraham Erskine (Stanley Tucci) recruits Steve in a secret project while Steve Rogers volunteers and goes in to secret experiment in which turns him in to super- soldier. With his best friend Bucky Barnes he goes on a missions to stop Red Skull (Johann Schmidt) commander of the terrorist organization Hydra, played by awesome Hugo Weaving from The Matrix as Agent smith and V for Vendetta and of course as voice of Megaton in Transformers movies dominating the world. The men can play a good evil villains his talented gifted actor. Red Skull wants to dominate the world harnessing the power of the magical object known as the Tesseract.
The movie is a good start and a good decent origin story about Captain America how he become a superhero. Yes this is my favorite MCU superhero character in the MARVEL Universe ever. I love Captain America so much and his shield that was build from Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper) father of Tony Stark. Hayley Atwell is Peggy Carter An officer with the Strategic Scientific who becomes Steve Rogers love interest. Hayley Atwell as Peggy Carter Is decent in the movie I enjoy her she did a good performance and she was likeable. Toby Jones is Dr. Arnim Zola accomplice of Red Skull a scientist turning to evil who works with Johann Schmidt on "Tesseract" as an energy-source for world domination. Excellent performance from Tobey Jones a good second villain he retuned briefly In a cameo scene in sequel smash box office hit Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
The movie has the second hour best action ever as Captain America is dressed in a new uniform, rides a Harley with his shield and his mask, charges the base. He dodges HYDRA soldiers on motorcycles in which they are chasing him. He puts booby traps with a rope, he pushes the button for fire and blows up an enemy tank. He beats up Hydra's army soldiers with his fists and shield. He goes on a rescue mission by him self. Saves Bucky Barnes his best friend and 400 American soldiers who were prisoners of war. Captain stops the air plane before whole New York would be destroy fights off Red Skull in a battle of good VS evil that's why I think the film is a decent superhero flick my personal favorite MCU film in the MARVEL universe.
This movie was shot so much better than Thor Ragnarok though. I prefer no shaky-cam + rapid-edits.
Splitting the difference, we get an 9/10 -- an outstanding score.
My biggest problem with the film is the first hour in which almost nothing happens. There is no action and I didn't like that Steve Rogers - Captain America become a music player playing his self on a music theaters with features dancing girls. I didn't like that much. The rest of the film it is solid I liked and love it very much. I love the capture of Dr. Arnim Zola on a train. Steve Rogers - Captain America is a decent superhero, it is a decent and solid film with an origin story I love it.
