CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER

CAPTAIN AMERICA – ALL AMERICAN

PAYING FULL PRICE IS THE AMERICAN WAY

With so many Marvel characters being brought to the big screen over the last few years, director Joe Johnston had his hands full bringing this comic book classic to life. We couldn’t wait for its release just to see if it could live up to the hype.

Based during World War II, Steve Rogers played by Chris Evans (Fantastic Four, The Avengers) is a small kid from Brooklyn who badly wants to become an American Soldier. Unfortunately his size and medical history prevented him from successfully enlisting until he met a doctor who wanted to use him for an experimental super soldier program. With the success of the program, Steve was transformed to be bigger, stronger and faster than any enlisted soldier who eventually became a hero to soldiers and civilians alike.

We were pleasantly surprised to find that this movie not only lived up to the hype, but it was motivating and inspirational. In addition, the film in an off-handed kind of way was a great tribute to our troops and was packed with plenty of action and cool 3D graphics.  And just like with the other Marvel Comics movies, don’t leave until after the credits.  There is a special bonus scene to let fans know what’s coming next.

What are you waiting for? Grab your family and check out this American Classic.

The Green Hornet in 3D

The Green Hornet – A Painless Sting

WORTH A FULL PRICE TICKET! POPCORN TOO!!!

Green Hornet offers a refreshing, comedic twist to the comic book hero movie genre. Having said that, the action in the movie was somewhat lacking; true comic book turned into movie fans may have somewhat of a problem with that. I mean what do you expect with Seth Rogan as the action hero. Where the movie falls short in terms of action, they make up for it with laughs.
