Very interesting to learn about the origins of Captain America. I liked both the characters and the plot. Although this is not my favourite Marvel film, I still enjoyed it.

I wasn’t that crazy about this movie when I first saw it. But now, several years & many movies later, I thoroughly enjoyed watching it again to see where it all began. I absolutely did not remember that this movie begins with the evil Hydra guy stealing the Tesseract from where it was hidden in (of course) Norway!

Great origin story, great cast, great movie in general. Hugo weaving does very well as red skull and is definitely one of the better Marvel villains. Gives a good backstory to the avengers and other Captain America movies.

Great movie adaptation of a great comic book hero. Man, could we use him for real these days.

Seriously underrated with some authentic art and thematics. I really couldn't ask for a better Captain America origin story. I would say movie, but....

You are deluded, Captain. You pretend to be a simple soldier, but in reality you are just afraid to admit that we have left humanity behind. Unlike you, I embrace it proudly. Without fear!

Violence: A person is shredded by a propeller (not as bad as it sounds) is still a PG-13 Marvel movie and has the same type of violence as the other MCU movies.

Frightening or Intense Scenes: A villain is destroyed by the Tesseract. Not bloody. Two sad scenes.

SAPPHIREBEAR15 Jun 10, 2012

In March 1942, Nazi officer Johann Schmidt and his men invade Tønsberg, Norway, to steal a mysterious Tesseract[a] possessing untold powers. Meanwhile, in New York City, Steve Rogers is rejected for World War II military duty because of various health and physical issues. While attending an exhibition of future technologies with his friend Bucky Barnes, Rogers again attempts to enlist. Overhearing Rogers' conversation with Barnes about wanting to help in the war, Dr. Abraham Erskine allows Rogers to enlist. He is recruited in the Scientific Strategic Reserve as part of a "super-soldier" experiment under Erskine, Col. Chester Phillips, and British agent Peggy Carter. Phillips is unconvinced by Erskine's claims that Rogers is the right person for the procedure, but relents after seeing Rogers commit an act of self-sacrificing bravery. The night before the treatment, Erskine reveals to Rogers that Schmidt underwent an imperfect version of the procedure and suffered side-effects.
