Captain America: The First Avenger was really actually good. There was a bunch of action and awesomeness and hot guys (Chris Evans and Sebastian Stan). This movie really starts to tie the whole Avengers together, which is really cool because it is the final movie until The Avengers.
The movie starts out in the present day in the Artic. People have found a huge ship and don't know where it came from. Some of them go inside and when inside they uncover something in the ice and when you see it, it is the shield that belongs to Cpt. America. The movie then goes to 1945 in Norway. People are trying to protect something, but the bad guy, Johann Schmidt/Red Skull (Hugo Weaving) takes it. The object is a power cube from the god, Odin (Thor's father). The movie then moves to a recruiting office where you meet Steve Rogers (Evans) he gets rejected from serving in the army. He keeps trying and can't ever get in because he is too small. His friend, Bucky (Stan) has made it in and tells Rogers that he is leaving the next day and that Steve shouldn't serve. Well someone overhears this exchange and he is Dr. Abraham Erskine (Stanley Tucci). The doctor then lets Steve get into the army and chooses him for a special mission. The mission is to create a super solider with some serum the doctor created and some help from Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper), Tony Stark's dad. The experiment works and Steve is taller, stronger, and more fit. Unfortunately, Schmidt wants the serum and sends an agent to take it. The agent doesn't get the serum but the doctor is killed in the attempt.
