    Stefancos got a reaction from Chen G. in What Is The Last Film You Watched? (Older Films)   
    Captain America: The First Avenger.
     
    Surprisingly unengaging film, which despite an excellent cast, solid director and excellent production values doesn't feel all that interesting.
     
    Its an important film in that it has Cap's origin story and contain several elements the MCU will continue to draw from.
    The Tesseract and Peggy Carter being the two most vital parts.
     
    The main issue is that after Steve is given the serum, there's not a whole lot of plot left. The second half of the film mostly has Cap kicking ass in WWII Europe, untill he finally has to sacrifice himself.
     
    Steve Rogers isn't yet an man out of time here, nor is he dealing with any kind of moral quandary like in later films. I guess the point of this film was to always have him end up in the present day. So everything Cap does in the 1940's battle field is a bit.... inconsequential.
    Cap's Howling Commando's for example aren't all that interesting. Tommy Lee Jones is fine, but its the kinda role we have seen in 100 other war films. 
     
    Good points. Chris Evans is just right in the role, as is Haley Atwell as Peggy Carter actually, who would become the most enduring character from this film after its lead. And their arc together thoughout 3 phases of MCU is great.
     
    Alan Silvestri composes the first truly successful MCU score and sets a template for his 3 subsequent scores.
     
    Overall, the film is fine.

    Ive been in an awful place for about a year now, ive sought help in the summer, and right now i'm more frustrated by it than anything. (Bloody waiting lists! All Thatcher's fault!)
    Basically any form of treatment is on hold because they want to test me first, but that probably won't be till sometime next year. 
     
    I've considered just walking away from it, but that would leave me with nothing. And no hope of it getting better.
     
    Get help Richard! You don't wanna chuck it in now you finally figured out how you changed your screen name!
