"Arrogance is not a uniquely American trait, but you do it better than most."

Given the 78% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and the fact that it’s a Marvel comic put to film, I would have thought that I’d enjoy Captain America (imdb | rotten tomatoes) more than I did. It was fine, I guess, but not one of the better movies leading up to The Avengers. True, the special effects were pretty incredible (especially how they imposed Chris Evans’ face on some little guy’s body) but the rest seemed hokey, like they were going for the 40s WWII propaganda film feel throughout. Disappointing.
