  • Meek U.S. Army soldier Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) takes part in an experimental military program that infuses him with super-human powers, and uses his newfound strength to battle the villainous Red Skull (Hugo Weaving) in this comic-book adventure from director Joe Johnston (THE WOLFMAN, THE ROCKETEER). Tommy Lee Jones, Neal McDonough, and Stanley Tucci co-star in a film written by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeeley (who previously collaborated on THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA: THE LION, THE WITCH, AND THE WARDROBE).

  • Critic Reviews
    "Evans makes a hell of an MVP."
    Rolling Stone

    "As the titular comic book character, Chris Evans has an appealing, earnest quality....Evans provides just the right human anchor to the flash and dazzle of director Joe Johnston's production."
    USA Today

    3 stars out of 4 -- "[I]t's a terrific movie....[T]he World War II-era drama returns the form to its classic roots..."
    Washington Post

    3 stars out of 4 -- "[H]ere is a real movie....It has the texture and takes the care to be a full-blown film."
    Chicago Sun-Times

    "Evans has gone the Marvel route before....[T]his part brings out an appealing earnestness and humility in the actor that is certainly not business as usual in the comic book superhero genre."
    Los Angeles Times

    "[T]he film reaches back to the seed of all superhero fantasy: the myth of the 98-pound weakling transfigured....Evans is an appealing actor..." -- Grade: B
    Entertainment Weekly

    3 stars out of 5 -- "[Johnston] manages to pull out the stops for the finale: an explosive confrontation above the clouds that then quiets down for a touching farewell."
    Total Film

    4 stars out of 5 -- "Joe Johnston shrink-wraps Americana in the super-powered physique of star Chris Evans and serviceably approximates a brisk, RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK-esque sense of adventure..."
    Box Office

    "Director Joe Johnston went the retro route in the underrated THE ROCKETEER, and again catches the 1940s tone well: the film finds an acceptable rationale for the Captain American persona..."
