Captain America: The First Avenger



I FINALLY got a chance to see this movie. I was dreading doing so after the way Hollywood BUTCHERED The Green Lantern.

It is SOOOOOOOOOOO much a better movie than GL!

They stuck fairly close to the source material, with a couple notable exceptions.

In fact, if you are like me and grew up reading the comic book, you'll notice the whole part where they "create" him is lifted straight from the comic, right down to dialogue.

Chris Evans did a superb job in the title role, too.

And, since it's a Marvel movie, stay through the closing credits to be rewarded with a small taste of The Avengers.

Good to hear, RW, I hope that it has more success than other attempts at staying close to the original. I absolutely loved DUNE which, to me, was very close to the book and it was a flop!

The original Bat Man series with Adam West and Burt Ward kept very close to the comics, too. I could watch it then go and get the comic it was based on.
