One from the golden age 'A' for awesome: Credit to the writers and director of Captain America: The First Avenger, movie-goers will be chuckling at the banter and Boys' Own adventure, not Chris Evan's patriotic digs. Captain America: The First Avenger Starring Chris Evans, Hayley Atwell, Sebastian Stan, Tommy Lee Jones, Hugo Weaving, Dominic Cooper, Toby Jones, Stanley Tucci. Screenplay by Christopher Markus, Stephen McFeely, directed by Joe Johnston. 124 minutes, rated M (violence). Showing at Reading Cinemas Porirua. Besides our friendly, neighbourhood Spider- Man, Captain America is arguably the flagship super- hero of comic-book behemoth Marvel, but a few challenges have meant this super soldier has been a little slow in mak- ing his way to the big screen. At a time when shadowy vigilantes like Batman, the Watchmen and Wolverine gain the most traction with international audiences, and while a lot of us are still recovering from the bullish Bush administration and its foreign policy, a superhero dressed in red, white and blue, named Captain America, would have anyone outside the red states gagging. Cap's iconic, if daft, costume -- the Stars and Stripes re- tailored with little white wings on the mask and cuffed boots -- is tough to convert from ink to film. Just check out the woeful low-budget Captain America (1990) -- it screams yankee-doodle dandy. Captain America: The First Avenger had a fine line to traverse to not come across as patriotic cheese, and for the most part director Joe John- son has run the gauntlet, crafting a playful, endearing and nostalgic adventure that is faithful to the character's World War II roots -- a wel- come distinction among the plethora of superhero movies. I expected a routine action flick whose main function was to serve as promotional prequel for next year's The Avengers (where Cap teams up with Iron Man, Thor, Hulk, and so on), but there is a lot of heart in this picture. Though it gets bogged down in tired action sequences and a predictable finale, the first hour is as golden as the comic age in which Jack Kirby and Joe Simon first dreamed up the tale of Steve Rogers (Chris Evans -- impressively CGI-ed into a smaller frame), a bull- ied runt with a big heart who is refused entry into the United States Army due to his size and myriad of illnesses. But a scientist, Dr Erskine (Stanley Tucci), recognises Rogers' other qualities and includes him in a secret proj- ect, in which a serum has been devised to produce a squad of super soldiers'' to bring down Hitler. But only Rogers under- goes the procedure before Dr Erskine is killed by an agent of Hydra -- a Nazi faction led by the megalomaniacal Johann Schmidt/Red Skull (Hugo Weaving), who himself plans to wield a supernatural weapon against the world. In tone and story, Captain America recalls Johnston's The Rocketeer (1991) more than the recent Marvel and DC Comics adaptations. This Captain America is respectful to his comic book origin, but not slavishly so. The script writers have cleverly hemmed in a story thread from Flags of Our Fathers to make Rogers' out- landish attire credible. Both Evans and Weaving do their archetypes justice, and newbie Hayley Atwell is suit- ably adoring as Peggy Carter, Rogers' spitfire love interest. Captain America shows the potential of having so many Marvel properties under one film studio. Howard Stark -- Iron Man's dad -- plays a major role in the super soldier'' project; Red Skull dis- covers a Nordic power source that ties into Thor mythology; and Rogers' squad includes many of Nick Fury's Howling Commandos. OK, for now this will only excite the geeks, but come the release of The Aven- gers next winter, they won't be the only ones.
