Day 86

Movie: Captain America The First Avenger
Starring: Stanley Tucci, Dominic Cooper
Genre: Action, War, Adventure, Sci-Fi
Year: 2011
Format: Shaw Video On Demand

Plot: A young man wants to join the army in the 1940's but is told he's unable.  When a scientist gives him a change to join, he becomes the first real super solider.

This is a comic to film movie.
It ran a bit long for me, repeating some of the main elements over within the two hours.

This is also the first chapter so to speak in the Avengers series of comics to film.
There is a line in the film where the villain makes a comment about how the world could be without flags under one common goal, but the hero of the piece replies about not in his world.
That line sort of set my teeth on edge.  Isn't working towards a common world the idea of peace?

What do I think I learned from this film?
Everyone needs something to believe in in order to believe in themselves.
