Captain America may be the first Avenger, but his movie is the last film leading up to next year’s blockbuster The Avengers. As a superhero fan I cannot wait to see the stars of the Incredible Hulk, Ironman and Thor team up on the big screen, but before all that I had to see how the live action...

ConsThe ending is a little disappointing

There seems to be a continuous stream of super-hero movies at the moment and if I'm perfectly honest I'm getting a little bored. Yes, they're all different superheroes and they all have different powers but essentially the plot lines are all the same. Bad guy emerges. Ordinary man suddenly turned...

Somehow, you always knew that Captain America was going to end up like just another one of those chest pumping hoo-RAH films that appeal more to an American audience than us across the Pond. However, never one to be dissuaded by rumour and stereotype, I went into this with the same excitement and...

I would highly recommend this to any comic fan. I...
