I'll admit I've never been a fan of comics, mainly due to their overwhelming america-ness of most of them, so I didn't have the highest of hopes for this film (being quite a classic Brit, I find 'America The Great' thing quite tiring). Really, even taking into account my expectations, it was quite disappointing. There were a few glimmers of hope, promising a more deep or interesting story, but they were almost immediately crushed by the tedious, flat and unceasing conveyor belt of one-dimensional characters. The only parts I really enjoyed were the SchizoTech elements, but they were also tinged with the feeling that surely HYDRA (I'm assuming it's allcaps) wouldn't be the only people with such advanced technology. Overall, I found the film quite pointless and certainly very missable. Compared to Iron Man and even Thor, Captain America was a stark and disappointing contrast. By the end, I think I felt about the same as if someone had stood in front of me and monotonously recited the American constitution in full.
