IF the MOVIE IS AS FUNNY AS ITS TRAILER, THIS ONE SHOULD BE a LAUGH RIOT! 

HERE's WHERE to "AVENGE" YOURSELF, and ARGUE WHY WE SHOULD DEMOTE http://www.razzies.com/forum/forum-discussion-addl-info-on-captain-america_forum540.html -  to the LOWLY RANK of RAZZIE® CONTENDER. 

AND, FOR the CURIOUS, HERE's the http://www.razzies.com/forum/our-take-on-captain-america_forum539.html -  to CHECK OUT OUR "OFFICIAL TAKE" on the FILM...

I had/have a feeling about this one... The trailers made it look like a combination of G.I.:The Rise of Cobra and Pearl Harbor. Not to mention the fact that the superhero in question looks extremelly dated (which I already pointed out in the Green Lantern-forum)

And considering that it comes out the weekend after the final Harry Potter-installment, I highly doubt if it will make as much money as X-Men: First Class, Thor or even Green Lantern...

Oh and HeadRAZZ, I see that you've had a change of heart about starting a forum for the Winnie the Pooh-movie.

RESPONSE from HEAD RAZZberry: Actually, I haven't fully decided against putting up a "Forum discussion" on WINNIE THE POOH -- it opens July 15, but we may go with the Sarah Palin documentary UNDEFEATED (which opens in limited release that same day) instead.

For those interested, here's  the http://www.razzies.com/forum/topic5197_post43895.html#43895 - to join our POOH discussion...

HeadRAZZ, Just out of curiosity, If the Pooh "forum" will only be up for discussion pruposes, wouldn't it be a better Idea to make a poll out of it? (unless of course that takes too much time to make)...

update: I see that you've edited your post, which now makes this post look a bit out-of-context...

I would really like it if The Undefeated would get a forum (eventhought I am not sure if I will be able to see it), mainly because I like the idea of seeing Sarah Palin in the worst actress-category on the nomination ballot.

Assuming this film will fail, I say this to the actor who plays Captain America: "Your warrior's build and giant pecs won't save you this time!"
 
If there was a poll regarding Winnie the Pooh 2011, what would it ask?
 
If there was a poll regarding Undefeated, would it ask if we wanted the forum? And is it likely to get as negative reviews as Atlas Shrugged: Part I, the other limited release crash related to the Tea Party?

If The Undefeated: The Sarah Palin Story gets a forum, could it be possible that it would get a joined nomination with Atlas Shrugged: Part I in the same way that Meet the Spartans and Disaster Movie did a couple of years ago?

It might flop oversees but only because it has the term "America" in it. Otherwise I'm sure the reviews will great because critics seem to love to eat up Marvel's generic overdone superhero films.

The dumbest thing about the trailer: They took Chris Evans' head and on put it on what looked like the body of a 5 year old. I know Steve Rogers was a "90 pound weakling" before becoming Captain America, but come on; his head was not twice the size of his body!
 
Oh, and by the way, Captain America had a steady boost in popularity over the past decade due to 9/11 and a storyline in which he was killed off (only to come back to life, because such is the tradition in comic books), so he is NOT forgotten.

I think this should also be mentioned, with the death of Osama Bin Liden, there might be a wave of patriotism in America strong enough to get people to see this movie for it's Pro-American image. That, and some people just want something to wash the bad aftertaste of "Indiana Jones 4" out of their mouths with a good old fashion movie serial type of movie.

Michaels, Don't you think that it will have a hard time getting out of the shadow of the last Harry Potter-movie (which is being released the weekend before) and which is already being predicted to be the most successfull movie of the year (box office-wise) AND the most succesfull movie in the franchise (also box office-wise)?

I'm not saying "Captain America" will be a runaway hit that will shatter records, but I think it will do well for itself, probably better than "Green Lantern" did.

I'm finding it hard to believe both movies were made for $300 million, considering "GL" was bloated with CGI from start to finish. I was talking more like $80-100 million opening weekend for "Cap", unlike "GL" which opened with under $60 million.

I think the real bottomline question is, even if this movie were flawless and entertaining, would it find an audience? Reviving Captain America in 2011 has all the relevance of Copperhead or Captain Celluloid.

I think some people are confused here. I'm under the impression many posters here think Captain America was created in the 1930s/1940s, disappeared from comics for decades, and only now Marvel is bringing him back. Um, no, far from it. Cap was brought back into comic books in the 1960s, the same time Spider-Man, Ironman, X-Men, and all the major Marvel players were invented. Also, this movie is the final set-up for next year's "Avengers", which Cap is also a part of, so it's not like they are pulling this movie out of thin air, there's a reason for it. It's the final set-up for the huge payoff (yes, the "pay" part is intended).
 
I think what people here are really making fun of this for is the old school movie serial feel of the movie. I'm sure the studio heads were saying the same thing 30 years ago when "Raiders of the Lost Ark" was pitched to them.

Maybe that's why this one is the only movie with the word "Avenger" in the title: maybe they think people won't recognize his name otherwise. But I doubt it. I've played a few Marvel crossover video-games, and CAPTAIN AMERICA has appeared in most of them. There are many dated characters (possibly including him) but that doesn't mean he's forgotten.

I don't think CA is necessary "forgotten," I just think he has become irrelevant. Even if you would go out and ask 100 comic book geeks who their half dozen favorite super heroes are, Captain America wouldn't make a lot of lists.  And the sale for Raiders of the Lost Ark back in the 70's might have been an interesting presentation, but the one overwhelming thing it had going for it was a collaboration of two of the hottest young filmmakers in Hollywood. What does this film have?

Thor has the best weekend for a comic book movie this year, and that was 68 million. I don't think for a second that Captain America's opening weekend is going to be higher than 70 million -- at best it will between 40 and 60 million. 

Also, clarify what I said earlier, I know I'm going to enjoy Green Lantern more than Captain America.

1. I think it's going to be close to $60-70 million, because Harry Potter fans may cool off by then.  

2. You don't know that for sure, dude. "Cap" might surprise you!

Hollywood is not going to stop making comic book movies until they all start being box office bombs. Good luck with that ever happening, considering comic book fan bases date back 7 decades. So, if you don't like them, simply don't watch them.

It looks like we have a critical hit in Captain Am, at least according to RottenTomatoes.  And since RT is viewed by so many on this site as the source of all things worth knowing about a film, I guess that pretty much seals it, unless of course someone were to actually, you know, see the thing and report about it.  What a concept.  I had my misgivings about the film, too, but now I am curious and may actually see it.  

Note: I am increasingly distrustful of RT and care less and less about it's goofy numbers.  Sucker Punch was a brilliant movie and The Tree of Life, it tears me up to say this, was at best a sad reminder of how far the great Terry has fallen.  Why don't we just drop RT completely?  I think anyone who takes movies seriously would.  But this is the DailyRaz so . . .

R.T. isn't a perfect system,but aside from it and Metacritic there aren't more trust worthy sites.Although the numbers in R.T. can be wrong(and they've been in some ocassions),the concensus sentence is never wrong.Maybe this movie deserves less than 68-75%,or more,but according to the concensus is a good movie either way.

Out of all superhero films that have come out this year, Captain America is not only the best one, but is also the only one that I actually liked. Now, some might argue that X-Men: First Class was fantastic (I am NOT a fan of Thor), but, while not bad, I felt it didn't reach its potential. As for Captain America, its main distinction to other summer films is that it doesn't dive right into the action. I appreciated the time it took to develop its characters, and, gee, there actually seemed to be a story going on here. I also have to warn those of you who might expect a straight up action flick to not get your hopes high. Although it didn't bother me, it does take a while before an action scene actually appears. 

Another distinction that separates itself from other superhero films is the look of the film, coinciding its setting in 1942. Captain America looks and feels like an old-fashion film, and I really embraced it. This is also due to Alan Silvestri's score, which feels more classic than modern film scores. Our protagonist, Steve Rogers, feels like a real person which adds an emotional weight to the film. We feel for him and want him to succeed in his goal. And once the story is set up and the action finally comes to play, the action doesn't seem to appear for action's sake. It actually propels the story. It also doesn't hurt having a romance brewing between him and Peggy Carter. It was sweet and didn't feel forced to me. 

Chris Evans plays the title character and he's great playing both the skinny, average Joe and the buff, all-American hero. He certainly steps up his performance here compared to his other superhero character, Johnny Storm. He brings a sort of charisma and puppy dog charm to his role, and it seems like an automatic response to be on his side when we first meet his character. Hayley Atwell is totally believable as his love interest as well. I would love to see what other things she has to offer in future roles. With all good superhero films, there must be a villain to match it. In that case, it's not surprising that Hugo Weaving doesn't disappoint. Just as the person he is, he can withhold an audience's attention without even trying. 

I also liked the relationship between Evans and Sebastian Stan, who plays his best friend. It felt authentic. Tommy Lee Jones brings a few laughs as well. Playing Tony Stark's father, Dominic Cooper thankfully doesn't feel like an Iron Man character being in an Avenger's flick just to string in the Avenger characters together because Thor and Iron Man 2 felt like films made just for the Avengers flick rather than individual films themselves. Stanley Tucci is good in a small role, although the German accent does push it a little. 

With a good story, great characters, great action scenes, and an involving narrative, Captain America is definitely a hit for Marvel Studios. The unique 1940s setting also sets itself apart from other superhero films, and Chris Evans is terrific in the title role. Captain America doesn't feel like your usual popcorn summer flick, and maybe it's a good thing it isn't. Also, stay after the credits to see a cool Avengers trailer. 8/10

I don't care what critics thought... I saw this movie and it was a mess...  

The movie lacks structure. The final battle resembled the G.I. Joe-movie just a little too much... and the ending just angered me (It's one thing to give your movie an open ending, It's a completely different thing to make the entire movie look like an introduction for a completely differenty movie ---The Avengers---)

Can someone please explain why two German characters would speak English to each other, instead of speaking German?

1. Dude, nowadays, ALL movies are just 90-120 minute long set-ups to other movies. Be it sequel, spin-off, or otherwise.
 
2. I think that has already been addressed in other subforums: Americans hate having to read subtitles.

It was a good movie but the wrong type of hero for our age. He's too cookie cutter compared to the complex hero's like Stark and Banner. Going to be nice to see how Cap fits in with the Avengers *has a geek moment*

Well, yes, that's the point. He's the classic good is good and evil is evil, Golden Age comic book hero. That's why he and Stark will not get along in "Avengers".

I just saw it,and gave it 6/10.

Recent Marvel movies have had post-credit scenes.This one sucked,because it was literally a teaser trailer for THE AVENGERS.Oh,I was teased alright.

I don't want this to be nominated for anything,not even if Chris Evans gets nominated for WHAT'S YOUR NUMBER?.

I forgot to say that the biggest problem was about Hayley Atwell.At times,she was such a badass,she outshined Chris Evans.

On this episode, I compare this to the 1990 version (skip to 03:28):
