Haiku Revieu: Captain America

Captain America (****)

Scrawny Steve gets buff
So eff yeah, America
Watch out for that shield

Possible spoilers ahead, ye been warned.

I am absolutely beat today, so I don't have much in the way of intelligent things to say about the movie. Pros: It had a great mix of humor and seriousness, pretty awesome fight scenes, fun secondary characters, an absolutely huge (in the chest) and perfectly toned down in the sarcasm department Chris Evans and the brilliant Hugo Weaving as a very cool-looking Red Skull. Cons: Awkward CGI at times before Steve goes through the program, a tad lacking in actual plot, a quasi-sad ending.

Overall, it was a great film. I'd like to see it again soon. I don't know much about the Cap other than little things I've heard, so I have no idea how close to actual Cap canon it is, but I think it tied in well with the established Marvel film universe.

I've written an alternate third line to today's haiku in an ode to the nearly epic post-credits teaser trailer:

And The Avengers 

You heard that right. I'm so looking forward to May.
