Our review:
If you missed the movie when it was released in the theaters, I recommend picking up this DVD. I am not a fan of American comic books and I don't read them, but Captain America the movie is even entertaining for someone who is not a fan. This movie is great on Blu-ray. The quality of the film is fantastic, I have to say that watching it on a large TV with Blu-ray is as good as watching it in the theaters. The movie begins from when the hero of the movie was a guy who is not physically fit enough to join the military. However, because of his courage, he was selected to receive a transformation. With it, he became stronger and faster. He quickly became Captain America and was able to serve in the military like he always wanted. Sadly, during one of missions, he lost his best friend. Even though he was able to avenge the death of his best friend, in the end, he found himself waking up in a hospital after many years had gone by. 

After watching this movie, I am very excited to see the Avenger. I can't wait to see what happens to Captain America and how he ends up joining the Avenger.
