Captain America: The First Avenger by Joe Johnston, 2011 (R)

with Chris Evans (Avengers, Puncture), Hugo Weaving (Cloud Atlas, The Matrix), Natalie Dormer (Casanova), Stanley Tucci (The Hunger Games, Captain America: The First Avenger, Julie and Julia, Margin Call), Dominic Cooper (An Education), Tommy Lee Jones (Lincoln, Hope Springs, Men In Black 1, 2, 3), Hayley Atwell, Richard Armitage, Sebastian Stan

Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) volunteers for a secret experiment during World War II. Transformed into a superhero named Captain America, Steve goes after the Axis. With his perfect physique and heightened reflexes -- and his sidekick, Bucky (Sebastian Stan) -- Steve battles the Red Skull (Hugo Weaving).

Ok the summary is not very elaborated, but perhaps because it is as simplistic as that. The story is very straight forward, starting with a good weak guy who is transformed into a very powerful handsome guy who doesn't forget his values. He falls in love with a strong woman, but will never get to be with her. He fight with a lot of friends, because he is the good guy that everyone wants to follow, and against the big bad guy who happens to have the same powers as him. They incorporated some Norwegian myth of the tree of life and the Casket of Ancient Winters, which are probably only there to give depth to a flat story. The only fun thing is the cinematography, portraying New York and America of the 40's.
