Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: It doesn't try too hard for irony or style; the comic-book sensibility remains pure, square, and happily stupid. – David Denby, New Yorker, Aug 1, 2011

Fresh: It's very, very well done. – David Stratton, At the Movies (Australia), Jul 14, 2015

Fresh: Joe Johnston hits just the right tone, finding the heart of this often misunderstood character, and tempering proceedings with the perfect blend of humour, action and characterisation. – Erin Free, FILMINK (Australia), Jul 14, 2015

Rotten: The best bit in this year's umpteenth comic book blockbuster, Captain America: The First Avenger, is when Tommy Lee Jones eats some steak. – Kevin Maher, Times [UK], Jul 14, 2015
