Captain America: The First Avenger

Chris Evans (who did previous hero duty as the Human Torch in the Fantastic Four movies) stars as skinny Steve Rogers who is rejected for Army duty during World War II. Drafted into a secret government experiment, though, he becomes the buffed-up super soldier Captain America. After that, it's off to Europe to battle evil Germans and a creepy-looking dude called the Red Skull (Hugo Weaving, The Matrix's Agent Smith). Joe Johnston (who gave us similar historical hero action with 1991's The Rocketeer) offers fans of the character exactly what they're looking for--loads of old-fashioned, star-spangled fisticuffs. 125 minutes PG-13.
