We saw CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER (2011) in 3D at SM Mall of Asia July 27, 2011. The movie stayed true to the comic book but Steve Rogers characterizations lack some emotional impact and lacks some sense into the character development. From 'Skinny Steve' weakling to super human strength, the transition and adaptation to his new found strength wasn't clearly portrayed. Was it instinct that he suddenly knows how to dive and swim as a super human without gaining knowledge on the art of swimming when he was still a weakling? Chris Evans or perhaps the lame script failed to portray his 'skinny steve' with asthmatic symptoms nor failed to show some sickness throughout his scenes as a weakling. What's more absurd is how 'muscular steve' failed to show his adaptability or how his new body would adapt to change, in short he unbelievably was at ease immediately with his new found strength. It was just too perfect in transition avoiding the conflicts that would make the story more realistic and mature. Yet still, it's fun to see a period film, the inclusion of the real life first edition comic book of Captain America in the film, the original costume in tights in the movie as seen in earlier comic books, the appearance of the Human Torch (in red outfit) as seen in earlier comic books (incidentally Chirs Evan also was the Human Torch in another movie) and early vision of the expo with Howard Stark, daddy of Tony. Overall, the movie has a cartoon feel to it specially the cartoony head of the Red Skull. The movie could have been much mature that targets at the same time the adults or the daddies and the mommies. My ratings: 2 out of 5 Biscuits ! P.S. - don't fail to watch the preview of THE AVENGERS after the end credits. The Avengers featured Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Hawkeye  Nick Fury and those not in the preview include Black Widow and the Hulk
