This movie was a surprise for me because my expectations were not very high and yet it delivered one very good movie. Steve Rogers (Evans) is determined to join the army and fight for his country but his health and body are holding him back. He has a heart that cannot be matched but physically he cannot be approved. He has tried to enlist in several different areas and gets rejected by all of them until he runs into Dr. Abraham Erskine (Tucci) who sees the good in Rogers. Erskine allows him to enter a secret project and Rogers is on his way to becoming Captain America. There are many tests along the way but as Erskine predicted his good traits would shine through. Great underlying messages in this movie and a well done movie as well.
