Sunday, August 14, 2011 Film Review of the Week - 'Captain America: The First Avenger'

***Warning - This one will piss you off if you have ovaries!  W

"Negative—It was the previews, that sucked me into this movie, I didn’t see the typical feminist reverse roles that Hollywood, these days, typically puts in in the previews. Case in point, we get to the basic training of the Army men, and here comes little military Army girl screaming that she is the commander of this special unit and proceeds to knock out a man who makes a sexual innuendo comment. Right there you lost me from the get-go. I wanted to leave at that point, but people were blocking my way out, and my wife said maybe she will go away in the movie. Not so, they kept her coming back over and over. In the end she is leading all the men in a machine gun shoot-em-out with the Nazis. 

I’m tired of Hollywood wanting us to believe the lie that women are as strong as men and can do anything they can. The Bible calls women the weaker vessel. In the Old Testament it called only men into war battles. I can’t get behind a Captain America who loves feminist. No thanks. I could not get into this movie with her playing the leader of the pack."
My Ratings: Moral rating: Average / Moviemaking quality: 4½
