    you guys need to get some new ideas. this unoriginal crap I would say can’t fly, but then this comments section shows you don’t need to be intelligent to be a moviegoer.

    I really didn’t think I’d like the first Captain American, he wasn’t exactly my favorite hero, but I liked it. Glad the sequel is doing so well. I wouldn’t call it brilliant, but it was a fun ride. It’s not suppose to be Shakespeare.

    These films typically do better internationally. As an anti-American rant, that’s fairly weak.
