can’t wait to see the other NINE films. it really is true – America is full of idiots and will watch anything in theaters.

# 6

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.

@DJD: do you know what the word entertainment means ? . Some people love movies ….. i’m a total cinephile but that doesn’t mean i can’t enjoy some fun , popcorn flick and Cpt .America was that …. FUN .. just like Ironman . avengers etc… comic book movies and if done well they will entertain … isn’t that the whole purpose of going to the movies ? If you don’t like them .. meh .. don’t see them , but don’t insult others just because they want to have fun watching a movie > Lighten up ..Dude !!!!
