Thank the Lord! Captain America gives you an A+ option to escape the heat this weekend!

Are you ready to have a rollicking good time with Chris Evans as delicious man candy? Then snap up a ticket to Captain America and settle in to a Raiders of the Lost Ark experience set in WWII.

Chris plays 98 lbs. Brooklyn boy weakling Steve Rogers. Steve is desperate to enlist in the U.S. army in 1941 to fight the Nazi bullies. He’s been bullied all his life and wants his chance to fight back. The only problem is that he’s asthmatic, among other health disqualifying things.

Luckily, when he tries to enlist on his fifth try, he runs into German escapee Dr. Erskine (Stanley Tucci) who sees potential in Steve to be his first “super soldier.”

The brilliant doctor has developed a serum which can take a weakling like Steve and turn him into a big buff superhero, who hilariously earns the name Captain America.

The two bonuses with Steve are that he has the brains to match his new brawn AND he has an incorruptible kindness that makes him the perfect match for Dr. Eskine’s nemesis, the Nazi Scientist, Red Skull, who reads the evil Nazi deep science division, the Hydra organization Skull, who has voldemort-style nose issues, has harnessed a mythical and dangerous Raiders or the Lost Ark style power source that Captain America must discover and battle.

Let the action begin. And watching the action is fun, but fortunately, unlike Transformers, doesn’t take over all the screen time.

Chris strikes romantic sparks with beautiful British drill Sergeant/ secret agent Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) and banter chemistry with a gruff American Colonel who looks like he’s having a blast through the whole thing, Chester Phillips (Tommy Lee Jones).

I can guarantee you two hours of fun with Chris Evans and a deep desire to see the sequel. When is it coming out?!
