Peter Travers is full of faint praise for Captain America: The First Avenger, a super hero movie that isn't at all the disaster he was expecting. Though Chris Evans gives the title character a surprising depth, the film stumbles in its second half, where the plot gets a bit boring and the action is merely "standard issue." Despite its flaws, it's a reasonably good time at the movies, though you should avoid seeing it in 3D, as those effects were added afterward and look terrible.
