Plot development and motivations were so obscure or obtuse all you can do to make sense of it is apply catchphrases from what it stole from... er, 'homaged'. Its editing cadence is the clear highlight.
Rewatched this, and I thought it's still a cool action flick. This film deserves more than what people credit it for. As expected, good performance by a very young Dakota Fanning. While Chris Evans is ever the charming action hero. He is Captain America, after all. Camilla Belle, well.. she's still the same. I sincerely hope to see her surpass her current acting style and explore her acting abilities.
I felt like the acting was a bit bad in some places, and there wasn't much development. But personally i think the plot really holds it together, I love this film for the pace, for its excitement. I would gladly watch it again, not because of how well done it is, but because i love the story, the backdrop, the red letters, yeah it was amazing.
