The following mental images flashed by while watching Kruger on-screen. Those who have seen Captain America should get the inferences...those who have not should have nothing spoiled...
IMHO, RA did with the Heinz Kruger role exactly what was called for - He dripped with the anal retentive single-mindedness you would expect from someone who was determined to help evil incarnate conquer the world. At one point I thought to myself "nasty sort that Heinz...go get 'em Cap!" ;)
Hubby and I agreed in our assessment of the film overall - despite the fact superhero movies are not our first choice in entertainment, we'd much rather the viewing public see this type of uplifting story than many of the other offerings emanating from most studios. The leading character is definitely the type of role model we want our children to emulate.
As for RA's American accent, it sounded mid-western to me. When I asked dh his impression he replied "I didn't even notice - so apparently it registered American for me."
Perhaps the next time, RA could fight side by side with Capt America...preferably not as a blonde..
Yet another language...hear RA say "da first of many" in Spanish..
