It’s refreshing to see a “nice guy” character who is actually a nice, awesome guy. Because guess what? Nice guys aren’t myths! They are real! Problem is, I see more “Nice Guys” (aka "dickheads”) portrayed on the big screen than I see real, legitimate nice guys who AREN’T dickheads!
Steve was amazing! He was funny, snarky but his snarkiness wasn’t in a “pfft, i’m better than you” way. He was passionate, I believed that he truly did care for and love Diana, and cared about winning the war for the good side. He reminded me of the guys I’m very good friends with. They’re fun, they’re witty and I can talk to them about serious things, silly things, i say things that sound ridiculous (because i’m me and i make no sense half the time) but they don’t laugh at me. They make me laugh, they make me feel comfortable. They’re good, decent guys.
As much as Diana felt like a real woman, to me, Steve felt like a real man. I was really invested in his story from start to finish. Also, Chris Pine was fantastic.
Rewatching Star Trek Beyond it sucks this movie didn’t get the love it deserved. Also after seeing Chris Pine in The Finest Hours, Hell or High Water, and what looks to be a great performance in Wonder Woman I think he’s one of the most underappreciated actors working today. Also Star Trek Beyond is fantastic if you haven’t seen it I highly recommend it.
