Captain America Trailers

During World War II, a brave, patriotic American Soldier undergoes experiments to become a new supersoldier, "Captain America." Racing to Germany to sabotage the rockets of Nazi baddie "Red Skull", Captain America winds up frozen until the 1990s. He reawakens to find that the Red Skull has changed identities and is now planning to kidnap the President of the United States.


It's no definitive masterpiece but it's damn close.

Very interesting film. Was caught on the premise when seeing the trailer but unsure as to what the outcome would be for the showing. As it turns out, it was a very good film.

I am only giving this movie a 1 for the great cast, though I can't imagine what any of them were thinking. This movie was horrible

Captain America returns after over a decade on the shelf with a shiny new shield and somewhat less ridiculous costume but is it any less cheesy?Well, yeah but it's no better.Captain Americas origin story is told and after thawing out he goes after his nemesis the Red Skull.Much like the 1970's movies Cap is in civilian clothes for the vast majority of the film which I find a strange decision, the action sequences aren't as frequent but a tad more realistic.Costing over 10 million this was considered a big deal but despite a star studded cast this was actually somewhat of a bore and the leading man seemed out of his depth.Outside of the modern Cap movies I'd recommend the 70's movies over this or the 1944 classic.The Good:Red Skull actually looks quite good (For the brief moments he's in it)The Bad:Matt Salinger is such a goofy looking guy and the mask just makes it worseIncredibly boring for an action filmThings I Learnt From This Movie:Marvel actively declaring one of their heroes is inferior to a DC one seems a bit foolish

Frozen in the ice for decades, Captain America is freed to battle against arch-criminal, The Red Skull. How can i describe this film? Well it's bad first of all Red Skull looks awful both in 1943 and 1990 he just looks like a tomato, Captain America is retarded and steals cars for some unknown reason, Ronny Cox is the only good thing from this film but not even he can't save this travesty just the fight scenes with Red Skull and Captain America were awful and for some reason Red Skull knows Kung Fu moves too yeah that happened, the whole origins story is very rushed and totally bland just like the acting and the way that Captain America gets frozen or even when he saves the White House strapped in a missile is so cheesy and so 90's everyone keeps saying that films like Batman Forever, Spawn, Superman 3 and even The Punisher were bad well at least those films did what they meant to do which was to entertain but this film? My god it was awful and thank to god that Captain America: The First Avenger happened in 2011 but this version of the famous Marvel Hero definitely gets an F

I'm confirming it is lame. It suffers from the same issues as the 1994 Fantastic Four, but unlike FF I can give it a, it's so bad it's good stamp (And I'm very happy about that).Captain America is a pretty easy comic to adapt to the big screen, it's just an action adventure war movie about a guy who sometimes wears a mask. They did take some liberties with the character that make my Fanboy radar point up, but it's superficial.Steve Rodgers is now a boy from Southern California who has polio and offered himself up to the super soldier experiment headed up by a woman who escaped from the Nazis (The idea of a woman creating the star spangled avenger was cool, not enough female brainiacs in the comic book industry ).Shortly after Steve Rodgers becomes Captain America the doctor is killed making Steve and The Red Skull the only one's like them. After stopping the Red Skull from destroying the White House he is trapped in Ice for 60 years and wakes up having to stop the Red Skull, who has formed an underground crime unit that basically is Hydra without saying it,again. Proving how well Cap works as an action movie, Matt Salinger who plays Steve Rogers, wearing some sort of padding to make it look like he's got more than he does, barely wears the cartoonish suit they made for him (of course wearing the uniform makes him Captain America, duh)It's got that 80s swagger to it. The Red Skull has his daughter do all the heavy lifting for most of the movie with her small army of rich Nazi brats who drive the fastest cars and wear the hottest fashions but more than capable with the guns.They took some liberties with The Red Skull's origin too, I think this was to save money and film the entire movie in Italy (I'm also guessing that certain places in Italy look more like Southern California than New York City)I am being harsh on the movie because I've grown to like the character more now than I ever did when I was a kid and saw this, but like I expressed before, the movie does have a so bad it's food quality that makes it real enjoyable.

I remember watching this movie once when I was a kid, it was on TV and I "watched" while playing. Some days ago I was looking for something to watch on Netflix and found this movie, so I decided to re-watch this. I wasn't expecting much since some years ago I watched a negative review of this movie, but it was actually worse than I thought it would be.The script is weak with the story having a lot of inconsistencies. The villains can travel really fast from one location to another and always know were to go. Captain America's powers seems to be almost nonexistent and he fails a lot in the movie. Also most of the action scenes aren't very good.With that said, this movie is at least watchable. On the positive side the Red Skull make-up is very good and the Captain's uniform is very accurate to the comics.
