In terms of low budget cult films, this film is entertaining, but obviously leaves a lot to be desired. This film is not as awful as what everyone has said, and I quite enjoyed the sheer ridiculousness of it all. Reading on the fact that the film had tremendous issues in terms of...

I haven't seen this since I was about 10, so I can't give it a fair review. I remember my dad and I being very fond of it, and I remember that it was kind of cheap. Other than that, nothing, so I'll give it 3 stars for now... simply for nostalgic purposes.

A cheap-as-heck Captain America movie done muchly at a Yugoslavian castle. The movie has a very European feel to it, which makes it very un-American. There are small-scale skirmishes with guards, but no great battles or display of Captain America's abilities. Cheesy and sad stuff.

This week marks the release of Captain America: The First Avenger, the third superhero film released by Marvel this year and the first major theatrical release by Marvel to star 'the Captain'. This would've been the second had it not been for this low-budget 1990 film. It was ori...

I'm a nerd, but I'm not a huge one. Still, this film will probably make anyone a nerd, because no matter who you are, you're gonna look at this and say "This is an offense to The First Avenger." Wow, calling him The First Avenger isn't helping my case that I'm not that much of a ...
