This 1990 all-star blockbuster sparked a resurgence in the Captain America legend, returning the comic strip character to social prominence and launching a movie franchise that shows no signs of box-office fatigue. Stylishly directed by Albert Pyun, the film is a triumph of eye-popping visuals and unabashed patriotism, and Matt Sallinger's earnest and dynamic performance remains the definitive screen portrayal of the Marvel Comics icon. Beware full-frame video transfers! 5/5
Really LIKED this movie! I loved the setting and how it took place during World War ll. Very historical and not interesting if you are a history fan. Captain America is so cool and Steve Rogers seems like such a sweet guy. Gosh and Chris Evans is HANDSOME!
terrible movie. My friend and i started laughing halfway thru the movie.
a bit boring and cheesy
A bit cheesy and over-the-top. Chris Evans was good as Captain America, but I felt the movie was a bit boring.
Good movie , shows size does not matter if you have enough determination to suceed.
prequel to the avengers movie. good but not great.
Great comic book movie, one of the best id say.
Lots of action
This was great, comic book brought to life. Great tongue and cheek dialogue witjout being comic book corny.
I think Captain America translates from a comic book to the big screen very well.
good story and true to origin.
Captain America is a great comic book adaptation made into a fantastic movie with great visual effects and a captivating story. Any fan of the book will be sure to enjoy!
I really liked this one. Lots of adventure and a few twists and turns. More than I expected. Not thrilled with the ending, however look forward to see what happens next.
I thought the movie was just ok. I expected it to be better than it was. I expected more action.
i really enjoy this movie, go see it
The special effects were very impressive and the plot overall was good.
Chris Evans was great in this movie. Loved the visual and sound effects--brought my son to see this movie in which a comic book character comes to life; hope there are more movies like this.
the movie is OK, but I wouldn't say it's spectacular or great action movie
Awesome movie, good story, good action can't wait for number 2!!!
A great retelling of the Captain America origin that will make Comic Book purists and Movie first timers both happy. Sets up the whole story and leads very nicely into The Avengers movie!!!
A great movie. Can't wait to see the movie Avengers!
Even with computer generated scene. The story itself is what worth to watch. Looking forward for the sequel.
not great. could have done the captain better
Lots of fun to watch
Entertaining movie, looking forward to the Avengers!
story line didnt flow all that well, fell asleep half way through
Great action and acting from the cast. Captain America is truly a great character and the actor portrayed him well. One of the better superhero movies.
An all around good movie. Not as epic as you expect Captain America to be but still decent.
Well done movie, great actors !
Splendid, mind-blowing action with taste of bravery that we desire to see in modern era!
Solid movie throughout, great plot and acting. Well done.
I anticipated to see this movie and it did not disappoint! It was fantastic! Great storyline, great effects, good characters and well chosen cast! Can't wait for the second one! Go see it!
EXCELLENT MOVIE. I WILL BE OWNING THIS ONE TO WATCH OVER AND OVER AGAIN.
I enjoyed the movie--lots of action
Great fun and makes me want to see the Avengers even more!
A good action movie but a little predictable.
Had so much potential, but kind of a let down. No fault of Chris Evans, he did well, but the other actors not so much.
Good movie. Cinematography was excellent!
Better than expected considering Captain America may be the corniest comic book character out there.
movie was alright. Could have had more action in it.
Great movie depicts the original comic series quite well.
