4.0 out of 5 stars "..CHEESY FUN.." 21 April 2012
Format:DVD
This is not to be confused with the new version of the captain America movie, this is the original 1990 version from the director of nemesis and cyborg!! It has slight similarities in story to the new version but mainly goes in a different direction, the main villain is still red skull who looks pretty cool and has some decent make up effects, theres plenty of action all done in a cheesy fashion not quite as exciting as you want it but this was twenty years ago!! If you love old cheesy action movies and comic book films then its worth checking out for a bit of old retro fun. No features on disc.

3.0 out of 5 stars A nice addition for Marvel Film collectors 25 Mar 2012
Format:DVD
With the new version of the story released last year, a lot of people have forgotten the 1990 version of the story as they have the 1970's TV movies. The 1990 version of Captain America was put together by Menahem Golan's short lived 21st Century Film Corporation. Golan's company was formed after he lost control of Cannon Films (Death Wish sequels, American Ninja and various Chuck Norris epics) and to be honest Captain America is all but in name a Cannon film. That should give you some idea of how Marvel's character would be put on screen.

The story we all know is that Steve Rogers (Matt Salinger), the sickly all American boy is transformed into Cap and gets frozen in ice after battling The Red Skull. Waking up in the 90's Rogers learns that Skull is still alive and living in Italy (well, filmed in the old Yugoslavia actually). So we now have a story involving the President of America, a shady General and the Skull still wanting to take over the world.

Director Albert (Cyborg, Dollman) Pyun does well with obviously a low budget and the film is quite charming once you get past the naff music score and some very scary late 80's fashions. It also has a great supporting cast including Ronny Cox, Ned Beatty and Darren McGavin. What's also terrific is that Cap's uniform is cool and he uses his iconic shield a fair amount staying faithful to the source material.

I haven't seen it in years (since the old 20/20 vision video release in a big silver box) and it's nice to see it being released now after such a long time being unavailable. It's sitting proudly on my shelf next to the Bill Bixby Hulk DVD's and my collection of Nick Hammond 1970's Spidey films, now there is a series that should be released.

5.0 out of 5 stars Full HD for a collector ! 13 Aug 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I couldn't believe it but this Blu Ray is a REGION FREE even if it said on the backpaper that's a Region A NTSC.
If you are a fan of Captain America, you can't missed it, yes I know it's a cheesy and campy movie but take a look at the image : it's amazing.

Better than the DVD !!!!! And on the special features, you have a brand new featurette with a looking back at Cap's movie with director Albert Pyun and star Matt Salinger !

PS : We are on the page of the Blu Ray and Amazon put commentaries about the DVD ! I don't understand !

By Isis
Format:DVD
Good ripping yarn - plenty of action and true to the graphic novel. Good for a rainy day over if you can't find anything else to watch.

I like films containing comic book heroes and Captain America was such a good film. The outfit was updated and looked realistic. The storyline was gripping. It didn't disappoint.
