  • 5 stars "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"
  • 5 stars "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!"
