This is the Best B-movie i've ever seen!
You can't take this film too seriously. Like almost every straight to video movie. Its a B-movie! i mean come on the only thing that didn't make it a b-movie was a sex scene and they probably cut it out. The film had the feel of an old forties flick. The plot was pretty insulting though but it did capture some horrors of WW2 maybe not very well but somewhat. it was an insult ot all Cap fans to have Cap basically screw up his first mission. The Red Skull only looked decent in ONE! count it ONE Scene. The rest of the film he looked like a freak! please come on people HES THE FREAKING RED SKULL!!

Tin Man sorry to say but you insult Dean knootz by comapring his work with this garbage. its a B-movie! i've seen worse really. the acting was ok i suppose but the script didnt go anywhere and had more plotholes than the streets by my house.

Trivia

Before this movie was introduced, Marvel Comics head honcho Stan Lee wrote, "Director Albert Pyun did it so well and so excitingly that everyone in the audience [at the screening] kept clamoring for more," to account for the film being scheduled for a re-shoot.


Quotes

Red Skull: Fifty years ago, you were Dr. Vaselli's ridiculous idea. You remain a clownish symbol that no one cares about.
Captain America: I care.
Red Skull: You care? Then come to me, my brother. Let us see if this heart of yours is stronger than my hate.


Goofs

When the guard returns to retrieve the President from his now-empty cell, he goes through all the effort of unlocking the door and stepping inside before realizing the cell is empty and issuing orders to his henchmen to go find the President, despite the cell being only large enough for one person, and the fact that he could see it was empty when he walked up to the door.

Alternate Versions

Prior to the video release, a pirated copy of Captain America was available which had three extra scenes not included in the final cut:

  • There is additional dialogue between Steve Rogers and Bernie at the docks before Steve is sent off on his secret mission.
  • After Captain America parachutes down into Nazi territory, he lands in the forest and is met by two Ally spies, a male and a female, who proceed to show him the way to the enemy base. They are ambushed by Nazis, who kill the two spies before Cap finishes them all off. Cap then holds the dying female spy in his arms and is reminded of his girlfriend, Bernie, back in the United States.
  • There is an additional scene which explores the character of the Red Skull more, and it attempts to make him look much more like a tragic figure, haunted by his painful past. In the 1990's, as Steve Rogers is reviewing the deaths of Martin Luther King and John Kennedy and realizing that the Red Skull is to blame, the Red Skull is shown weeping over the piano seen at the end of the film, re-living the visitation of the Italian army storming into his house, shooting his family, and kidnapping him for their experiments. This scene shows that the Red Skull genuinely hates who he has become.
