It is what it is!
Now take this movie with a pinch of Salt and you'll enjoy it! although this isn't the greatest written, produced or directed movie adaptation of a comic book hero! It is an enjoyable movie to watch. I remember watching this as a child and feeling quite frightened by it! Remember IT IS A B MOVIE and IT IS A LOW BUDGET movie. But none the less can be enjoyed!

I watched it simply because i'm about to watch the new one. I'm sure that the new Cap will trump the old Cap! Technology has come a very long way and lets be honest no Producer/Director will ever be able to beat your own mind at creating a character you red about as a child. In-between the picture of a comic book are the lines which you fill in for yourself!
