Storyline

When a commercial artist is almost murdered by spies looking for his late father's secrets, he is saved in surgery when the FLAG formula is injected into him. This serum not only healed him but also gave him tremendous strength and lightening reflexes. To help him retaliate for his attack, a government agency equipments him with a special motorcycle loaded with gadgets and a detachable shield is not only bulletproof, but can be thrown as a offensive returning weapon. Thus armed, he battles against the nation's enemies as the Sentinel of Liberty, Captain America. Written by Kenneth Chisholm <kchishol@execulink.com>

Nay! 'Tis pure cheesy goodness!
5 August 2004 | by See all my reviews

I will not hear a word spoken against this fine movie. It's great for watching when getting together with your sarcastic friends. You know the ones I mean. The kind that rent a schlock horror movie simply so they can make fun of it.

The production values may lag, the acting may make you wince, and the origin of Captain America is shattered into a million zillion pieces.There is, however,one thing that makes it the greatest Captain America movie of all time: The Captain America movie from 1991! That one makes this one look like Citizen Kane. Plus, this one has a motorcycle!

Yes folks, if terrorists ever force you to choose one Captain America to watch at gunpoint, make it this one.
