Did You Know?

Goofs:
Incorrectly regarded as goofs: Dr. Mills states that the test rat's body is rejecting the FLAG serum. But this is impossible: human steroids would be chemically similar or identical to rodent steroids - there would be little if any rejection. - The FLAG serum was designed using cells from Steve's dad and so was engineered to work specifically for his genetic structure, which is why they asked Steve to take the serum instead of finding someone else.See more »
Quotes:
Steve Rogers:The American ideal. It's a little tough to find these days, isn't it?
Dr. Simon Mills:Not if you know where to look.
Steve Rogers:Right on.

Poor TV Film Version., 23 August 2013
Author: AaronCapenBanner from North America

Before Chris Evans brought the role to the big screen, Reb Brown debuted as Captain America/Steve Rogers, in this limp, mechanical adaptation of the comic book. Plot lurches along without any style or substance, just a stale series of uninteresting character development, before the uninspired action scenes. Oh yes, there was a sequel.

You might think that the creators would have learned something from the marvelous "The Incredible Hulk" TV series with Bill Bixby, but this has none of that show's heart or intelligence.

Perhaps I'm being too harsh, since it is innocuous enough, but still...

Released on DVD as a double feature with Part II, from Shout Factory, on loan from Universal(which also produced "The Incredible Hulk")
