sorry,folks......I liked it!
22 September 2000 | by (huntersville,n.c.) – See all my reviews

After first reading about this movie in one of the media mags,then never seeing it released,plus reading several bad reviews,I was all set to hate this movie when I finally found it on video.Well...I rather liked it ,myself.If there was anything I really didn't like,it was Cap's first loser fight against the Skull,plus it needed more 40's-Nazi-battling.Otherwise,I enjoyed it.The story wasn't as bad as everyone else says,and neither was the acting.Matt Salinger did a really nice job as Rogers/Cap,and the rest of the cast was good,also,especially Cox and Gillingham.Good to see Wade Preston again,and although Scott Paulin may have hammed it a little,since he is one of my favorite actors,I ain't gonna trash him.Pretty good movie.
