The film did not get a US theatrical release when first made in 1990, but was released internationally. It finally received a limited theatrical release in the United States in July 2011 (to promote the reboot Captain America: The First Avenger (2011)), when director Albert Pyun toured the country with his director's cut.

Silly Ploy to Capitalize on Super-Hero Craze of Early-1990s.
A movie that is little more than a quick fix to capitalize on the enormous success that "Batman" had two years before this film's release, "Captain America" is a really silly production that uses some exotic locales to make up for a lack of a suitable screenplay and invisible direction. Matt Salinger is dull in the titled role and he gets no support from "Deliverance" alums Ronny Cox and Ned Beatty who both must have been desperate for work and money when they were approached with this project. The titled character comes to life during World War II but immediately gets frozen and meets up once again with the evil Red Skull in the present-day after nearly 50 years of inactivity. Yawn. 2 stars out of 5.
