Trivia:
Before Matt Salinger was given the part, both Dolph Lundgren and Arnold Schwarzenegger were up for the part of Captain America. However, Arnold's accent lost him the part and Lundgren was busy filming The Punisher (1989).See more »

Quotes:
[Last line]
Radio newscaster:In Rome today, one hundred and sixteen nations agreed to an environmental protection treaty. In a brief statement after the signing, President Kimball asked that we remember the many people who have gallantly sacrificed all to make our world a better place to live. The president closed his statement with this odd message: "To Captain America, wherever he is. We're all back in the fight."

Silly Ploy to Capitalize on Super-Hero Craze of Early-1990s., 7 July 2002
Author: tfrizzell from United States

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.
