Storyline

In 1945, Captain America, U.S. soldier created with a Super-Soldier Serum, is fighting the Nazis during World War II, and after averting a nuclear disaster, he falls into the icy waters of the North Atlantic, and frozen in suspended animation, only to be revived in the twenty-first century by the American military, who are hoping that they can recreate the serum in Captain America's blood in order to create more super-soldiers. But now, with the world facing the very same evil, Captain America must rise again as our last hope of survival, and lead a strong-willed team of today's superheroes.

Trivia

The original idea was for Captain America to appear during the first Gulf War, not World War II. Writer Mark Millar reconsidered, and kept Captain America's origin as it was in order to provide richer story opportunities. See more »

If you are an Ultimate Marvel fan, this film is a must see!
22 February 2006 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Being that I am only 18, I arrived after the era in which X-Men, The Avengers and other Marvel classics made their debuts. I picked some up here and there, but only when the Ultimate Marvel remakes arrived on the scene a couple of years ago did I become a dedicated Marvel fan.

Most of the new Marvel products available these days are generally Ultimate Marvel associated, those including Games and even the live-action movies. But of course, when converting a graphic novel to the screen, nothing better captivates a character than merely a moving comic - that being a cartoon! I was ecstatic when I found only a few days ago that this film had been made without my knowledge, so I immediately got hold of it and watched it - and I was NOT disappointed! The film is basically the first Season (comprising of I believe 13 comics) of The Ultimates, which was the "Ultimate Marvel" version of Marvel's original Avengers comic. All the characters (bar, unfortunately, Hawkeye for unknown reasons) appear in this comic, and not only do they bear as close a resemblance as a cartoon-film can to carefully drawn captions of a graphic novel, but the also wear the costumes found in the Ultimates comics. Too often do you find details missing in film adaptations, but despite the changes that were made to compress 13 comics into an hour and ten minutes of film time, I noticed nothing significant to annoy me.

So, as I said earlier, if you are one of the Ultimate Marvel fans, you have nothing to lose from watching this - if you find it too different from the original, then who cares? There are so many different versions of all the Marvel comics around these days, what's one more to the total on the off-chance some don't like it? I give it eight out of ten merely because the animation was good, but just not the best – there are some better quality cartoons out there, but there always will be. It is certainly better quality than the Saturday morning cartoons that we have all come to love, and if we can watch them, we sure can watch this! So, I hope my opinions have helped you. Now go watch and enjoy!
