Storyline

When Simon Mills is looking for a missing scientist, he believes that a revolutionary knows as Miguel has him. And that he is using him to get his formula for something that can accelerate the aging process. So he sends Steve Rogers aka Captain America to find him. His only lead is a chemical that the scientist needs for his formula. Steve follows it to small town. It's then that Steve notices some weird things going on.Some men tell Steve to leave town. It's also then that Miguel threatens to spray the chemical on a major city unless his demands are met. Which the President will not agree to. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

Alternate Versions

There are two different opening sequences: One begins with a recap of _Captain America_ (1979) and uses the comics-book-cover logo (seen on the video box art) as the title without the "II" or subtitle. The other omits the recap and uses a more generic font for the title, spelling "Captain America II" on three lines in red, white and blue (one color for each line). See more »

A flawed but fun comic book movie
22 August 1999 | by ThalcosSee all my reviews

A fun television movie. Captain America must uncover a plot by the malevolent terrorist Miguel, who plans to rapidly age the entire city of Portland, OR. Although the Captain's costume needs a bit of help (the helmet is pretty goofy), and the romantic lead is annoying, there's some good super feats and super gadgets evenly distributed throughout the movie. Get some friends who don't mind some comic book camp, and you'll enjoy it.
