Saw this movie in the video store several years ago. Was not a fan of Captain America (the comic), but it was Marvel so I gave it a shot. I didn't expect much from Marvel. It was a B-movie. Not some abomination that should be condemned, though, it was watchable. I actually liked it. Sure the effects weren't great, but what do you expect from Marvel and a B-movie. Someone who knows nothing of CA can sit, watch and enjoy this movie. I would say it is more suited for the 6-12 year old range, but as long as you're not going to critique every minor flaw...give it a shot. Parents can let their kids watch this flick without a worry, they might even learn something about patriotism.
What got me though was the striking similarities with the Mel Gibson Movie "Forever Young." I found Captain America to be the better of the two.
Decent movie. Give it a shot.
