According to late actor Steve James (The American Ninja movies) while at Adventure Con 1993, James said he had two meetings with producers at Cannon Films in 1984. And he was was given a script and concept art. James said the producers ask him to play the Marvel's Falcon next to Michael Dudikoff's Captain America. Steve James was set to play Falcon/Sam Wilson, all the way up until the Stephen Tolkin script was introduced. See more »

Lt. Colonel Louis:
Captain America. Whatever happened to him?
He went on one mission. He didn't get his man, and he sat out the rest of the war. He sat out all the wars. No big surprise though, considering he was 4-F to start with. Don't know why anyone thought a little cellular restructuring could change that.

I remember when this movie came out in 1990. It was released in Cannon Cinemas in Great Britain. Captain America himself was there on the opening night handing out shields,flags and a big ol' slice of moms apple pie. I was expecting typical Cannon material, cheap and cheerful, and looked forward as the movie started. Then the lights went out, the movie started and i had to sit through 90mins of the most uninspired trash. The problem lies first and formost with the script. It has awfull dialougue weak characters and worst of all no humour. How can we laugh along with the movie if there are no laughs?. Albert Pyun is the best director to be expected for such a project, both Cyborg and Sword and the Sorceror were half decent, but he has a really difficult time handeling this movie. Aslo, Mat Sallinger is TOO bland as Captain America. Maybe if Cannon had forked out for someone like Dolph Lundgren or Miles O'Keefe [both had worked for Cannon before], we'd have sympathised with Cap more. Worst still is Scot Paulin as The Red Skull. A character as unbelievable as that needs a little humour. Just as Frank Langella was a good choice as Skelator in Cannon's earlier Masters of the Universe, Paulin is bad. Thank god for Ned Beatty and Ronny Cox, who just about rescue this poor film from dying. Also there is half decent special effects and a good version of Caps suit, sheild. Overall though, a disappointment. Possibly the most unrememborable film in history
