The film's intended theatrical release was to have been in spring of 1990, largely to coincide with that year marking the Fifieth Anniversary of Captain America's creation and comic book debut. The timing of the proposed release was also viewed as an attempt by Marvel Comics to cash in on the sudden popularity of Super Hero/Comic Book live action film adaptations fueled by the success of Batman, released less than a year prior.

How stupid do you think we are? My people will find this place in a lot less than 24 hours.
[takes a deep breath in mock surprise]
Oh no... a hidden transmitter.
[rummages for something in his pocket]
Does it look something like eh, this?
[holds it up as the President touches his cheek]
Hm. Painlessly removed from a lower right molar. This one. While you were unconscious.
[Kimball stirs in his chair]
And so easily deactivated. But don't worry, next time we'll have it made in Japan.

Superhero movies are again a hot property thanks to the big screen adaptations of Spider-Man, X-Men and Superman. As such, many film buffs who know little or nothing about Captain America have no doubt been picking this one up at the video store. Too bad nothing but pure crapulescence awaits them.
Where to begin? The movie has a dim look to it; the acting is second-rate; and the action and battle scenes are few and far between. It will disappoint most die-hard comic book fans, perhaps as much as those silly 1970s Cap films were. On a positive note, the action scenes aren't awful when the viewer finally gets to them. As well, the characters stay pretty true to their illustrated roots, and kids aren't going to be nearly as fussy as adult moviegoers about this one.
