Matt Salinger is absolutely adequate as the Star Spangled Avenger and The Red Skull is actually a tad menacing (and a full on NAZI). Observe this exchange that occurs when the Red Skull and Cap face off in the modern day. It at least shows the dynamics were understood by the writers and they were trying to get it right.
Fifty years ago, you were Dr. Vaselli’s ridiculous idea. You remain a clownish symbol that no one cares about.
So the word is that this is getting a Director’s cut Blu Ray release in May to capitalize on the new flick and I am more than willing to give it another look at this point in time.
What I am NOT willing to take another look at is ANY of the Captain America debacles put out in the 1970’s. You know – the one where his shield is the front windscreen on his goofy Motorcycle and he wears a helmet that makes him look like Captain Shortbus . . .
DID NOT ASK.
DO NOT WANT.
