Italy 1936: Doctor Maria Vaselli (Carla Cassola) ahs developed a method to turn a human into some sort of superman, but when she sees the Italians use it on a kidnapped kid, she comes to the conclusion she has joined forces with the wrong people ...

USA 1943: Doc Vaselli has relocated to the USA, and to right the wrong she has done, she now wants to produce an army of supersoldiers for the Americans to fight the Axis forces and their supercriminal leader, the Red Skull (Scott Paulin), who is of course the first creation of doc Vaselli. Anyways, after creating only one supersoldier, from here on known as Captain America (Matt Salinger), agents of the Red Skull destroy Doc Vaselli's lab and kill her. Only a few days later, Captain America is sent to Italy, where the Red Skull wants to launch a rocket set to destroy the White House. Cap is supposed to prevent it, instead though is tied to the rocket and shot to Washington riding it. However, when the rocket almost hits a young boy (Garette Ratcliff Hanson), the Cap kicks the rocket so it changes its course and comes down somewhere in Alaska.

Alaska, the 1990's: An expedition to Alaska finds the frozen Captain America, and once he's thawed, he makes it back to the USA, convinced it's still 1943 and the USA is overrun by Nazis. It's only when he makes it back to his sweetheart's (Kim Gillingham) house and finds out she has aged quite a bit that it sloowly dawns upon him a bit more time than he thought has passed. However, the Red Skull is still in business, and for whatever reason, he soon sees to it that Cap's sweetheart is killed - however, Cap teams up with her daughter Sharon (also Kim Gillingham) to right a few wrongs. And speaking of wrongs, the Red Skull has only recently kidnapped the American president (Ronny Cox), who just happens to be the very boy Captain America saved from being hit by the Skull's rocket back in '43.

Why did Mr Skull kidnap Mr Prez?

Because Mr Prez wanted to save the enviroment (an American president? Yeah, right.) and the Red Skull represents all sorts of evil businessmen.

Slowly but surely, Captain America and Sharon close in on the Red Skull, who presently resides in a seaside castle in Italy, and of course, Cap ultimately saves the president - which is when the Red Skull decides to kill himself by blowing up all of Italy ... but Sharon just happens to have a recording of the very day when the boy who later became the Skull was kidnapped back in the day, and when the Skull hears that, he pauses ... long enough to be pushed off a cliff before hitting his detonator.


Rather disappointing big screen version of Marvel's most patriotic superhero comic that rather miserably fails to play with its source material's campier aspects (after all, this is a guy running around with little wings on his mask), yet tries to integrate them in a very routine and rather weak action plot. Add to this rather weakly handled action sequences, a sub-par castand an uninspired directorial effort, and you are left with pretty little actually.
