Other than that, this Captain America positively screams 1970s TV movie: same generic soundtrack, same generic directing, same generic acting. There were a lot of vehicle chases, mostly boring, although I must admit “Wendy” (the scientist/girlfriend) looked really good in her black bathing suit. I find it extremely difficult to believe SyFy rated the movie “PG.” I do remember making a conscious decision not to watch the sequel when it aired, but now that the origin is out of the way, perhaps the second one is better?
I watched the second Reb Brown Captain America movie over the weekend, but I was sorting photographs while I was (ostensibly) watching. Consiquently, it barely sunck in. It does have the advantage of having Cap in his "proper" (more or less) costume for the whole thing, and it guest stars Christopher Lee. I finished my photo sorting about 20 minutes before the end of the movie, just in time to see Cap throw his motorcyclye (yes!) to the top of a wall, leap after it (yes!) then drive off it (yes!), just before the cycle itself sprouts glider wings (yes!). A boring chase scene ensures in which Reb Brown on a glider-equipted motorcycle chases Christopher Lee in a station wagon. Perhaps I'm not give this movie it's due because I was barely paying attention, but even Christorpher Lee couldn't save this turkey.
I'm still bummed I missed these movies, even if they weren't great. Maybe they'll surface again.
BTW Rise of the Planet of the Apes is terrific. I don't even like the Planet of the Apes movies but this one was really good.
