Editorial Reviews

Captain America - When former Marine Steve Rogers is in an accident, his only hope for recovery is an injection of the FLAG super-serum created years ago by his own father which enhances each of his senses, as well as gives him great strength and fast reflexes. And to help him bring his attackers to justice, a government agency outfits him with a motorcycle and powerful shield, then turns the newly formed Captain America loose on the nation s enemies.

Captain America II: Death Too Soon - Captain America returns to carry on the legacy of his father and defend the country this time, however, he faces off against the terrorist known only as Miguel and the threat of a chemical agent that rapidly ages those who come in contact with it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun Blast From The Past October 24, 2011
Format:DVD
This is a review of the recently released Captain America/Captain America II: Death Too Soon DVD. The movies starred Reb Brown as Steve Rogers/Captain America and Len Birman as Dr. Simon Mills.

I grew up watching these films when they first aired on television in the late '70's. I had a great time watching them then and I had a great time watching them again this past week after I purchased this DVD.

Are the films perfect? No, not at all. But if you watch the films for what they're intended to be, notably a fun campy romp a la the 60's Batman series, I think you'll enjoy them more than if you watch them in a serious manner.

I was also pleased to see that the films are included in their entirety. They're not chopped up like they were when Syfy broadcast them last summer before Captain America: The First Avenger premiered in theaters.

On to the review of the disc itself. Equipment used to watch this DVD was a Sony HDTV, Sony 3D Blu-Ray Player and Sony 6.1 home theater surround sound.

I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the presentation. The films looked pretty good for material that was shot for television over 30 years ago. I did find myself wishing that some extra work could have been done to make them even more colorful.

The sound left a lot to be desired in my opinion. I wish the audio on these two movies could have been released in better fidelity (5.1 sound, as they were broadcast on Syfy last summer). As it is, the films are presented in a 2.0 soundtrack which I think is ok but it's nothing special.

When you take into consideration the amount of dubbed in sounds such as Captain America's motorcycle, explosions & gunfire, etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars A piece of nostalgia that I still enjoy August 31, 2011
By B. Betz
Format:DVD
I remember watching this (and the first Captain America movie) on CBS in the late 1970s. I thought it was the coolest thing. Reb Brown looked like Captain America should look. I had a chance to watch both movies again over the summer on the SyFy Channel and still enjoyed them. Yes, Reb Brown can be wooden at times, but I totally buy him as Captain America. It's good fun! Don't take it so seriously and you'll enjoy it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Captain America Lives! October 1, 2011
Format:DVD
For all of you being so overcritical of this 70's version of Captain America, just get over it. Watch it for what it is. It is easy enough to look back 35 years at a show through the eyes of someone in 2011. I enjoyed it back then as a kid and it is enjoyable now. Just like with the 70's Spider-Man, Incredible Hulk and Wonder Woman, they are all dated but that doesn't mean you can't enjoy them thoroughly. I won't disagree that Reb is not a great actor but you know that is the same criticism many have leveled at Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher for the original Star Wars trilogy for years. So either you just sit back and enjoy it, flaws and all or just be miserable. I for one am happy that it is coming out on DVD, now if we can just get the Nicholas Hammond Spider-Man series out on DVD.

These two part television movies were marvel comics attempt to bring Captain America to the small screen. Although not sticking to the original origin from the comics as such. This was a great attempt.
Reb Brown was Captain America Steve Rodgers. He looked like he jumped off the page and became a breathing person. The music was very patriotic sounding the motor cycle was just cool.
Ok the shield was kinda weak espically in the flying and when it hit the bad guy in the back in the second movie. But we got the idea LOL.

Christopher Lee in the second film was just fantastic what an actor.

All in all these are worth having on dvd.

And remember this "The old people are my friends so pal if you ever bother them again I am coming after you." And on a side note we should all feel that way about the elderly.

4.0 out of 5 stars Really Entertaining 70's Superhero Fun! April 3, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I remember the Reb Brown Captain America TV films from when I was a youngster, and I remember them with the same fondness that I do shows like the Bill Bixby/Lou Ferrigno INCREDIBLE HULK and the Nicholas Hammond AMAZING SPIDER-MAN series. These were fun because getting to see some of your favorite characters in real life, but they were also alternately frustrating because they had little or nothing to do with the actual peripheral characters. You weren't going to ever see The Hulk fight Abomination or The Leader; You were never going to see Spider-Man fight The Green Goblin or Doc Ock, and with these two films, you weren't going to see Cap fighting HYDRA or The Red Skull. They fought terrorists and crooks and racketeers, but never an actual comic book villain (although to be fair, Hulk did once team up with Daredevil to fight The Kingpin and he also teamed up with Thor: Incredible Hulk Returns/The Trial of the Incredible Hulk).

Even more frustrating about this collection is that almost everything you know about Steve Rogers is wrong here... except for really small details. Here, Reb Brown, who plays our hero, is already handsome and extra-muscular. He's just left The Marines and intends to just travel "Nomad"-ically around this beautiful country with his artistic skills to try and find his place in the world in his conversion van and his motorcycle. He ends up being contacted by Dr. Simon Mills (played with a lot of sincerity by Len Birman), who is a scientist and doctor who is the head of several different projects and answers only to The President.
