Alternate Versions

There are two different opening sequences: One begins with a recap of _Captain America_ (1979) and uses the comics-book-cover logo (seen on the video box art) as the title without the "II" or subtitle. The other omits the recap and uses a more generic font for the title, spelling "Captain America II" on three lines in red, white and blue (one color for each line). See more »

Not much of an improvement
2 September 2017 | by Wizard-8See all my reviews

This is a sequel to the made for television movie "Captain America", which was released later in the same year as the first movie, and things haven't improved that much. True, this sequel has the advantage that it doesn't have to explain the origin of its hero, and it has a bit more action than the first movie, but that's about it when it comes to improvements. Like the first movie, it moves really slowly for the most part, and in the few moments where there is some action, it feels very sluggish and not the least bit exciting. It also has a cheap feeling like the first movie, with obvious shooting on studio back lots and other inexpensive locations. Sometimes it's stupid enough to provoke a few unintended laughs, but for the most part it's tiresome inanity. If you are still curious about the movie because Christopher Lee is in it, be aware that it's obvious that Lee had his limited number of scenes knocked off in two days of shooting at the most.
