THE most absurd Captain America review yet

I plan to see this tonight. I was reading some reviews on imdb.com today and came across this "gem" below (keep in mind this movie is incredibly faithful to the comic that debuted before the entry of the U.S. into WWII).

This is a copy of a 1987 Hindi film, 22 July 2011

I am amazed at the reception this movie gets. All you need to do is watch the Hindi movie "Mr. India" (1987) to understand why I have given this a rating of 2. It simply is a frame-for-frame copy. I haven't seen plagiarism so blatant in a Hollywood movie.

Even simple scenes like showing the doctor the bathroom, the dogs in the car, the experiments for a US army Super Soldier program, the cheesy background green screen in most scenes, are straight lifts. All Joe Johnson (Honey, I Shrunk the Kids) and his team has done is to hire translators instead of screenplay writers.

Welcome Joe Johnston to the ever-burgeoning group of 'inspired' directors, whose poster-boy is Mr Sanjay Gupta(Oldb..and reservoir...ahem..Zinda and Kaante fame) Mr America is a direct frame-by-frame copy of 'Mr India', a sweet and fun movie that could only come from India. Sentimental, silly and melodramatic, it also handles the superheroics amzaingly well-- way better than something like Mr America. When will filmmakers start giving credit to the original movie makers? Its one thing to use a story as a framework and foundation, but here even the screenplay is copied. The sad part is people who haven't seen 'Mr. India' hail this movie. Shame on the director and producer of 'Mr America' for not acknowledging the source of this movie.

Mr America beats everything what people like Joe Johnston and Chris Evans have done before. I truly hate them because of this monstrously bad piece of s***. However, watch the Hindi movie. Highly recommended.


A rip-off of... "Mr. India"? Sounds to me like India ripped off the backstory to a 40's superhero from Marvel comics.

Who else plans to see this, or has already?

Still legal in 16 states. It's happy. It's fun. It's Happy Fun Car.
Do not taunt Happy Fun Car.
