Brilliant adaptation as classic cliffhanger chapter!
Black and white rendering is not overly crisp, music syncs nicely to action.
Roger Ramjet did this a few years ago with a Raiders Of The Lost Ark serial.
This is absolutely stellar, however!
Would that the entire film could be given this treatment. Or at least add on some of the Avenger sections without the superhero manboy worship.
My only issue is that the narrative leaves me breathlessly waiting.
Hey, and where’s that retro Star Wars thingy, Rogue?
Rogue is a visual master, and his expert knowledge of all things retro astounds me. Having previewed one of is in-the-works edits (which is the single greatest silent film I have ever seen--yeah), I was excited for this and it does not disappoint. Told in the form of those classic movie serials of old, Cap America is a way better movie for it. Others have elaborated on the ingenious ending so I wont, but suffice to say its brilliant. A fantastic effort as always, and really should be a companion piece to the half-as-entertaining original. Great work!
I grew up on these old serials, they would rerun them in the UK a lot in the early 90s, so seeing a throwback to them just got me grinning from ear to ear. It makes use of all the classic tropes of these old shorts, and the ending is probably the most unique twist on the old Cap legend and ideally fits the period from which it came from. This is a sound little short and a beutiful valentine to a tradition that the Marvel Cinematic Universe sort of tries to emulate on a larger scale
