That still wouldn't have been enough Nazi involvement, for my tastes.
Really, as much as I enjoy Cap, it really was indicative of the movies big fail; it played things soft. As good as Evans was, and has phenomenal as the art direction and the directing was, the script itself was a bit of a softball.
