Re: Did the fact there was hardly any real Nazis in this film hurt it?
Only problem is, that was the whole point of the character. It should have been about American patriotism (the old fashioned kind), and Nazi / German nationalism. That's the whole ****ing point. It's a period piece. Captain America in the 1940's, was exactly that, and the Red Skull was the embodiment of Nazism and German nationalism.
And how can you be too anti-Nazi?
Turning it into a generic conflict is an impressive feat, but not necessarily a good one.
