Default Re: Did the fact there was hardly any real Nazis in this film hurt it?

You clearly don't understand Captain America, the character. It's fine, most people don't. They see the name and the uniform and think he's exactly what you think he is.

Despite his name, he fights for the ideals the country was founded upon, not the country. That's why he's consistently gone against the government in so many stories over all the decades of his existence. The character that went around going ''This is for America!'' was gone a long time ago. He's far more universal than his name implies, and the movie shows you that if you're willing to see it.

So no, that's not the point. You missed the point entirely.

As for too anti-Nazi, I already clearly said why in my post. The negative stigma of Nazi Germany has been a shame for many Germans since the end of the war. It's an uncomfortable topic for many of them. This movie actually SPARES them for once by giving a different antagonist.
