CATFA felt like a de-fanged attempt at a pulp cliffhanger serial. The thing that Lucas and Spielberg had going for them was an actual sense of wonder, of fun, of roguish and likeable heroes involved in big, brawling and sprawling set pieces. CATFA was just about a nice guy who got superpowers and fast-forwarded through a strange and dull side-pocket of WWII.
