All Chris Evans Movies Ranked

Even if Chris Evans hadn’t played Captain America in the MCU over the last eight years, there’s all kind of evidence he’s some kind of secret comic book nerd. He played the ice-cool Human Torch in two Fantastic Four movies. He was the comic relief in The Losers. He played a jerk-ass ex-boyfriend of Ramona Flowers in Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. Casey Jones was his jam in the animated TMNT movie. And he was on the world’s longest train ride ever in Snowpiercer. And just what do all those movies have in common? Yep: They’re all adaptations of comic panel to the big screen.

When he’s not helping sequential art books go back into print, Evans’ other notable jobs include being in one of the few actually funny parody movies of this century (Not Another Teen Movie), reigniting the sun (Sunshine), and testing the waters of his dream career as a director (Before We Go).

But honestly, playing Steve Rogers, the dorky hot guy in the MCU (as opposed to Mark Ruffalo, who plays the hot dork), takes up so much time, it’s amazing Evans gets anything else done. With Endgame out of the way and Rian Johnson’s Knives Out lined up for this year, we’re looking back on the best Chris Evans movies (and the worst!) ranked by Tomatometer!

London (2006)

Playing It Cool (2015)

Fierce People (2005)
24%

#26
Adjusted Score: 24.694%

Directed By: Tim Story

#21
#21
Adjusted Score: 31.8%

Directed By: Joel Gallen

#20

TMNT (2007)

#17
Adjusted Score: 42.344%

Directed By: Tim Story

#16

The Losers (2010)
48%

#16
Adjusted Score: 52.508%

Battle For Terra (2009)

Cellular (2004)

Directed By: David R. Ellis

#12

The Iceman (2013)
67%

#12
