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. And his recent films, Avengers: Endgame and Knives Out, turned out to be his best. And now you can see the rest as look back on Chris Evans movies ranked by Tomatometer!

#31

London (2005)
14%

Directed By: Hunter Richards

#30

Playing It Cool (2014)
14%

#30
Adjusted Score: 14282%
Critics Consensus: Playing It Cool pits Chris Evans and Michelle Monaghan's easy chemistry against a screenplay that tries too hard to be quirky and clever, and the results are disappointingly lukewarm.

#27

Fierce People (2005)
24%

#27
Adjusted Score: 25172%
Critics Consensus: Fierce People's premise of a teenager studying rich people like animals is grating and self-satisfied, and Anton Yelchin's smug performance makes the film even harder to agree with.

Directed By: Griffin Dunne

#26
#26
Adjusted Score: 27279%

Directed By: Mark Mylod

#25

Before We Go (2014)
27%

Directed By: Chris Evans

Directed By: Jodie Markell

#23

Fantastic Four (2005)
28%

#23
Adjusted Score: 36327%

Directed By: Tim Story

#22
#22
Adjusted Score: 33587%
Critics Consensus: NATM has some funny moments, but the movie requires the audience to have familiarity with the movies being spoofed and a tolerance for toilet and sexual humor to be truly effective.

Directed By: Joel Gallen

#20

TMNT (2007)

Directed By: David Ayer

#18
Adjusted Score: 44555%
Critics Consensus: While an improvement on its predecessor, Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer is nevertheless a juvenile, simplistic picture that has little benefit beyond its special effects.

Directed By: Tim Story

#17

The Losers (2010)
48%

#17

Directed By: Sylvain White

#16

Battle for Terra (2007)
48%

#16
Adjusted Score: 51605%

#14

Cellular (2004)
56%

#14
Adjusted Score: 60853%
Critics Consensus: Though it's gimmicky and occasionally feels like a high-end cell phone ad, Cellular is also an energetic and twisty thriller.

Directed By: David R. Ellis

#13

The Iceman (2012)
66%

#13
Adjusted Score: 70934%
Critics Consensus: While it deserved stronger direction and a more fully realized script, Michael Shannon's riveting performance in the title role is more than enough to make The Iceman recommended viewing.

Directed By: Ariel Vromen

#12

Gifted (2017)

Directed By: Marc Webb

#11
#11

#10

Sunshine (2007)
76%
