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!


London (2006)

Adjusted Score: 14.406%
Critics Consensus: Hampered by pretension and undermined by unlikable characters, London proves that the novelty of seeing actors play against type isn't enough to rescue a deeply flawed film.

Directed By: Hunter Richards


Playing It Cool (2015)

Adjusted Score: 14.181%
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.

Directed By: Justin Reardon

Adjusted Score: 18.608%
Critics Consensus: Neither funny nor suspenseful, this heist / teen flick also fails to explore its potentially socially relevant premise.

Directed By: Brian Robbins


Push (2009)

Adjusted Score: 26.717%

Directed By: Paul McGuigan


Fierce People (2005)

Adjusted Score: 24.737%
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.
Synopsis: Trapped in his mother's Lower East Side apartment, 16-year-old Finn wants nothing more than to escape New York and spend... [More]
Directed By: Griffin Dunne

Adjusted Score: 26.156%

Synopsis: Anna Faris is Ally Darling, who after reading a magazine article that leads her to believe she's going to be... [More]
Directed By: Mark Mylod


Before We Go (2015)

Adjusted Score: 27.265%
Critics Consensus: Chris Evans' directorial debut is modest to a fault, with a threadbare story and minimal style leaving his and Alice Eve's likable performances adrift in New York City with nowhere to go.
Synopsis: BEFORE WE GO, the directorial debut of Chris Evans, follows the journey of two strangers stuck in New York City... [More]
Directed By: Chris Evans

Adjusted Score: 27.511%

Directed By: Jodie Markell


Fantastic Four (2005)

Adjusted Score: 34.261%
Critics Consensus: Marred by goofy attempts at wit, subpar acting, and bland storytelling, Fantastic Four is a mediocre attempt to bring Marvel's oldest hero team to the big screen.
Synopsis: Marvel's first family of comic superheroes takes the world by storm as the longest running comic book series in history... [More]
Directed By: Tim Story

Adjusted Score: 31.817%
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.
Synopsis: Former MTV executive Joel Gallen makes his feature directorial debut with this broad spoof of the popular teen comedy genre,... [More]
Directed By: Joel Gallen

Adjusted Score: 38.066%
Critics Consensus: The Nanny Diaries' miscast lead and unrealistic, one-dimensional characters make this class satire far less effective than it should've been.
Synopsis: A recent college graduate with few job prospects is hired to care for a precocious four-year-old boy in this satirical... [More]


TMNT (2007)

Adjusted Score: 37.567%

Synopsis: The stars have aligned in an ominous sign, and as a legion of malevolent monsters descends upon New York City... [More]
Directed By: Kevin Munroe


Street Kings (2008)

Adjusted Score: 41.497%

Synopsis: In the wake of the L.A. riots, an LAPD vice detective who always went above and beyond the call of... [More]
Directed By: David Ayer

Adjusted Score: 42.563%
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


The Losers (2010)

Adjusted Score: 52.819%
Critics Consensus: The Losers is loud, fast, and unrelentingly violent -- but it's also funny and well-acted, which will make all the difference for some action fans.
Synopsis: Director Sylvain White adapts the Vertigo comic about a team of mercenaries who wage war on the CIA after they're... [More]
Directed By: Sylvain White


Battle For Terra (2009)

Adjusted Score: 50.575%
Critics Consensus: Despite its earnest aspirations to be a thought-provoking sci-fi alternative, Battle for Terra lacks both a cohesive story and polished visuals, and fails to resonate.

Directed By: Aristomenis Tsirbas


Puncture (2011)

Adjusted Score: 52.505%

Directed By: Mark Kassen, Adam Kassen


Cellular (2004)

Adjusted Score: 58.966%
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


The Iceman (2013)

Adjusted Score: 70.525%
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.
Synopsis: Inspired by actual events, The Iceman follows notorious contract killer Richard Kuklinski (Academy Award (R) nominee Michael Shannon) from his... [More]
Directed By: Ariel Vromen


Gifted (2017)

Adjusted Score: 80.147%
Critics Consensus: Gifted isn't quite as bright as its pint-sized protagonist, but a charming cast wrings respectably engaging drama out of a fairly predictable premise.
Synopsis: Frank Adler (Chris Evans) is a single man raising a child prodigy - his spirited young niece Mary (Mckenna Grace)... [More]
Directed By: Marc Webb

Adjusted Score: 90.73%

Directed By: Joss Whedon


Sunshine (2007)

Directed By: Danny Boyle

Directed By: Joe Johnston

Adjusted Score: 90.456%

Directed By: Edgar Wright
