These are 5 movies of Chris Evans proving that he has been a talented actor before Captain America. Let’s look at his best roles when he was so young.
1. Not Another Teen Movie
If you’re too familiar and somewhat bored with the image of a “super cool” superhero carrying a battle shield, Not Another Teen Movie is an exciting option for you. Different from the usual style, Chris Evans in the movie would bring laughter from campus scenes.
Set in high school John Hughes, Jake (Chris Evans) accidentally bragged to his friends that he had the ability to make every ordinary girl become special. And what happened also, he participated in a bet with his friend to turn Janey (Chyler Leigh) who was famously ugly into a beautiful girl in the upcoming concert. From here, everything between the two that happened at the high school began to be a humorous situation. In particular, this was also the first main role of Chris Evans.
2. The Perfect Score
The Perfect Score was one of the first movies to pioneer in school fraud. The content may sound serious, but the essence of humor was throughout the movie. This was also the movie starring “Black Widow” Scarlett Johansson in a group of 6 with Chris. Besides, the movie was also the product of cooperation between the US and German film industries.
3. Fantastic Four 2005 và Fanstatic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer
The two parts of director Tim Story created a milestone for Chris’ career. This movie was the first step for him to embark on superhero roles later. With compelling content and unique character building, the two parts quickly received compliments from fans around the world. It also got a nomination for an MTV Movie Award at the time.
Fantastic Four talked about a group of 4 people. Each member had superpowers. Reed Richard (Ioan Gruffudd) could stretch his body. Susan Storm (Jessica Alba) was capable of invisibility. Johnny Storm (Chris Evans) could use fire as a powerful tool. And Ben Grim (Michael Chiklis) had potential strength under the cover of monsters. Each person supported mutually and joined in combat in battles.
4. What’s Your Number?
In addition to action roles in superhero movies, rom-com comedies are his strength. The movie told the story of Ally Darling (Anna Faris) and her former love stories. Looking back at the long list of ex-boyfriends who’d slept with, she wondered if this was the true love of her life. Chris Evans in the movie was one of them. Ignoring all the humorous details of the movie, Chris’s acting and hot nude scenes also played an important role in the movie.
Snowpiercer was a work getting many compliments by critics. It was made by Korean director Bong Joon Ho. Unlike the previous movies that Chris Evans had participated in, Snowpiercer was a movie with dark colors and exposed the hierarchical truths in human society.
In the movie, he played the role of Curtis. He was a lucky person who was on the ship Snowpiercer. The reason for being called lucky was because the cold was threatening the life of all humanity, except those on this ship. The train became a miniature society with many roles and ranks. It clearly showed the nature of each person. And Curtis was one of those ingredients that were always engulfed in the gloom.
