Captain America Movies Best to Worse

I thought it would be fun to rank the Captain America movies in order of quality

1.      Captain America: The First Avenger (2011) (by a huge margin; Chris Evans is completely convincing as a hero someone who didn't have any sort of childhood trauma but just wanted to fight bullies because it was the right thing to do)
2.      Captain America serial (1944) (Dick Purcell’s is the least faithful Cap depiction but the serial works on its own level, which isn't entirely true of the below)
3.      Captain America (1990) (Matt Salinger is okay as Cap and it does have nice bits with Sharon, the movie’s version of Peggy Carter; it’s just a bit off)
4.      Captain America (1979/TV) (time passer at best; Reb Brown does okay with lackluster material in both TV movies)
5.      Captain America II: Death Too Soon (1979/TV) (while the costume and action were better than the first TV movie it was also campier)
