<i>Puncture</i>: Captain America, Attorney-At-Law?

Filmed before his starring role in Captain America: The First Avenger, but getting a belated theatrical release after that summer blockbuster raised his profile, the legal drama Puncture gives Chris Evans a chance to prove he can play more than just 'roided-up action heroes or the dreamy guy in rom-coms like The Nanny Diaries and next week's What's Your Number. For his part, Evans seizes the opportunity and runs with it, making the most of the role of flamboyant lawyer, Mike Weiss, whose brilliance in court is matched only by his bad behavior outside of it. Never one to turn down a line of cocaine or casual sex with random strangers (a hobby that costs him his marriage), Mike is a walking disaster area, but the chaos that is his personal life only serves to fuel his sharp legal mind. That's really the only reason his friend and business partner Paul Danziger (Mark Kassen, who also co-directed the film with his brother, Adam Kassen) hasn't dropped him from their struggling firm -- he may be a deeply flawed human being, but Mike is simply too good a lawyer to kick to curb.
