We Can Be Heroes II would work.

It's set up for WWII, as well as Fantasy games, IIRC.

An oldie, but a goodie. 

Not sure where you can get it, but it used to be available as a PDF.

In my view, "Cinematic" means a low chance to hit/kill the important "characters" in your game(s), while they go about the business of whatever mission they have to accomplish.  The main "characters" can go about defeating hordes of enemy troops, just like in the movies.

With these rules, there are leaders and sidekicks. 

I think in order to actually kill the main characters/leaders, you have to have an equally powerful character from the opposition do that.  They can be captured, and/or wounded though, by lesser troops.

Worth checking out.

We use Pulp Alley and have oodles of fun with those. They are based on the comic book adventures  ;)
