All Andy Serkis Movies Ranked

Emperor. Hobbit. Ape. Andy.

The one man Serkis has been enthralling and frightening audiences worldwide for decades, often without us ever seeing him. Covered in performance-capturing technology and then draped in CGI, Andy Serkis has given physicality and life to the snarling Emperor Snoke in the new Star Wars movies, intelligence and empathy to chimp Caesar in the Planet of the Apes reboots, and shown destitution and malfeasance with his legendary Gollum in The Lord of the Rings. When Serkis is performing au naturale, so to speak, it’s often as psychos in tough street dramas and thrillers filmed in his native England. He also notably mucks up superhero plans as Ulysses Klaue in Avengers and Black Panther films.

Now, my precious, with Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle coming out on Netflix (he directed the film and plays Baloo), read on to see every Andy Serkis movie with a Tomatometer ranked!
