All Hugh Jackman Movies Ranked

Like Robert Downey Jr. and Tony Stark, or Patrick Stewart and fellow X-Men favorite Professor Xavier, it’s near impossible to separate Hugh Jackman from Wolverine, the comic book character he helped immortalize on the big screen, so let’s just get that right out of the way. Jackman will forever be associated with the self-healing mutant with the adamantium claws, and now that he’s officially done playing the character, good luck to whoever attempts to fill his shoes next.

Outside of the X-Men universe, though, Jackman has also proven to be a multi-faceted leading man, starring in romantic comedies (Kate & Leopold, Scoop), sweeping adventures (Australia, Pan), family films (Happy Feet, Real Steel), musicals (Les Misérables, The Greatest Showman), mysteries (The Prestige, Prisoners), and just about everything in between. It’s no wonder some of the biggest directors working today, from Christopher Nolan to Darren Aronofsky to Denis Villeneuve, have sought his talents for their films. To celebrate his eclectic career, we’ve pulled together all Hugh Jackman movies and ranked them by Tomatometer, so have a look and see where your favorites land.


Movie 43 (2013)

Adjusted Score: 7127%
Critics Consensus: A star-studded turkey, Movie 43 is loaded with gleefully offensive and often scatological gags, but it's largely bereft of laughs.

Deception (2008)

Adjusted Score: 14712%

Directed By: Stephen Sommers


Swordfish (2001)

Adjusted Score: 30337%
Critics Consensus: Swordfish is big on explosions, but critics dislike how it skimps on plot and logic. Also, the sight of a person typing at a computer just isn't that interesting.
Synopsis: There exists a world within our world. A world beneath what we call cyberspace. A world protected by firewalls, passwords... [More]
Directed By: Dominic Sena


Pan (2015)

Adjusted Score: 34239%
Critics Consensus: Pan finds a few bursts of magic in its prequel treatment of classic characters, though not enough to offset the rushed plot and shrill, CGI-fueled action.

Directed By: Joe Wright


Chappie (2015)

Adjusted Score: 41383%
Critics Consensus: Chappie boasts more of the big ideas and visual panache that director Neill Blomkamp has become known for -- and, sadly, more of the narrative shortcomings.
Synopsis: In the near future, a mechanized police force patrols the streets and deals with lawbreakers -- but now, the people... [More]
Directed By: Neill Blomkamp


Butter (2011)

Adjusted Score: 35327%
Critics Consensus: Despite its talented cast and a few funny moments, Butter's satirical aims are largely undone by a lack of subtlety and air of smugness.
Synopsis: For many years, Laura Pickler (Jennifer Garner) has relished the prestige and admiration afforded her as the wife of Iowa's... [More]
Directed By: Jim Field Smith

Adjusted Score: 48343%
Critics Consensus: Though Hugh Jackman gives his all, he can't help X-Men Origins: Wolverine overcome a cliche-ridden script and familiar narrative.
Synopsis: Seeking solace from his dark past, Logan (Hugh Jackman), better known as Wolverine, seems to have found love and contentment... [More]
Directed By: Gavin Hood


Reminiscence (2021)

Adjusted Score: 46277%
Critics Consensus: Although Reminiscence isn't lacking narrative ambition, its uncertain blend of sci-fi action and noir thriller mostly provokes memories of better films.
Synopsis: Nick Bannister (Hugh Jackman), a private investigator of the mind, navigates the darkly alluring world of the past by helping... [More]
Directed By: Lisa Joy


Scoop (2006)

Adjusted Score: 46235%

Synopsis: Even in death, British reporter Joe Strombel (Ian McShane) is dedicated to completing his final piece on London's notorious Tarot... [More]
Directed By: Woody Allen


Someone Like You (2001)

Adjusted Score: 46465%
Critics Consensus: A light and predictable, if somewhat shallow, romantic comedy that's easy to sit through because of the charming leads.
Synopsis: Jane Goodale (Ashley Judd) has everything going for her. She's a producer on a popular daytime talk show, and is... [More]
Directed By: Tony Goldwyn


Kate & Leopold (2001)

Adjusted Score: 56102%
Critics Consensus: Though Jackman charms, Kate and Leopold is bland and predictable, and the time travel scenario lacks inner logic.
Synopsis: Kate McKay (Meg Ryan) is a modern day executive, a 21st century woman driven to succeed in the corporate world.... [More]
Directed By: James Mangold


The Fountain (2006)

Adjusted Score: 61025%
Critics Consensus: The Fountain -- a movie about metaphysics, universal patterns, Biblical symbolism, and boundless love spread across one thousand years -- is visually rich but suffers from its own unfocused ambitions.
Synopsis: A man (Hugh Jackman) travels through time on a quest for immortality and to save the woman (Rachel Weisz) he... [More]
Directed By: Darren Aronofsky


Australia (2008)

Adjusted Score: 63413%
Critics Consensus: Built on lavish vistas and impeccable production, Australia is unfortunately burdened with thinly drawn characters and a lack of originality.
Synopsis: With the globe on the brink of World War II, Lady Sarah Ashley (Nicole Kidman) travels from Britain to Australia... [More]
Directed By: Baz Luhrmann

Adjusted Score: 67638%
Critics Consensus: X-Men: The Last Stand provides plenty of mutant action for fans of the franchise, even if it does so at the expense of its predecessors' deeper character moments.
Synopsis: The discovery of a cure for mutations leads to a turning point for Mutants (Hugh Jackman, Halle Berry, Famke Janssen,... [More]
Directed By: Brett Ratner

Adjusted Score: 76282%
Critics Consensus: The Greatest Showman tries hard to dazzle the audience with a Barnum-style sense of wonder -- but at the expense of its complex subject's far more intriguing real-life story.
Synopsis: Growing up in the early 1800s, P.T. Barnum displays a natural talent for publicity and promotion, selling lottery tickets by... [More]
Directed By: Michael Gracey


The Front Runner (2018)

Adjusted Score: 71951%
Critics Consensus: The Front Runner exhumes the wreckage of a political campaign with well-acted wit, even if it neglects to truly analyze the issues it raises.

Directed By: Jason Reitman


Real Steel (2011)

Directed By: Shawn Levy


Les Misérables (2012)

Adjusted Score: 80616%
Critics Consensus: Impeccably mounted but occasionally bombastic, Les Misérables largely succeeds thanks to bravura performances from its distinguished cast.
Synopsis: After 19 years as a prisoner, Jean Valjean (Hugh Jackman) is freed by Javert (Russell Crowe), the officer in charge... [More]
Directed By: Tom Hooper


The Wolverine (2013)

Adjusted Score: 82056%
Critics Consensus: Although its final act succumbs to the usual cartoonish antics, The Wolverine is one superhero movie that manages to stay true to the comics while keeping casual viewers entertained.

Directed By: James Mangold

Directed By: David Bowers, Sam Fell

Adjusted Score: 80877%
Critics Consensus: A sort of Avengers for the elementary school set, Rise of the Guardians is wonderfully animated and briskly paced, but it's only so-so in the storytelling department.

Directed By: Peter Ramsey

Directed By: Christopher Nolan


Eddie the Eagle (2016)

Adjusted Score: 94067%

Directed By: Dexter Fletcher
