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.

#25

Swordfish (2001)
26%

#25
Adjusted Score: 30.291%

Pan (2015)

Directed By: Joe Wright

#23

Chappie (2015)

Directed By: Neill Blomkamp

#22

Butter (2012)
34%

#22
Adjusted Score: 35.712%
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.

Directed By: Jim Field Smith

#21
#21
Adjusted Score: 45.36%
Critics Consensus: Though Hugh Jackman gives his all, he can't help X-Men Origins: Wolverine overcome a cliche-ridden script and familiar narrative.

Directed By: Gavin Hood

#20

Scoop (2006)

Directed By: Woody Allen

#19

Someone Like You (2001)

Directed By: Tony Goldwyn

#18

Kate & Leopold (2001)
50%

#18

Directed By: James Mangold

#17

The Fountain (2006)
52%

#17
Adjusted Score: 58.829%
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: Requiem for a Dream director Darren Aronofsky switches gears from drug-induced urban malaise to abstract science fiction with this time-tripping... [More]
Directed By: Darren Aronofsky

#16

Australia (2008)
55%

#15
#15

Les Misérables (2012)

Directed By: Tom Hooper

#11

The Wolverine (2013)

Eddie The Eagle (2016)
