All Oscar Isaac Movies Ranked by Tomatometer

Before he became Llewyn Davis, actor Oscar Isaac was the guy you saw constantly bringing it in secondary roles in high-profile projects, each career move taking him that much closer to the one perfect role that would make him a star. He worked twice with Ridley Scott with Body of Lies and Robin Hood, got to show off his sweet dance moves in Sucker Punch, shot a few guns in The Bourne Legacy, and brought uncommon empathy to his doomed ex-con character in Drive.

And as great as the Llewyn Davis character is on paper, being written by the Coen brothers after all, it was Isaac’s wry, sad, funny, and even mysterious performance that brought the folk singer to cinematic life. 2015 was A Most Violent Year for Isaac, but also a very good one, as that movie released, along with The Two Faces of January, word-of-mouth sci-fi smash Ex Machina, and the juggernaut that was Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens.

Recently, he was in The Card Counter and two Addams Family movies. Now, we’re taking a walk back now with ranking all of Oscar Isaac’s movies by Tomatometer!

#33

W.E. (2011)
12%

#33
Adjusted Score: 16734%

Directed By: Madonna

#32

Life Itself (2018)
13%

#32
Adjusted Score: 21823%

Directed By: Dan Fogelman

Directed By: Dean Wright

Sucker Punch (2011)
22%

#30
Adjusted Score: 30478%

#28

Suburbicon (2017)
28%

Directed By: George Clooney

#27

Mojave (2015)

Directed By: Catherine Hardwicke

#24

Therese (2013)

Directed By: Charlie Stratton

#23

Robin Hood (2010)
43%

#23

#21
#21
Adjusted Score: 67945%

Directed By: Bryan Singer

#20

#18

Agora (2009)
54%

Directed By: Alejandro Amenábar

#17

10 Years (2011)

Directed By: Jamie Linden

#14

Operation Finale (2018)
61%

Directed By: Chris Weitz

#13

Triple Frontier (2019)
