All Tom Hardy Movies Ranked

He whooped on Batman in The Dark Knight Rises, made his way down Fury Road, and pulled off the seemingly impossible feat of turning a movie about a guy behind the wheel of a car into the pulse-pounding drama Locke — and that really doesn’t even scratch the surface of all the interesting career choices that have paid off for Tom Hardy. Whether you’re mainly familiar with blockbuster outings like Inception, favor acclaimed fare like Bronson and The Revenant, or are a hardcore fan who’s been with him since Black Hawk Down, there’s a Hardy movie for everyone. Especially superhero fans, since he’s brought Venom to life, and will be back for this year’s sequel, Let There Be Carnage. Now, we’ve rounded up all Tom Hardy movies and organized them by Tomatometer.

This Means War (2012)

Directed By: McG

#24

Child 44 (2015)
27%

#24
Adjusted Score: 28720%
Critics Consensus: There's a gripping story at the heart of Child 44 and a solid performance from Tom Hardy in the lead, but it all still adds up to a would-be thriller that lacks sufficient thrills.

Directed By: Daniel Espinosa

#23

Venom (2018)
30%

#23

Directed By: Ruben Fleischer

Capone (2020)

#19

Marie Antoinette (2006)
57%

#19
Adjusted Score: 65194%
Critics Consensus: Lavish imagery and a daring soundtrack set this film apart from most period dramas; in fact, style completely takes precedence over plot and character development in Coppola's vision of the doomed queen.
Synopsis: An Austrian teenager (Kirsten Dunst) marries the Dauphin (Jason Schwartzman) of France and becomes that country's queen following the death... [More]
Directed By: Sofia Coppola

#18
Adjusted Score: 72418%

RocknRolla (2008)
60%

Directed By: Guy Ritchie

#16

Legend (2015)
61%

#16
Adjusted Score: 67664%
Critics Consensus: As a gangster biopic, Legend is deeply flawed, but as a showcase for Tom Hardy -- in a dual role, no less -- it just about lives up to its title.
Synopsis: Suave, charming and volatile, Reggie Kray (Tom Hardy) and his unstable twin brother Ronnie start to leave their mark on... [More]
Directed By: Brian Helgeland

#15

Lawless (2012)
66%

#15
Adjusted Score: 75303%
Critics Consensus: Grim, bloody, and utterly flawed, Lawless doesn't quite achieve the epic status it strains for, but it's too beautifully filmed and powerfully acted to dismiss.

Directed By: John Hillcoat

#12

Black Hawk Down (2001)
76%

#12
Adjusted Score: 82790%

Synopsis: The film takes place in 1993 when the U.S. sent special forces into Somalia to destabilize the government and bring... [More]
Directed By: Ridley Scott

#11

London Road (2015)
77%

#11

Directed By: Rufus Norris

#10

The Revenant (2015)
78%
