Jeremy Renner Movies and Series Ranked

Jeremy Renner got his worst movie out of the way early with National Lampoon’s Senior Trip, his feature debut which notched an impressive 0% in 1995. Renner essentially vanished from the big screen for years, notably returning in 2002 as the title Jeffrey in the Dahmer biopic. Obviously, this was going to be one dynamic, unpredictable movie career.

He’s since done well in Certified Fresh efforts like Arrival, The Town, and The Hurt Locker — which got him a Best Actor Oscar nom. Renner was also for a time the guy you apparently hired when you’re trying to figure out how to extend the life of your franchise. Think Bourne Legacy, which he starred in before Matt Damon decided to return to the spy series. Or how about Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, where he was obviously being groomed to take over for Ethan Hunt, until Tom Cruise and Christopher McQuarrie decided to throw the series into overdrive with Rogue Nation and Fallout.

Even his Hawkeye in the Marvel Cinematic Universe has had a strange trajectory, like an arrow curving around in the wind. It started with an odd cameo in Thor, being brainwashed in the first Avengers, and becoming quip-master general in Age of Ultron. And in case you thought he was under-appreciated, his absence from Infinity War led to half the life in the universe whipped to dust. Of course, everything got all wrapped up in Endgame, and he’s getting another victory lap with the Hawkeye series. Now, we rank Renner’s movies and series by Tomatometer.
