All Jude Law Movies Ranked by Tomatometer

Jude Law made his breakthrough splash in The Talented Mr. Ripley, though anyone who had been following his early career through Gattaca, Music From Another Room, and Wilde already knew what he was capable of by the time the world saw him in the Anthony Minghella thriller. Not too long after that, Law would be working with the likes of Steven Spielberg (he was the robot Gigolo Joe in A.I. Artificial Intelligence), taking lead roles (Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow, Alfie), and showing off his dark side as nasty villains (Road to Perdition).

And sometimes it seems Law is at his best in large ensemble casts: Just check out Cold Mountain, I Heart Huckabees, Contagion, The Grand Budapest Hotel, or even Captain Marvel for proof. His latest film was Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore.. See where it places as we rank all Jude Law movies by Tomatometer!


Spy (2015)

Directed By: Paul Feig

Directed By: Martin Scorsese

Directed By: Wes Anderson

Directed By: Sean Durkin


The Aviator (2004)

Directed By: Martin Scorsese

Directed By: Steven Soderbergh

Adjusted Score: 88770%

Directed By: Sam Mendes

Directed By: Kevin Macdonald

Directed By: Steven Spielberg

Adjusted Score: 80874%

Directed By: David Cronenberg

Adjusted Score: 78406%
Critics Consensus: Although it softens the nasty edges of its source material, Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events is a gothic visual treat, and it features a hilariously manic turn from Jim Carrey as the evil Count Olaf.

Directed By: Brad Silberling


Wilde (1997)

Adjusted Score: 72973%

Directed By: Kerry Conran


Sherlock Holmes (2009)

Adjusted Score: 79823%
Critics Consensus: Guy Ritchie's directorial style might not be quite the best fit for an update on the legendary detective, but Sherlock Holmes benefits from the elementary appeal of a strong performance by Robert Downey, Jr.

Directed By: Guy Ritchie

Directed By: Terry Gilliam

Directed By: Joe Wright

Directed By: Brady Corbet

Adjusted Score: 68421%

Directed By: Guy Ritchie


Dom Hemingway (2013)

Directed By: Richard Shepard

Adjusted Score: 58373%

Directed By: Jean-Jacques Annaud

Directed By: Michael Grandage


The Holiday (2006)

Adjusted Score: 56673%

Directed By: Nancy Meyers

Adjusted Score: 51191%

Synopsis: In this adaptation of John Berendt's book, a young journalist, John Kelso (John Cusack), travels to Savannah, Ga., to cover... [More]
Directed By: Clint Eastwood

Directed By: David Yates


Alfie (2004)

Adjusted Score: 54084%

Directed By: Charles Shyer

Adjusted Score: 50217%

Directed By: Kenneth Branagh

Directed By: Guy Ritchie

Adjusted Score: 40881%

Directed By: Reed Morano


Repo Men (2010)

Adjusted Score: 27483%
Critics Consensus: Repo Men has an intriguing premise, as well as a likable pair of leads, but they're wasted on a rote screenplay, indifferent direction, and mind-numbing gore.

Directed By: Miguel Sapochnik

Directed By: Fernando Meirelles

Adjusted Score: 17723%
