What a fucking disrespectful approach, Looper, holy fuck
The Smiler (1 day ago)
What else was he supposed to do. He is actually perfect showing his trial as anikan. Trying to be the best and is angry when he can't. Plus it is supposed to show his undying love for Padme.
SKOL NATION (1 day ago)
I dont get it? How was mark hamil incredible? Pretty corny acting in that too... Its the stars wars curse. Fans should be supportive. He did a good job. If he returns for episode 9 all you haters better not cheer. I loved hayden in both films. Watch the video on how he potrayed anakin perfect.

Revenge of the Sith one of the best movies of 2005.. so I don’t see how he was bad in that movie??Or maybe you’re just biased who like to use rotten tomatoes as a source that like me using Wikipedia.

He did a great job as Anakin. The way he transmits feelings and the confision of a scared young extremely powerful person is amazing. He dide exactly what he had to do.
Self Ruling Tactics (23 days ago)
Wtf, he was the perfect anakin! I can never ever see anyone else playing anakin after he played it. No way.
Junaki Begum (18 days ago)
Self Ruling Tactics what about Matt Lanter
QuadrupleA (24 days ago)
What...? How could you do this?.... This is outrageous... It’s unfair... How can you be one of the most characters in Star Wars itself, and not get into Hollywood. That’s insulting.

Jumper did good in the box office idiot and is considered a hit
Brek Martin (29 days ago)
Revenge of the Sith made me appreciate the first two movies. I was totally bored in the cinema watching TPM, and it grew on me later.

Fuck Rotten Tomatoes. A bunch of weirdoes giving out ratings based on their discretion. Jumper was an awesome movie
Christopher Hager (1 month ago)
I don't care what people say. He did great as Anakin, and loved Jumper. He's got a cool farm, and an awesome family that loves him. Good for him! He's living the life Anakin should had.
Fruitty Tutti (1 month ago)
It was kind of Lucas' fault for his reputation. I mean, if you make Samuel L. Jackson and Ian McDiarmid sound bad with his acting, its the directors fault
Pedro Coimbra (1 month ago)
"rotten tomatoes"... You mean the same rotten tomatoes that gave the Orville some 18% score while the public gave 93%? Or, the ones that gave the new "feminist, woke, progressive" Doctor Who a 94% while the public gave only some 13%? (More or less the same with Start Trek Discovery) *That* rotten tomatoes? *"Rotten critics"* is more accurate...
Pedro Coimbra (1 month ago)
He's coming back in a new movie, some conspiracy, near apocalypse thing. Only saw the trailer but I think he's done a good job.

He is amazing as Anakin!
OpenMindedMetalElitist (1 month ago)
He wasn't bad as Anakin because he can't act, he was bad because of bad writing. No one can make the sand line or "from my point of view the Jedi are evil" sound good. Also I had no clue that he was an Oscar contender at one point.

He was the perfect guy to acting Anakin in my opinion.

It’s outrageous! It’s unfair!
O B (2 months ago)
U dumb ass you criticize his job and think he must take care of his farm instead of acting but do u think it’s easy to have pressure every single day and be the best ! That’s what makes him more Human than other actors
This is sounds similar to anakin story, too much pressure to be the chosen one
Arix (2 months ago)
wtf he was a perfect anakin

He did a good job as Anakin. A lot of hits. And he actually recently got cast for Little Paris. Get Gud.

Anakin was a sensitive because he had to keep everything inside him .he also was a kid with problems so yeah Hayden did a great job performing him .
Eide Lahe (2 months ago)
He was great in the 'Factory Girl' 💙
KeepCalmAndKeepReeing (2 months ago)
But his performance as anakin is so fucking good,the new movies look ass compared to revenge of the sith,he was badass.
I actually liked the Prequels. I feel like all the snarks that love the original star wars ruined it for everyone. Hayden isn't a bad actor, if anything you could blame the script. Besides, he did better then what disney is doing now.. I am praying KH3 is good.

The Star Wars prequels are a cinematographic masterpiece when compared with Disney's horrendous woke movies.

I felt pretty bad about Hayden Christian however I respect his role as Anikan.
Radle Grebdron (2 months ago)
Hey, 'Awake' was actually not that bad. Also buying land and raising a daughter with his wife far away from Hollywood celebrity life sounds like a good life to me.

Natalie Portman was also awful in these movies and yet she proved she could really act. Blame the directing and script for the crappy acting.

thought he was great in Star Wars but 3 was better than 2 but I think Adam Driver will have a better career than Hayden

I feel bad for the dude. He does not deserve all the hate he gets. You people always bitch about the prequels and then love the Clone Wars TV Show, but if it wasn’t for the prequels, then the Clone Wars show wouldn’t have ever happened. I just really do not understand why people think the prequels are so bad. It tells the story of Darth Vader for fucks sake smh

Hayden Christensen would be an Awesome Spider Man...the last Spider Man actor OMG ugly and in my opinion bad actor...
Gigi Gigi (4 months ago)
He is an Excellent Actor, Gorgeous, Charismatic, Did I say Gorgeous??? Oh Yeah!!!, anyways Hollywood is Crazy not having him in many movies...I Love Him...I LOVE ALL HIS MOVIES, HE IS AN EXCELLENT ACTOR, BECAUSE HE CAN "ACT", many other actors and actresses are garbage and still getting parts why is that???
RainyLane (4 months ago)
among the worst?? Awake was such a good movie. Y'all are fucking ridiculous. And rotten tomato isnt shit.
Rebekah Avigayle (4 months ago)
He was actually believable and authentic. Hollywood squares were jealous of a true star. At least he was a real person with a soul not a slave to the matrix.

Camon guys...The entire production team should take responsibility of lousy star wars episodes. Not just Hayden alone... esp the director Mr Lucas.

I liked his roles in SW and jumper. Can't see where the hate is coming from unless it's from poor writing or directing

George wrote bad scripts for all the later films I didn’t even bother with the last where Han gets killed by his son. Time to rest this series.

Without Hayden, Anakin would not be Anakin at all. Especially that Hayden did his excellent job as Anakin/Vader in Revenge of the Sith. And may the Force be with him. So I don't care what critics say about him.
Well That's Filmy (6 months ago)
He is the Imran Khan of Hollywood 😝

Hayden did a good job! It was Lucas’ terrible writing and directing and his awful post production edits that ruined what could have been an amazing performance.
