I felt pretty bad about Hayden Christian however I respect his role as Anikan.
Radle Grebdron (1 day 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.

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

Rebekah Avigayle (2 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.

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.

It was the lines in starwars that ruined it. The terrible script. Hayden might be an amazing actor but what could he do with that script

looper- posts another video of why hollywood won't cast another actor. Me- looks at Imdb, sees Christensen has been in well over a dozen movies since star wars and several movies after this video was released Nice try looper... gfy

This show's critics know S..., Few could have done a better Anakin. His performance was great. Totaly set up the old sequels from the position of his character. I actually think his performance toward the end of Revenge of the Sith is one of the better in the whole trilogy.

Poor Hayden
TheJoshayla (5 months ago)
It’s funny to me how the majority of critics and fans hated Hayden for his performance and basically destroyed his acting career. Then a few years later AFTER the sequels came out and now Hayden is everyone’s hero? Hayden’s performance was ALWAYS amazing. It’s just sad to me that it had to take until the next franchise failed for people to realize..

, well that sucks I thought he did really good in Star Wars love it Keep Your Head Up my man you star in another movie I'll be watching
Natalie Panaro Stack (5 months ago)
DiCaprio and Jonathan Jackson were the last 2 before Hayden. I wonder if DiCaprio is thankful he wasn't cast. At that time he had done titanic was his last film and I remember he kinda disappeared until 2000 with the beach which wasn't a hit . But as time got on and he hooked up with Scorsese a director u do want to be blessed to work with many times he replaced the aging denero as Martin's leading man and what a payoff. Wolf of wall street he was amazing

I love Hayden Christensen he’s a good actor but people don’t see that cause he had a bad dialogue in Star Wars hes a underrated actor he deserves so much better

damn right who needs hollywood. They both got money, made money and till this day money we still be coming into the banks no matter how bad star wars 2 or 3 were, hayden is still getting profit out of it
Lightning (5 months ago)
I thought Hayden did a great job as Anakin (maybe not so much in Attack of the Clones, but certainly in Revenge of the Sith). Not his fault the scripting and directing of those movies was terrible
OG-SPANKYOURFACE -1776 (5 months ago)
Yeah right I'm sure Hayden Christensen left Hollywood to get away from all the disgusting pedophilers like James Gunn the creator of Rick and Morty and the rest of the sick fuck that talk about molesting children! Hayden Christensen did the right thing the buy a new pair of shoes and get the hell out of there and away from the pedophilers
LA WhispersASMR (5 months ago)
Actually liked awake a lot. He played that role well. And jumper was not bad please
Tyz Tyz (5 months ago)
they think, could they make good money casting someone but don't think should they make a good movie casting soneone... he's too bad, no one'll go to see him, think they... maybe they better think, if their screenplay is good enough? several years in a row hollywood makes kind of shitty poo... sequels prequels not even bother to hold close to the main story... what can one say, if even the Han Solo was glad to scrap away from another sequel, just kill me, asked he producers ))))

Some proof on why he's a good actor would be the faces he makes when getting burned, the faces he makes when deciding between helping Windu or Palpatine, killing the separatists, etc. He's a good actor, and he delivered a powerful performance as Anakin in 3, but he was hindered by bad directing. It isn't even so much bad dialogue as it is the direction. Lucas has been known for this. If you can recall, Mark Hamill was pretty cheesy in the first movie, and he even asked Lucas why he was directed that way. It's Lucas' vision to make the Skywalkers act cheesy and whiny, but he went on to modify the dramatic performance in 3 and make it odd. Some of his lines were performed well, but it really is the director, if influential enough, who makes all the difference. You can be a fantastic actor and still be bullied into giving a cheesy performance if you're dealing with one of the most powerful, influential, and inspiring filmmakers of all time. The hate on Hayden for this was baseless.

I hated him Star Wars, but loved him in Life As A House. I think Star Wars didn't give him much to work with.... although Ewan and Natalie, they did do well in Star Wars.

I agree I think he did a good job in Star Wars and he was smart to get out of Hollywood because all it does is just drag you down and there is too much negativity.

Critics complaining about the acting in SW films, nothing new. These movies are never going to be Oscar contenders, but who wouldn't give just about anything to be even an extra in the SW Galaxy. Hayden has much to be proud of....he played Vader for crying out loud!!!
