What Were Hayden Christensen's Best and Worst Performances (Besides AOTC and ROTS)

 (Edited)

Let's see ... first, I have to list what I've seen him in (besides the PT).

Awake

Higher Ground

In the Mouth of Madness

Life as a House

His role in In the Mouth of Madness was less than insignificant, so I'm disregarding it. Of the remaining three, I've only seen Awake recently; the other two I haven't watched since the early '00s.

So -- for now -- I have to tentatively say that Awake is the best with either Higher Ground or Life as a House being the worst; should I watch either of the latter two in the near future, I may revise my evaluation.

Discuss.

 I saw a few minutes of the 2003 remake of The Italian Job the other day. Takers totally ripped off the drop the armored car into the subway tunnel scene.

It's hilarious I've spotted it and Awake in Blu Ray bargain bins recently. Hayden just follows me around now. ;)

Apparently, people who liked that also liked Takers and Virgin Territory, which is a close second to Takers for WHP.*

He was good in Life as a House. definitely better than he was in star wars.

Higher ground was a decent little show, from what i recall. but i was watching that one morefor joe lando (of dr quinn ) than hayden, so i barely remember how he was in that.

Havent seen him in anything else. i dont really seek him out. lol

Embarrassing grammar mistake in title fixed.

The only film I have seen him in was sci-fi  Jumper (2008), and I can't really remember anything about it apart from time jumping around the world.

Best: Shattered Glass

Worst: Really don't know which to pick. I really haven't seen any performance from him that makes this category completely applicable aside from the obvious prequels. And this thread is predicated on exempting the prequels so... Yeah can't really choose. Any other alternative performance of his, that I've seen, sort of blurs together in terms of quality...

He's a B level actor at best, and about the same in everything I've seen him in.

I am what all Jedi fear to become, and what all Sith wish to be. A GOD!

Used to walk into R&W up here in Calgary to look around.

Then I realized I was surrounded by Hayden's face. Scary.

This. It is safe to say it was the low point of his career.

Oh, how about that. Didn't recognise him.
