The Worst Anthony Hopkins Movie of All Time, According to Critics

The most recent Best Actor Oscar winner has made plenty of not-so-great films.

It was certainly a surprise when Anthony Hopkins picked up another Oscar at the Academy Awards on April 25, but his Best Actor win for The Father is only the latest accomplishment in a storied career. At 83, Hopkins is the oldest ever Oscar winner for acting, but he's earned accolades and consistent popularity over the past several decades. Amid all the triumphs, however, there were bound to be some lows. So, what are the worst Anthony Hopkins movies ever made?

To find out, we consulted Rotten Tomatoes' ranked list of every Anthony Hopkins film, then focused on the "rotten" entries—that is, the films that earned less than 60 percent in critical approval. As it turns out, Hopkins has starred in his fair share of duds over the years. Read on to find out which movies made the unfortunate cut, and for more bad movies featuring Oscar winners, check out The Worst Tom Hanks Movies of All Time, According to Critics.
