Who’s Among The One-hit-wonders In Hollywood?

Hayden Christensen

They say that Star Wars: Attack of the Clones and Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith were critical failures. We disagree. While it may not have been given wide acclaim by the film critics, the audience is the true judge of any movie’s performance. A 65% rating on Rotten Tomatoes is already a big deal, how much more than the $656 million worldwide earnings for Attack of the Clones alone?

One reason they cited why these two flopped was the performance by Hayden Christensen, the actor who played Anakin Skywalker and eventually Darth Vader on these two. Was his performance really that despicable? Definitely not. Some say he was a one-star wonder, and to a degree, they are correct because Christensen has not received a similar high-value project after—but we believe that he could still be among the best actors in Hollywood, given a chance. Evidence? He was critically praised for his part as Stephen Glass in Shattered Glass.
