6 Anya Taylor-Joy Movies That Are A Waste Of Time To Watch

While Anya Taylor-Joy has an appreciated acting talent, these films show that not every project can get positive reception from the audiences or critics. Besides, they show us that a strong cast alone cannot always compensate for a lacking script or execution.

While Anya Taylor-Joy has gained acclaim for several of her standout performances, her filmography also includes titles that have not fared as well with audiences and critics. Here, we give you six of her films that, despite her talent, might not be worth your viewing time.

6. ‘Glass’ – IMDb: 6.6

Despite being the conclusion of M. Night Shyamalan’s Unbreakable trilogy, ‘Glass‘ received lukewarm responses from critics and audiences. It was criticized for its disappointing storyline, particularly in the third act. While it grossed $247 million worldwide against a $20 million budget, it failed to impress with a 37% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and an IMDb rating of 6.6. The movie’s handling of its superhuman themes and narrative conclusion was deemed underwhelming, marking a less-than-satisfactory end to an otherwise intriguing series.

5. ‘Radioactive’ – IMDb: 6.3

Radioactive‘ (2019), a biographical drama about Marie Curie, stars Rosamund Pike alongside Taylor-Joy. Though Pike’s performance was praised, the film was criticized for its flawed script and storytelling choices. With a Rotten Tomatoes approval rating of 63% and an IMDb rating of 6.3, it received mixed reviews. The film also faced controversy for altering historical events and misrepresenting characters, which undermined its credibility as a biographical source.

4. ‘Morgan’ – IMDb: 5.8

In ‘Morgan‘ (2016), a science fiction thriller, Taylor-Joy’s film debut was overshadowed by the movie’s overall reception. It garnered an unimpressive 37% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and an IMDb rating of 5.8. Critics pointed out the film’s failure to fully develop its premise, settling for a typical sci-fi thriller lacking in original ideas. Its box office performance was also underwhelming, earning only $8.8 million worldwide.

3. ‘The New Mutants’ – IMDb: 5.3

A part of the X-Men series, this 2020 superhero horror film was not the send-off the franchise hoped for. ‘The New Mutants‘ received mixed-to-negative reviews, with a 36% Rotten Tomatoes rating and an IMDb rating of 5.3. Its $49 million global gross fell short of its $67–80 million budget. Critics noted the film’s lack of a distinct personality and coherent storyline, which contributed to its underperformance.

2. ‘Playmobil: The Movie’ – IMDb: 4.9

An animated adventure based on the Playmobil toy brand, this 2019 film was widely criticized as a feature-length advertisement. ‘Playmobil: The Movie‘ was panned for its storytelling, characters, and worldbuilding, earning a mere 18% on Rotten Tomatoes and an IMDb rating of 4.9. The film was also a commercial failure, grossing only $16.3 million against a $40–75 million budget.

1. ‘Here Are the Young Men’ – IMDb: 4.7

In this 2020 drama, Taylor-Joy’s performance could not elevate the film’s overall reception. With a 38% Rotten Tomatoes rating and an IMDb rating of 4.7, ‘Here Are the Young Men‘ was criticized for its predictable and derivative storyline. Although it featured strong acting, the film struggled to offer an engaging narrative.
