Blast From the Past (1999) – 58%
Without a doubt, the concept behind the 1999 comedy Blast from the Past is a fascinating one. A young man who has spent his entire life in a bomb shelter learns one day that the world has not been destroyed by nuclear war as he had believed. Along with the novelty of the idea, the film received criticism for the uneven humour of the screenplay and performances.
Crash (2004) – 74%
The 2004 Lions Gate film Crash, which won the Best Picture Oscar that year, weaves together several storylines concerning race, class, family, and gender in Los Angeles. Brendan Fraser finds himself in the thick of things as a member of an A-list ensemble cast in this unique and compelling drama.
Gods and Monsters (1998) – 96%
Brendan Fraser finds himself in a talent competition with Ian McKellen in the magnificent 1997 character study Gods and Monsters, which centre on an elderly retired director played by McKellen and the friendship/obsession he establishes with his young gardener. The two actors’ performances have received the most of the praise for this film, which holds Fraser’s highest Rotten Tomatoes score (96%).
Journey to the Center of the Earth (2008) – 61%
Fraser.Journey to the Centre of the Earth, a family-friendly adventure film by Warner Bros., is appealing because it combines modern effects with a vintage atmosphere from the 1950s. Taking advantage of the 3-D movie boom in the middle of the 2000s, the movie would make a reasonable amount of money at the box office for what it was. The presence of Fraser in the movie doesn’t really make or break it because the part could have been performed by any actor—and was in fact taken by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson in the 2012 sequel.
No Sudden Move (2021) – 92%
Prior to his award-winning performances, Fraser played in Stephen Soderbergh’s crime drama No Sudden Move in 2021. Soderbergh’s use of an incredible cast in the movie is celebrated, thanks to both his direction and his original storyline.
School Ties (1992) – 60%
Matt Damon and Brendan Fraser both play very inexperienced characters in the movie School Ties. The focus of the film is on Fraser’s portrayal of David Greene, who, out of worry for his friends’ antisemitism, struggles to fit in at a prestigious prep school. Despite the positive reviews for Fraser and his co-stars’ performances, several reviewers felt that the film’s overt message detracted from the experience.
Still Breathing (1997) – 62%
Brendan Fraser, who portrays a Texas street artist in the romantic comedy Still Breathing from 1997, has one of the greatest moustaches in movie history. The film has a 61% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes despite only having a few reviews, all of which are good.
The Mummy (1999) – 60%
Next is the 1999 adventure film The Mummy, which is unfairly underestimated. The movie developed its own genre and was packed with action, humour, and aesthetically stunning vistas and set pieces, so it seemed like Brendan Fraser was well on his way to becoming the next big action star. The film’s primary shortcomings were its simplicity and the critics’ inability to recognise it for the summer blockbuster that it was intended to be (and the splendour still attached to it).
The Quiet American (2002) – 87%
The primary actors in the movie version of Graham Greene’s book The Quiet American are Brendan Fraser and Michael Caine. The Quiet American, which has one of Fraser’s best dramatic performances, is among the better dramas of the early 2000s due to the actors’ commitment to the material and superior performances.
The Whale (2022) – 64%
The exceptional acting by the cast, especially Brendan Fraser’s Oscar-winning performance, more than makes up for The Whale’s shortcomings. The Darren Aronofsky-directed movie gives Fraser his first noteworthy acting role in years. Even if it isn’t the actor’s highest rated movie on Rotten Tomatoes, it is without a doubt his best acting effort to date.
