Charlie Hunnam - 43: his best movie roles

"Man of Action" - this is the name of the British actor for his ability to embody strong, determined characters on the screen. The audience watches him with bated breath. In our review of his most striking work.

"Waldo" (2021)

Charlie Waldo (Charlie Hunnam) is a former star of the Los Angeles Police Department who has left the service and lives in simplicity and seclusion deep in the woods. Alistair Pinch (Mel Gibson) is an eccentric actor who spends his days drunk on the set of his TV show. When Pinch's wife is found dead, he becomes the prime suspect. And Waldo is forced to get back to work to investigate what happened. The case leads the private detective into dealing with gangsters, Hollywood producers and kindergarten teachers, all to clear Pinch's name... or confirm his guilt. Critics praised Hunnam's laid-back performance, whose high-energy style fits perfectly into the somewhat frivolous story. The investigative journey and colorful characters mattered more than the destination in this detective story.

Jungleland (2019)

When a stunning loss in the ring leaves Lyon (Jack O'Connell) and his manager/brother Stan (Charlie Hunnam) indebted to a local crime boss, they take a risk by signing up for an underground boxing tournament. What will you do for a better life and blood relationship?! Critics called Hunnam particularly impressive in this road movie, appreciating how he allows the character to drift and grow on waves of affection from his brother. He exploits Lyon, but only because it is difficult for him to understand where his brother ends and he himself begins.

"Moth" (2017)

The epic story of Henry "Moth" Charrière, a safecracker from the Parisian underground. He is charged with murder and sentenced to life in a notorious penal colony in French Guinea. Passionate about regaining his freedom, Moth forms an unlikely alliance with counterfeiter Louis Degas (Rami Malek), who agrees to fund the escape in exchange for protection. According to critics, Hunnam in the role of Sharrière, although he gave everything 100% physically, did not show a very strong performance in terms of emotions.

"King Arthur's Sword" (2017)

After killing his brother, young Arthur's power-hungry uncle Vortigern (Jude Law) gains control of the crown. Deprived of his birthright, a young prince (Charlie Hunnam) goes through a difficult journey away from the palace, not knowing who he really is. When fate forces him to pull the sword Excalibur from the stone, Arthur accepts his true destiny - the legendary warrior and leader of the nation. For this film, many reproached the director Guy Ritchie for his excessive passion for clip technologies, however, in their opinion, the situation was “saved” by the actors with their immersion in the role. Charlie Hunnam got the bulk of the accolades.

"The Lost City of Z" (2016)

At the dawn of the 20th century British explorer Percy Fossett (Charlie Hunnam) travels to the Amazon Valley, where he discovers evidence of a previously unknown, advanced civilization. Despite the distrust of the scientific community, which considers the local population savages, the determined Fossett, supported by his wife, son and adjutant, travels through the dangerous jungle in an attempt to prove his case. Critics regard Hunnam's work as the pinnacle of his career, imagining no one else as the brave scientist. Director James Gray used the best acting qualities of his main star: energy, determination, spirituality, attention to detail and the ability to masterfully hold the viewer's attention.
