There’s no voice quite like Morgan Freeman’s. His soothing yet authoritative tones might be one of his most celebrated traits, but the Academy Award-winning actor has earned acclaim for performances in dozens of films over nearly six decades. With such a prolific career, however, it’s no surprise that he’s also made some mistakes along the way. You might have your opinion on his best work, but based on the critical response, these are the worst Morgan Freeman movies of all time.

To highlight the lowest-rated films from Freeman’s filmography, we made sure to focus on the bottom of the barrel by only listing movies that got under 50 percent on Rotten Tomatoes on the site’s ranked list of every Morgan Freeman movie, two of which earned a dismal 0 percent score. You might have enjoyed some of these movies, but they earned Freeman the worst reviews of his career. Read on to see if any of your favorites are at the bottom, and for more bad movies from big stars, check out The Worst Tom Hanks Movie of All Time, According to Critics.
