The Ten Most Underrated Acting Performances In Film
The Contenders: Page 2XW
Do you see? Ralph Fiennes was terrifying in Red Dragon, so scary in fact he even rivals-if not-surpasses his co-star Anthony Hopkins portrayal as Hannibal Lecter. Ralph Fiennes was so good he gave us a glimpse into the last strand of humanity of a man turned monster (or man dragon. ) Ralph Fiennes has been robbed at the acadamy awards on more than one occasion and he deserved a win for his portrayal as Francis Dollarhyde, and the fact that it will not be remembered in years to come is what makes this performance very underrated
It was her final film role, and her only chance to really shine as an actress. And while she got top billing (unlike her co-star Eli Wallach, who valiantly outshone the rest yet hardly got any), her looks are frequently capitalized on. Even her character gets constant disrespect from the other men in the film.
But she really does show that she can act in a dramatic role. I just wish she got the respect she deserved. - SourNote2014
A great villain transformation performed very well by Aaron Eckhart. Overshadowed by Heath Ledger's joker performance.
Just... Wow. I never heard of this film. I never heard of this actress. But when I started watching the movie, I was awestruck as to how this performance didn't win the Academy Award. The character isn't even that well written, but you barely notice because she is so phenomenally powerful - a performance for the ages.
One of the best performance of all time
Everybody's talking of Meryl Streep ( so overrated as an actress ) about this movie but it's Amy Adams who's the real talent in that movie. She really surpasses Meryl Streep in her acting. Amy Adams plays her character more subtle and believable ( even the real Julie said it in a interview! ) than Meryl Streep who only raise her voice in a high pitch ( and naturally everybody's thinks that's genius!? ). Amy Adams should have won a oscar for her performance.
I agree totally! Amy Adams is the real talent and eyecandy in this movie. Unbelievable that Meryl Streep did get a nomination for this movie and Amy Adams nothing.
