Tom Hanks, a two-time Academy Award winner, is known for his exceptional performances in movies. However, even he has had his share of failed movies, one of which is the 2017 sci-fi drama The Circle, where he stars alongside Emma Watson.
The movie, based on Dave Eggers’ novel, failed to impress both the audience and critics, making only a little over $20 million at the domestic box office. The Circle holds a rotten status with a 16% critic score on Rotten Tomatoes and a 21% audience score.
Critics described the movie as a “suspenseless thriller” and claimed that it is not “as smart as it wants” to be. Others also said that despite having actors like Emma Watson and Tom Hanks, The Circle is full of “bland performances from talented actors and boring direction from a very talented director.”
It is not uncommon for actors to face flop movies in their career, and Tom Hanks is no exception. However, his fans were left in disbelief after The Circle failed to live up to their expectations.
