Peter Jackson’s Movies Ranked As Per Their Average Metacritic And Rotten Tomatoes Scores

Peter Jackson is known for films such as Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit trilogy, King Kong, and others. His filmography goes way beyond realistic cinema and catalysts pretty much everything from raunchy thrillers to horror entities.

Originated from New Zealand, director Peter Jackson got his recognition post drafting and bringing The Lord of the Rings trilogy on screen. However, it is quite absurd to believe that the person who has directed some of the classics of all time have had sourced some of the wildest genres films as well in past. With that being said, here is a list of Peter Jackson’s movies ranked as per their average Metacritic and Rotten Tomatoes scores –

The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies

Average score: 59
Average score: 59

The viewers were pretty much fatigued with the Hobbit movies by the time The Battle of the Five Armies landed the theaters. While the charm of J.R.R.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

Average score: 61
Average score: 61

Peter Jackson’s return with An Unexpected Journey had quite some expectations attached to it. But apparently, when the film showed up on the big screen, the critics were not as happy as they were supposed to be. Perhaps that is why the film received a kind of a mixed review and a Metacritic score of 58% and a Rotten Tomatoes score of 64%. Moreover, the film was released with a 48fps and in a 3-dimensional frame that pretty much distracted the viewers from even enjoying the best parts of the narration. Some high-profile critics such as A.O. Scott remarked the film as “over-scaled.”

The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug

Average score: 70

As a result, it was one of the biggest cliffhangers delivered on screen and it was Peter Jackson who catalyzed the task.

King Kong

Average Score: 82.2

After The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogy, Jackson was quite free to draft whatever he wanted and he showed up with the remake of 1933’s classic movie, King Kong.
