Leonardo DiCaprio has long since established himself as one of his generation’s greatest talents, a remarkable achievement when you consider that his first Academy Award nomination was almost 30 years ago in the award-winning drama What’s Eating Gilbert Grape.
After Titanic elevated him to worldwide celebrity status a quarter-century ago, DiCaprio has been consistently at the top of the A-list, and his ever increasing selectiveness over his projects may be seen as a guarantee of quality.
However, Netflix’s polarizing disaster comedy Don’t Look Up has proven to be his worst-reviewed work in more than a decade, according to Rotten Tomatoes ratings. DiCaprio was on an excellent hot streak before the divisive satire’s release, having won acclaim for movies like Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, The Revenant, and The Wolf of Wall Street.
Don’t Look Up is currently sitting on an RT rating of 55%, his lowest since Baz Luhrmann’s 2013 adaptation of The Great Gatsby landed a 48%.
That still puts him at just four Rotten releases in the 21st century so far, with Ridley Scott’s Body of Lies and Clint Eastwood’s J. Edgar being the only two to fall below 60%, yet again emphasizing his consistency.
