Here are 5 best Jeremy Renner movies:
1) The Hurt Locker
Kathryn Bigelow’s game-changing war film masterpiece remains Jeremy Renner’s top film in the eyes of critics, earning the actor his first Oscar nomination as well as becoming famous for being the first film directed by a woman to win Best Picture, with Bigelow also becoming the first female director to win Best Director.
Renner plays a soldier tasked with bomb disposal duties during the deadliest period of the Iraq War, his nerve-wracking journey redefining the modern war film and providing a completely unique character study.
2) American Hustle
David O. Russell’s con artist dramedy, which was also widely nominated for an Oscar and for which Amy Adams did receive a well-deserved nod, combined real-life events with classic cinematic magic to tremendous success with both critics and audiences at the box office.
Renner portrays a politician who is modelled on one of the central figures in the FBI’s “Abscam” sting operation, which the film dramatises, and who develops into a major source of internal turmoil.
