In Chris Pratt’s early days, he was known as the lazy and lovable Andy Dwyer on Parks and Rec. Today, he is known for leading an array of coveted roles with his wit, charm, and star-power.
Pratt has led several films, including a spaceship romance, a Jurassic Park sequel, a baseball drama, and a superhero smash hit. While his roles are vast and varied, we’re here to look at only his best performances. To do that, we’ll be using the star-rating system on IMDb.
The popular entertainment website has assigned every single Chris Pratt movie a star-rating. This ranking is based on the votes of registered users, on a scale of 1 to 10. This is what we’ll be using to see how all of Pratt’s movies stack up.
With that said, it’s time to get ready for an adventure. Here is how all of Chris Pratt’ feature films rank on IMDb.
10 Passengers (7.0)
This 2016 sci-fi romance had Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence blasting off to space as part of a group set to colonize on a planet 60 light-years from earth. The problem?
