Mark Wahlberg is a visionary! Before anyone could fathom it: he saw his rapping career coming to an end, took the initiative into acting, and laughed all-the-way-to-the-bank.

After starring in 57+ films in an illustrious acting-career, the A-list actor currently demands anywhere between $20–30 million per movie and even managed to become 2017’s Highest Paid Actor.

But, you’re not here to discover how financially well-off Marky Mark has become — post rap. You want to know which of his movies are terrible enough to elicit a cult-following.

For those answers, I’ve turned to the Rotten Tomatoes website for rankings based on critic’s scores. *Apologies to those who prefer audience score rankings — but they weren’t available.

And that, as they say, is that!

10 Worst Mark Wahlberg Movies (Based on Critic’s Consensus and Scores)

10. Daddy’s Home (2015): 31% Score

“Critics Consensus: Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg have proven comedic chemistry, but Daddy’s Home suffers from a dearth of genuinely funny ideas — and lacks enough guts or imagination to explore the satirical possibilities of its premise.” — Rotten Tomatoes

9. Mojave (2016): 31% Score

“Critics Consensus: Mojave has no shortage of talent on either side of the camera; unfortunately, it amounts to little more than a frustrating missed opportunity.” — Rotten Tomatoes

8. Broken City (2013): 28% Score

“Critics Consensus: Broken City’s thinly sketched, formulaic script offers meager rewards for all but the least demanding noir aficionados.” — Rotten Tomatoes

7. Mile 22 (2018): 23% Score

“Critics Consensus: Mile 22 lets the bullets fly — and not much else — in a thrill-deficient action thriller whose title proves sadly fitting for a film that feels close to a marathon endurance test.” — Rotten Tomatoes
