"Where did Orlando Bloom go wrong?"


          

He had major roles in 2 of the biggest franchises in motion picture history. He was the hottest man in Hollywood at one point. You would think he'd be money at the bank like Steve Gutenberg in the 80s. He should at least be getting steady work on a Gerard Butler or Ewan McGregor level.

Which probably isn't fair, since there's a lot of things wrong with that movie besides his performance, but he didn't help matters.

It was him stepping out his lane and trying something different as a leading man and falling on his face.

I mean that film was suppose to blow up for him and get Dunst to that Natelie Portman level. Instead nobody saw it and most ppl probably won't remember it, but to be fair the film most movies around that time nobody saw.

1. It played more as a series of scenes rather than a cohesive film. It was like Crowe recognized all of the "moments" and played them just like that-- like moments, not as a narrative.

2. Bloom simply doesn't have the charisma or the ability to draw the audience in with his emotion (or even the insinuation of deeper emotion) in order to make the film work. It's a role Tom Cruise could have KILLED in the Jerry Maguire era. It needed some starpower charm. Dunst did her best, but I wasn't sold on her as the ideal free spirit love interest either... she was better than Bloom though.

i mean, how many Cameron Crowey moments can you cram into one fucking movie?

they even turned shopping for an urn into a music video

i'm a pretty big fan too but i literally had to avoid going near his movies for over a year after watching Elizabethtown.

horrible movie

I mean, Jeff Goldblum was in Jurassic Park and Independence Day.

Bloom's mix of pretty, boyish looks with mediocre ability means he'll never crack the A-list.

As for Bloom, I just think he got typecast by playing too many roles that weren't set in the present time. He's just not versatile enough. He needs a good movie that's set in the present that suits his skills. He needs to pick the right roles. The potential is there, its just that he can't play just any role.
