7 Essential Appearances by Aaron Taylor-Johnson, from "Kick-Ass" to "Age of Ultron"

The status of Mr Aaron Taylor-Johnson is good! In David Leitch’s action thriller Bullet Train from last summer, he was one of the scene-stealers. He will play another superhero in Sony’s Kraven the Hunter later this year. In addition, his brief cameo in The King’s Men hinted that he would play a significant role in the franchise. Even though these titles alone could suggest that Taylor-Johnson is drawn to action roles, he has been developing varied filmography since an early age. He has collaborated with some of the top filmmakers in the business, such as Christopher Nolan, Joe Wright, Oliver Stone, and J.C. Chandor. Because Taylor-Johnson is only 32 and has already established himself as a capable franchise player, it will be interesting to see where he goes next.

Below are Aaron Taylor Johnson‘s 8 best performances

John Lennon in Nowhere Boy (2010)

Naturally, there is great excitement and skepticism around any movie about The Beatles. However, nowhere. Boy, a biographical film by Sam Taylor-Johnson, offers a novel perspective on John Lennon’s life by emphasizing his high school years as a coming-of-age tale in the John Hughes tradition rather than his famous music. Young Lennon was influenced by Elvis Presley and teamed up with Paul McCartney to form his first band (Thomas Brodie-Sangster). Taylor-Johnson does a fantastic job of capturing Lennon’s perplexity as he struggles with his erratic home life and his perplexed sexuality. It isn’t easy to replicate Lennon’s stage charm, but Taylor-Johnson makes the concert sequences joyful.

Dave Lizewski in Kick-Ass (2010)

Despite numerous efforts, Kick-Ass is still one of the best instances of a “subversive” superhero origin narrative from the following ten years. While there are many references in Matthew Vaughn’s filthy R-rated action thriller that comic book fans will enjoy, it nevertheless has a genuine feeling of heroism. As Dave Lizewski, a more nerdy version of Peter Parker who does not need to be a superhero, Taylor-Johnson is ideal. While the crude humor is frequently hilarious, Kick-Ass demonstrates the repercussions that Lizewski experiences for believing he is exempt from obligations. Although Kick-Ass 2 wasn’t as good as the original, Taylor-Johnson still gave a solid performance.

Lieutenant Ford Brody in Godzilla (2014)

The four movies released so far have all great monster fights, but spectators have had to get beyond the grating human melodrama. The modern “Monsterverse” hasn’t done an excellent job with its human characters. Once they awaken Godzilla, the scientist Dr Joe Brody (Bryan Cranston) loses his wife, and when he continues to study the kaiju monsters, Brody is labeled insane. Ford (Taylor-Johnson), Brody’s Navy SEAL son, is compelled to defend his father, and the two grow closer during the voyage. 

Despite the material’s lackluster writing, Cranston and Taylor-chemistry Johnson’s improves it. But, unfortunately, Taylor-Johnson won’t get another chance to play the part.

Avengers: Age of Ultron in as Pietro Maximoff in (2015)

Aaron Taylor-Johnson deserves more recognition for his work in Avengers: Age of Ultron, especially because Quicksilver (Evan Peters) from X-Men: Days of Future Past took his place in WandaVision’s version of the movie. However, he intended to do something other than steal the show like Peters did. Instead, taylor-Johnson depicts the true fury that Pietro Maximoff feels against Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), whose weaponry was the cause of his parent’s deaths. 

Sergeant Allen Isaac in The Wall (2017)

The Wall, a military thriller by Doug Liman, stands apart in the genre because it is very low on spectacle. The troops being held down by enemy fire in the middle of a fighting zone are Staff Sergeant Shane Matthews (John Cena) and Sergeant Allen Isaac (Taylor-Johnson). Unfortunately, both males are inoperable because of their severe injuries. However, the mysterious sniper’s voice (Laith Nakli) teases them over the radio and reveals a startling secret about Isaac’s history.

Lord James Douglas in Outlaw King (2018)

Taylor-Johnson has delivered several excellent performances in action movies, but he’s never given a routine where he was so physically invested as he did in Outlaw King. The Scottish revolt is continued in David Mackenzie’s historical epic where Braveheart left off. Robert the Bruce (Chris Pine) organizes a small group of supporters who liberate their homeland from the British crown through the sieges of individual castles. One of the first men to swear loyalty to the “Outlaw King” is Lord James Douglas (Taylor-Johnson). Douglas’ devotion to Bruce is undeniable, but he also merely relishes the excitement of battle. He enjoys the carnage and adds a strange sense of comedy that improves the picture.

Tangerine in Bullet Train

In his vivid portrayal as the British assassin Tangerine, Taylor-Johnson manages to steal the show in an ensemble cast that features everyone from Brad Pitt to Bad Bunny. While keeping track of every assassin on the titular Bullet Train, Tangerine and Lemon’s (Brian Tyree Henry) can be challenging, eccentric camaraderie makes their sequences go by quickly. Of course, the two have their fair share of comebacks, but their connection takes an unexpectedly poignant turn when the third act comes around.
