John Cena hits rock bottom with latest project despite star-studded private screening hosting former WWE stars

John Cena is a globally recognized icon. He has had an incredibly successful career as a wrestler in WWE, where he achieved the remarkable feat of being a 16-time WWE Champion.

Although he is an active wrestler with such fame in the WWE Universe, his Hollywood career is currently facing significant challenges. Despite having a special screening dedicated to pro wrestlers, his latest movie project received negative reviews from both fans and critics. It is arguably the worst-rated film of his whole career.

John Cena’s “Freelance” receives ugly reviews

Famous WWE superstar and Hollywood actor John Cena has recently starred in a movie named Freelance, directed by Pierre Morel, who also directed Taken, and has garnered the worst reviews of his career, with a rare 0% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

The Peacemaker star has appeared in several action movies throughout his career. While some of his films, such as The Marine and Bumblebee, have been well-received by both audiences and critics alike, others, like Playing with Fire and The Suicide Squad, were less successful. But this particular one can be considered his worst-rated movie. While the premise of the movie is filled with thrilling adventure, the movie has been slammed by critics for its poor script, cheap CGI, bad jokes, and lack of chemistry between the stars.

Some of the notable reviews are given below:

Robert Kojder (from Flickering Myth): A head-scratching disaster that doesn’t so much as mix genres and tones but rather puzzlingly cycles through them with no apparent reason or thematic purpose, desperately hoping something starts to click. [Rating:1/5]

Roger Moore (from Movie Nation): “Very dumb” barely covers how silly and violent this half-assed Banana Republic riff turns out to be. [Rating:1/4]

Jeffery M. Anderson (from Common Sense Media): This lifeless, generic, confusing, and unfunny mess is so glaringly out of touch with reality that it makes your head hurt. [Rating:1/5]

Mike McGranaghan (from Aisle Seat): Despite the likeable lead actors, Freelance is an instantly forgettable movie. [Rating:1.5/4]

Brain Tallerico (from There’s an oppressive nothingness to “Freelance.” No romance. No comedy. No action.
