    I don't get why only Hayden Christensen was hated because of his acting when practically the entire cast acted poorly

      Because he doesn't deliver a single believable line the whole movie and any scene that is supposed to be romantic you can't feel anything but either laughter or cringe.
      I literally can't watch aotc or rots because of him
      He's a pretty cool guy though, just sucks at acting

      Acting is a collaborative work. It's not really possible for the best actors to be much better than the worst actors they have to do a scene with. So if Christensen was the worst, or one of the worst people on set, people will say he dragged the rest of the cast down to around his level, and blame him for it. It's actaully the director and producer's responsibilty, but audiences don't really understand things like that.

      What's so poor exactly? Hayden is great in ROTS along with most of the cast.

      He was basically unknown before this and the lead character. So natalie portman, ewan mcgregor, christopher lee etc survived it because they had been good before. He just had bad luck and this is all he was known for at the time. He's actually pretty damn good in other movies but he hardly gets any roles.

      Both because he was the lead and because he didn't do anything else of note and there was nothing to compare his performance in AOTC and ROTS to, whereas Natalie Portman and most of the other cast members had been in plenty of other prominent movies where they gave good performances and would go on to give good performances in later movies.

        He's a fighter and they often have that military bearing and keep it cool and to the point. Hearing Apache pilots on the radio they sounded like truck drivers just casually going down the highway to deliver their cargo when they go on attack runs.

      Doesn't take a rocket surgeon to recognize bad acting and directing like this, Batman the dark knight and other cringeworthy performances. Could we do it better? Probably not but we don't hundred million dollar budgets either.

    Hershlag is very much a director's actor - someone who will do exactly what the director says. Lucas is an autist who doesn't really care about performances as long as they deliver his clunky dialogue clearly. The OT cast often said that working with Lucas was a pain because he didn't give them any direction beyond "that was good, now do it faster and more intense." If you compare Hershlag in other movies where she gives decent performances - Closer, Black Swan, Jackie - you notice that those directors are the ones who have a more traditional directing approach in that they work with their actors and give them extensive notes to develop the characters. Meanwhile Lucas while directing is probably thinking more about where his CGI character is going to be walking/flying than about how the actual real actors are performing.

        Hershlag gets roles because she fricks anyone necessary for a role.
        Christensen got the role because Lucan wanted a nordic chad to frick the israeliteess.
