Taking a leap from the modeling industry to the screen is, no doubt, one of the best decisions Angie Harmon has made in her entire life. Her emergence into the acting world is credited as the main reason she was able to secure a spot under the spotlight. Despite investing her time and energy in the modeling world for a couple of years, this beautiful lady only found fame after she switched her interest to acting in the year 1995. Angie Harmon movies are not much in number but her acting skills in these projects can never go unnoticed.
Angie has had more roles in television projects than in films. In fact, she owes her rise to prominence to the TV series Baywatch Nights and Law & Order, wherein she portrayed A.D.A. Abbie Carmichael. The actress’s recurring role in Law & Order has won her four nominations for the Screen Actors Guild Awards between 1999-2002, however, the TV program is not the only series where she featured in more than one episode. Voltron: Legendary Defender (2017–2018), Rizzoli & Isles (2010-2016), Women’s Murder Club (2007-2008), Baywatch Nights (1995-1997), and C-16: FBI (1997-1998) are some other projects where she appeared in multiple episodes. Remarkably, Rizzoli & Isles has fetched her two awards from three nominations – People’s Choice Awards (2015) and Gracie Awards (2012).
Talking about her film career, the actress has lent her expertise to films which include Lawn Dogs Pam, Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker, Gordon (voice), Good Advice, Agent Cody Banks, The Deal, Fun with Dick and Jane, End Game, Glass House: The Good Mother Eve Goode Video, and Seraphim Falls. Hermon made her first film appearance in 1997 in the fantasy drama-film Lawn Dogs as Pam while her last film credit is Seraphim Falls, wherein she starred as Rose.
In addition to acting and modeling, Angie has also done some voice works in the industry. Born Angela Michelle Harmon, in Highland Park, Texas, on August 10, 1972, the 177 centimeters tall actress shares three daughters with her ex-husband, a former NFL player. Below is a list of Angie Harmon movies ranked from best to worst.
List of Angie Harmon Movies: Best To Worst Filmography
Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker (2000)
Starring , , , and , Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker is a crime/sci-fi directed by Curt Geda, Toshihiko Masuda, and
Shojiro Nishimi. Inspired by writer Bill Finger and artist Bob Kanes fictional superhero character Batman, this film project is considered the best project on the list of Angie Hamon movies. She voiced the character Commissioner Barbara Gordon in the 73 minutes long film and her performance was nothing short of amazing.
Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker received critical acclaim and for so many reasons, it deserves the impressive scores and success it recorded. From its animation to voice acting, and story, the makers of the film met the expectations of critics and viewers as well. Although Angie hasn’t won any award for her voice role, the film won two awards from five nominations – Annie Awards for Best Animated Home Entertainment Production and DVD Exclusive Award for Best Animated Character Performance (won by Mark Hamill). A critical success, the film received a decent rating on film review sites, including Rotten Tomatoes (88% approval score), however, the exact amount that was used in its making and the particular figure it made at the box office are still unclear.
Lawn Dogs (1997)
Produced by Duncan Kenworthy and written by Naomi Wallace, this fantasy-drama film was created using the folktale of Baba Yaga as its chief plot device. Lawn Dogs is a British project although its shooting took place in the U.S, precisely in Danville and Louisville, in Kentucky. The project revolves around a lonely and precocious 10-year-old girl Devon Stockard and her friendship with a landscape worker in Camelot Gardens. Her parents Morton and Clare had warned her about their gated community known as Camelot Gardens but she disobeyed them while selling cookies for a charity event.
Widely considered as one of her best films, Harmon was cast as Pam in the movie. The film itself was a huge critical success having several film awards at European film festivals. To be precise, the project has won seven awards from 10 nominations and holds a commendable approval rating on film review sites. Lawn Dogs was made with an estimated budget of $8,000,000 but it only returned a disappointing $106,404 at the box office.
Seraphim Falls (2007)
Also starring , , Michael Wincott, Xander Berkeley, Tom Noonan, and Kevin J. O’Connor, this is a Revisionist Western film that deeply covers civil-rated subject matters like war, human survival, and violence. Angie portrayed the fictional character Rose in the thriller. Following its release, Seraphim Falls was welcomed with mixed reviews among critics, with Rotten Tomatoes handing it an average rating of 55% and 54% from the audience.
End Game (2006)
While delivering a speech at an event, the President (Jack Scalia) is hit by a bullet fired by a man holding a camera while Cuba Gooding Jr. (Alex Thomas, his main bodyguard) is grazed by the same bullet. Unfortunately, Scalia dies at the hospital after Alex and other secret service officials might have killed the shooter. Angie was cast as investigative journalist Kate Crawford, who began searching for answers as regards to the president’s assassination.
Following its release, End Game came under heavy criticism for numerous shortcomings which were quite obvious from the beginning of the story. The director of the film Andy Cheng and the ensemble cast were not spared by critics either. Cheng, according to them, did a terrible job while the cast failed to meet expectations. At the time of writing, the audience is yet to review this film which could be a clear indication of lack of interest in the project.
Commercially, the film was produced with approximately $5 million. It, however, made back only $1.2 million in video sales and rentals. It is one of the worst Hollywood works on the list of Angie Harmon movies.
Fun with Dick and Jane (2005)
Though a commercial success (earned $202 million at the box office from a budget of $100 million), this film failed to truly portray the exact pictures its producers actually had in mind. How do we know? Fun with Dick and Jane is a remake of the 1997 film of the same title but in the long run, it turned out that critics and the audience didn’t favor its production; hence, the very poor ratings. The production of this film was marred by several rewrites and reshoots for two weeks, according to Wiki. Despite the presence of , , , and, the project failed to appeal to most critics and viewers in general.
The Deal (2005)
The Deal is yet another disappointing political thriller film starring Harmon. Directed by Harvey Kahn, the film also featured Robert Loggia, Selma Blair, Colm Feore, and Christian Slater. The 91 minutes long movie failed to impress critics and the audience as well, having bagged a humiliating 18% rating by the latter. On Rotten Tomatoes, The Deal was awarded 21% rating approval and 5/10 on IMDb.
Agent Cody Banks (2003)
Agent Cody Banks is a thriller action film that follows a high-school student called Cody Banks. Cody, portrayed by , is also a CIA agent whose only concern was to make it through adolescence successfully and become an adult. When the young man is not busy with his academic work, he is tirelessly working on a case and spying on Natalie Connors (his classmate) in order to establish a close relationship with her dad – a scientist and inventor of a killer nanobots that was created to harm the country.
The film sits at a very disappointing spot on the list of Angie Harmon movies. Even though it made a fortune at the box office, it received mixed reviews from critics and film review sites. While Metacritic awarded it a 41% rating score, the film scooped an unsatisfactory 35% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
Good Advice (2001)
This is a comedy film written by Daniel Margosis and Robert Horn and produced by Steve Rash. Angie portrayed the character Page Hensen alongside respected actors , , Jon Lovitz, and Rosanna Arquette. The 93 minutes long movie is regarded as one of the films that didn’t promote or boost Harmon’s acting career as a result of poor outing and negative reviews that trailed its release. Information about the exact amount that was spent on its production as well as its performance at the box office is still under the veil. Critically, it was received unsatisfactory scores on several film review websites.
Glass House: The Good Mother (2006)
Everything was moving smoothly until two adopted kids came to truly find out the kind of adoptive mother they have. Glass House: The Good Mother tells the story of a couple; Eve (Angie) and Raymond Goode (Joel Gretsch), who, after the death of their child, decided to adopt Ethan Snow (Bobby Coleman) and Abby (Jordan Hinson) following the tragic death of their parents in an accident. Directed by Steve Antin, this mystery/suspense film is one of the worst films Angie Harmon has starred in. It was welcomed with unfavorable and unimpressed reviews from respected critics after its release.
