New John Cena movie has been added to Rotten Tomatoes’ list of the worst films of all time

New John Cena movie has been added to Rotten Tomatoes’ list of the worst films of all time

Freelance has scored a shocking 0 per cent on the review website.

A new film with Jona Cena as the lead star has been given one of the most embarrassing accolades in the entertainment industry.

While the premise of Freelance sounds pretty routine, it seems like critics have not enjoyed a single second of the film.

So much so, that it has scored a shocking 0 per cent on Rotten Tomatoes.

Cena plays ex-special forces operative Mason Pettis who takes on a freelance job to protect washed-up journalist Claire Wellington (Alison Brie) as she interviews dictator Juan Venegas (Juan Pablo Raba) who leads a fictional country.

While it sounds like a run-of-the-mill operation, a military coup breaks out and the trio has to fight to survive and make it to safety in one piece.

After two dozen reviews, critics have panned it.

Punch Drunk Critics' Travis Hopson said: "Freelance is an utter disaster that I can't believe John Cena and Alison Brie agreed to be a part of."

Flickering Myth's Robert Kojder added: "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."

While Movie Nation's Roger Moore wrote: "'Very dumb' barely covers how silly and violent this half-assed Banana Republic riff turns out to be."

The audience score was much higher and sits at a comfortable 74 per cent, proving that regular folk still managed to be entertained by the one hour and 49 minute flick.

But scoring 0 per cent on Rotten Tomatoes means Freelance enters the list of the worst movies of all time.

It now rests alongside the likes of Jaws: The Revenge, The Ridiculous 6, The Last Days of American Crime and Max Steel.

Sir Michael Caine starred in the panned 1987 Jaws sequel that was the fourth and final film in the franchise.

When asked about the flick, Sir Michael hilariously said: "I have never seen it [the film], but by all accounts it is terrible.

"However, I have seen the house that it built, and it is terrific!"

In his autobiography, he later reflected on the movie and said Jaws 4 'will go down in my memory as the time when I won an Oscar, paid for a house and had a great holiday. Not bad for a flop movie'.

He won the Academy Award the 1986 film Hannah and Her Sisters however missed the ceremony because he was shooting the Jaws film in the Bahamas.
