@Chinelo Chukwunyere The franchise made a lot of money, yes. But it didn't give them the chance to show their true acting talent. They even hated their role in the franchise. Their performance were quite bad that it earned bad reviews from critics and some audiences. Save their career didn't mean by starring in a successful film but also by giving a great performance with great directing and great script

@James Wagley You didn't listen to what the narrator say, did you? She clearly said that whether their career slumped back after that one performance is clearly out of the question. I agree with you though, besides the Marvel franchise, his only other films that are famous or successful at the box office are those two Sherlock Holmes films. But the Marvel franchise just ended with Avengers:Endgame. RDJ will have the chance to star in more successful films in the future

I clicked on this because of the thumbnail, but did Jim Carrey really need to save his career!? I know he has had some person shit happen in the recent, but man I've enjoyed his work all the time. Him in Kick-Ass 2 as, Colonel Stars and Stripes. That name itself is funny! I just need to see him as Dr. Robotnik, so I'll see then but otherwise. And Johnny Depp just needs to do a new franchise. Mean don't think I would complain about another Pirates of The Caribbean, especially since Sea of Thieves has become what it is. I'd love to see more from Johnny Depp. Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas is another great film he's in, and others too. Also yes 8:50 Nicholas Cage is a funny guy, he just does things , random funny things, that I enjoy watching. Some say he's a bad actor, but nah I do enjoy his performances in the films I have seen him in. Haha yes Liam Neeson now that man and Keanu Reeves need to do a action movie, John & Bryan. John trains Bryan how to kill with a pencil, and Bryan, well he has a certain set of skills, that only he knows. Whoa 13:36 Liam was one of the main things good about Episode I, apart from Darth Maul. Shame Qui-Gon couldn't live on, as he was the coolest Jedi! And the existence of Deadpool is the best thing to happen to film, especially as we will see him join the MCU.

Tom Cruise in Tropic Thunder (After M.I.3.) And I'd personally say Leonardo DiCaprio in Blood Diamond (for me at that age the stink of Titanic made him unwatchable). You could say he did Catch me if You Can, or numerous Martin Scorsese movies... but for me Leo in Blood Diamond made him into a bonified badass I would never feel ashamed to watch as more than just a pretty boy.

Keanu Reeves is my personal favorite turnaround. He starred in so many great action movies, but was always trashed for his acting. Sure enough, he seems like he has a hard time stepping into roles. But when he for some reason was picked up for playing John Wick, everything just clicked. He could finally do the character the way he wanted and seeing an actor get into the role like he did with John Wick is movie magic.
