'Kate & Leopold' (2001)
One of Hugh Jackman's first major roles saw him starring opposite Meg Ryan in the fantasy rom-com "Kate & Leopold".
The film wasn't necessarily received well, but critics applauded Jackman for his role as the charming bachelor, Leopold.
'The Fountain' (2006)
In what is claimed to be one of the most underrated films of the century, "The Fountain" is undoubtedly one of Jackman's best movies to date.
The actor portrays not one - but three different roles that require him to express different emotions.
Although the film polarized critics, it became a cult favourite among movie buffs.
(And of course, how could we forget to mention that he got to star alongside the amazing Rachel Weisz.)
'The Prestige' (2006)
Hugh's performance as magician Robert Angier in the Christopher Nolan classic, "The Prestige" is definitely one of his career highlights.
After a tragic accident, two stage magicians, portrayed by Jackman and Christian Bale, engage in a battle to create the ultimate illusion while sacrificing everything they have to outwit each other.
Although both characters are quite likeable, Jackman steals the show, playing his role as the underdog in the most compelling and convincing way.
Hugh continues his domination of playing likeable characters, starring as Drover in the Western-style drama film "Australia", alongside Oscar-winning actress Nicole Kidman.
The role was originally supposed to be given to Russell Crowe, but thankfully Hugh nabbed the role and ended up playing the throwback cattleman with charm and wit, as one would expect.
'Real Steel' (2011)
Jackman teams up with Evangeline Lilly for a film that may have come as a surprise to some of his fans, the futuristic family drama "Real Steel".
The film sees the actor as Charlie Kenton, a former boxer who bets heavily on his robot winning a match, but ends up owing the carnival owner big bucks.
Even though the film didn't pull big numbers at the box office, Hugh received a large amount of admiration from critics.
'Les Misérables' (2012)
2012 was the year that Jackman's theatre background came in handy, as he played the iconic role of Jean Valjean in the "Les Misérables" remake.
As the newly released prisoner looking to improve his life, the actor produced an engaging performance, receiving rave reviews from critics. He even landed his first Academy Award nomination.
To top it all off, the film smashed the box office, making over $441 million worldwide.
Hugh has proven that he's a chameleon when it comes to acting, and his role as Keller Dover was no exception.
Jackman plays a frantic father, who worries after his daughter disappears. When the police release their first suspect, he abducts the man and holds him captive in order to get any information possible on the whereabouts of his child.
Even though the actor is surrounded by a stellar cast, including Jake Gyllenhaal and Viola Davis, Jackman anchors the film, making it one of the best thrillers of the century.
'Eddie The Eagle' (2015)
Adding onto his list of feel-good roles, Jackman plays Bronson Peary, a mentor to the titular character in the inspirational sports film "Eddie the Eagle".
Although his character is initially dismissive, Jackman steals the hearts of viewers as his character helps the protagonist overcome major hurdles.
It's safe to say this one one of the actor's most underrated films.
Now, we know what you may be thinking: "What about all of the 'X-Men' films?"
It was so difficult to choose, we thought we'd honour Jackman's last time playing Wolverine by showcasing 2017's "Logan".
The film is a perfect sendoff to one of the most iconic Marvel characters, and Jackman delivered his best performance of the entire series.
'The Greatest Showman' (2017)
He can sing, he can dance, he can act - talk about a triple threat!
Jackman played the infamous P.T. Barnum in magical musical, "The Greatest Showman", that was about the creation of the Barnum & Bailey Circus.
Although the reviews for the film were mixed, it didn't stop people around the world from hitting theatres, making it a huge box office success. The movie made an astonishing $434 million worldwide.
The soundtrack also broke records, selling over 4 million copies worldwide, technically making Hugh one of the most successful male artists of the year.
