This role deserves more recognition than anything else he's done, or will ever do.
The Gnat
Not the greatest one that I have seen, but not one of the worst either.
The movie often follows two different plots that tie in with the main one - a story-within-a-story about a medieval conquistador (also Jackman) searching for the mythical "tree of life" in South America, and Tom's future, where he lives inside a ball with a tree as it hurtles through outer space. Something like that. It's even harder to wrap your head around the plot when it happens on screen.
