5 ft 7 is about right. About 3.5 inches shorter than 5ft 10.5 Viggo Mortense in the Two Faces of January. Great actor, powerful presence.

Isaac is kind of a shorty, this is true, but nevertheless athletically gifted. Nobody else in the movies, including Tom Cruise, can run like this man. Check him out in the movie Sucker Punch. Also, he does an amazing falling leap from a tree in The Bourne Legacy.
The ability to run well is how I judge athleticism, and a lot of action movei actors run poorly. Arnold Schwarzenegger runs like a very old elephant. Clint Eastwood and Steven Seagal are both knock-kneed, and run like storks. On the other hand, Daniel Craig runs very well, and Steve McQueen could really scoot.

@Richard. I agree with you...I was surprised by the casting choice. I am about as tall as Oscar, and there's no way I would have been comfortable trying to be as big as a character Apocalypse should have been. When I was thinking about a good actor of reasonable size and "look" for the role, I was thinking Arnold Vosloo from the Mummy franchise. Oh well, hopefully your faith in comic book movies is restored some day.

I saw him in the new X-men movie, I was kind of shocked out of all the actors possible to portray Apocalypse, he was chosen to play the most powerful mutant, Isaac is a short man, and not very muscular. I was thinking he would merely provide the voice of a CGI character, I was even more shocked to discover that he would literally portray the character in costume and makeup, he looked nothing like the comic book character, like many classic X-men characters, one of the most popular X-men characters was altered for the big screen. Very disappointing considering that it costed millions to make this movie, almost as much as Batman v Superman. I think I am forever done with comic book films.

He looked 5'11" in x men apocalypse, but those boots were quite huge(about 4") so 5'7" sounds about right

That may be it. Oscar has really odd proportions, whereas Mark Ruffalo has excellent proportions.

Rob: Why is it that Oscar seems to look 'short' in almost everything he's in while Mark Ruffalo, who is of similar height, often manages to look average-sized on screen? Do their respective personas have something to do with it? Oscar often seems to get cast in Napoleon Complex-type roles (e.g. Ex Machina, Drive).
Editor Rob: at times in Ex Machina I thought actually he could look 5ft 8...but maybe his head and body at times just gives off a smaller impression.

No way is he close to 5'8. He looked bonafide 'short' in Ex Machina. 5'6 and change I'd say. Legit 5'8 men do not look 'short' next to people that are 6'0/6'1 like Gleeson.

Is he really 5 7 and a half?
said on 6/Feb/16
Rob, how tall do you think the Coen Bros. are? Joel's listed as being 6'0 in most places, and he looks that range. Ethan's usually listed as 5'8, but he actually looks a bit shorter than Oscar Isaac, like 5'6.5-5'7. What do you think? In either case, Joel looks about five inches taller.
Editor Rob: he could be 5ft 7 and brother 5ft 11.5 range

He looks like he could be 5ft8 if John Boyega is 5ft 8.75 they seem to be similar height but i can see John is slight bit taller

intresting claim he made in a gq magazine recently:
"I never thought of myself as an ethnic actor,” he adds. “I don't feel comfortable saying I speak for Guatemalans. Or for Latin men. Or for Latin men that are five nine.…”
Rob are you still going with the 5'7.5 in or do you believe him?
Editor Rob: he can at times look 5ft 8, but 5ft 9 I think would be a bit high.

Ron, my guess would be that he tops out at 160lbs. He does have a medium build and I don't see him bigger than that weight. As far as his height goes, I saw another website had him at 5'11.5." Are you kidding me! He never looked more than 5'8" 160 - 165lbs to me.

Could you add The Bourne Legacy, A Most Violent Year, Ex Machina and Show Me a Hero to his credits?

5'7.5"? He didn't look 5.5" inches shorter than Domhnall Gleeson (who you have listed as 6'1").
said on 14/Aug/15
Rob, How much would you say his weight is? he doesnt have a small frame. he has a medium build. this guy reminds me of al pacino a lot.
[Editor Rob: not really sure on weight for Oscar]

He is leaning a tad and James does have hair advantage though.
said on 25/Jul/15
@Rob Check out this with James Corden.
Looks taller or Isaac is shorter. That's more than half an inch.
said on 21/Jun/15
Actually when I googled him I got 5'9, therefore this height is incorrect
[Editor Rob: if you googled corey feldman's height and saw 5ft 8.5 and looked at His page
here you'd say that's incorrect, that he is half inch taller than you :)
Arch Stanton said on 17/Jun/15
Barefoot with Domhnall Gleeson in shoes in Ex-Machina this guy is dwarfed by him, 5'7" range seems right.
measure74 said on 25/May/15
Google is so wrong. They give this guy 1,74 like Antonio Banderas, while he actually havea about 1,70 m. Perhaps Google wants to make feel better short men.

Oscar Isaac's height is 5ft 7.5in 171 cm.
Maybe a strong 170cm and a weak 171cm
Mike said on 6/Dec/14
5ft 7.5-8 range.
Sam said on 25/Jun/14
They made him look more than 3/4 of an inch shorter than Jeremy Renner in The Bourne Legacy, may have been a case of "heroic" camera angles in favor of Renner plus most shots were outside so possible uneven terrain.

Rob, no arguments here 171-172 is spot on. But you must agree about one thing in most events his footwear is very humble, so i think he is not below 171 at night. Least about 170.8.The pic of the premiere u hve got, he looks head to head with Carey Mulligan cause he has got some heels. But usually she looks taller as he wears flats. Mark Ruffalo is another guy who has very humble footwear.
Sam said on 16/Apr/14
Yeah, I think this is accurate...Isaac was towered by William Hurt and just about by John Goodman. It makes me feel the Coens are a little shorter than I thought, since Isaac is similar or a bit more than Ethan, so I'd guess Ethan 5'7" and Joel 5'11". Also, supporting that is that 5'11.25" Javier Bardem in his Anton Chigurh boots seemed taller than Joel and Joel was not that much over 5'10" Billy Bob Thornton either.

@Editor Rob: Given that DiCaprio is 5'11, this listing is spot on imo.
But if DiCaprio's staying put at 5'11.5, Isaac should be getting away with 5'8: Click Here
Realist said on 2/Jan/14
If he was 5'8.5 he would be taller the Carey Mulligan even with her in heels.
