Top Ten Best Christian Bale Movies

The Top TenXW

1The Dark Knight

Christian Bale is my favorite actor. My favorite performance of his in in the Fighter, but this is my favorite movie of all time. So yes, I voted for this. - elijahpierson

Although I love both 'The Dark Knight' & 'The Machinist' at same level, but The Dark Knight always steals the show only because of 'Heath Ledger'. But 2nd vote to The Machinist

Acting both star Christian bale and heath ledger is very well and also very good direction approach... I give this movie rate 9.6/10.

Christian bale as batman and heath ledger as the joker. Best casting for a hero and villain ever in a movie

2American Psycho

The Dark Knight was good but the reason a lot of people voted for it is because the joker or just the movie itself but we're talking about his performances. He was really good in The Dark Knight but American Psycho show how really diverse and amazing he can really be

It's hard to narrow it down to one! This one and The Machinist are two movies that will blow your mind! But in American Psycho you laugh, you cringe, you just thoroughly enjoy yourself.

He runs around naked with a chainsaw covered in blood, that is why this movie kicks ass. I would talk more about how great this movie is but I have to go return some videotapes. - BeatlesFan1964

American Psycho is an underrated classic.

3The Dark Knight Rises

Well it's at 11th unbelievable. Voted for it because it deserves at least a 4th place after the fighter, the dark knight and the machinist

I think the best part of batman. A perfect ending to a great legend. He is my favorite hero. Best from iron man, super man, captain america.

Just the best movie of all times, and I can't figure a better Bruce Wayne/Batman than Christian Bale...

Last portion of the movie is breathtaking... bale proved why he is best

4The Machinist

This movie was the reason that I became a fan of 'Christian Bale'

It is the movie where you will find the ultimate extent where an actor can reach by his/her dedication and hardwork clearly.. And at the end it will surely give you enough reasons to be a big fan of Christian Bale. Awesome movie, awesome acting, awesome story line.. A big applaus for this tremandous actor.

5The Fighter

Absolutely amazing, his best part yet, so great in this role, It looks like he is gonna win the Oscar - roblist

He absolutely lives the character Dicky Eclund in this movie. Beats American Psycho just slightly for me for his best performance yet.

Super underrated...fantastic performance

16Metroland
17Reign of Fire
18Newsies
19The New World
20Empire of the Sun

I can't believe this wasn't even on the list before! This was on of Christian Bales first movies and the plot is so touching, especially during the kamikaze pilot scenes. Bale was really young when this was filmed and he still performed so well. This movie is so underrated. So touching. This British boy living in the white part if town in China who was sheltered from everything for a majority of his life suddenly sees the ugly truth and during a war finds himself a prisoner of war, separated from his parents. He learns to live with the new way of life, relying on a middle aged unreliable American man to father him, at least at first. Eventually, he learns to take care if himself but the camp us do cruel and he feels bad about taking advantage of his old life. He befriends a Japanese child on the other side of the fence who is the child of the very people who imprisoned him. Later, that boy becomes a kamikaze soldier, breaking the boys heart. Later, the camp is attacked by American ...more
