The Top Ten

1
Man On Fire
Is my absolute favourite movie, it has me in tears every time I watch it.
Great! A man, giving his life to fulfilled his duty. A man of IRON, a man in action. I just could not take off my eyes from A to Z. Let us all performed our duty to make a better world, our dream into reality. The world need 'MAN on FIRE' to apply on other aspects too
Perfect movie from beginning to end. Very very well directed, with a great story and tremendous acting. This is my favorite movie of all time, with such an emotional story, it's hard not to love it.

2Training Day
I know folk believe this should have been number one, given he won the best actor award at the Oscars, but I feel he was cheated several times over. With that, Training Day is off the chain!
In real life he's a preacher but that move can make think twice about ''damn top skelem'' thats what make him best.
Ultra extra mega interpretation for a great actor, DENZEL. Great movie, I liked ethan hawk too.

3John Q
It shows the stress level that our fathers are put through yet will go through extreme measures of unconditional love for their children
This film deals with the ultimate human emotion, wich is unconditional love of a parent.
Because it is so sad that he kidnaps all those people just for his son it so and ex trimly sad I just love this movie~~

6Inside Man
I just love denzel.. great actor. ,.. two thumbs up. , always!

7American Gangster
Denzel brough dignity and grace to a man who pimped and raped his own community... and yet still allowing him to remain low and less glamoraized in the end... Good performance...
So good! With Russell Crowe and Denzel Washington this movie is so good!

8The Book of Eli
THIS BY FAR IS NOT ONLY THE BEST MOVIE HE HAS PLAYED IN BUT THE BEST MOVIE EVER. I LOVE THIS MOVIE AND HAVING HIM AS THE STAR MAKES IT THAT MUCH BETTER. :-)
Great move. Great story. Great acting. And great everything else!
It makes you feel like in the near future it can happen.

9Malcolm X
I have read the autobiography and speeches of Malcolm X and Denzel's ability to capture the tone and tenure of his langauge patterns is amazing. Genius on film. Thank you Spike Lee!
Superb Actor robbed from the academy.
I was still young early 14years but still remember this as a best movie I've ever watched... Man who wanted justice to happen, though a sad moment touches your heart. a good movie indeed, wish someone can borrow me this DVD movie. Albert Magoro

17Glory

He cried. I cried. Enough said.

Denzel gives a superb performance in "Glory". The battle scenes, are graphic and well acted, and he is a great actor in it over all. VOTE HERE


18Philadelphia

Though Tom hank has the main role but Denzel is too good in his supporting role...

Why he didn't get an Oscar for this is beyond me... His performance is outstanding!


19Crimson Tide
I watch this film twice a year--just to see the look on Denzel's face when Gene Hackman slaps him. Again, I do not know WHY he wasn't awarded an Oscar for this film. His entire performance is riveting! He carries this entire film.
Simply great performance by denzel and even hackman did good
This film has everything its in my top 5 films of all time

20The Great Debaters
THIS MOVIE WITH DENZEL BEST ACTOR AND DIRECTOR STORY OF RACISM EXCELLENT REAL LIFE MOVE GOOD.

21Mississippi Masala

22He Got Game
This movie honestly shows greatness from within

23Mo' Better Blues

24Devil in a Blue Dress

Breathtaking. It was because of him and Don Cheadle that I went out and purchased every single Easy Rawlin's novel in print (at that time)... This movie was soul food... grits and greens, fried chicken and biscuits, sweet tea and jazz and blues rolled into one..


25Cry Freedom

Soul stirring portrayal of one of South Africa's first freedom fighters.


26The Bone Collector

272 Guns
