Best Edward Norton Movies


The Top TenXW

1Fight Club

A very life changing film, disturbing and starkly brutal, amazing ending a great action thriller!

- roblist

As the others say; a life-changing film with a great story and even greater cast, as Pitt and Norton have equally given the best performance (even though, I liked Norton a bit more :D)

When Norton pulls the trigger near the end there, wow, was everything just a dream? do we really exist? are we just living the reflection of the real world? the greatest movie ever!

Edward norton was the best in this movie

2American History X

"Fight club" is better than "American History X", as a movie. But for Edward Norton, playing Derrek, I think is the best role he has ever had! For Norton, "American History X" is the best movie, in which he has ever played. This movie showed his talent from the best side, a true talent of an ACTOR, a talent of transformation.
This film should be his No.1.

Fight club surprised all of us in the plot twist... And was an amazing movie... But American History X is just so good and his performance is better in this! I think this is a better movie and a performance... That's taking nothing away from fight club though

Edward Norton is the best actor I've ever seen he is such an amazing actor and this movie shows how good is really is and primal fear is also great

Everyday I woke up and just say that:god bless ed. He is my shine

This is honestly my favorite movie of all time, I've watched it over and over and I could still watch it a hundred more times. Edward stole the show as Aaron/Roy. I've never seen such an amazing portrayal of a character. The fact that he didn't win the oscar for his role is frankly ridiculous.

This should be #1. Norton gives the most amazing performance I have ever seen. Incredible personality transformations. He was a thousand times better than Cuba Gooding Jr. from Jerry Maguire and he should have gotten that Oscar.

Some of the best acting I have ever seen from Edward Norton. Definitely should of won an oscar for this film.

8The Painted Veil

I agree very underrated, amazing acting from the entire cast but in particular ed norton, you sympathized with him but saw his slightly cruel side too. Oh and perfect English accent the whole time

Absolutely stunning film. And so under-rated. I was blown away by it.

It is an awesome movie... That brought me to the paradise,

Cool film Norton at his best. Fab

The Contenders

11The Incredible Hulk

Best Hulk movie and Ed Norton was epic as Hulk in this movie!

12The Italian Job
13The Bourne Legacy

Great performance by Edward Norton and everyone else involved and just a great high-octane action movie overall.

14Everyone Says I Love You

I love The Illusionist most.

15Keeping the Faith

I agree that this movie was very good and should be ranked higher. The only problem to me was that Norton played third wheel to Stiller and Elfman throughout the film.


Movie many missed - what a loss
Movie had all emotions done with true feeling. Triple thumbs up should have MUCH higher

16Moonrise Kingdom
17The People vs. Larry Flynt
19Down in the Valley

Awesome performance by the most awesome actor: Edward Norton. He really excells at playing manipulative good-looking bad guys.

20Leaves of Grass
