Greatest Tom Hanks Movies


The Top TenXW

1Forrest Gump

Surely the best movie of Tom Hanks.
"Life is a box of chocolates.. you never know what u gona get" - redgedawson

I love his stupidity
like "u are my girl"
"he's got a daddy named forest too"

Run forrest run to the top of the list

In my Top 2 Movies of all time with The Goonies being #1 only because that was the first really good movie I ever watched and without either of the two my life would never be the same.

2Saving Private Ryan

There is absolutely no other! His performance is pretty good but the movie is so much better than any Tom Hanks movie! It does rival Forrest Gump though

3Cast Away

I'm voting for this based on performance.. Still think private ryan is the best film he's ever been in.. But his acting in this film is SO good he's absolutely flawless he alone carries this film the last 30 minutes are so moving its hard to watch.. And what about the burbs not even cracking the top 25? That film is hilarious an underrated comedy in my opinion

I love this kind of things and Im big lost fan - remo333

I watched this movies twice. I think it is not only movie but it is real time story of a person who escapes from no man's island. My hats off to Tom Hanks for his wonderful acting.

Wow.. This movie is thought provoking, touching and awesome at its best. I cannot even imagine anybody else doing this role, that would just be unfair. The whole charisma of this movie comes from tom hanks.

4The Green Mile

the standards of this film is MILES ahead of the rest. a very emotional story with fantastic acting

This is absolutely the most Powerfully driven movie of all time. It is devastating when John and Paul Edgecomb both know it wasn't him that killed the girls but John still has to die. Otherwise still an incredible movie. Second best only to Forrest Gump. - Beatlesboy9

No other words to describe this movie other than 'simply stunning'. Tom Hanks and Michael Clarke Duncan provide an incredible double act that will almost certainly strike your emotions and reduce you to tears. Along with The Shawshank Redemption, it is the best film I've ever witnessed.

Just watched it again yesterday. What a great movie and thought provoking story line.

5Toy Story

Toy Story is a huge part of my childhood. - Ajkloth

Favorite of all animation.

Should at least be number 2


I saw this movie when I was 10 on cable Television. It inspired me then and I wanted to see it again but couldn't because I live in India and you can't just go to store and buy an American movie in those days. About a year ago, I downloaded it, found complete silence and then saw it again. It felt like the last piece of an incomplete puzzle.

I can watch this movie over and over again and never get enough. Its almost sad when he turns small again, he's impossible to let go. He's just spectacular in everything he does. The way he walks, talks, plays, run... His innocence brings out the charm in the movie.

very nice movie tom hanks is amazing in this movie

Such a great film. Tom hanks is an outstanding actor in all his movies. - Beatlesboy9

7Apollo 13

Not a false note in Hanks' acting... No overwrought response when he realises what the crew of Apollo 13 faces, the odds stacked pretty much against them. He is in complete control, knowing his crew depends on him.

I absolutely loved this movie. I also like how it relates to NASA too! - beatles5

Its good to see

8The Terminal

He has shown acting can not only be done by great dialogues. Here, his innocence is his great power. He is really a versatile actor. Salute you Hanks.

This is a great movie because the whole movie is taken within a terminal...
I have seen all Tom Hanks movies and I like this movie and 'Angels and Demons' very much... The best part about this movie is that Hanks makes friends with the people in the terminal and falls in love with a woman... I belived this movie would be next in rank to Forrest Gump... I am pretty much disappointed... Vote for this movie guys...

I don't think, this movie should be in the top 10 list...
Yeah!.. tom hanks is good but overall I found this movie a tad bit boring, and I didn't see how sleepless in Seattle, you've got mail and a league of their own is not a part of this list.

Definitely the best for me :D

9Toy Story 2
10Toy Story 3

Why isn't Toy Story 3 NOT in the top ten? It's higher than The Green Mile and Big on the list for best movies of all time.

The Contenders


This should have been higher on the list, the acting is the best.

I'm on love with Andrew Beckett thanks for Tom Hanks's acting...

12Captain Phillips

Tom Hanks best film in recent times, absolutely incredible. He gives such a genuine and strong performance with great depth. Captain Phillips is a breathtaking film with tremendous performances and it's full of intensity and excitement. It kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time.

Definitely deserves to be in the top 5. Great movie! Incredible acting by Tom Hanks. It's a must watch! Gripping story and suspense is there till the very end!

His acting in the last scene was amazing (when he was with the doctor). Tom Hanks is such a fantastic actor

This should be in number 3! Come on.
