Top Ten Best Arnold Schwarzenegger Movies


The Top Ten

1 Terminator 2: Judgment Day

He is my father's favorite hero. Arnold you are great, a person who grew up in a home without a phone, without a fridge and no toilet, when he was the governor, he never accepted the salary of 175,000$ and donated to various charities. Called by the Guinness book of world records "the most perfectly developed man in the history of world ". I salute you! - Ananya

While the first Terminator was a great movie, Terminator 2 improved on it in every way, It had CGI that was ahead of it's time, Great acting from Schwarzenegger, Edward Furlong (John Connor), Linda Hamilton, Robert Patrick (T-1000), great plot, great soundtrack (You can't go wrong with Guns N' Roses), and some of the most memorable qoutes in movie history (I need your clothes, your boots, and you motorcycle, Come with Me if you want to live, and the obligatory Hasta la vista, baby! ) It had great action sequences too

Amazing and funny and in my opinion it's better than the first terminator but I still love the first one

Hilarious, entertaining, such a creative and fantastic film.

2 Predator

Arnold leading a group of bad ass soldiers into the jungle to take on all comers, including an alien predator has gotta be the best pure all out machismo action flick! Arnold and his team could take out any other action team from the movies, including The Expendables guys led by Stallone!

My all time favourite action movie, film and Arnold movie. Could watch this over and over. Great action scenes and a great cast for commandos. Pure badass. - Mo123456

Greatest science fiction action movie ever. Everything is so good and serious about this movie. Such great action sequences and muscle cast.

This is unquestionably the most entertaining,spectacular and intense arnold movies. It is better than terminator 2 because it has a better pace, it is less talky and the movie is more watchable because of that. Arnold also brings a human sensibility to his character. It is his most human and most credible character. And not to forget the wonderful and spectacular diection of John Mctiernan.

Not many people prefer this over Terminator 2. But I do. Amazing atmosphere and action, and of course amazing acting by Arnold, Michael Biehn and Linda Hamilton.

How the heck is this not number 1 this is the movie that helped make him a successful actor I mean seriously people - ronaldregan

Terminator is the best movie ever

4 Total Recall

Arnold in space three b**bs, mutants, space soldiers, rebels, memory manipulation... best things of every other science fiction movie ever! not to mention the shear awesomeness of the effects for the time and Paul V. directing. Awsome sound effects and story too-keeps you thinking.

Great movie that will mess with your head and get you thinking. Not all mindless action.

Classic Arnold movie. Fun movie and great flow. Could watch over and over.

5 Commando

I love the movie, but man is the acting terrible! Also, it has one of the biggest movie mistakes of all time during the Porsche accident scene.
