Top Ten Best Crime Movies


The Top Ten

1 The Godfather

What the hell is this movie doing here? The 10th spot, seriously? This deserves to be 1 and if not that, at least in the top 3.

This is most boring movie I have ever seen I don't know how people like this movie

It is the best movie I've ever seen! Not only THE best crime movie but the best movie in the world, great acting, great
Story and great dialouges

2 The Usual Suspects

It was very hard to choose between "The Usual Suspects", "The Departed", "Seven", "The Godfather" and "The Shawshank Redemption"..
But, Kevin Spacy rocks...
One of the totally undebated Oscar for best actor..

3 GoodFellas

Everything from the dialog to the screenplay makes this an incredible movie. Not a single scene could be left out.

Goodfellas sucks. Why do everyone even like this movie.

Greatest film ever. Perfect

What the.. How can this not be in top 10?

4 The Silence of the Lambs

The great Anthony Hopkins and the lovely Jodie Foster, perfect for the roles of Hannibal Lecter and Clarice Starling.

5 Pulp Fiction

This movie was brilliantly written, unpredictable, and has some amazing actors/actresses, who fit their parts perfectly.
If you ask me, this should definitely be in the number one spot.

What?!?!? The rank of 21?!?! Okay, put this, The Godfather and the Shawshank Redemption up higher and maybe it'll be fair! - hhutc9

6 The Shawshank Redemption

I really don't see how it isn't #1. There are some pretty damn good films on here like Se7en, the Usual Suspects, The Godfather, Goodfellas, and The Silence Of the Lambs, but when it comes to the best movie of all time, nothing beats Shawshank.

7 The Departed

The Departed is one of the best crime movies ever! With Leo's acting, Martin Scorsese's directing, and of course you have Jack Nicholson I mean what's not to love!

63? 63?! This is one of my all time favorite movies, with a beautiful storyline, great acting, and the songs bring you to this whole different land of wonder and amusement, so why is this not the top 10?
