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 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?

3 Pulp Fiction

Should be higher on the list

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

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 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..

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 Seven

This is such an incredible movie. - fireinside96

8 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!

Fantastic Cast, character development and director :D

9 The Dark Knight
10 Scarface

Love this movie

The Contenders

11 The Godfather Part II

I haven't seen GoodFellas but the Usual Supects should be 4 and this should be 2 or 3.

12 Taxi Driver
13 Reservoir Dogs

Really a great crime drama! Tim roth-salute for your superb acting

14 Casino
15 Copycat
16 American History X
17 Lock Up
18 L.A. Confidential

Beautiful stylings, script, cast - Billyv

19 Heat
20 The Brave One
21 The Real McCoy
22 American Gangster
23 Baby Driver
24 True Romance
25 The Green Mile
26 Narc
27 A Clockwork Orange

Why do I always have to add the movies that DESERVE a top 10 placement and are not even represented yet...

28 The Godfather Part II
29 Straight Outta Compton
30 Zootopia
31 Chicago

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?

32 American Hustle

This garbage does not compare to the majority of movies on this list! Why is it higher than the Green Mile & Ocean's 11?

Not The Godfather, but pretty close too it

33 Home Alone 3
34 Blood In, Blood Out
35 Dog Day Afternoon
36 Mean Streets
37 King of New York
38 Entrapment

Two thieves pull off two stylish, perfectly planned crimes.

39 Serpico
40 Prince of the City
41 The Friends of Eddie Coyle
42 Bullitt
43 The French Connection
44 Training Day
45 Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels
46 Ocean's Eleven
