Top Ten Best Crime Movies

Alexandr

The Top Ten

1 The Godfather

Crime? if not The Godfather, then?

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

Goodfellas for me.

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

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 Usual Suspects

Best ending of all time.

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..

5 The Dark Knight
6 The Silence of the Lambs

Mastepiece of masterpieces!

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

7 The Godfather Part II

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

8 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.

9 Scarface

Love this movie

10 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

The Contenders

11 Seven

This is such an incredible movie. - fireinside96

12 Taxi Driver
13 Reservoir Dogs

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

14 Copycat
15 American History X
16 Lock Up
17 A Clockwork Orange

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

18 L.A. Confidential

Beautiful stylings, script, cast - Billyv

19 Heat
20 The Brave One
21 The Real McCoy
22 Baby Driver

24 True Romance
25 The French Connection
26 Narc
27 City of God
28 One For The Money
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?

33 Home Alone 3
34 Blood In, Blood Out
35 Dog Day Afternoon
36 Mean Streets
