Best Denzel Washington Movies

The Top Ten
Man On Fire Man On Fire Product Image

The emotional depth of this film is what sets it apart from all the rest, and very few come close. One of the ones that comes close in this list is John Q.

Great! A man, giving his life to fulfilled his duty. A man of IRON, a man in action. I just could not take off my eyes from A to Z. Let us all performed our duty to make a better world, our dream into reality. The world need 'MAN on FIRE' to apply on other aspects too

Perfect movie from beginning to end. Very very well directed, with a great story and tremendous acting. This is my favorite movie of all time, with such an emotional story, it's hard not to love it.

Denzel played this role perfectly one of my favorite movies. The way he and Dakota played the roles makes the movie seem that much realer. Instant classic and never gets old!

Training Day Training Day Product Image

I know folk believe this should have been number one, given he won the best actor award at the Oscars, but I feel he was cheated several times over. With that, Training Day is off the chain!

Hands down, Training Day was the best film Denzel ever played in. The action, the suspense, two thumbs up for sure. I love al Denzel films, but Two Thumbs up for Training Day.

An excellent performance there was nothing like it and Denzel Washington is one one of the greatest actors of all time. This was an amazing Crime

ALL I CAN SAY IS, he transformed. Here, nobody recognizes Him as Denzel. The character he played was Lit!

Remember The Titans Remember The Titans Product Image

I really feel that Denzel took control in this movie. After watching it, I felt I could have run through a wall to make a tackle. Sort of a Rocky moment. By the way, The Equalizer and Unstoppable should be higher, they were both great adrenaline rushes.

Great movie... Its worth seeing every weekend.. Specially on sunday afternoons, no words to describe our denzil... Great stuff man

An excellent history movie about what it was like for african american citizens in the 70's

I watch it whenever I feel I need to boost up my confidence. Very inspiring movie.

Malcolm X Malcolm X Product Image

I was still young early 14years but still remember this as a best movie I've ever watched... Man who wanted justice to happen, though a sad moment touches your heart. a good movie indeed, wish someone can borrow me this DVD movie. Albert Magoro

I have read the autobiography and speeches of Malcolm X and Denzel's ability to capture the tone and tenure of his langauge patterns is amazing. Genius on film. Thank you Spike Lee!

This deserves #1. Just because he wasnt a gun-toting badass in this excellent film doesn't mean it wasnt a fantastic Denzel performance. This list is flawed and was decided by people with double digit IQ's.

I still see some of the scenes from this movie in my head whenever I think about it. Denzel at his most powerful.


Denzel played the part for 114 shows on broadway, and you can see every ounce of effort he's put into the role throughout his life in this film. Amazing adaptation, anchored by an amazing force that is Denzel Washington.

American Gangster

Denzel has a very wide range, however all of his movies are absolutly off the charts. He is one of the greatest of all times!

So good! With Russell Crowe and Denzel Washington this movie is so good!

Best movie ever, avobe all the story, based in real events, both Denzel Washington and Russel Crowe is awesomwe too.

Best actor ever in the best movie ever bad ass man

John Q John Q Product Image

Because it is so sad that he kidnaps all those people just for his son. It's so extremely sad. I just love this movie.

Best movie I've ever seen... It just put me in my feelings right now.. Had me cryin an stuff.. My #1

Best movie from Denzel Washington, honestly it should became an Oscar

This film deals with the ultimate human emotion, wich is unconditional love of a parent.

Glory Glory Product Image

After almost 20 years Washington's performance is still riveting despite a cliched script. He and Freeman and Brauer transcend the material. The battle scenes though are glorious.

Denzel gives a superb performance in "Glory". The battle scenes, are graphic and well acted, and he is a great actor in it over all. VOTE HERE

He cried. I cried. Enough said.

Changed America.

The Book of Eli The Book of Eli Product Image

Absolutely outstanding. We, as a Nation, may very well be heading toward having to lay down our lives for truth, as the Bible teaches.

This was my favorite movie it's a very uplifting movie that really puts things in perspective

Love this movie. I watch it over and over. Mr Washington never fails to please in his movies.

Great move. Great story. Great acting. And great everything else!

Inside Man Inside Man Product Image

He's my best actor, always wann my son to be like hi

I just love denzel.. great actor. ,.. two thumbs up. , always!

The Contenders
Fallen Fallen Product Image

Very underrated. Him ultimately more than a detective of the earthly, but the spiritual. The narration moves along well with the intriguing plot. The tone is tense on this movie and spooky. Top 5 for sure, possibly 3.

I appreciate you putting this as high as you did a lot of people don't know about this movie.

Amazing Underrated Movie

Best movie with Denzel in it. Makes me want to get drunk before noon

Amazing Movie... Denzel gets into the character like no one else could have! Mind bogglingf.

It affected my emotional life and I love rewatching because the acting is terrific.

Great movie.. Denzel was awesome in the movie.

Crimson Tide Crimson Tide Product Image

I watch this film twice a year--just to see the look on Denzel's face when Gene Hackman slaps him. Again, I do not know WHY he wasn't awarded an Oscar for this film. His entire performance is riveting! He carries this entire film.

Fantastic film! Washington and Hackman...are u kidding me? That's tough to beat. Their performances fed beautifully off one another and made for a thrilling movie.

This movie did not receive its due. Was it because the power of the character Denzel played makes folks a little nervous?

Simply great performance by denzel and even hackman did good

The Equalizer

A new experience every time whenever I saw it. Danzel is my favourite but Equalizer is something more than that.

Love this story line and the stoic almost aspergers character. Justice prevail. A touch, but feel good movie.

This should be in the top five at least. This is a great movie

Yeah! I agree it should be in the top 5 list undoubtedly

Philadelphia Philadelphia Product Image

One of my favorite movies of all-time. This movie was monumental in opening the door to discussing AIDS & alternative lifestyles. Hanks & Washington were both riveting in this film. The plot was great but Hanks & Washington took this film to a whole other level. Still chokes me up when I watch this.

Why he didn't get an Oscar for this is beyond me... His performance is outstanding!

Though Tom hank has the main role but Denzel is too good in his supporting role...

It was Hanks movie yet Denzel made it
hid as well.

The Bone Collector The Bone Collector Product Image

Denzel is stuck in a bed as a quadriplegic & yet his presence and acting are the backbone of this movie. I must admit, I really enjoy this film and watch it regularly.

Great movie...watched it several times
just saying

Best film ever

I couldn't sleep so I got up and put the T.V. on and there it was.what a fantastic movie I was sad when it was over but I was so happy of the ending...that was some acting I couldn't believe how intrigued I was, wonderful movie and great acting

Denzel is genius---but it wasn't until I met the real Ruben Carter that I realized how genius he is! Denzel is one of the BEST actors on the planet.

Not only Denzel's best movie, but a great, great movie.

Really great movie. In my opinion one of the best movies from DW.

Unstoppable Unstoppable Product Image

Great movie, surprisingly not repetitive, as I expected it to be. Great story too, so this is my 1#

One of the most realistic movies I have ever seen in ma life! Very good acting by Denzel!

Full of exciting moments... Denzel is great in his role...
