4 Raging Bull

This is one of the greatest acting performances on film, how can you forget how great this movie was because of Robert De Niro? It is so good. The realism of this movie is intense, The fighting actually looks real and you are getting what you expected. GoodFellas is a great movie, even better than this. But This is by far his greatest performance. You have seen the true side of Robert De Niro, the greatest actor to live on the planet

PEOPLE DONT ACTUALLY KNOW WHAT ROBERT DE NIRO SACRIFICED FOR THIS MOVIE

WHEN YOU THINK OF BOXING MOVIES THAT FEEL REAL, THIS IS ONE OF THEM

5 The Deer Hunter

It's hard to discount any of the movies on this list, but this is my personal favorite from DeNiro. A touching and moving account of a group of close friends that endured the hardships of the ridiculous Vietnam War. Meryl Streep and Christopher Walken are also outstanding. Classic film. - jfausti

I tend to be bias about this being DeNiro's best movie, as this movie is my favorite movie of all time. But if you look at his role in this movie, it's astounding. In Taxi Driver, his character is basically a psychotic, lonely man. In Godfather Part II, he plays a man climbing up the ranks of mob life. This movie, his character Mike Vronsky goes though emotional and physical distress. He plays two different characters in this movie. Mike before the war, and Mike after the war. Underrated performance, my personal favorite. Check out the film, too.

6 Once Upon a Time in America

Many people may not realise just how difficult Noodles is to play. So complex and contradictory. And then all that background knowledge about him proves he's been through so much. Even during that brutal scene with Deborah in the back of the car, De Niro manages to make Noodles remain somewhat sympathetic. Incredible.

An absolutely epic movie with a quite difficult but brilliant story. Scorsese and De Niro is a brilliant combination, but don't let this one slide.

Best De Niro movie and also one of the best crime drama ever. The last scene when De Niro thinks of his childhood is epic, bring tears.

The best

7 Casino

A graphic, behind the scene tale of the real Vegas in the 70's. At times, the violence is over the top, but accepted given the context of Mafia history.

People don't realize how great this movie actually is. Sure there is Raging Bull, Mean Streets, but I like Casino. - Beatlesboy9

8 Mean Streets

One of the greatest films of all time! Should be at least above Meet the Parents.

9 Heat

The scene in the diner with Deniro and Pacino, one of the greatest scenes ever.

This movie is simply great. DeNiro is a legend

Great from beginning and end

Best movie of all time!

10 Midnight Run

Under rated flick. the scene where he and groden confiscate the counterfeit 20s was hilarious.

The Contenders

11 Cape Fear

This should seriously be in the top ten. Robert DeNiro gives the whole audience a very unique performance that gives them the chills!

Brilliant film truly one of me favourites great from start to finish

He made this movie. One bad a** villain

12 Meet the Parents
13 The King of Comedy

It is the most underrated movie of the century. Watch this guyz and I will guarantee you that you will get addicted to de niro. - Shynash21

7 on top 15 are by Scorsese, men! And this is the greatest film ever

This is a masterpeace! it should be just as famous as taxi driver or raging bull. If you haven't watched it, WATCH IT!

Robert de niro nailed it.. rupert pupkin rocks the most satrical movies.. thumbs up

14 Jackie Brown
15 A Bronx Tale

Why is this so low it's a fantastic movie

Not sure why this is 25, has probably his best acting scene when he drags his kid to see sonny

Should be top 10

16 This Boy's Life

AmAA zing

17 The Untouchables
18 Silver Linings Playbook

His best performance in years! Cooper and Lawrence were amazing too

Not as good as a movie such as Godfather 2 or the Untouchables but I highly suggest this movie.

19 Joy
20 The Mission

This movie deserves so much more than it's given credit for. It's a deep intellectual that most overlook. The interaction between the Indians and the jesuit priests is something to admire. The feeling and soundtrack is incredible. The movie is more judged for its failure at the box office, rather than its incredible acting. It may not have been popular when it was released, but it is something to really love today.

21 Righteous Kill
22 Bang the Drum Slowly
23 Ronin
24 15 Minutes
25 1900
26 Analyze That
27 Awakenings

It is just so, so shocking why this excellent movie is not included in De Niro's Top 10 films. His performance is excellent, and Robin Williams and him are perfect for their parts. I am certain it was not easy for De Niro to portray such an individual with that malady, but he excelled in doing just that! Yes, there are other fabulous performances by this fine, fine actor, but this movie definitely belongs in his top 10!

A truly bittersweet movie with fantastic acting from De Niro and Williams

I think this is one of his greatest movies. He played the role of the catonic man.
