Top Ten Best Tom Cruise Movies


The Top Ten

1 The Last Samurai

What an epic movie. Before this movie A Few Good Men was my favorite but this trumped it. Scene where he keeps getting up in the rain was amazing - tacitus23

They all suck!

This movie made me appreciate Japan's culture. Tom was also great as Nathan Algren. - MissionImpossible

He plays an amazing role and the film is absolutely sensational, if you haven't seen it I strongly recomend you watch it.

2 Mission Impossible

the best mi3 movie ever!
cruise rocked alongside some great performances by reno and the rest of the cast, truly awesome in its time!

This is an awesome movie! The action is so exciting! I love mission impossible 1,2,3, and 4! Tom Cruise was amazing in this movie!

Classic at its maximum! This movie is pure nostalgia! - cbrann10

3 A Few Good Men

A great movie, with some memorable quotes and excellent moments! Tom Cruise stars in this interesting court room drama

My favorite film and performance of Tom's. Gotta love that courtroom scene with Nicholson!

Great movie. Up there with Tropic Thunder for him

4 Top Gun

It's only one of the greatest movies ever! Plus Iceman is amazing, but this is about Tom Cruise. Anyways, I LOVE Top Gun and it should be way higher on this list.

I don't know why this movie is not in the top 5 come on guys...

That also used to be a ride at Kings Island. - Connor360

All time favourite

5 Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol

Vote for the jump of burj khalifa in this movie guys
It should be above from 9

Why is this not #2, it deserves to be after Last Samurai

This is his best movie ever! -. - - Hameedbingaf

This should be the best 1
Number 1 of tom cruise reddy

6 Minority Report

very good sci fi by spielberg and cruise holds his own too!

7 Magnolia

His style was perfect

8 Rain Man

I love this movie. I love watching Rain Man with my family. This movie came out when my parents were kids in 1988. Rain man came out in 1988, eleven years older than me. I love Tom Cruise in this movie, Dustin Hoffman did a great job in this movie as well.

Rain Man won Best Picture for a reason. Because it's a great film, unlike Last Samurai or Top Gun. This should rise into the top 3

How is this behind last samurai, and how is last samurai first?

The best movie ever and I'm only 9!

9 Edge of Tomorrow

I loved this film! It was action packed, but it had comedy which was refreshing. I saw it in theaters with these seats that jerked around do it was like YOU were on the helicopter. It's a very good movie and it held my attention - baconyum

One of the greatest, exciting, dramatic action movies Tom Cruise done lately - MatrixGuy

This is one of the best Tom Cruise movies. It is exciting, clever, and has some humor. Both he and Emily Blunt do an amazing job in portraying their respective characters, and the rest of the cast was chosen expertly.

Smart, modern and fast.
The movie has a high paste and a great storyline. Combined with the finer work of Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt makes this a piece of art that probably will only get better as the time passes. The mix of SciFi, Romance, action and humor is rarely done this good.

10 Jerry Maguire

I am a huge tom cruise fan. I think jerry maguire is the kind of performance, where cruise really gets his game on.

Show Me The Money! I Just Love This Movie It's So Inspiring It Taught Me That No Matter How Broke You Are Never Ever Give Up It Taught Me Never Let Your Loved Ones Go. Tom Cruise Deserved Oscar For This Film.

The Contenders

11 Collateral

Cruise does an incredible job of creating a likable villain. At the end of the movie you are not sure who you want to win. He is just so intelligent and engaging I found myself wishing he would succeed and escape.

It's better than Heat. Tom Cruise was very convincing as a hitman. - MissionImpossible

12 Eyes Wide Shut

Its very hot

13 Interview with the Vampire

Tom Cruise was the perfect choice to play Lestat, he was even better than that loser Brad Pitt. - MissionImpossible

14 War of the Worlds

Absolute masterpiece, better than the original. He tells a story of an alien invasion, and humanities will to survive. Tom Cruise, Dakota Fanning stun this movie. - roblist

one of the greatest blockbuster box office record breaking movies of all time! - robertoantonioortuso

Love this film with Dakota and Cruise!

Great SCI FI, Thrilling to watch

15 Risky Business V 1 Comment
16 The Firm

I can't believe the firm and rain man are not in the top ten. Is everyone out of there mind! Let's fix this A.S.A. P!

One of the all time best Thrillers. This movie has everything; action, drama, romance and lots and lots of RUNNING.

17 Tropic Thunder

An all-star cast and amazing humor, if a bit slapstick.

18 Mission Impossible II

I don't care what others think, MI 2 is awesome and has the best action scenes thanks to Tom who does his own stunts like a pro and no actor can pull it off like him. - MissionImpossible

Slick action scenes and plus, it's directed by John Woo, so you know it's going to be one hell of a ride.

This movie is terrible leads to a stupid love relationship that nobody cares about and has over the top explosions you'd think this was a Michael bay movie
