Greatest Acting Performances On Film


The Contenders: Page 4

61 Leonardo DiCaprio - The Wolf of Wall Street
62 Clint Eastwood - Dirty Harry
63 Song Kang-ho - The Throne

The greatest thing about Song is his incredible screen presence. In this role he carries this tragic weight. Just look in his eyes. - SourNote2014

64 Harrison Ford - Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back

Princess Leia: I love you.

Han Solo: I know.

65 Charlie Sheen - Platoon

The end speech, the war scenes and the Village scenes were all just... He couldn't of done better!

66 Al Pacino - The Godfather Part II


67 Jeff Bridges - The Big Lebowski
68 Michael Caine - The Italian Job
69 Tupac Shakur - Juice V 1 Comment
70 Charles Chaplin - The Gold Rush
71 Brad Pitt - Fight Club

Tyler Durden is honestly the Greatest Movie Character ever portrayed. Too bad the world's still doesn't understand Fight Club's worth. Brad Pitt, you were unbelievable & thank you for being Tyler and making us believe the world has a meaning.

Dude, this performance is STELLAR! Such a cult follow. #AllHaill #TylerDurden #Soap #Salesman #FightClub

72 Christian Bale - American Psycho
73 Al Pacino - Dog Day Afternoon

it is the best bank robbery film, but it also has pacinos finest performance along with the godfather movies

74 Robert Downey Jr. - Iron Man
75 Joe Pesci - Goodfellas
76 Isabelle Fuhrman - Orphan

An absolutely brilliant performance indeed. - Celestius

This was a good movie but if it weren't for this girls performance, I bet you this film would suck.

77 Joe Pesci - Casino

Casino is without a doubt one of the greatest Gangster movies of all time. I think Joe Pesci alone just made this movie. Don't get me wrong Robert De Niro, Frank Vincent and Sharon Stone had amazing performances, but nobody could beat Pesci in this film!

The performance in this was not just any ordinary performance, he maintains his comedic style of acting along with his superiority as a Mafia boss of Las Vegas. He gives a performance more funnier and character better than Goodfellas

So great in this movie, he had some memorable quotes "i'm what counts out here, not your country or ya T.V. SHOWS! " There's more and it is such a good part. I reckon he made this movie possible!

Probably martin scorsese at his finest with this film. It combines Drama with Crime, Comedy and Adventure
