Unconventional may be the best word to describe him.
A way of directing in which you can expect the unexpected, plus a brilliant way of storytelling, Boyle makes films that get into your brain, and they won't get of it in a long long time
With his portrait of claustrophoby; comedy; and subtle, not dramatic, sentimentalism, Boyle has become one of the greatest of our generations, and a really underrated one along with Paul Thomas, Wes Anderson
127 Hours, Trainspotting, Sunshine, Slumdog Millionaire, and 28 Days Later are among his best films
Great Actor, Versatile Director

Seriously this guy's movies are original and not duplicates of other flicks, Escape from NY (created Snake Plissken whose similarity is copied by protagonists in duke nukem, action man, metal gear and hoss del gado in Billy n Mandy), The Thing, Prince of darkness, StarMan, Vampires (which inspired van helsing), Ghosts of mars. And has also directed video games such as Fear 3, Dead Space, plus he is the cinematic director for God Of War 4 (2012)
His early works like 'Dark Star', 'Assault on Precinct 13', 'Eyes of Laura Mars', 'Halloween', 'Escape from New York' and 'Big Trouble in Little China' have all stood the test of time and remain great movies. Sadly, later films have mainly disappointed.
He's also a great composer, composing most of the music for his films (especially composing the Halloween theme song). he even has his own band called the Coupe De Viles.
How can William Wyler be forgotten.
Movies such as Ben Hur, The little foxes surely cannot be underrated.
Awesome director, different and a class apart vision too... Man of steel is a movie which will appeal future progeny
Excellent for actions movies!
There are only three Film Directors: Antonioni, Bergman, Fellini. All others are just film directors.
Very creative. Director all his movies dedicated for new generation his thinking style is difference... I enjoyed every movie of his direction
