Greatest Johnny Depp Movies

America's greatest actor (or at least in my opinion) has been in so many great films, it's hard to tell which is best. What do you think?

The Top Ten

1 Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl

1. Pirates of the Caribbean
2. Edward Scissorhands
3. Sweeney Todd
4. Sleepy Hollow
5. Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas - ninjacobra

Johnny Depp NAILED Captain Jack Sparrow's character! Perfect make up, drunk attitude, wobbly walking, gun handling, sword fighting. Pour the self made eunuch jokes for Will Turner (Depp made them himself) in the mix and you get one of the best character of the century. - UnheardMelody

Johnny deep is my most favorite actor..I love him..I love his Jack sparrow character. Perfect match. No one can do better than Johnny

He wS a great great great actor. He was superb I have no words to tell to tell his acting

3 Sweeney Todd - The Demon Barber of Fleet Street

Jack Sparrow is my favorite Johnny Depp character, but Sweeney Todd is my favorite Johnny Depp movie. Great direction and performances, splendid art direction, and it's the only musical that I have loved in a while. - elijahpierson

I thought the movie would be a disappointment so I should rather don't waste my time watching it.. But when I watched, it turns out to be the best depp's performance ever. Have never seen a movie like this

Johnny Depp was amazing as Sweeney Todd. I was a fan fan of the stage show before the movie came out, so I didn't think I would like it, but his performance blew me away.

MY favorite MOVIE EVER! Johnny Depp is ome of the most amazing actors ever, just the roles he plays... sleepy hollow is amazing as well!

8 What's Eating Gilbert Grape?

This is the kind of movie that changes your live. It makes you want to change something (if there is something to change) it's the kind of movie that makes you stare at the screen for minutes even after the film ended. I loved it. It's great acting from both Johnny and Leonardo and the story is unforgettable!

Match in the gas tank. BOOM, BOOM. Gilbert, it's a Burger Barn. IT'S BURGER BARN! Say thank you Gilbert, thank you. You can't find me AH.

Awesome movie. Stays with you for a while. Great acting and of course johnny Depp is one of the best actor in the world right now, hands down. No words for it. Its a conspiracy that he hasnt won a lot of best actor awards.

Great movie
