Greatest Nicolas Cage Movies


The Top Ten

1 Face/Off

I don't know about you but I am crazy over Nicolas Cage. I have seen almost all his movies including this one. When I was watching face/off I just couldn't believe what Nicolas character did to John Travolta's character. Although my favorite Nicolas Cage movie is gone in 60 seconds this one is ranked fairly high.

I want... to.. take... his fa-face... OFF

Oh, Nicolas Cage, what a great villain, because of how much of an over-actor he is ahahaha. XDD - Ethan_odd

So what happens when you put over actor #1(John Travolta) and over actor #2 (Nicolas Cage) in a movie from the most over the top director of all time? You get this awesome, one of a kind film.

Face/off and Con Air are his best movies

2 The Rock

Great movie with a good cast and an action filled plot line. the movie itself was actually believable nothing really crazy happened and suprisingly had a good amount of humor

Best ever it got 2 be number 1

3 National Treasure

My favorite movie. This and the sequel should be the top two.

It's better than the second one you can never beat the original

Literally the only movie he was in that I liked. And the best part is, he's not overacting in this one!


One of my favorite movies ever - Ajkloth
