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

One of my favorite movies ever - Ajkloth

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

4 Snake Eyes
5 Raising Arizona


Seriously. This one should be number one.

6 Ghost Rider

The guy can make it look like his skull is burning out of his face! What more could you ask for!?!?

7 Kick-Ass

The title alone should tell you its rating compared to the others!

8 City of Angels
9 Con Air

How is this only 9th? One of my favorite movies ever and probably my favorite line of all time: why couldn't you put the bunny back in the box?

Not the best but should be in top 5.

10 Vampire's Kiss

Nicolas Cage's craziest performance of all time! (And that's saying a lot! ) He even ate a real cockroach to put himself on the map!

11 Mandy

Best movie ever fuvking amazing

13 Gone in 60 Seconds

It's got humour and action like fast and furious

14 Adaptation

The best Nic movie

How is adaptation not in the top 5. I'm a movie buff and people, trust me you'll share my opinion once you watch it.

15 Leaving Las Vegas

P.S: Adaptation is also incredible and desveres to be at number 2
