Movies with The Greatest Visual Effects

The Top Ten Movies with The Greatest Visual Effects

1 Transformers

You may say that the visual effects from Transformers 4 and 5 are like garbage but when you look closely, they are actually similar to James Cameron VFX!

I hate Michael Bay's movie so much that I quit after second one which I didn't see complete but one thing his movies have best that's visuals especially from transformers 3. They are breathtaking

All you stupid look closely it looks fake but sometimes only in one or two scene it looks real due to which I am voting it

Great movie... I'll waiting the transformer 3 dark of the moon

2 Jurassic Park

Yes, Transformers may have awesome and stylish visuals, but what about the film that made these elements strong enough to inspire movies like Titanic, Lord of the Rings, Avatar, The Star Wars Prequels E.T.C.

In my personal opinion, Jurassic Park will remain the father of recent special effects and I'm glad Steven Spielberg made it possible. Also, it gave us a more realistic approach of dinosaurs and the result was terrifying and breathtaking. - hussaintalib

After 65 Millon Years they were back - MatrixGuy

Great visuals, especially from a film in the early 90's because it didn't have what Transformers and other recent films have today. It was just so realistic.

It still looks real today in 2017!

3 Avatar

Don't know why is it on 3rd but every one knows it's the best undoubrtedly

James cameron sacrificed so much for this movie! And it came out good!
Visual effects, Great Storyline & massive Gross Revenue, what more could you want!
James Cameron has done it again - Eon

Wow. The visuals are so amazing. No wonder it won best Visual effects at the Oscars. They look gorgeous.

None of the Tranformers movies have even won an Academy award for best visual effects. How is it number one? I would believe the consensus would make this movie. It is stunningly beautiful and a lot better than Tranformers.

4 The Matrix

This movie is a champion in every way including visual effects - MatrixGuy

Bullet time is epic. I was so baffled. - BoltMarksman

Bullet time was awesome and dynamic on so many levels.
Really other awesome effects added too.

5 Star Wars

Hey, ever heard of ILM? It stands for Industrial light and magic and has done special effects to almost all big movies released after Star Wars, including harry potter, jurassic park, Indiana jones, pirates of the caribbean, avatar and hundreds others. Just name a movie, theyve done it! Without star wars special effects as we know it wouldn't exist! Think about it!

There are movies that came out in the 2000's that have inferior Special Effects to this 1977 masterpiece

The gold standard by which all other effects movies are judged

6 Terminator 2: Judgment Day

Should be 1 without t2 we wouldn't have all the cool effects we have today and these effects were made in 1991 so they are the best aged effects

this piece of excellency and shear of what hollywood is
made in 1991 best before the world knew whats special and visual effects - shawnsoscar

This movie set a new standard of visual graphics for the movie industry. In 1991 these were top notch and can even compete in 2014!

This should be number 1. Because in 1991 is not technological days. It shows how hard to try make this movie...

7 Aliens

for that year it was the bomb - Magnolia

Amazing Effects
Insane...1979 was it? Looks more like 2020 or something! Great effects, if you watched it at that time when it was released I am sure you would have been scared to death!

8 Star Wars: The Force Awakens
9 Lord Of The Rings - The Return of The King

this one of a kind peace biggest worth are not the visual effects but still they are fabulous - MatrixGuy

Great Graphics In the Fights... Great Acting And Even Great Acting... - Eon

This is the best war movie that sets a good effects

It had Gollum, enough said. - mtgo02

10 Titanic

We can't imagine how hard was record this movie. They didn't have ship or ocean or anything, but they recorded one of the greatest movies ever! - TitanicDiaries

I just LOVE titanic. EOS. - allbbyx3

The Contenders

11 Maleficent

The special effects are so real looking.

12 Pirates of the Caribbean - Dead Man's Chest
13 Godzilla (2014)

Only one word can explain the pure genius and visuals of godzilla 2014. SPECTACULAR!

14 Jurassic World
15 Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
16 Spider-Man

Graphics are better but could have been more better specially in spider
Man 3...

17 The Thing
18 X-Men
19 Iron Man 3

The effects a better than its prequels

20 The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2

Take this off the list

21 Tron: Legacy

Better than the original film's visual effects. I'll give you that. The original Tron visual effects are completely outdated. After watching Tron Legacy, I concluded that Tron Legacy is superior to the original film. - Kevinsidis

Tron is way too underrated..

22 Saving Private Ryan
23 Total Recall
24 Transformers: Dark of the Moon
25 Baahubali: The Beginning

It's truly amazing - vivek0305

Indian pride

Best movie in terms of VFX in Asia

The war formations that form a chunk of the latter portions of the film are the best we’ve seen in Indian cinema so far. These portions are spectacular and show the technical finesse of the cinematographer (K.K. Senthil Kumar) and the visual effects teams. The waterfall, the mystical forests and water bodies above the cliffs and the lead pair escaping an avalanche all add to the spectacle. Give into its magic, without drawing comparisons to Hollywood flicks. - vivek0305

26 Mortal Kombat
27 The Avengers
28 Gravity

Everything feels so real... The lighting and the physics of the movie are just perfect... If you watch transformers closely you can make out its animation.. It looks so stupid

29 Transformers: Age of Extinction
30 Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back
31 Twilight
32 Interstellar

Should be #1

Okay so we have ra. One and magadheera before interstellar! What has the world come to?

33 Doctor Strange

The best by far!

34 Artificial Intelligence: AI
35 2001 - A Space Odyssey

No idea why Twilight is on here. You might as well put Love Actually on here. This movie is still very good in terms of the visuals. Quite the spectacle after all these years. - logblobo

Who the hell put Transformers at the top? Everyone with half a brain knows that was garbage.
