Top Ten Best Arnold Schwarzenegger Movies

The Top Ten
1 Terminator 2: Judgment Day

While the first Terminator was a great movie, Terminator 2 improved on it in every way, It had CGI that was ahead of it's time, Great acting from Schwarzenegger, Edward Furlong (John Connor), Linda Hamilton, Robert Patrick (T-1000), great plot, great soundtrack (You can't go wrong with Guns N' Roses), and some of the most memorable qoutes in movie history (I need your clothes, your boots, and you motorcycle, Come with Me if you want to live, and the obligatory Hasta la vista, baby! ) It had great action sequences too

A person who grew up in a home without a phone, without a fridge and no toilet, when he was the governor, he never accepted the salary of 175,000$ and donated to various charities. Called by the Guinness book of world records "the most perfectly developed man in the history of world ". I salute you!

The Terminator was good. Terminator 2 was really good. Terminator 3 I was a bit disappointed, action was good and the female villain (T-X) was also good but I think humour switch a small over place.

Predator was the first of his movies that blew me away, T2 took it to an all new level. For a 1991 movie, the special effects are still as good as anything today but with a better plot.

2 Predator

This is unquestionably the most entertaining,spectacular and intense arnold movies. It is better than terminator 2 because it has a better pace, it is less talky and the movie is more watchable because of that. Arnold also brings a human sensibility to his character. It is his most human and most credible character. And not to forget the wonderful and spectacular diection of John Mctiernan.

Arnold leading a group of bad ass soldiers into the jungle to take on all comers, including an alien predator has gotta be the best pure all out machismo action flick! Arnold and his team could take out any other action team from the movies, including The Expendables guys led by Stallone!

The tension in this movie reaches some remarquable heights. The scenes with the invisible predator are spectacular Schwarzenegger is more human in this movie also, more vulnerable.

My all time favourite action movie, film and Arnold movie. Could watch this over and over. Great action scenes and a great cast for commandos. Pure badass.

3 The Terminator

Not many people prefer this over Terminator 2. But I do. Amazing atmosphere and action, and of course amazing acting by Arnold, Michael Biehn and Linda Hamilton.

4 Commando

I love the movie, but man is the acting terrible! Also, it has one of the biggest movie mistakes of all time during the Porsche accident scene.

He killed more villains here like an arcade video game.

It's very stupid but the 2nd best.

So bad its great!

5 Total Recall

Arnold in space, three boobs, mutants, space soldiers, rebels, memory manipulation... best things of every other science fiction movie ever! Not to mention the sheer awesomeness of the effects for the time and Paul V. directing. Awesome sound effects and story too - keeps you thinking.

Great movie that will mess with your head and get you thinking. Not all mindless action.

Classic Arnold movie. Fun movie and great flow. Could watch over and over.

6 True Lies

"Have you ever killed anyone? "
"Yeah but they were all bad. "

Great movie!

Terrible movie, extremely overrated.

Very hard to pick, but this is my favorite.It was hard to pick against commando.

A great action flick with loads of explosions and a few good quotes from the man himself

7 Kindergarten Cop

I saw an interview of Arnold Schwarzenegger on Facebook on that TV show he said the movie he loved the most in his career was Kindergarten Cop I recently bought it on DVD watched it and I agree this is his crowning achievement in movies. Those kids and the gorgeous Penelope Ann Miller
Exceptional movie magic everything
Please add this to your collection

This movie is beautiful. terribly underrated because it is not very well known. acting is great, better than true lies( but TL is still a great movie) more realistic than totl recall, and has a better final battle than true lies and terminator combined.

This is the frist Arnie film I saw. It's now in my collection. It's a classic now.

Get's worst as I watch it today.

8 The Running Man

This movie should be on the top ten list. I mean, it's got everything you want in an action movie; It's got violence, suspence and much, much more. It's just a non-stop roller coaster ride of awesomeness

Should be much higher!

9 Conan the Barbarian

A well rooted, creative, believable yet raw portrayal of Robert E. Howards hardest hitting in creations that still echoes in all media of many genres. This has so much depth without using long discussions; instead it is portrayed and leaves you wondering. An classic among classics. One of the few movies that takes full use of Arnold's physical abilities without going overboard.

Just voted for it to be higher. Sure, Terminator, T2, Predator, and Total Recall are fine in the top five. Conan should at least be in the top 10.

Conan co low? Seriously? Propably the most iconic fantasy character deserves higher place!

10 End of Days

I am a born again Christian and one of my favorite movie scenes of all time is when Jericho (Arnold's character) is tempted by the devil in his appartment, which climaxes into the devil being thrown out the window.

An Ex-cop who runs an elite security group must stop Satan in search of a new bride

The Contenders
11 Jingle All the Way

Not just Arnold swartzeneggers best film, possibly the best film ever made
