Greatest Nicolas Cage Movies

The Top Ten
1 Raising Arizona

Seriously, this one should be number one.

2 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.

So what happens when you put overactor number one (John Travolta) and overactor number two (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 was so good. It's not really my kind of movie, but I am so glad that I saw it.

3 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!

"I couldn't think of a more horrible job if I wanted to, and you have to do it. You have to, or I'll fire you. Do you understand?"

4 The Rock

Great movie with a good cast and an action-filled plotline. The movie itself was actually believable. Nothing really crazy happened and it surprisingly had a good amount of humor.

5 National Treasure

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

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

Love Cage in the '80s, the '90s, and the 2000s. However, his last couple have not been up to Cage criteria, in my opinion!

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

6 Mandy
7 Con Air

How is this only ninth? 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?

Oh my God, I love this movie so much. Nick was such a badass in this. If you have not seen it, go find it. It's so good.

Not the best, but should be in the top 5.

8 Ghost Rider

One of my favorite superhero movies. It's way better than the second movie. It's also one of the only superhero movies that I liked enough to watch multiple times.

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

9 Adaptation

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

10 Kick-Ass

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

The Contenders
11 Snake Eyes
12 Gone in 60 Seconds

It's got humor and action, like Fast and Furious.

13 Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans

An awesome film with a masterful performance from Cage.

14 Leaving Las Vegas

How in hell is this not number one? Not only the best Nicolas Cage movie, but one of the best movies ever!

P.S.: Adaptation is also incredible and deserves to be at number two.

15 Kiss of Death

He was the ultimate villain in the film! Awesome crime flick.

16 City of Angels
17 National Treasure 2: Book of Secrets

Best movie ever, freaking amazing.

18 The Wicker Man
19 Matchstick Men

"Hey buddy, ever heard of a line?"
"Hey, ever been dragged to the sidewalk and beaten 'till you...

20 Valley Girl
21 Wild at Heart
22 World Trade Center
23 Ghost Rider Spirit of Vengeance
24 Lord of War
25 Knowing

Brilliance. Don't see how it isn't number 1.
