Top 10 Leonardo DiCaprio Movies


The Top Ten

1 Inception

This is one of the best movies I have ever seen. DiCaprio's acting was great.

Mind blowing movie

Great, exceptional movie of the new decade. A mind bending movie which blends great acting, Action, Science Fiction, Adventure, Romance, Drama - roblist

As much as I loved blood diamond, this was breathtaking

2 The Departed

Nicholson, Dicaprio and Damon- Put these three in a fil with Scorsese's direction and you see the gripping, classic mob movie. And how dare anyone put this behind titanic?

How the hell can anyone put blood diamond over this CLASSIC mob movie? Man! The departed should be ranked among classics, I'm talking the godfather I and II, Goodfellas and Heat!

This is still one of my best Leonard DiCaprio movie

One of Leo's best performances, as well as the best film he's ever done without considering his character. The deep plot, powerful performances, and perfect directing make it his strongest films- his character's infiltration into the mob, perfectly capturing the anxiety and dread he fills and mastering a Boston accent makes it one of his best performances. - Cfp3157

3 Titanic

This movie is the best of all time... It makes me cry... Everything in this movie was just great... Great acting skills, music, photography, direction etc..

BEST MOVIE EVER, GREAT PLOT! He looked so handsome there and I love the plot, the acting was great, I love how old rose is telling the story, I love how at the end rose dreams or reunites in heaven with jack at the clock on titanic. I just wish he didn't die.

Nothing on Earth can rival the epic spectacle and breathtaking grandeur of Titanic, the sweeping love story that sailed into the hearts of moviegoers around the world, ultimately emerging as the most popular motion picture of all time. Leonardo DiCaprio and Oscar-nominee Kate Winslet light up the screen as Jack and Rose, the young lovers who find one another on the maiden voyage of the "unsinkable" R.M.S. Titanic. But when the doomed luxury liner collides with an iceberg in the frigid North Atlantic their passionate love affair becomes a thrilling race for survival. From acclaimed filmmaker James Cameron comes a tale of forbidden love and courage in the face of disaster that triumphs as a true cinematic masterpiece.

Titanic should be ranked as no. 1! I HAVE SEEN HIS THREE MOVIES: WOLF OF THE WALL STREET which I did not watch till the end because I'm only of 12 years and its an adult movie with loads of bad scene that sucks! ! I really couldn't believe that LEONARDO CAN DO A MOVIE LIKE THIS! ! Movie's story is alright but worst of the bad scenes are there which I would like to describe as totally a waste of time! , CATCH ME IF YOU CAN an interesting movie with an amazing story THIS MOVIE EVERYBODY SHOULD WATCH! ! Best thriller movie everr, TITANIC there were loads of tears in my eyes when I watched this movie! ! Best of course movie of leonardo... ! I can't understand why it is on no.2? It deserves number 1 best LOVE STORY EVER! ! WAITING FOR TITANIC-2 so guys please please VOTE VOTE VOTE VOTE VOTE VOTE VOTE VOTE VOTE VOTE VOTE VOTE VOTE VOTE VOTE VOTE VOTE VOTE VOTE VOTE

4 The Wolf of Wall Street

Lmao the fact that this is not number 1 worries me

The best DiCaprio we have ever seen! Congrats... He must win the oscar! And I will never forget the phone/kitchen scene! I am still laughing! One of the best scenes ever!

Lower than Titanic? hell no.

I love Inception but I'd actually list that number two because The Wolf Of Wall Street is so big. Everything you could possibly imagine is a part of this movie. Sex, drugs, money, crime and more. Very entertaining, very moving, and very inspiring. I literally wanted to be Jordan Belfort after I'd watched the whole movie!

5 Blood Diamond

Brilliant movie!

This one and the revenant are amazing and I have to say titanic is overrated

Straight perfect story, your head will not hurt to understand this movie, simple and perfect movie of caprio ever, One of the best finishing

Watch this! It is an amazing movie with a true story behind it, the conflict diamonds in Africa are still happening today, and this is one movie that definitely shows off Leo's acting skills!

6 Django Unchained

This is a bloody awesome movie! +9
Django Unchained is an amazing movie. lots of action and awesome scenes plus an entire scene improvised by Dicaprio which involved him slicing his hand and then improvising uses his own spilt blood into the scene by wiping it on the actress Kerry Washington's face with his own blood out of his very hand. This movie is an amazing Drama+1
How can you not like a movie with Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Leonardo Dicaprio, Kerry Washington, and Samuel L. Jackson. directed by Quentin Tarantino - bawchikawaowao+1
One of my favorite movies of all time! new

7 Shutter Island

I really cannot choose what film of dicaprio is the best! All of his movies I believe that are awesome! I love inception, titanic, the departed, the blood diamond, the aviator and more but I choose the shutter island for only one reason. Leonardo's acting was EXCELLENT, AWESOME, GREAT! I'm speechless of his performance! Congratulations Mr. Dicaprio... You are one of the BEST actors out there! Thank you of making that great movies and performances!

Perfect in every way - Honeybe

His acting kept me on the edge of my seat, I can watch this wonderful performance and continue to be captivated by the mystery.

The best of Leo's acting can be witnessed here, great screenplay. This is the best mystery thriller. You imagine a better thriller than this. Ultimate storyline, director has done a tremendous job. Every Leo fan must watch it. I like this more than inception. This must be in the first place. This deserves to be number 1

8 Catch Me If You Can

Best dicaprio movie

Amazing in so many ways

All emotions are felt in this movie, and that is because of leo's exceptional acting skills. Humor, hate, acceptance, love, friendship and betrayal. Such an amazing movie, I will never forget this

Loved it.

9 The Revenant

You cannot take your eyes away from this masterpiece. You feel like you are actually there... That bear scene is already a classic scene! Also Dicaprio offers us his best performance! While you are watching this movie you cannot recognise Dicaprio, you see only Hugh Glass and that is real acting. He absolutely deserves the oscar this year and he will win it. My favorite performance by him. Finally we don't need to talk about the direction, cinematography, costumes,make-up and of course Hardy, all perfect.

The one defining reason that this movie should be in the top 3, is because he finally after all the excellent performances he finally got the oscar. Not saying this is one of his best movies would just be ridiculous

By far the best of Leo's films! A true masterpiece.

Fantastic movie, fantastic acting from DiCaprio.

10 The Great Gatsby

Just Perfect

The Great Gatsby is the most amazing movie I've ever seen with Leonardo DiCaprio! I loved the plot, I loved the scene. The movie has so much passion, romance and a lot more. BEST MOVIE EVER

Dicaprio did it again!

This movie is great. Close to number 1 with titanic


The Contenders

11 What's Eating Gilbert Grape

Loved this movie. Very heartwarming.

His performance in this movie was astonishing, people really thought he was an autistic actor. He overshadowed Depp in one of his first, if not debut movie.

Amazing performance and at such a young age. This should definitely be in his top three performances.

It is hard to match the performance for the realistic role he played in this film.

12 Gangs of New York

I like it

I love this movie... Ever

This movie was captivating from start to finish

Great movie Leonardo's acting was good in movie and he looked perfect cowboy and Cameron and Leonardo romance were good.Good story of New York I love this movie

13 The Aviator

How is this not at the top? This is awesome movie - shaileshjoshi

Good story, but in The Aviator Leo is sublime. For me in this movie is for Oscar. Why? Because in life I want believe a miracole, for me this life is fire creation and Leo live perfect this ideal. He us such a brilliant actor, but I cannot describe what this genius feel:love, dream, ideal, lucidity, light, universe, model of word, master in art, majestic, unlimited fire creations, one word: THIS IS LIFE!

This movie is AMAZING! How can you not like it?

Extremely impressed by Leo's acting in this movie. Absolutely on spot! And great film overall, as well (particularly Cate Blanchett as Katharine Hepburn)

14 The Beach

I agree, we always do the same thing and bring the comforts of home with us. The soundtrack is beautiful and reminds me of memories from summer time. I hope I find my paradise! :-)

Good book, good film
And he looks hot as hell
And it's a danny boyle film so it deserves to be up there too. Great moby song as the soundtrack and the element of truth that we do go abroad and wind up doing the same

This movie made me really happy, I don't know why but it was really good just watch it you have too!

Legendary movie. Has such a deep meaning in it. MUST WATCH!

15 William Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet

The BEST movie ever with Leonardo Dicaprio in it! My all time favorite movie. He was the perfect actor for this role and I really thought he embraced his character Romeo very well. Everything about this movie was amazing and it's in my top 5 of all time favorite movies

I love all of leonardo dicaprio's movies but his performance in William Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet just blew me away. This phenomenon is a touching, heart wrenching movie Which had me fixated from the get go. I definitely recommend it.

This film is amazing and left me in tears I think you have to understand Shakespeare's language to really get into the film but the plot is beautiful as well as leonardo dicaprio in Romeo and Juliet

Incredible movie and terrific performances by both Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes as well as all of the supporting cast. One of the better Shakespeare adaptations around and most certainly one of the best Romeo and Juliet adaptations!

16 This Boy's Life

Convincing acting as always by Leo but this movie depressed the hell out of me. The Basketball Diaries was not great, but was significantly better than this. - ParasN2000

His performance in this film is quite something. His portrayal of bullied by his stepfather (Robert De Niro) is utterly convincing. It makes me cry throughout because you can feel the sheer frustration in him that can only come from being a truly great actor. - Britgirl

HOw could this not be on the top?

Should be top 10! Great Movie! Great Acting! I think this has got to be the best acting Iv seen from Leo and despite so early in his career!

17 Revolutionary Road

One of Leonardo DiCaprio's most underrated movies. Excellent film, though, and both Leo and Kate's acting just blew me away!

I actually felt it better than titanic...

They are both amazing actors and this was a great film!

Who was imagining Frank and April as Jack and Rose

21 J. Edgar

Brilliant what an actor!

It is amazing how Leonardo can play a 18 year old and a 60 year old at age 40 also a great performance and I think it should be at the top of this list!
