Top Ten Morgan Freeman Movies


The Top Ten

1 The Shawshank Redemption

Best film ever made and Freeman's performance is amazing - Fabio-Fabulous-of-swag-town

My favourite movie ever

Definitely the best performance by the man himself

Lean on me should be tied with Shawshank for #1. Both are superb.

4 Million Dollar Baby

This definitely should be higher. Great movie.

5 Unforgiven
6 Street Smart
7 Batman Begins
8 The Dark Knight Rises
9 Driving Miss Daisy

Should be in top 5. of course people here not looking his acting talent

10 Glory

The Contenders

11 The Lego Movie

One of Go- I mean Morgan Freeman's funniest roles, a blind wizard who has lines like "I know that sounds like a cat poster, but it's true"

He plays a hilarious role here, and this is by far one of his best movies. And I know what you guys r thinking. Oh Lego so dorky, but this barely focuses on the idea the movie is about Legos. It's a hilarious comedy

Exactly love this movie #riseofthelego

12 Bruce Almighty
13 The Bucket List

2 Brilliant Actors, Many Amazing Bucket list tasks, 1 awesome Concept, 1 Hell of a great movie!

An epic movie..everyone should watch!

14 Evan Almighty


15 Deep Impact
16 Lean on Me

Great movie! He was the main actor/focus of the film, not a role player or co-star like all the movies above. Great talent, he makes everything look so easy.

17 Wanted
18 Gone Baby Gone
19 Along Came a Spider

Great movie. It is full of suspense, vengeance, greed, action, and an amazing twist at the end that made this movie very enjoyable, and an instant classic.

20 Nurse Betty

Morgan Freeman, Chris Rock, Renee Zellweger, I love this movie.

21 Invictus
22 Unleashed

I was flipping channels on T.V. one night when I came upon this fantastic movie. It was based on "Danny, the Dog, a martial arts action thriller. Also stars and was produced by Jet Li.

23 March of the Penguins
24 Kiss the Girls
25 Dreamcatcher
26 High Crimes
27 Chain Reaction
28 The Sum of All Fears
29 Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves
30 Dolphin Tale
31 Amistad
32 Now You See Me
33 Now You See Me 2
34 Lucky Number Slevin
35 Hard Rain

For the most part, it’s a forgettable, and not the best movie at all with Morgan Freeman, but his performance was one of the only things that stuck out. It was one of his best performances.
