Thriller Movie Rankings

Probably the most difficult to define, the thriller genre as I label it generally pertains to a story of suspense and usually mystery. You might think of it as the detective genre since that is what most of the movies under this heading involve. The protagonist is usually trying to solve a case and encountering danger along the way.

“ This is a gangster film with a lot of class; that is, Sean Connery's fictional character Jim Malone takes Kevin Costner's Eliot Ness to school on how to go about taking down Al Capone, played brilliantly by Robert De Niro. I love the 1930s style presented in this film. Like the hit squad formed in the movie, the film takes its share of liberties, but it's all for a good cause. ” - ctwill02-352-732724

“ While this movie is undoubtedly dated, it's still very good and frankly one of the freakiest movies I've ever seen. I'm enamored with 70s cinema and the bizarre pagan traditions of the village in this movie, so it drew me in from the beginning. But it's the climax that really just makes your eyes bug out of your head in disbelief. ” - ctwill02-352-732724

All the major players in the rap game during the 90s borrowed from this film, including No Limit and Cash Money down to naming themselves after characters in the movie.

In November 1984, the Soviet Union's best submarine captain in their newest sub violates orders and heads for the USA. Is he trying to defect or to start a war? (135 mins.)
Director: John McTiernan
“ I think submarine warfare is pretty cool, but this one just didn't interest me all that much. I'm not a big fan of Jack Ryan and the way his hunches always turn out to be right. ” - ctwill02-352-732724

Limitless (2011)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.4/10 X  
With the help of a mysterious pill that enables the user to access 100 percent of his brain abilities, a struggling writer becomes a financial wizard, but it also puts him in a new world with lots of dangers. (105 mins.)
Director: Neil Burger
“ NZT is a hell of a drug. And this is a pretty solid movie if you're just looking for an entertaining trip. As an English guy, I was very intrigued by the struggling writer plot that started the chain of events, but, by the end, it seemed to be a little too run of the mill. ” - ctwill02-352-732724

Beverly Hills Cop (1984)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.3/10 X  
A freewheeling Detroit cop pursuing a murder investigation finds himself dealing with the very different culture of Beverly Hills. (105 mins.)
Director: Martin Brest
“ This movie is a real fish out of water. It's not a great detective movie by any means, and it really isn't funny enough to be considered a comedy. The music, however, is awesome. ” - ctwill02-352-732724

Basic Instinct 2 (2006)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 4.2/10 X

Director: Gavin O'Connor
“ Has the bar been set so low in recent years that this movie gets super hyped? It's decent. You can see everything coming before it does. ” - ctwill02-352-732724

“ As is the case with all the Jack Ryan movies, this is a good film, but it does go a little too far even or this series. ” - ctwill02-352-732724

Director: Lewis Milestone
“ As much as I like the style of the Rat Pack, this movie just isn't as entertaining as I was hoping it would be. ” - ctwill02-352-732724

Duel (1971 TV Movie)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.7/10 X  
A business commuter is pursued and terrorized by the malevolent driver of a massive tractor-trailer. (90 mins.)
“ "Come on!"

Watching this movie today, it's easy to predict what's going to happen next, but only because so many other films have borrowed from this one and become more well known. This is an enjoyable thrill ride, but it does drag for long stretches at times. Still, any movie that helped launched the career of Steven Spielberg is worth watching and appreciating. ” - ctwill02-352-732724
 
72.
Public Enemies (2009)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.0/10 X  
The Feds try to take down notorious American gangsters John Dillinger, Baby Face Nelson and Pretty Boy Floyd during a booming crime wave in the 1930s. (140 mins.)
Director: Michael Mann
“ I love gangster films, but there are just too many biopics at this point for this one about Dillinger to stand out at all. ” - ctwill02-352-732724

Conspiracy Theory (1997)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.7/10 X  
A man obsessed with conspiracy theories becomes a target after one of his theories turns out to be true. Unfortunately, in order to save himself, he has to figure out which theory it is. (135 mins.)
Director: Richard Donner
“ This was decent but nothing spectacular mainly because it tried so hard to be so many different kinds of movies. Mel Gibson comes off as a comedic character rather than a hero, but the movie never goes full comedy. ” - ctwill02-352-732724
 
74.
Primal Fear (1996)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.7/10 X

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.8/10 X  
A bridge engineer and an experienced old hunter begin a hunt for two lions after they start attacking local construction workers. (110 mins.)
Director: Stephen Hopkins
“ There is nothing that special here, and that's a surprising shame. I love both of the main leads, but this movie just wasn't all there. It's a cool idea, and I'm interested in finding out more about the real events on which this is based. The movie just isn't that entertaining. ” - ctwill02-352-732724
 
77.
The Big Bird Cage (1972)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.1/10 X  
Grier and Haig are thieving mercenaries who engineer a prison break from the outside. (88 mins.)
Director: Jack Hill
“ Of all the women-in-prison films I've seen, this has to be the best. It features many of the same actors as The Big Doll House, but the story is more entertaining. I didn't have any trouble getting into this one, especially with the two stunning leads. ” - ctwill02-352-732724
 
78.
Death Proof (2007)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.1/10 X  
Two separate sets of voluptuous women are stalked at different times by a scarred stuntman who uses his "death proof" cars to execute his murderous plans. (113 mins.)
“ It's a shame that Quentin Tarantino found so much success early on that he felt he could get away with nonsense like this. Kurt Russell is the only thing this movie has going for it. All of the female characters are annoying, so seeing any of them in peril has no effect whatsoever on the audience. ” - ctwill02-352-732724
 
79.
Anaconda (1997)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 4.7/10 X  
A "National Geographic" film crew is taken hostage by an insane hunter, who takes them along on his quest to capture the world's largest - and deadliest - snake. (89 mins.)
Director: Luis Llosa
“ If this was just a movie about a gorgeous Jennifer Lopez clashing with an evil snake, it would be decent enough. Unfortunately, there are several subplots thrown in that seemed very unnecessary, from a villainous human on board to the fact that there is more than one freakishly large snake craving people. I suppose I was expecting some more explanation as to the villain's motives and the reason that no one seemed all that surprised that snakes could get that big (which they do not in real life). ” - ctwill02-352-732724

Lake Placid (1999)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.6/10 X  
Three people attempt to stop a gigantic crocodile, who is terrorizing residents in Black Lake, Maine. (82 mins.)
Director: Steve Miner
“ This is another pretty strange movie with some dark humor throughout. There are some awesome scenes with the monster, but the movie is hurt by how weird it is at times and the fact that two of the three leads are virtual unknowns. ” - ctwill02-352-732724
 
81.
No Country for Old Men (2007)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.1/10 X  
Violence and mayhem ensue after a hunter stumbles upon a drug deal gone wrong and more than two million dollars in cash near the Rio Grande. (122 mins.)
“ There isn't anything new in this award-winning movie unless you consider films with no point innovative. The villain, who seems to garner the most praise, is nothing more than a rip-off of Two-Face from Batman. Yet I have to admit that it was hard for me to look away as I kept waiting for something to happen. In that sense, it works as a thriller, but I have no problem telling you now that there is no payoff whatsoever. Tommy Lee Jones is good, but when is he not? He wasn't able to turn this one into the classic so many believe it is. I'm still waiting for someone to explain to me why they feel that way. ” - ctwill02-352-732724

The Maltese Falcon (1941)

It's 1949 Los Angeles, the city is run by gangsters and a malicious mobster, Mickey Cohen. Determined to end the corruption, John O'Mara assembles a team of cops, ready to take down the ruthless leader and restore peace to the city. (113 mins.)
Director: Ruben Fleischer
“ "You can't shoot me. You're a cop."

"Not anymore."

This movie was all style and no substance. It's almost all made up to make Mickey Cohen one of the top tier gangsters along the lines of Al Capone and Dillinger, which was he was not. I admit that I enjoyed the action, but there wasn't a whole lot behind it. ” - ctwill02-352-732724

Femme Fatale (2002)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.3/10 X  
A woman tries to straighten out her life, even as her past as a con-woman comes back to haunt her. (114 mins.)
Director: Brian De Palma
“ Two very hot scenes don't really make up for the rest of this somewhat awkward thriller. That it was half-French was kind of a turnoff. ” - ctwill02-352-732724
 
85.
Caged Fury (1990)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 3.8/10 X  
Discontent leads to a daring escape plan in a women's prison where the inmates are all lingerie clad... (95 mins.)
Director: Bill Milling
“ It's trashy, exploitative and downright ridiculous, but I'd be lying if I said it wasn't entertaining. It's really not much of a grade below Roadhouse, which is a guilty pleasure of many. I definitely took some pleasure in this. ” - ctwill02-352-732724
 
86.
The Recruit (2003)

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.1/10 X  
A young woman's world unravels when a drug prescribed by her psychiatrist has unexpected side effects. (106 mins.)
“ This one is quite the case study. I really hate most of the characters in this, but the concept is an interesting one, particularly to people in the healthcare industry. Even though many people have raved about it, it failed to elicit much of a response from me. ” - ctwill02-352-732724
 
88.
Black Swan (2010)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.0/10 X  
A committed dancer wins the lead role in a production of Tchaikovsky's "Swan Lake" only to find herself struggling to maintain her sanity. (108 mins.)
“ I was expecting a much better finale given the hype surrounding this one. It's intriguing all the way through, but it doesn't really do anything all that unique. In the end, I felt like I knew what was going to happen all along as the signs were all there. ” - ctwill02-352-732724

Snake Eyes (1998)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.0/10 X  
A shady police detective finds himself in the middle of a murder conspiracy at an important boxing match in an Atlantic City casino. (98 mins.)
Director: Brian De Palma
“ This one was built on a pretty good idea, but the execution was botched. I did like the use of multiple vantage points to tell portions of the story, but, once you know who did it (and it's pretty obvious from the start), the magic seems to wear off until the ending, which really just seems to fall flat on its face. ” - ctwill02-352-732724

Daniel Ocean recruits one more team member so he can pull off three major European heists in this sequel to Ocean's 11. (125 mins.)
“ What an utterly pointless movie. Everything they accomplished in the first movie is immediately undone, and they spend the rest of this movie accomplishing nothing. Is this supposed to be a comedy where the directors are just laughing at people for paying to see it? It's horrible. ” - ctwill02-352-732724

WarGames (1983)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.1/10 X

In the late 1960s/early 1970s, a San Francisco cartoonist becomes an amateur detective obsessed with tracking down the Zodiac Killer, an unidentified individual who terrorizes Northern California with a killing spree. (157 mins.)
Director: David Fincher
“ This movie had one of the most deceptive trailers I've ever seen. This is not a film about tracking down a killer so much as it is a film about the times. It dragged on way too long and had too few payoff moments to keep you invested. ” - ctwill02-352-732724
 
96.
Inside Man (2006)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.6/10 X

An FBI agent takes on a plane full of deadly and venomous snakes, deliberately released to kill a witness being flown from Honolulu to Los Angeles to testify against a mob boss. (105 mins.)
Director: David R. Ellis
“ The problem with the "so bad, it's good" film is that some of them are just too bad to be any good at all. Yes, Samuel L. Jackson is in the movie and yells his famous line, but, other than that, it's really not that funny of a movie. And, if you claim to watch it for the snakes, well, there are better snake movies you could choose. They aren't much better, but they definitely are better. ” - ctwill02-352-732724

Anacondas: The Hunt for the Blood Orchid (2004)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 4.6/10 X  
A scientific expedition sets out for Borneo to seek a flower called the Blood Orchid, which could grant longer life. Meanwhile, they run afoul of snakes and each other. (97 mins.)
Director: Dwight Little
“ The sequel to Anaconda is pretty awful. It feels like every dollar the producers had went to the CGI for the snakes, which, truth be told, is what the audience is coming to see. Still, you probably won't recognize a single actor in this film, making it all the more hard to care when the characters are swallowed up one by one. ” - ctwill02-352-732724
