Tom Cruise Movies

 

We present to you all Tom cruise movies of all time both old to new.

 

1] “The Last Samurai” (2003)

"The Last Samurai" (2003)
“The Last Samurai” (2003)

One  of the best Tom cruise movies . Cruise stars as an American soldier in 19th-century Japan who embraces the Samurai culture. The movie went on to receive four Oscar nominations, but it’s one of those titles where if you’ve seen it once, you’ve seen it enough. And on a side note: Wow would this movie get hammered on social media if it came out today.

Critics Consensus: With high production values and thrilling battle scenes, The Last Samurai is a satisfying epic.

Synopsis: Edward Zwick returned to the director’s chair for the first time since 1998’s The Siege with this sweeping period drama…

Starring: Tom Cruise, Ken Watanabe, Billy Connolly, Timothy Spall
Directed By: Edward Zwick

2]”Rock of Ages” (2012)

Rock of ages
Rock of ages

Tom Cruise movies  “Rock of Ages.” Warner Bros.
Somehow Cruise got roped into being part of this feature-film adaptation of the hit Broadway musical. But leave it to him to lay it all out there. Cruise provides its only memorable moments when his rock-star character belts out classic songs like “Pour Some Sugar on Me” and “Wanted Dead or Alive.

Critics Consensus: Its exuberant silliness is almost enough to make up for its utter inconsequential, but Rock of Ages is ultimately too bland and overlong to justify its trip to the big screen.

Synopsis: Rock of Ages tells the story of small town girl Sherrie and city boy Drew, who meet on the Sunset.

Starring: Julianne Hough, Diego Boneta, Tom Cruise, Russell Brand

Director: Adam Shankman

3]”Jack Reacher: Never Go Back” (2016)

Tom Cruise movie “Jack Reacher: Never Go Back.” Focus World
Between “Mission: Impossible” movies, Cruise tried to kick off another action franchise by bringing the main character of the Lee Child novel series to the big screen. Though the first movie just got over the $300 million mark at the worldwide box office, the performance (or lack thereof) by the sequel proved no one wanted any more Mr. Reacher. It barely made $163 million worldwide.

Critics Consensus: Monotonously formulaic, Jack Reacher: Never Go Back is one action thriller sequel whose title also serves as a warning.

Synopsis: Tom Cruise returns as Jack Reacher in this sequel based on Lee Child’s bestselling novel Never Go Back, which finds..

Starring: Tom Cruise, Cobie Smulders, Danika Yarosh, Patrick Heusinger

Director: Edward Zwick

4]”The Mummy” (2017)

Annabelle Wallis and Tom Cruise movies “The Mummy.” Universal
Cruise was all set to be the Robert Downey Jr. of Universal’s Dark Universe with the release of this movie and promises of more creature pictures to come. But playing a soldier of fortune who tries to stop an ancient Egyptian princess from taking over the world didn’t grab audiences. It was another franchise not meant to be.

Critics Consensus: Lacking the campy fun of the franchise’s most recent entries and failing to deliver many monster-movie thrills, The Mummy suggests a speedy unraveling for the Dark Universe.

Synopsis: Tom Cruise headlines a spectacular, all-new cinematic version of the legend that has fascinated cultures all over the world since.

Starring: Tom Cruise, Russell Crowe, Annabelle Wallis, Sofia Boutella

Director: Alex Kurtzman

5]”Endless Love” (1981)

"Endless Love" (1981)
“Endless Love” (1981)

Tom Cruise movies “Endless Love.” Universal Pictures
Cruise’s first appearance in a movie is this 1980s teen romance drama starring Brooke Shields that’s best known for giving us the Diana Ross/Lionel Richie title song.Cruise gets a brief bit of screen time as one of the male lead’s friends. It’s quite forgettable.

Critics Consensus: Love is good when both partners loves each other , Though love is wicked.

Synopsis: Based on a novel by Scott Spencer, Endless Love details the doomed romance between 17-year-old David (Martin Hewitt) and 15-years

Starring: Brooke Shields, Martin Hewitt, Shirley Knight, Don Murray

Director: Franco Zeffirelli

6] “Losin’ It” (1983)

"Losin' It" (1983)
“Losin’ It” (1983)

John Stockwell and Tom Cruise movie “Losin’ It.” Embassy Pictures Corporation Still getting his legs under him in the movie biz, Cruise signed onto this teen comedy where he’s one of four friends who go on a hard-partying road trip to Tijuana in hopes of losing their virginity. Yes, even Cruise couldn’t hide from the teen-sex-comedy genre when he started his career.

Critics Consensus:N/O

Synopsis: Tom Cruise leads a group of teens across the border into Tijuana to lose their virginity in this sex farce… [More]

Starring: Tom Cruise, Jackie Earle Haley, John Stockwell, Shelley Long

Director: Curtis Hanson

7] “Oblivion” (2013)

"Oblivion" (2013)
“Oblivion” (2013)

Tom Cruise in “Oblivion.” from Universal Pictures
Here, Cruise attempted to go the sci-fi route in hopes of having a breakthrough “Minority Report”-like experience for the audience. But the story was nowhere as sharp, and its post-apocalyptic vibe left us all feeling disinterested.

Critics Consensus: Visually striking but thinly scripted, Oblivion benefits greatly from its strong production values and an excellent performance from Tom Cruise.

Synopsis: Tom Cruise stars in Oblivion, an original and groundbreaking cinematic event from the visionary director of TRON: Legacy and producers.

Starring: Tom Cruise, Olga Kurylenko, Morgan Freeman, Andrea Riseborough

Director: Joseph Kosinski

8] “Lions for Lambs” (2007)

"Lions for Lambs" (2007)
“Lions for Lambs” (2007)

Tom Cruise movie “Lions for Lambs.
Marking the first movie released by United Artists after Cruise and his producing partner Paula Wagner took over (the two left UA after a couple of years) was “Lions for Lambs,” a tense drama set around the war in Afghanistan and directed by Robert Redford. Cruise gave his all playing an agenda-pushing senator and has some strong scenes opposite Meryl Streep. But the movie is just dull.

Critics Consensus: Despite its powerhouse cast, Lions for Lambs feels like a disjointed series of lectures, rather than a sharp narrative, and ends up falling flat.

Synopsis: Two determined students at a West Coast University, Arian and Ernest, follow the inspiration of their idealistic professor, Dr. Malley.

Starring: Robert Redford, Meryl Streep, Tom Cruise, Michael Peña

Director: Robert Redford

9] “Far and Away” (1992)

"Far and Away" (1992)
“Far and Away” (1992)

Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise movie “Far and Away.” from Universal Pictures Cruise and his wife at the time, Nicole Kidman, paired together on screen for the first time in this 1890s-set epic directed by Ron Howard. The two play Irish immigrants seeking a fortune in America. Outside of the lush photography, there isn’t much to enjoy about this movie. And don’t get me started on Cruise’s awful Irish accent.

Critics Consensus: Handsome and simplistic, Far and Away has the beauty of an American epic without the breadth.

Synopsis: In this epic Ron Howard film, Joseph Donelly (Tom Cruise) is an impoverished 19th-century Irish tenant farmer who has recently.

Starring: Tom Cruise, Nicole Kidman, Thomas Gibson, Robert Prosky

Director: Ron Howard

10]”Vanilla Sky” (2001)

"Vanilla Sky" (2001)
“Vanilla Sky” (2001)

Penélope Cruz and Tom Cruise movie “Vanilla Sky.” Paramount Pictures
At the tail end of Cruise’s heartthrob phase, the director Cameron Crowe teamed with him again after their hugely successful collaboration on “Jerry Maguire” to make a very different love story.

Based on the Spanish movie “Open Your Eyes,” Cruise plays a vain New York City media playboy who has a different outlook on life after being in a horrific car accident. Though Cruise, Cameron Diaz, and Penélope Cruz (who also starred in “Open Your Eyes”) all give top performances, Crowe goes too weird with the story, leaving viewers out in the void by the time the movie gets into the home stretch.

Critics Consensus: An ambitious mix of genres, Vanilla Sky collapses into an incoherent jumble. Cruise’s performance lacks depth, and it’s hard to feel sympathy for his narcissistic character.

Synopsis: A remake of the Spanish film Open Your Eyes (1997), this thriller from director Cameron Crowe bears one of several.

Starring: Tom Cruise, Penelope Cruz, Cameron Diaz, Kurt Russell

Director: Cameron Crowe

11] “American Made” (2017)

"American Made" (2017)
“American Made” (2017)

Tom Cruise and Sarah Wright movie “American Made.” Universal Pictures
Mixing action and dark comedy in telling the real-life story of the drug runner Barry Seal seemed like a nice pivot for Cruise, but at the end of the day, director Doug Liman’s movie is just too glossy to be taken seriously. (Accent update: Cruise delivers a tolerable Southern drawl.)

Critics Consensus: American Made’s fast-and-loose attitude with its real-life story mirrors the cavalier — and delightfully watchable — energy Tom Cruise gives off in the leading role.

Synopsis: Barry Seal, a TWA pilot, is recruited by the CIA to provide reconnaissance on the burgeoning communist threat in Central.

Starring: Tom Cruise, Domhnall Gleeson, Sarah Wright, Jesse Plemons

Director: Doug Liman

12] “Valkyrie” (2008)

"Valkyrie" (2008)
“Valkyrie” (2008)

Tom Cruise movie “Valkyrie.
Another release from the time Cruise was calling the shots at UA, “Valkyrie” sees him playing one of the rogue Nazi officers who attempt to assassinate Adolf Hitler.Basically most of the other Nazi officers — decided to not even bother with a German accent. Good choice; the audience didn’t even notice [holds back giggles.

Critics Consensus: Given the subject matter, Valkyrie could have been an outstanding historical thriller, but settles for being a mildly entertaining, but disposable yarn.

Synopsis: A proud military man, Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg is a loyal officer who serves his country all the while hoping.

Starring: Tom Cruise, Kenneth Branagh, Bill Nighy, Tom Wilkinson

Director: Bryan Singer

13] “Taps” (1981)

13] "Taps" (1981)
13] “Taps” (1981)

Tom Cruise movie “Taps.” 20th Century Fox
Unlike in “Endless Love,” Cruise really capitalized on this small role. As a military cadet who takes his responsibilities way too seriously, Cruise is a standout in the movie and showed audiences (and Hollywood executives) that he had leading-man potential.

Critics Consensus: N/o.

Synopsis: When an exclusive military school is threatened with demolition by a rapacious real-estate company, the students take drastic action. Utilizing.

Starring: Timothy Hutton, George C. Scott, Ronny Cox, Sean Penn

Director: Harold Becker

14]”Knight and Day” (2010)

"Knight and Day" (2010)
“Knight and Day” (2010)

Cameron Diaz and Tom Cruise movie “Knight and Day.” Fox
This is one of those movies that doesn’t get enough credit. Director James Mangold cleverly takes all the common action-hero traits and has Cruise make complete fun of them. You might want to give this one another viewing

Critics Consensus: It’s pure formula, but thanks to its breezy pace and a pair of charming performances from Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz, Knight and Day offers some agreeably middle-of-the-road summer action.

Synopsis: A single girl en route to a family wedding gets swept up in a fight between a rogue government agent.

Starring: Tom Cruise, Cameron Diaz, Peter Sarsgaard, Viola Davis

Director : James Mangold

15]”War of the Worlds” (2005)

"War of the Worlds" (2005)
“War of the Worlds” (2005)

Tom Cruise and Dakota Fanning movie “War of the Worlds.” Paramount Pictures Steven Spielberg teamed up with Cruise after “Minority Report” for this blockbuster remake of the classic sci-fi movie. Though it made a lot of money, it was extremely dark in tone — maybe a little too dark. Be honest, have you wanted to see this movie again?

Critics Consensus: Steven Spielberg’s adaptation of War of the Worlds delivers on the thrill and paranoia of H.G. Wells’ classic novel while impressively updating the action and effects for modern audiences.

Synopsis: This is a contemporary retelling of H.G. Wells’ seminal sci-fi classic. The adventure/thriller reveals humankind’s extraordinary battle against an extra-terrestrial.

Starring: Tom Cruise, Dakota Fanning, Justin Chatwin, Miranda Otto

Director: Steven Spielberg

16]”Cocktail” (1988)

"Cocktail" (1988)
“Cocktail” (1988)

Elisabeth Shue and Tom Cruise movie “Cocktail.” Buena Vista Pictures
It’s one of the movies in Cruise’s career that rides fully on his good looks. Honestly, this movie should have just been titled “Sex.” Cruise plays a hot New York City bartender who has dreams of making it big, and it’s his hotness that’s going to get him to the top. It’s classic Hot Guy Cruise — who cares that the story is garbage.

Critics Consensus: There are no surprises in Cocktail, a shallow, dramatically inert romance that squanders Tom Cruise’s talents in what amounts to a naive barkeep’s banal fantasy.

Synopsis: After being discharged from the Army, Brian Flanagan (Tom Cruise) moves back to Queens and takes a job in a.

Starring: Tom Cruise, Bryan Brown, Elisabeth Shue, Lisa Banes

Director: Roger Donaldson

17]”Mission: Impossible III” (2006)

"Mission: Impossible III" (2006)
“Mission: Impossible III” (2006)

Tom Cruise and Michelle Monaghan movie “Mission: Impossible III.” Paramount PicturesJ.J. Abrams takes over the franchise for this one and does an impressive job. It also helps that you have the talents of Philip Seymour Hoffman playing the villain. It’s better than “Mission: Impossible II,” so we’re going in the right direction.

Critics Consensus: Fast-paced, with eye-popping stunts and special effects, the latest Mission: Impossible installment delivers everything an action fan could ask for. A thrilling summer popcorn flick.

Synopsis: The third entry in Tom Cruise’s Mission: Impossible film series involves super Impossible Mission Forces (IMF) agent Ethan Hunt (Cruise).

Starring: Tom Cruise, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Ving Rhames, Billy Crudup

Director: J.J. Abrams

18]The Outsiders” (1983)

The Outsiders" (1983)
The Outsiders” (1983)

Francis Ford Coppola cast the heck out of “The Outsiders.” Warner Brothers Francis Ford Coppola’s adaptation of the classic novel brought all the biggest names from young Hollywood together, and Cruise was right there in the mix. With Matt Dillon, Ralph Macchio, Patrick Swayze, C. Thomas Howell, Emilio Estevez, and Rob Lowe, the movie is pretty heavy-handed with the drama, but it’s fun to watch all these amazing talents on screen together.

Critics Consensus: The cracks continue to show in Coppola’s directorial style, but The Outsiders remains a blustery, weird, and fun adaptation of the classic novel.

Synopsis: Teen rivalry in a small Southern town sets the stage for this dramatic interpretation of the novel by S.E. Hinton.

Starring: C. Thomas Howell, Matt Dillon, Ralph Macchio, Patrick Swayze

Director: Francis Ford Coppola, Stephen H. Burum

19]”Edge of Tomorrow” (2014)

"Edge of Tomorrow" (2014)
“Edge of Tomorrow” (2014)

Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt movie “Edge of Tomorrow.” Warner Bros.
Whether you want to call it “Edge of Tomorrow” or “Live. Die. Repeat.,” it’s just a really great action movie. With Liman directing and McQuarrie as a screenwriter, Cruise is surrounded by people he trusts to make a risky project: a soldier who relives the same day. But the MVP of the movie is Emily Blunt, who delivers a performance that makes Cruise kick it up a few notches.

Critics Consensus: Gripping, well-acted, funny, and clever, Edge of Tomorrow offers entertaining proof that Tom Cruise is still more than capable of shouldering the weight of a blockbuster action thriller.

Synopsis: The epic action of “Edge of Tomorrow” unfolds in a near future in which an alien race has hit the..

Starring: Tom Cruise, Emily Blunt, Bill Paxton, Jonas Armstrong

Directed By: Doug Liman

20]”Top Gun” (1986)

"Top Gun" (1986)
“Top Gun” (1986)

Tom Cruise movies “Top Gun” yep, that’s Tim Robbins behind him.from Paramount Pictures Before “Days of Thunder,” Cruise and Tony Scott teamed up for what would become one of the actor’s most iconic roles: playing the fighter pilot Maverick. What Cruise doesn’t pull off acting-wise he makes up for with brooding looks and shirtless volleyball skills. We are counting the days until we see the sequel at the end of the year.

Critics Consensus: Though it features some of the most memorable and electrifying aereial footage shot with an expert eye for action, Top Gun offers too little for non-adolescent viewers to chew on when its characters aren’t in the air.

Synopsis: Devil-may-care navy pilot Pete Mitchell (Tom Cruise) is sent to Miramar Naval Air Station for advanced training. Here he vies

Starring: Tom Cruise, Kelly McGillis, Anthony Edwards, Val Kilmer

Director: Tony Scott

21]”Rain Man” (1988)

"Rain Man" (1988)
“Rain Man” (1988)

Dustin Hoffman and Tom Cruise movies “Rain Man.” United Artists
Always at his best when he’s playing a character with major conflict, Cruise plays a guy always looking to capitalize on the angles until he’s finally in a situation where he has to be on the level: building a relationship with his autistic savant brother (Dustin Hoffman).

Critics Consensus: This road-trip movie about an autistic savant and his callow brother is far from seamless, but Barry Levinson’s direction is impressive, and strong performances from Tom Cruise and Dustin Hoffman add to its appeal.

Synopsis: Self-centered, avaricious Californian Charlie Babbitt (Tom Cruise) is informed that his long-estranged father has died. Expecting at least a portion.

Starring: Dustin Hoffman, Tom Cruise, Valeria Golino, Gerald R. Molen

Directed By: Barry Levinson

22]”Jerry Maguire” (1996)

Tom Cruise movies “Jerry Maguire.” Sony Pictures Releasing
Receiving a best-actor nomination for his performance as a slick sports agent whose life turns upside down after having a moment of clarity, Cruise was, thanks to this movie, at his height of stardom and power in Hollywood.

Critics Consensus: Anchored by dazzling performances from Tom Cruise, Cuba Gooding Jr., and Renée Zellweger, as well as Cameron Crowe’s tender direction, Jerry Maguire meshes romance and sports with panache.

Synopsis: Jerry Maguire is a man who knows the score. As a top agent at Sports Management International, Jerry is unquestionably.

Starring: Tom Cruise, Cuba Gooding Jr., Renée Zellweger, Kelly Preston

Directed By: Cameron Crowe

A Few Good Men" (1992)
A Few Good Men” (1992)

Tom Cruise in movies .” “A Few Good Men“/Columbia Pictures Corporation Rob ReFew Good Meniner’s courtroom drama has Cruise going up against Jack Nicholson, and it’s pure magic. Yes, there’s the “can’t handle the truth” scene, but for us, it starts earlier in the movie when both characters meet for the first time. Thanks to the incredible dialogue by Aaron Sorkin, both actors subtly trade-off with each other, but it’s the fire being held back that makes the ending when they are face-to-face again so memorable.

Critics Consensus: An old-fashioned courtroom drama with a contemporary edge, A Few Good Men succeeds on the strength of its stars, with Tom Cruise, Demi Moore, and especially Jack Nicholson delivering powerful performances that more than compensate for the predictable plot.

Synopsis: A fast-talking, charming Navy defense attorney must prove that a pair of Marines are innocent of murdering a fellow fighter…

Starring: Tom Cruise, Jack Nicholson, Demi Moore, Kevin Bacon

Directed By: Rob Reiner

24]”Magnolia” (1999)

"Magnolia" (1999)
“Magnolia” (1999)

Tom Cruise movies “Magnolia.” New Line Cinema
No matter what you think of Paul Thomas Anderson’s epic look at family, love, and forgiveness, it’s hard to dispute that it has Cruise’s most powerful performance of his career. Playing a pick-up artist who uses his talents to build a public-speaking career, Cruise is like we’ve never seen him before. Anderson and Cruise connected over dealing with the loss of their fathers, and use that darkness to create the character of Frank T. J. Mackey.

Critics Consensus: Critics say Magnolia is an ambitious, lengthy work that ultimately succeeds due to the interesting stories and excellent ensemble performances.

Synopsis: An intriguing and entertaining study in characters going through varying levels of crisis and introspection. This psychological drama leads you.

Starring: Tom Cruise, Jason Robards, Julianne Moore, Melinda Dillon

Directed By: Paul Thomas Anderson

26]The Color of Money” (1986)

The Color of Money" (1986)
The Color of Money” (1986)

Tom cruise Paul Newman and Tom Cruise movies “The Color of Money.” Buena Vista Distribution Paul Newman won only one Oscar in his iconic career, and it was for this movie. But you have to give a big assist to Cruise.Playing the protégé to the pool player “Fast Eddie” Felson — the role Newman first played in 1961’s “The Hustler” — Cruise is a cocky player, and you can never tell whether he’s on the level with Felson. Cruise proved once again that he’s more than just a pretty face.

Critics Consensus: That it’s inferior to the original goes without saying, but Paul Newman and Tom Cruise are a joy to watch, and Martin Scorsese’s direction is typically superb.

Synopsis: Oscar-nominated in 1961 for his performance as pool hustler Fast Eddie Felson in The Hustler, Paul Newman won that award.

Starring: Paul Newman, Tom Cruise, Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, Helen Shaver

Directed By: Martin Scorse

27]”Born on the Fourth of July” (1989)

"Born on the Fourth of July" (1989)
“Born on the Fourth of July” (1989)

Tom Cruise movies “Born on the Fourth of July.
Cruise got an Oscar nomination for his portrayal of the veteran and activist Ron Kovic, who was paralyzed fighting in Vietnam. Oliver Stone traces Kovic’s journey from being a wide-eyed soldier thinking he’s doing what’s right for America to coming home from the war to find everything has changed. Including how he views his own country.
Cruise has never been better as he delivers a tour de force performance that still gives us chills.

Critics Consensus: Led by an unforgettable performance from Tom Cruise, Born on the Fourth of July finds director Oliver Stone tackling thought-provoking subject matter with ambitious élan.

Synopsis: The second of three films by co-writer/director Oliver Stone to explore the effects of the Vietnam War (Platoon and Heaven

Starring: Tom Cruise, Kyra Sedgwick, Caroline Kava, Willem Dafoe

Directed By: Oliver Stone

28]”Interview with the Vampire” (1994)

"Interview with the Vampire" (1994)
“Interview with the Vampire” (1994)

Tom Cruise movie “Interview with the Vampire.” Warner Bros.
Cruise gives one of his best performances as Lestat, a vampire from the 1700s who finds a lot of drama in his undead life once he recruits Louis (Brad Pitt). (Accent update: His little hint of a French accent to stay true to the character’s portrayal in the classic Anne Rice book is perfectly subtle.)

Critics Consensus: Despite lacking some of the book’s subtler shadings, and suffering from some clumsy casting, Interview with a Vampire benefits from Neil Jordan’s atmospheric direction and a surfeit of gothic thrills.

Synopsis: Anne Rice’s best-selling romantic horror tale about the origins of a centuries-old vampire inspired this popular, atmospheric chiller. One of.

Starring: Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt, Christian Slater, Kirsten Dunst

Directed By: Neil Jordan

29]”Mission: Impossible” (1996)

"Mission: Impossible" (1996)
“Mission: Impossible” (1996)

Tom Cruise in “Mission: Impossible.” Paramount Pictures
Boy have things changed since the first “Mission: Impossible.” With De Palma at the helm, the movie had its action, but it was encased in a tense whodunit thriller. Since then the action has only gotten bigger (and the story, well, less of a concern), But Cruise has always been fantastic as Hunt. The first movie is his best acting work of the franchise. (Accent update: Cruise delivers another Southern accent while disguised at the beginning of the movie — one of those classic face-rip-off disguises. It’s brief but effective in the scene.)

Critics Consensus: Full of special effects, Brian DePalma’s update of Mission: Impossible has a lot of sweeping spectacle, but the plot is sometimes convoluted.

Synopsis: After he is framed for the death of several colleagues and falsely branded a traitor, a secret agent embarks on.

Starring: Tom Cruise, Jon Voight, Emmanuelle Béart, Henry Czerny

Directed By: Brian DePalma

30]”Risky Business” (1983)

"Risky Business" (1983)
“Risky Business” (1983)

Tom Cruise movies “Risky Business.” Warner Bros. Pictures
It’s the movie that made Cruise a star. The coming-of-age story doesn’t shy away from its mature storyline, and Cruise delivers a playful performance but also shows sparks of his dramatic chops that he’ll showcase in the decade to come.

Critics Consensus: Featuring one of Tom Cruise’s best early performances, Risky Business is a sharp, funny examination of teen angst that doesn’t stop short of exploring dark themes.

Synopsis: Risky Business is the film in which 19-year-old Tom Cruise dances around his living room in his underwear. He does…

Starring: Tom Cruise, Rebecca De Mornay, Joe Pantoliano, Richard Masur

Directed By: Paul Brickman

31]”Days of Thunder” (1990)

"Days of Thunder" (1990)
“Days of Thunder” (1990)

Tom Cruise movies “Days of Thunder.” from Paramount Pictures
It’s pretty much everything you would think would be in a Tony Scott movie: lots of fast cars and big egos. Cruise is in his glory in every scene playing the hot-shot Nascar driver Cole Trickle (and Kidman is back as his love interest).

Critics Consensus: Days of Thunder has Tom Cruise and plenty of flash going for it, but they aren’t enough to compensate for the stock plot, two-dimensional characters, and poorly written dialogue.

Synopsis: The Top Gun team of producers Don Simpson and Jerry Bruckheimer, director Tony Scott, and superstar Tom Cruise reunite for.

Starring: Tom Cruise, Robert Duvall, Nicole Kidman, Randy Quaid

Directed By: Tony Scott

32]”Eyes Wide Shut” (1999)

"Eyes Wide Shut" (1999)
“Eyes Wide Shut” (1999)

Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise movies “Eyes Wide Shut.” Warner Bros.
Cruise and Kidman teamed up again, but this time under the watch of Stanley Kubrick in what would be his final movie. Both actors are pushed to the limits as the movie explores a marriage at a crossroads. Though “Eyes Wide Shut” is not close to Kubrick’s best work, Cruise and Kidman are riveting on screen.

Critics Consensus: Kubrick’s intense study of the human psyche yields an impressive cinematic work.

Synopsis: After learning of his wife’s flirtatious behavior, Dr. William Harford goes on an odyssey of his own.

Starring: Tom Cruise, Nicole Kidman, Sydney Pollack, Marie Richardson

Directed By: Stanley Kubrick

33] “Legend” (1985)

"Legend" (1985)
“Legend” (1985)

Mia Sara and Tom Cruise in “Legend.” from Universal Pictures
Ridley Scott’s beautiful fantasy movie is still a marvel of moviemaking. The practical effects and production design put into this movie, made back when CGI was scarce, are a treasure. And at the center is a fresh-faced Cruise who tries to get his girl back from the villain who gave me the most nightmares as a kid, Darkness (played perfectly by Tim Curry).

Critics Consensus: Not even Ridley Scott’s gorgeously realized set pieces can save Legend from its own tawdry tale — though it may be serviceable for those simply looking for fantasy eye candy.

Synopsis: A peasant hero battles a demonic underworld prince who seeks to plunge the world into an ice age. When the.

Starring: Tom Cruise, Mia Sara, Tim Curry, David Bennent

Directed By: Ridley Scott

34]”Collateral” (2004)

"Collateral" (2004)
“Collateral” (2004)

Tom Cruise in “Collateral.”  from Dreamworks
We really don’t talk enough about this one enough. Michael Mann’s slow-burn crime movie stars Cruise as a hitman who forces a cab driver (Jamie Foxx) to drive him around Los Angeles as he goes on his “jobs.” The acting by both Cruise and Foxx in this movie is some of their best work.

Critics Consensus: Driven by director Michael Mann’s trademark visuals and a lean, villainous performance from Tom Cruise, Collateral is a stylish and compelling noir thriller.

Synopsis: A taxi driver is unexpectedly taken on the ride of his life in this stylish thriller from acclaimed director Michael.

Starring: Tom Cruise, Jamie Foxx, Mark Ruffalo, Jada Pinkett Smith

Directed By: Michael Mann

35]”The Firm” (1993)

"The Firm" (1993)
“The Firm” (1993)

Tom Cruise in “The Firm.” from Paramount Picture
In “The Firm,” based on the best-selling John Grisham novel, Cruise gives a fantastic performance as a hot-shot lawyer who signs on with one of the most prestigious law firms in the country, only to find it has quite a dark side. The era of “Tom Cruise runs” really launched with this movie.

Critics Consensus: The Firm is a big studio thriller that amusingly tears apart the last of 1980s boardroom culture and the false securities it represented.

Synopsis: In this drama, based on the best-selling novel by John Grisham, Mitch McDeer (Tom Cruise) is a young man from.

Starring: Tom Cruise, Jeanne Tripplehorn, Gene Hackman, Hal Holbrook

Directed By: Sydney Pollack

36]”Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol” (2011)

"Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol" (2011)
“Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol” (2011)

Tom Cruise in “Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol.” Paramount
It’s the movie that breathed life back into the “Mission: Impossible” franchise. It came five years after “Mission: Impossible III,” and in that time Cruise struggled with an image problem and a string of underperforming movies. He had a lot to prove with this one. And with the casting of Jeremy Renner, Cruise probably could tell he could lose his beloved franchise if the movie didn’t work.

However, Brad Bird’s direction and Cruise’s disregard for common sense , in this one he climbs the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, the world’s tallest building put him back on top, as the movie became a global hit.

Critics Consensus: Stylish, fast-paced, and loaded with gripping set pieces, the fourth Mission: Impossible is big-budget popcorn entertainment that really works.

Synopsis: This is not just another mission. The IMF is shut down when it’s implicated in a global terrorist bombing plot.

Starring: Tom Cruise, Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg, Paula Patton

Directed By: Brad Bird

“All the Right Moves” (1983)

Tom Cruise movies “All the Right Moves.” 20th Century Fox
Two months after Cruise hit theaters with his first lead movie, “Risky Business,” he was back again with this very different movie about a Pennsylvania high-school football player who clashes with his coach.

“Risky Business” showed that Cruise had no problem being the face of a movie, but “All the Right Moves” proves that he could be more than the charming lead with good looks. This one showed he could be a serious actor.

Critics Consensus: N/o

Synopsis: A high school boy begins to think twice about what he really wants out of life as his coach is.

Starring: Tom Cruise, Craig T. Nelson, Lea Thompson, Charles Cioffi

Directed By: Michael Chapman

38]”Tropic Thunder” (2008)

"Tropic Thunder" (2008)
“Tropic Thunder” (2008)
