Angelina Jolie is one of the most beautiful and brilliant actors ever to grace the big screen. She can effectively lay claim to an extraordinary range of standout performances that have kept her name in the minds of moviegoers and critics alike for the duration of her career. Angelina Jolie initially gained recognition for her dramatic roles, such as Lisa Rowe and Gia Carangi, in the HBO biopic. However, she later transitioned to action films, which became her signature titles. The Academy Award-winning Girl, Interrupted, was one of the roles that helped establish Jolie’s remarkable career. Here are the Top 5 Angelina Jolie Movies of All Time:
1. Tomb Raider (2001)
Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, a live-action film based on the Tomb Raider video game series, features Jolie’s most iconic performance. As the title character, Jolie demonstrates her worthiness as an action heroine as she embarks on global exploits to save the world from extinction. Even though the film adaptation received negative reviews, it was the highest-grossing film during its opening weekend and was a major hit with video game fans. Due to the film’s success, a sequel, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider – The Cradle of Life, starring Angelina Jolie, was released.
2. Mr & Mrs. Smith (2005)
If “By the Sea” vicariously represented the end of the Jolie-Pitt marriage, “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” was there at the beginning. They are cast as a married couple with a dysfunctional marriage who are paid assassins hired by various persons to kill each other. The flixtor film is a tight action thriller, and what was or wasn’t going on between the two stars off-screen adds to the picture’s intrigue.
3. Changeling (2008)
Jolie received Oscar, Golden Globe, BAFTA, and SAG nominations for Best Actress for this one-of-a-kind picture from director Clint Eastwood. In the film, Jolie plays a young single mother whose son goes missing in 1928 in Los Angeles. When the police “find” the child, Jolie claims that the youngster they gave her is not her son but rather another boy. What follows is an investigation into whether Jolie is insane or whether there is a more nefarious police plot at work. This job is unusual for Jolie, who typically plays more emotional and visibly charismatic characters. She plays a woman who is shy, awkward, and unlike the more extroverted ladies, she normally plays.
4. Wanted (2008)
Wanted is Angelina Jolie’s action film, and I believe I should have included it on my list of superhero movies that weren’t from Marvel or DC. What was I thinking?). Angelina Jolie plays Fox, an assassin who educates an account manager to become an assassin in a secret organization called The Fraternity.
Wanted could be better. Ass. For God’s sake, the characters can bend their bullets. Angelina Jolie is stunning in this film. It’s the pinnacle of action pictures. While she is not the film’s primary character (that honor goes to James McAvoy), she is unquestionably the main draw.
5. Girl, Interrupted (1999)
Jolie made quite a stir with her portrayal of a psychopathic young woman who has spent the majority of her life in a mental facility. She received the Golden Globe, SAG award, and Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her role as the disturbed Lisa, who befriends Winona Ryder’s character Susanna after they are placed in the same hospital to treat her borderline personality disorder. Jolie is electric in this film, going from frantic to outraged, smart to humorous, and even more emotions in minutes. Her sequence in which she evilly convinces a character played by Brittany Murphy into suicide is a hair-raising piece of acting that Jolie pulls off flawlessly.
Angelina Jolie has been a dynamic force in the film industry for a number of years. This legendary actress continues to captivate audiences with her acting and directing skills. This list will keep you entertained for hours if you intend to view any or all of Jolie’s films.
