Top 10 Will Smith movies

A rapper, an actor, a dad, a Grammy winner, an Oscar nominee… and now an Instagram-famous vlogger on YouTube. What’s next for Will Smith? It’s hard to say, but he certainly has a knack for almost every form of entertainment imaginable. Who would’ve thought that the young lead from a 90s sitcom would be destined for such greatness?

Will Smith’s charm is undeniable, which is probably why he’s able to be so effortlessly watchable in (almost) everything he does. For a while there, he seemed to be unstoppable—nailing hit role after hit role for years and years before he started to slip up within the past five years. Still, it’s no matter: he has plenty of solid roles worth noting.

Six Degrees of Separation

10 best Will Smith movies

One of Will Smith’s earliest feature film roles, Six Degrees of Separation is a fascinating examination of the way we present ourselves and the connectivity of our everyday lives. The phrase “small world” goes a long way in this film, and Will Smith’s dramatic acting chops really shine through here.

Men in Black

10 best Will Smith movies

Will Smith’s science fiction adventure will have you longing for the days when movies had their own original songs recapping the film that played during the end credits. Beyond that, the movie will make you appreciate his comedic timing and his charisma as a leading man. There may be two other sequels after this and a spinoff on the way, but Will Smith’s appeal is undeniable here.

Hitch

10 best Will Smith movies

We’ve appreciated his dramatic and comedic acting, but what about his ability to be romantic? Will Smith’s Hitch is one of the best romantic comedies of the 2000s, endlessly rewatchable and effortlessly endearing. Eva Mendes helps, and Kevin James actually delivers a solid performance, but this movie is all Will Smith’s all the way.

Enemy of the State

10 best Will Smith movies

It’s no surprise Will Smith became an action movie star after Men in Black, just as it’s not surprising so many of his films managed to be massive commercial hits while still remaining original and watchable. Enemy of the State is a movie about government conspiracies and the NSA, released long before Edward Snowden brought the nation’s attention to the very real threat of the government abusing their surveillance abilities. Will Smith is as good as ever, acting alongside the great Gene Hackman.

I Am Legend

10 best Will Smith movies

This one feels different than Smith’s other movies: he was always the standout, but never before had he been the only actor onscreen for a large portion of a movie’s runtime. It’s Will and Will alone against the world for a big chunk of this adaptation of a Richard Matheson novel, but Will Smith carries it effortlessly.

Ali

10 best Will Smith movies

Will Smith earned himself an Oscar nomination for his part in Ali, starring as the sports legend between the years of 1964 and 1974 through the ups and downs of his intertwining career and personal life. Jamie Foxx and Jon Voight also give good performances, but this is another instance where Will Smith is allowed to shine brightly—he never falters throughout the film’s nearly three-hour runtime.

Pursuit of Happyness

10 best Will Smith movies

Another dramatic performance, another Oscar nomination for Smith. He stars in the Pursuit of Happyness with his inimitable son Jaden Smith (who has since become somewhat of a meme). The two help to create one of the most heartwarming films of the 21st century so far. It’s a touching father-and-son story as well as an inspiring rags-to-riches tale.

Independence Day

10 best Will Smith movies

Thanks to Will Smith, Jeff Goldblum, and Roland Emmerich, we have the most definitive Fourth of July movie since Tom Cruise played Ron Kovic. Independence Day is a ridiculously fun movie: it has Smith and Goldblum fighting off alien invaders, what more could you ask for?

I, Robot

10 best Will Smith movies

Will Smith delivers a great performance in I, Robot, another science fiction literary adaptation, this time loosely based on the novel by Isaac Asimov. The movie’s effects haven’t held up as well as the filmmakers would’ve probably preferred, but the movie’s examination of artificial intelligence and the relationship between man and machine is so interesting it’s worth enduring some iffy CGI.

Concussion

10 best Will Smith movies

Before the NFL became more controversial than ever before, Will Smith played pathologist Dr. Bennet Omalu—the scientist who discovered the dangers that football players with multiple concussions could possibly face years down the line due to repeated brain damage that occurs during your average football game. It’s an interesting and compelling story, made all the better by Smith’s performance.
