This list of the best Angelina Jolie movies is ranked best to worst by thousands of fan votes. Angelina Jolie has been acting since 1982, but she didn't take home her first Oscar until Girl, Interrupted in 1999. Angelina Jolie's highest grossing movies have received a lot of accolades over the years, but the order of this top Angelina Jolie movies list is decided by how many votes they receive, so only highly rated Angelina Jolie movies will be at the top of the list.

This list answers the questions, "What are the best Angelina Jolie movies?" and "What are the greatest Angelina Jolie roles of all time?" The greatest Angelina Jolie performances didn't necessarily come from the best movies, but in most cases they go hand in hand. Famous flicks from Angelina Jolie's filmography like Mr. & Mrs. Smith and Wanted are on this list, but it's up to fans like you to decide upon the best. If you think the best Angelina Jolie role isn't at the top, then upvote it so it has the chance to become number one. 

If you are a fan of action movies starring Angelina Jolie, you might also enjoy our list of best Sandra Bullock movies and best Milla Jovovich movies.
