Updated January 3, 2020 375 votes 25 voters46 items

This  list will determine the best John Cho movies with the help of your votes. The best John Cho performances are not necessarily in the greatest movies but many times the answer is the same. That being said, we want to know the movies where John Cho acted his best, no matter how big or small the role. The best part is, you can vote for all your favorite John Cho movies not just his comedic roles like the Harold and Kumar films.

You'll find the best movies starring John Cho on this list such as Searching and Star Trek. John Cho is undoubtedly a great actor but that doesn't mean he's been great in every film he's been in, so you can vote down the John Cho movies that you never want to watch again, so other John Cho fans will know which ones to skip.
