The Best Gangster Movies

List Rules
Vote for your personal favorite Gangster films, regardless of how popular or successful they were at the box office.

Everyone knows that gangster movies are some of the most entertaining films out there -- so if you’re looking for a list of the BEST gangster movies of all time, we’ve got you covered!

It’s pretty obvious that gangster movies focus on gangs and have a large element of organized crime, and may focus on large criminal organizations or perhaps a smaller gang, but they all have an element of illegal activity, which is what makes them so exciting. And the best part is, a lot of these movies are streaming on Netflix and Amazon Prime!

So, what’s better, the Pusher trilogy or Goodfellas? Or perhaps you’re more of a Godfather fan… but then, which Godfather movie is the best? That’s a heavily debated topic, but you can weigh in by voting on the titles below -- vote your favorite gangster movies up to help them move to the top of the list, and if you think any of the gangster films below are currently ranking too high, vote them down to move them lower until they’re swimming with the fishes. And if we forgot any of the best gangster movies, then you can add them to the list -- just keep in mind that we have our own Godfather, of sorts, and if he doesn’t give you his blessing, we’ll have to take a hit out on your addition (in other words, any additions are subject to moderation).

But enough yappin’, if you’re looking for the best gangster movies to watch, from old school flicks to modern mobster movies, this list has got you covered!
