In celebration of his massively successful movie career, we've created this ranked list of the best Matt Damon movies of all time. His films make a ton of money, with the top Matt Damon films earning him more than he'll ever know what to do with. Aside from his wealth, Damon is legitimately one of the most versatile film actors alive today. He can play any type of role, from action heroes like Jason Bourne in the Bourne Series, to nefarious villains like his role of Sgt. Colin Sullivan in The Departed. This Matt Damon films list includes trailers of each movie, so you can preview them here if you're curious. Given that Matt Damon's filmography is extremely celebrated, it's hard to decide which of his movies are better than others. Vote for your favorite movies starring or co-starring Damon, and downvote ones you think should be lower on the list.

Although he stars in a lot of dramas, Damon has got a great sense of humor too. He even made fun of himself alongside friend Ben Affleck in Kevin Smith's Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back in 2001 (if you're a fan of Ben then check out our list of Ben Affleck's best movies too.)

Matt Damon is no stranger to working with popular directors, including Steven Spielberg, Martin Scorsese and Steven Soderbergh. Is Matt Damon your favorite person to watch on the big screen? You might also want to vote on our best George Clooney and Will Smith films lists too.
