List Rules Vote for your favorite Rosa Salazar movies, regardless of critic reviews or how big the role was.

This list will determine the best Rosa Salazar movies. Most likely, best known for her role as Alita in Alita: Battle Angel. With that said, the best Rosa Salazar performances will not necessarily come from the greatest movies but most of the time the answer is the same. Therefore, vote up the movies where Rosa Salazar acted her best, no matter how big or small the role. Jamesy Boy is Rosa Salazar’s first feature-length movie but she has since been in much larger movies such as The Maze Runner: Scorch Trials and The Divergent Series: Insurgent.

This list of Rosa Salazar movies also includes Bird Box, Jamesy Boy and Search Party.

With so many great Rosa Salazar films to choose from, vote up the ones where you enjoyed Rosa Salazar the most to make sure it makes it to the top of the list. Her filmography consists of both dramatic and comedic roles so vote up the movies on the list below not based on how good the movie is but based on how good Rosa Salazar is in the role.
