The best Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson movies, ranked best to worst with movie trailers when available. The Rock's highest grossing Hollywood movies have received a lot of accolades over the years, earning millions around the world. Though he started his career off as a professional WWE wrestler as The Rock, Dwayne Johnson is all Hollywood now, starring in some of the biggest blockbusters of all time, like The Fast and the Furious series.

This list is all about movies that showcase The Rock's acting chops. The order of these movies is decided by how many votes they receive, so only highly rated films will be at the top of the list. The Rock has been in a lot of films, so people often debate each other over what the greatest of his movies are. If you think the Dwayne Johnson's best performances aren't at the top of the list, then make your voice heard by upvoting all of your favorites. The greatest Dwayne Johnson didn't necessarily come from the best movies, but in most cases, they go hand in hand.
