This list of the best Vin Diesel movies is ranked best to worst, and includes movie trailers when available. Drama, comedy, action, family films, Vin Diesel can do it all. The order of these top Vin Diesel movies is decided by how many votes they receive, so only highly rated Vin Diesel movies will be at the top of the list. This filmography features movies like Fast Five and The Chronicles of Riddick, but it's up to you and other fans to vote and decide upon whether Vin Diesel's new movie, his first movie, or his older films are among the best.

Best known for playing street racer Dom Toretto in the Fast and Furious movies, Vin Diesel became an international action star recognized by his muscles, deep voice, and strong charisma. 

This list answers the questions, "What are the best Vin Diesel movies?" and "What are the greatest Vin Diesel roles of all time?" Vin Diesel has been in a lot of films, so people often debate each other over what the greatest Vin Diesel movie is. The greatest Vin Diesel performances didn't necessarily come from the best movies, but in most cases they go hand in hand. If you think the best Vin Diesel role isn't at the top, then upvote it so it has the chance to become number one.
