This list of the best Wesley Snipes movies is ranked best to worst and includes movie trailers when available. Since appearing as Willie Mays Hayes in Major League in 1989, Wesley Snipes has become a popular actor, thanks in part to his ability to blend action and comedy.

This list answers the questions, "What are the best Wesley Snipes movies?" and "What are the greatest Wesley Snipes roles of all time?" The greatest Wesley Snipes performances didn't necessarily come from the best movies, but in most cases they go hand in hand.  Famous flicks like Blade, Chaos, and Demolition Man appear on this Wesley Snipes filmography, but it's up to you to decide if his new movies or his early ones are among the best. If you think the best Wesley Snipes role isn't at the top, then upvote it so it has the chance to become number one.
