 Best Crime Movies

Baby Driver (2017)

IMDB: 7.6/10
Rotten Tomatoes: 93%

Plot: Action crime movies can be a lot of fun, and director Edgar Wright does a great job by mixing a good-hearted character in the lead role surrounded by selfish and greedy criminals. Best of both worlds. 

 Best Crime Movies

Munich (2005)

IMDB: 7.5/10
Rotten Tomatoes: 78%

Plot: Steven Spielberg clearly had a lot invested in Munich, his nearly three-hour telling of Israeli spies' revenge against Palestinian terrorists (Black September) who murdered the country's Olympic athletes in 1972. It went on to gross $131 million against the budget of $70 million but it was Spielberg's mastery of visuals and suspense to this political thriller along with humanity and scope that struck a chord with the critics.

 Best Crime Movies

Taxi Driver (1976)

IMDB: 8.3/10
Rotten Tomatoes: 97%

Plot: Travis Bickle (Robert De Niro), an ex-marine and Vietnam War veteran who is mentally unstable and suffers from insomnia, takes a job as a taxi driver in New York City. The sleaze and dirt of the city feed his urge for some violent action to break his growing sense of isolation and comes across a twelve-year-old prostitute whom he attempts to save from her pimp in the process. This is easily one of the best crime drama movies ever made, and instead of focusing on crime as a plot device is explored through a character’s relationship with crime and perceived justice.

 Best Crime Movies

Spotlight (2015)

IMDB: 8.1/10
Rotten Tomatoes: 97%

Plot: The true story about how the Spotlight team of investigative journalists at the Boston Globe uncovered the massive child abuse committed by priests and the cover-up by the local Catholic Archdiocese, which exposed decades of abuse and molestation worldwide and shook the Roman Catholic Church to its core.

 Best Crime Movies

The Departed (2006)

IMDB: 8.5/10
Rotten Tomatoes: 91%

Plot: Scorsese has a particular talent that is often overlooked which is a talent for making great remakes. His 2006 Boston set crime drama is based on the 2002 Hong Kong film Internal Affairs. In this crime thriller, DiCaprio plays the part of an undercover cop sent to infiltrate the network of Frank Costello, played by Jack Nicholson the crime boss of the Boston neighborhood where he grew up. But things are further complicated by the fact that Costello has an informant in the police force and a race against time to sniff out the other rat begins. One of, if not the best, Boston set a crime story of recent decades and one of Scorsese’s best-loved films, with good reason.

 Best Crime Movies

The Wolf of Wall Street (2013)

IMDB: 8.2/10
Rotten Tomatoes: 79%

Plot: Features the deadly combination of Scorsese and DiCaprio. The Wolf of Wall Street is a three-hour-long full-throttle and brutally honest look at the inner working of the dodgy side of Wall Street. Based on the memoirs of Jordan Belfort, DiCaprio is absolutely great and taps into a hitherto unseen talent for black comedy. On the surface, it showed the celebration of the criminal life and the benefits it brought while it lasted, it was also a stark morality tale that is as relevant today as it was in the yuppie heyday of the 1980s in which it is set, the best thing about this movie was it made crime look fun.

 Best Crime Movies

Catch Me if You Can (2002)

IMDB: 8.1/10
Rotten Tomatoes: 96%

Plot: This is one of those crime comedy movies that are just plain fun to watch but is also directed by the legendary Steven Spielberg. It tracks Frank Abagnale's rise as a wunderkind conman. Leonardo DiCaprio has never been more enjoyably alluring and immoral.

 Best Crime Movies

American Hustle (2013)

IMDB: 7.2/10
Rotten Tomatoes: 92%

Plot: Con man Irving Rosenfeld (Christian Bale) and his partner in crime Sydney Prosser (Amy Adams) are caught committing a loan scam and are forced to work for FBI agent Richie DiMaso (Bradley Cooper), who forces them to work for the FBI in exchange for amnesty. Suddenly they are luring New Jersey political operator Carmine Polito (Jeremy Renner) and getting involved with the mafia, and then there is Rosenfeld’s unstable wife Rosalyn (Jennifer Lawrence) who insists on being involved. This movie doesn't have many big shootouts or classic organized crime, but it still has plenty of good crime to watch.
