Harrison Ford is one of the most iconic actors. Whether you know him as Han Solo, Indiana Jones, or Rick Deckard, it’s very possible that you’ve seen a movie starring the action star. The amazing thing about Harrison Ford is his transition from Star Wars star to action hero.
He became your classic action movie every-man. His charm, wit, and instant likability made him the perfect man to cast in action movie roles and I’ve seen a lot of his films. On that note, here’s my movie ranking featuring Harrison Ford.
12. Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
The Indiana Jones movies are fantastic, however, this movie wasn’t very fun to watch.
11. Cowboys & Aliens
Cowboys & Aliens started interestingly but it wasn’t long before the movie dwindled into a boring hodgepodge of bland storytelling.
10. Patriot Games
I don’t remember much about this movie, I just know that Sean Bean was the villain.
9. Air Force One
As a child, I think I’ve seen Air Force One at least two, three times and every time I ever watched it I always found it to be a very entertaining. Harrison Ford as the President never seemed very realistic to me but it didn’t matter. It’s still a good movie.
8. Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade
Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade isn’t a bad film, not in the slightest, but compared to the other seven movies on this list there’s a very obvious reason why this is so low on the list.
7. Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom
Fun and fantastic, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom is so much fun! Between the scream-worthy moments with all of the bugs and the suspenseful moments throughout the second half of the film, Temple of Doom is an exhilarating adventure.
6. Star Wars: Return of the Jedi
Star Wars movies are amazing and Harrison Ford’s role as Han Solo is always exciting.
5. Star Wars: A New Hope
A New Hope was the movie that made Harrison Ford an instant star. His charm as the rugged smuggler, Han Solo, was outstanding, grasping the hearts of millions. A New Hope wowed the world with its brilliant storytelling and perfect cast to bring these larger-than-life characters to life.
4. Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark
Steven Spielberg is an incredible filmmaker and Harrison Ford stepped away from his role as Han Solo to become another, maybe even more, iconic character, Indiana Jones. He did an amazing job being the cowboy-hat-wearing-whip-toting archaeologist.
3. Star Wars: The Force Awakens
The Force Awakens was the film that brought the Star Wars fandom back to life and Harrison Ford’s return as an elderly Han Solo was a dream come true. And he didn’t disappoint, delivering my favorite performance from him in the Star Wars franchise.
2. Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back
Considered by many as the greatest Star Wars film of all time, The Empire Strikes Back is easily storytelling at its best.
1. The Fugitive
Oh my goodness, this movie is so good! One of the greatest murder mysteries ever brought to the big screen, The Fugitive is absolute perfection, with Harrison Ford at his absolute best. And Tommy Lee Jones’ performance was just as outstanding. With twists and turns left and right, The Fugitive is a must-watch if you’ve never seen it.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day.
