Power Rankings: Will Smith Movies

“Men in Black”
Very funny movie which spawned a string of sequels. The unlikely partnership with Tommy Lee Jones was a winner.
“Independence Day”
It is the movie that jumpstarted his career in my opinion. It was a big hit, and he had a great supporting cast around him. I really think it was the first time he showed he could carry the weight on a major movie on his shoulders, and he did it effortlessly.
“The Pursuit of Happyness”
Full of serious Will, as opposed to “Fresh Prince” Will, which was a wise decision, considering this film is based on the true story of a homeless man and his son. After including his son, Jaden, in his music, this is the first movie Will included his son in.
“I Am Legend”
This movie is one that allowed him to not just rely on his great sense of humor but actually use all those great acting skills he possesses. I enjoyed the movie and thought he did in incredible job with it.
“Seven Pounds”
A 2007 film about a man who attempts to atone for a car accident he causes because it was his fault, ultimately leading to his suicide. This film also stars Rosario Dawson and Woody Harrelson.
Will Smith as a superhero sounds appealing. Will Smith as a wisecracking, lazy, alcoholic superhero sounds interesting. Unfortunately, this movie needed a little more comedy and a little less melodramatics.
“The Legend of Bagger Vance”
Smith plays a helpful mystery man who befriends and caddies for World War I vet and golfer Rannulph Junuh; after teaching him everything he knows, Vance disappears.
“Bad Boys”
This 1995 movie was Hollywood mediocrity at its very finest.
“Wild Wild West”
A 1999 big screen adaptation of the 60's series “The Wild Wild West.” Also starred Kevin Kline, Kenneth Branagh, and Salma Hayek.
In this Muhammad Ali biography, Will Smith plays Cassius Clay from his rise to the championship through his conversion to Islam to beating up Ol' Man Foreman to reclaim his title.
