8. Armageddon

Amazon

Even playing an unremarkable character in an incredibly silly movie, Willis never hits a false note. He lends a lot of emotion to an underwritten part, making him far and away the best part of Armageddon.

Buena Vista Pictures

7. 12 Monkeys

Peacock

Brad Pitt gets a lot of (deserved) credit for his role in 12 Monkeys, but Willis also turns in a star performance. He’s playing against type here, as a bedraggled, broken time traveler in Terry Gilliam’s bizarre sci-fi classic.

Universal Pictures

6. Moonrise Kingdom

HBO Max

Moonrise Kingdom let Willis show off his comedy chops as a dopey cop hunting for two runaway kids.

Focus Features

5. Looper

Netflix

Willis goes back to his action movie roots in Looper, playing a hitman who’s worn out and about to be killed off for good. His showdown with a younger version of himself (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) shows he hasn’t lost his touch since Die Hard.

Sony Pictures

4. Unbreakable

Prime Video

Teaming up with M. Night Shyamalan a second time for Unbreakable let Willis dive even deeper into pathos. As a stoic superhero, he pulls off impressive action scenes and melancholy introspection with equal skill.

3. The Sixth Sense

Prime Video

The Sixth Sense marked a major shift for Willis, who was mostly an action star at that point. Here he plays a sad, sensitive child psychologist, proving his range extends far beyond gun-toting heroes.

2. Pulp Fiction

Paramount Plus

Playing boxer Butch Coolidge, Willis has an all-time bad day in Pulp Fiction. His mix of charm and bravado makes him a perfect fit for this down-on-his-luck tough guy just trying to make the best of his shattered life.

Miramax

1. Die Hard

Prime Video

Willis’ breakout film role remains a classic. As everyman John McClane in Die Hard, he’s completely in his elements — tough, funny, resourceful, and incredibly fun to watch.
