Want to know the best Michael Caine movies?  How about the worst Michael Caine movies?  Curious about Michael Caine’s box office grosses or which Michael Caine movie picked up the most Oscar® nominations? Need to know which Michael Caine movie got the best reviews from critics and audiences? Well you have come to the right place….because we have all of that information.

My father introduced me to Michael Caine (1933-) in the movie The Man Who Would Be King. Since that 1975 movie I have followed his career very closely. I am probably one of the few people on Earth who not only saw The Swarm at the theater but also Beyond the Poseidon Adventure at the theater. After years of struggling as an actor, in the mid 1960s he finally became a star with the British films Zulu, Alfie, and Ipcress Files. Since then he has starred in roughly 90 movies.  Over the years Caine has received 6 Oscar® nominations and 2 Oscar® wins.  Not only is he still popular after a 65 year career but he is still appearing in some the biggest movies out there (Inception, Batman trilogy). Currently he is director Christopher Nolan’s good luck charm. Caine has appeared in the last 6 Nolan films.

His IMDb page shows 159 acting credits from 1950-2016.  In the table below, Ultimate Movie Rankings ranks 91 of his movies in 7 different sortable columns.  Television roles, cameos, shorts and straight to DVD movies were not included in the rankings.

My Personal Top Ten Michael Caine Movies In Alphabetical Order

#1 Batman Begins (2005)…Caine has a much bigger part in the first part of Christopher Nolan’s trilogy…so I tend to watch Batman Begins more often than the Dark Knight movies.

#2 A Bridge Too Far (1977) ….One of the last epic war movies, an all-star cast that has some humor while telling the true story of World War II’s Operation: Market Garden. I watch this movie at least once a year.

#3 Children of Men (2006) … Caine has a supporting role in this movie about a future were babies are no longer being born…Clive Owen is also awesome in the lead role.

#4 Deathtrap (1982) ….Based on a stage play, Caine is outstanding as a famous writer who is suffering from writer’s block. Has an unusual twist in the middle of the movie. A nice companion movie to 1972’s Sleuth.

#5 Dirty Rotten Scroundrels (1988)….Caine and Steve Martin play dueling con men in this very funny remake of the Marlon Brando and David Niven film Bedtime Stories.

#6 The Man Who Would Be King (1975) …You get Caine, Sean Connery and legendary director John Huston in this adventure film that almost starred Humphrey Bogart and Clark Gable back in the 1950s.

#7 The Prestige (2006)….Caine’s 2nd of 5 movies with director Christopher Nolan. Caine plays the middle man as Christian Bale and Hugh Jackman wages in a brutal personal conflict.

#8 Secondhand Lions (2003)…Caine and Robert Duvall play very eccentric uncles to Haley Joel Osment in this comedy drama. I laughed for days at the ending at this almost forgotten gem of a movie.

#9 Sleuth (1972)….Caine goes toe to toe with Sir Laurence Olivier as movie characters and in acting ability. Both men got Oscar® nominations for Best Actor for their roles in Sleuth. Avoid the 2007 remake that also stars Caine as it is pretty horrible.

#10 Zulu (1964)….Caine’s first big break came in this excellent movie. Although he had appeared in many movies prior to Zulu…it got the credit of Introducing Michael Caine. The success of Zulu helped him get his Alfie role and then he never looked back again.

#11 Interesting to me… I have seen 77 of the 86 movies listed on this table….or 89.53% of his movies.

  1. Recognize the name M. Emmett Walsh, a character actor who Roger Ebert called one of his favorite actors. I did a study on the upper portion of I think the 2005 Oracle of Bacon list and M. there connected with more people on the list than anybody. So I wondered how many Oscar winners. Emmett is currently #115 and he has appeared with 55 Oscar winners.

    1. Jim Broadbent is one of the best supporting actors out there. I get a kick out of seeing him in movies that I had seen before…but did not notice him before….Time Bandits, Brazil, The Crying Game. It was the double whammy of Moulin Rouge and Topsy Turvy that finally got me to notice him. 38 is pretty impressive. It seems like he is slowing down somewhat…about 5 years ago…it seemed like he was in almost every movie made. Thanks for the list….I finally got around to doing this for Bruce Willis….he is at 25…and I did not include all of the Player cameos. That list can be found on my Willis page.

        1. Hey Dan….thanks for the additional names….I did not even look at his parts that were one or two day movies for him…..so I missed Schofiled, Coburn and Hiller…..then I was a snob….and only looked at the ones that got released in theaters in the USA….so I did not include Harden and Landau. I had Malden and Arkin just in different movies…..so the rest of the ones you mentioned gets his total up to 65…..70 if we add all of them. That might be hard to beat….but then again I thought the same thing with Marvin. Thanks for taking the time to come up with this list.

          1. Hey Dan…thanks for this impressive list. I give him credit for the 94….very impressive…..but….I like the tally from stars….or at least supporting characters…versus somebody that has to be searched for to find him in the movie. So in my mind we have two leaders…..Arthur and Sir Michael… pretty sure the Bacon lists have identified Arthur as the king of the extras…..not thinking anybody else will touch his total….thanks for sharing.

  4. Hey Lyle good to hear from another Caine fan. I am right there with in your comments as that is how I feel too. One of his worst ranked movies is Surrender with Sally Field (which has the wrong co-star in the table)…. I saw that one in theaters and liked it….though it appears not many others did….but Caine was fun to watch. Thanks for sharing all of your favorite Caine movies.

  5. Hello Bruce. I’ve always been a fan of Michael Caine ever since I saw “The Ipcress File” (1965). I loved “Alfie” (1966), “The Italian Job” (1969), “Too Late the Hero” (1970), “The Last Valley” (1971) ( I think Caine gave one of his best dramatic performances in The Last Valley), “Kidnapped” (1971), “X, Y and Zee” (1972), “Sleuth” (1972), “The Romantic Englishwoman” (1975), “The Man Who Would Be King” (1975) and many others. I went to see almost all of his films of the 1980’s on the big screen and though Caine himself commented that he made a lot of crap, I enjoyed all of them just because Michael Caine was in them. I think that Michael Caine is a naturally funny actor and does well in comedy as well as dramatic roles. I like Michael Caine.
