Paul Walker

Want to know the best Paul Walker movies?  How about the worst Paul Walker movies?  Curious about Paul Walker box office grosses or which Paul Walker movie did the worst at the box office? Need to know which Paul Walker movie got the best reviews from critics and audiences? Well you have come to the right place….because we have all of that information.

Paul Walker (1973-2013) was an American actor.  Walker gained international fame for his portrayal of Brian O’Conner in the Fast and the Furious movie franchise.  He would play the role in six of the first seven installments of that franchise.   Sadly he died in the middle of the filming of 2015’s Furious 7.  His IMDb page shows 42 acting credits from 1986-2015. This page will rank 21 Paul Walker movies from Best to Worst in five different sortable columns of information. Television shows, shorts, cameos and movies that were not released in theaters were not included in the rankings.

This page comes from a request from Cogerson son #1.  BryRog57 is currently serving overseas and requested this page before leaving.  So since (a) he is serving his country (b) he is 1000s of miles away from his family and (c) we sort of like him we figured we would honor his UMR request and get a Paul Walker page completed.

Paul Walker and Vin Diesel became international movie stars when they appeared in the Fast and the Furious franchise

  1. Hey Dan
    1. Wow….I would have thought Paul Walker would have been pretty far up.
    2. His early passing means he will never make the list…..so sad…RIP.
    3. He does not even have a co-star in the Top 25….did not see that coming at all.
    4. Is Rana Morrison the new Bessie or Arthur?
    5. John Carradine gives Paul Walker a connection to lots of Hollywood greats..John Wayne, Henry Fonda pop into my head right away.
    6. Only 7 Oscar winners…..look at his co-stars….I think he will be hard pressed to reach 10…not thinking Vin Diesel or The Rock will be holding an Oscar anytime soon.
    Good lists as always….sorry it took so long to respond….almost every waking moment is spent on the website upgrade.

  2. A good tribute to the late Paul Walker.

    I’ve seen 13 of the 21 films listed. Favorites are the Fast and the Furious films, Flags of our Fathers and Running Scared.

    It’s been ages since I last saw Pleasantville and I can’t remember Paul Walker in that one, might be worth another look. I haven’t seen Eight Below.

    Vote Up!

    1. Hey Steve….thanks for checking out our latest UMR page….which was created to make a soldier somewhere in a hot desert happier……I have seen 15 of the 21 movies. I am right there with you about him in Pleasantville…..but I imagine…he will jump off the screen if we re-view the movie. Eight Below is one of the ones that has escaped me too. I would say my favorite Walker movie is Joy Ride….an almost forgotten movie…..but I would rather watch that than…..any of the Fast and Furious movies. Good feedback.

  3. Paul Walker was never on the Oracle of Bacon Top 1000 Center of the Hollywood Universe list. These are the people on the 2016 list who appeared in a film with him.
