I have to admit that I am not the biggest Russell Crowe fan. I was working on a very time consuming page on John Wayne, when I got a request to do Russell Crowe. My favorite Russell Crowe movies did not do very well on the rankings. Those movies are 3:10 to Yuma and A Good Year. When looking at the final table, please realize many of his early films did not make the list because the movies were never released in North America.
