Top 10 Best Harrison Ford Movies of All Time

33rd AFI Life Achievement Award - A Tribute to George Lucas - Show

1. The Empire Strikes Back

“I love you.” “I know.” That exchange between Han and Leia reflects exactly what Star Wars were thinking about Harrison Ford’s character in Empire Strikes Back and about the film itself. Praised for its dark, bold storytelling choices, Empire is Harrison Ford’s best movie because it allows for him to embrace the wise-cracking, “tough guy” persona of Han Solo while also giving him some even more material to dig into. Whether it’s Han’s growing feelings for Leia or his anguish at being betrayed by Lando in Cloud City, Ford nails every single scene he’s in throughout Empire Strikes back. It’s one of the best performances of his career and easily the best film he’s ever done.
