Five of Tony Scott’s Best Films

In memory of the late filmmaker, we run through five of what we reckon are his best films...

Rebecca McKnight

As you have probably heard already, film director and producer Tony Scott died over the weekend.

To celebrate his life here are a few his best films…

The A-Team

When it was announced that there would be a film remake of this cult television series, nobody quite knew what to expect. While it might not be the same as the old one, what you do get is very entertaining.

 

Man on Fire

Denzel Washington was an actor that Tony Scott worked with a lot during his career. And from this action flick, it’s no wonder these two combined numerous times.

 

Enemy of the State

In this intelligent thriller, Will Smith ends up with something that a corrupt politician desperately wants and is willing to kill for. The only problem is he doesn’t know what it is he has. 

 

True Romance

With Tony behind the lens and the cast reading like a who’s who of Hollywood, True Romance is an action film with a bit of bite. Christian Slater, Brad Pitt and Samuel L Jackson are just a few of the big names in this film.

 

Top Gun

Saving the best until last, Top Gun was probably the most succesful film he worked on. It stars Tom Cruise as a confident fighter pilot who gets romantically involved with his teacher. 

 

So if you have nothing else planned, why not watch one of these tonight?
