Mark Wahlberg is an A-list Hollywood actor. While not enjoying the status of a serious actor-cum-movie-star that someone like a DiCaprio does, he has managed to create his own identity and cinema. His choice of movies delves centrally in action or comedy. But being a versatile actor, his body of work is diverse and often connects with the audience. He is known for his “tough guy” action persona, frequently portraying police officers, military personnel, or criminals in his films. His lack of awards is mainly due to the movies he stars in, not his acting ability. His acting career has been beset by inequities and criminal problems. But that hasn’t stopped him from releasing his own music album and being a reverential figure in the industry. We decided to refurbish some of his memorable movies, and compile a list of top Mark Wahlberg movies, selected from his vast filmography. You can watch some of these best Mark Wahlberg movies on Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Prime.
12. Four Brothers (2005)
‘Four Brothers’, as the title suggests, is a story of their summoning by a distant brother, to look into the murder of his mother. Initially looking like a simple robbery gone-wrong, further delving reveals a bigger play at hand. How will they solve the mystery and protect their loved ones? Wahlberg does more of the same in a role tailor-made for him. Playing the light-headed, protective brother, Wahlberg yet again proved his mettle as a rough, intimidating figure. Even though the film was well below expectations, both in the collection and script, the performances were worth watching, especially that of Wahlberg.

11. Transformers: The Age of Extinction (2014)
Wahlberg added another feather in his flock of repertoire with starring and shouldering a mega franchise movie. His superstar status was reaffirmed when he became the protagonist in the reboot of the ‘Transformers’ franchise. Playing yet again a protective dad, Wahlberg displayed maturity and ambivalently had the swagger of a special op soldier. Travelling with his daughter and his boyfriend to save the world, his numerous encounters with the Deceptecon manage to give us some worthwhile action sequences. Apart from that, there isn’t much regards script and plot, something which isn’t expected of such movies in the first place.
