If Ryan Reynolds was asked to give the introduction of Ryan Reynolds, it couldn’t possibly register on this site. The former, or the latter in this case, is one of the most loved stars in the industry. His quirky wit and macho comeliness compliment each other like those 90 degree right angles. The supercharged combo they make has seen him rise in stature on a global level. His choice of movies has been well appreciated and documented. Covering almost all genres, right from an adult-satirical-sadist-comedy like ‘Deadpool’, to a solemn and taut thriller like ‘Buried’, Reynolds’ ability to adapt and change is unquestionable. Despite doing such good work, people don’t generally associate him with great acting. As a point for all of the above, we decided to present a list of top 12 Ryan Reynolds movies. Happy reading!
12. Paper Man (2009)
Oh, yes. Contrary to popular belief that Reynolds donned a cape for the first time in ‘Deadpoo.. oh, spandex. Well, this was the first time he did, and fun it was. Playing an imaginary friend of a struggling novelist, Reynolds brings forth all of his affable charm to the fore, in making the film more accessible for the young ones. His comic turn in the movie was met with pleasant reactions, with many singling him out owing to their surprise. The film on the whole is a mediocre comedy-drama, with the former dominating the latter in uneven proportions. All in all, right in Reynolds comfort zone, which makes it a fun ride.
11. Woman In Gold (2015)
Now this is why I said before that Reynolds has a great range as an actor. The very next film in the list has Reynolds in a solemn and dramatic capacity, playing a young lawyer willing to help. The story features a syncretism of historical, thriller, and drama genres. In this finely crafted piece of cinema, every fabric of the plot gets a center-stage, culminating in a satisfying watch. Helen Mirren plays an elderly Jewish woman, of the Holocaust era, who seeks to regain what was rightly hers (not the Iron Throne): piece of land and jewelry, apparently a family heirloom. Reynolds plays a helping lawyer, who is determined on the path of getting her what she is entitled to. Overall, the star comes out strong with a credible performance.
