Every tom cruise sci-fi movie ranked from worst to best.

From his two collaborations with Steven Spielberg to the Edge of Tomorrow, here are all of Tom Cruise's sci-fi movies ranked from worst to best.

Tom Cruise is one of Hollywood's most bankable movie stars, and throughout his long and illustrious career he's made a few notable forays into sci-fi, but how do his films in that genre rank from worst to best? Cruise is rightfully often thought of as one of the last of the old-school A-list movie stars. As franchises are more and more defined by their intellectual property, the list of actors who can bring in boffo box office with just their name is shrinking rapidly. However, a Tom Cruise film is always a major event.

Cruise has been around in the business for almost 40 years, building up a string of prestigious dramas and action films that made him an undeniable force in the industry. In the 1980s and '90s, he swung effortlessly from  Top Gun to  A Few Good Men ,  from  Mission: Impossible to  Magnolia.  He received box office clout and awards attention, and famously appeared in Stanley Kubrick 's final film,  Eyes Wide Shut .

It may seem surprising that he didn't dip his toe in the sci-fi genre until after the turn of the century, first with Cameron Crowe's audacious mess,  Vanilla Sky.  However, that first foray started a trend that gave us some of Cruise's most interesting and surprising 21st-century performances. From his two collaborations with Steven Spielberg to the  Edge of Tomorrow,  here are Tom Cruise's sci-fi movies ranked from worst to best.

5. Oblivion (2013)

There's almost no movie star with a steadier hand than Tom Cruise, but not even he can right the wrongs of this visually dazzling but immensely boring music video of a film. Oblivion 's plot concerns a security repairman on an abandoned Earth and the chance meeting that will trigger his fight to singlehandedly save mankind. Director Joseph Kosinski, who also directed the problematic Disney sequel TRON: Legacy ,  shoots the whole film with the self-seriousness of a cerebral space epic, but one can almost feel Cruise itching to burst out of these somber restrictions and make it a full-fledged action film. Claudio Miranda's cinematography attempts to make up for a predictable plot, and the film's look goes a long way. No matter of aesthetics could disguise a film that can't decide whether it wants to swerve wildly off the rails or barely have a pulse.

4. Vanilla Sky (2001)

Tom Cruise and writer-director Cameron Crowe reunited to make this absolutely out-of-its-mind remake of the 1997 Spanish film  Open Your Eyes.  The plot is difficult to parse, but the basic gist is that Cruise plays a Manhattan publishing giant who attempts to utilize a bizarre, sci-fi version of therapy to bounce back after a traumatizing car crash. It's a big swing of a movie, and while it pales in comparison to the unsettling majesty of Cruise's Kubrick collaboration,  Eyes Wide Shut , it can proudly sit beside that masterpiece as one of the most interesting entries in the actor's vast filmography. It's as fascinating as much as it is largely unsuccessful, its psychological thriller underpinnings consistently playing second fiddle to its nightmarish imagery, the most famous example being Cruise running through a totally empty Times Square. This is a wild, out-there performance from the movie star, but a charmingly odd reunion for its director and star after  Jerry Maguire.

3. War of the Worlds (2005)

Early on in Spielberg's 2005 update of H.G. Wells'  War of the Worlds,  Tom Cruise has a full-on panic attack realizing that the dust that's covering him is actually the ashes of people vaporized by the invading, underrated, and horrific Spielbergian Tripod aliens . It's an early harbinger that Spielberg isn't interested in making just another popcorn movie.  War of the Worlds may remain Cruise's highest-grossing domestic hit, but that doesn't take away from the fact that this is one of the director's and star's bleakest, most deeply terrifying films. In fact, many Spielberg fans and critics have lumped this film, along with 2004's The Terminal and 2005's  Munich,  into an unofficial trilogy   focused on America's mood post-9/11. While the former is more heartwarming and the latter more awards-focused,  War of the Worlds  transcends both, and the "trilogy" moniker, to become one of the most harrowing and definitive American films about that terrible day 20 years ago. This is a movie filled with nightmarish and horror movie imagery, from a sea of floating corpses to the terrifying nature of the Tripods. Cruise's shocking ease at slipping into the shoes of a single dad everyman gives a grounding center to this blockbuster portrait of sheer terror.

2. Edge of Tomorrow (2014)

Instantly one of the most pleasant surprises of popular filmmaking in the 21st century, this Doug Liman-helmed actioner didn't just have the smarts to mash up the genre with  Groundhog Day , it also formed a remarkably electric pairing with Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt. Cruise is phenomenal, but the big surprise here is that he's kind of playing a big old scaredy-cat, ceding scene-stealing status to Blunt, who comes into her own as a full-blown, blockbuster-leading movie star here. Their chemistry is rock solid, the screenplay feels consistently fresh and genuinely funny, and Liman's direction keeps things moving with a refreshing dynamism that never lets the film's inherent repetition grow stale. Cruise has forever been one of the action genre's most outstanding performers, but it's arguable none of his blockbuster offerings have ever felt as surprising, as fresh, and as flat-out fun as  Edge of Tomorrow. W ithout a doubt, this is one of the best action movies of the decade  and certainly one of Cruise's best outings in the sci-fi genre.

1. Minority Report (2002)

Tom Cruise and Steven Spielberg had been in talks to collaborate for years before  Minority Report , but few could have imagined that their first film together would be as moody and haunted as  Minority Report.  Filmed long before 9/11, the film's depiction of societal paranoia and surveillance, where futuristic cops can arrest people just for  knowing they're going to commit a murder, hit the zeitgeist in a chilling and downright uncanny way. That's partly due to the source material, a 1956 novella called  The Minority Report and written by Philip K. Dick , whose works have inspired other sci-fi tentpoles like  Blade Runner and  Total Recall.  However, it's the mash-up of Spielberg and Cruise, along with the chrome steel cinematography of Janusz Kaminski, which transforms the story into a  Maltese Falcon for the 21st century. Spielberg marries genre mastery to a world-weariness that clashes with his most trademark films and Cruise's typically sturdy performance brings a tragic heft, and lots of running, to this underappreciated screed against an America abandoning its principles.

5 Great Sci-Fi Movies Starring Tom Cruise

Tom Cruise may be best known for his performances in Mission: Impossible and Top Gun, but he has also played complex characters in sci-fi films.

Tom Cruise is considered one of the greatest movie stars of all time, thanks to his tremendous work as Ethan Hunt in the Mission: Impossible franchise, as well as his iconic roles in Top Gun and Risky Business . However, Cruise has also found success in big-budget sci-fi films, including a couple of them directed by Steven Spielberg.

While characters like Hunt and Maverick are portrayed as invincible men who can't be defeated, the protagonists that Cruise embodies in his sci-fi epics are vulnerable individuals who get caught up in complicated situations, such as going to war against alien forces, getting involved with murder cases, or trying to regain important memories. Cruise also has strong interactions with female characters in terms of working with them to understand the main conflict, which sometimes includes messing around with the conventions of time and space.

Updated May 26, 2022 by Mark Sammut: Tom Cruise is back in the headlines with the release of Top Gun: Maverick, and the sequel has garnered an incredible reception so far. Over the course of his storied career, the actor has tested his skills by diving into a wide range of genres and styles, including science-fiction. This article has been expanded to include more information about Tom Cruise's best sci-fi movies , including where they can be streamed. A section regarding the movie star's upcoming projects has also been added.

Vanilla Sky

This sci-fi picture reunited Cruise with Jerry Maguire director Cameron Crowe, which also combines psychological thriller with romance. Cruise plays David Aames, a publicist with plenty of privilege who appears to have everything: a successful job, a beautiful partner, a nice home, a fast car, etc. However, when a car accident nearly kills David, he (and the audience) tries to solve a complex puzzle that questions what is real and what is fantasy (similar to Christopher Nolan's complex film Memento ).

RELATED: Underrated Sci-Fi Movies From The 1980s & Where To Stream Them

Along with having a heavily disfigured face and needing to wear a mask to help him heal, David also finds himself in a love triangle with two seductive women: his partner Julie (portrayed by a wild Cameron Diaz) and Sofia (played by Penélope Cruz). David also has reflective conversations with a psychologist (played by Kurt Russell), who tries to help David figure out if he murdered anyone after being charged with a murder he doesn't remember nor believe he committed. Like Memento or Inception , this feature is a test for its protagonist to question his sense of reality and to figure out what makes his life happy and enjoyable.

This action-packed sci-fi film features an apocalyptic future in which Cruise portrays Jack Harper, one of the last remaining humans on Earth in 2077 after alien scavengers destroy the Moon and leave the planet in turmoil. Harper uses combat drones to encounter all the scavengers left on Earth, but when he learns that the scavengers are actually humans trying to defeat the alien artificial intelligence threat called Tet (which controls the drones), Harper also discovers that there are clones of him (and several other humans) who are loyal to Tet and become a major threat to humanity.

There are eye-opening images of a broken-down New York (including the New York Public Library in ruins, and the Empire State Building and city bridges left uninhabited and in darkness). As Harper, Cruise's character is reminiscent of Arnold Schwarzenegger's role in Total Recall due to the fact that Harper has dreams based on his past, which involve memories of previous missions he's had as a commander for NASA. Harper's dreams help him remember his true identity and the love he shares with his wife Julia (also a soldier). Along with Cruise's complex role, Morgan Freeman also stars as a rebel leader, and there are high-octane action sequences that include shootouts and chases involving big space aircraft.

War Of The Worlds

Steven Spielberg's adaptation of H.G. Wells' novel is intense and hard-hitting as Cruise plays Ray Ferrier, a dockworker who is divorced and spends time with his children during a weekend gathering at his home. Ray is considered a flawed husband and father, but he is put to the test when blue spaceships with sting rays invade Earth to take out humanity. Ray does everything he can to protect his teenage son Robbie and young daughter Rachel from harm.

RELATED: Things That Early Sci-Fi Got Right About The Modern World

While the effects involving the alien creatures are massive and loud, what makes this sci-fi feature effective is the drama surrounding Ray and his family. Ray proves to his kids that he is capable of providing safety for them, even if that involves bumps along the road (running out of food and water, trying to find shelter to keep warm, etc.). The paranoia surrounding the human characters also provides plenty of drama, especially in a scene where Ray has to fight numerous civilians who intend to steal his minivan or another moment in which a paranoid man (well played by Tim Robbins) believes everyone is going to die. The best action scene occurs when Ray is grabbed by one of the alien tripods but manages to slip a pack of grenades inside, destroying it before the pod can take him away.

Edge Of Tomorrow

The Bourne Identity director Doug Liman crafts a unique spin on time travel in this ingenious sci-fi picture involving William Cage, a U.S. Army Major who is skilled in providing public affairs to an army called the United Defense Force (UDF) in their fight against powerful aliens called "Mimics." However, when Cage is ordered to fight aliens with a squad in France, he fears for his life and ends up dying and repeating the same day over and over again ( a nod to Groundhog Day ).

This is one of Cruise's most vulnerable roles because his character isn't a professional when it comes to combat and fighting in a war. However, by reliving the same day repeatedly, Cage manages to get better at facing the aliens and anticipating their every move. His partnership with Sergeant Rita Vrataski (a tough Emily Blunt) is also engaging because as she helps him become a skillful warrior, Cage provides Rita with information about how to destroy the Mimics. While the film is most intense, there are comedic scenarios in which Rita kills Cage many times whenever he fails and messes up during training, or when Cage constantly meets the same members of a squad and memorizes their actions and personal histories.

Minority Report

Before War of the Worlds , Spielberg and Cruise collaborated for this sci-fi action thriller based on Philip K. Dick's short story of the same name. The story revolves around Chief John Anderton (Cruise), a cop who works for a police program that solves murders and crimes before they occur. When Anderton finds out that he is wrongly accused of murder, he becomes a wanted fugitive.

This is Cruise's best performance in a sci-fi feature because he manages to portray an intelligent but conflicted detective who intends to clear his name, as well as a husband who misses his wife. The scenes in which Anderton and his unit use advanced technology in his "Precrime" police program to track down would-be killers is fascinating because it's all so far ahead of its time, along with flying police cars and vehicles used in elaborate chase sequences when Anderton is a suspect being hunted down by fellow cops. The film effectively combines elements of the noir and chase film in a whodunit thriller with cool tech, along with strong supporting work from Colin Farrell and Max von Sydow (who aren't what they seem).

These sci-fi features are not only filled with action and/or psychological tension, but they also display Tom Cruise's versatility as an actor, portraying characters who go through tremendous obstacles. Audiences will have to wait and see what type of film Cruise will do in space with Elon Musk .

Upcoming Sci-Fi Movies Starring Tom Cruise

Throughout his career, Cruise has periodically dappled in science fiction, but he is not exactly synonymous with the genre. However, that might be set to change as the actor is reportedly working on two sci-fi projects, one of which is particularly ambitious.

SpaceX Project

In 2020, a rumor hit the rounds stating that Tom Cruise will be teaming up with Elon Musk's SpaceX to film a movie in space, specifically the International Space Station. Information regarding this project was scarce for quite a long time, but recent reports state that production is likely to start once the actor completes his work on the upcoming Mission: Impossible sequels.

Doug Liman is attached as the movie's director, and he also shares writing credits with Christopher McQuarrie. Universal Pictures will be handling the production. Nothing about the story has been revealed, so it remains to be seen whether this feature opts for a more grounded or extravagant tone.

Live Die Repeat And Repeat

A sequel to Edge of Tomorrow is in the pipeline, with reports even suggesting that the script is complete. Unfortunately, as exciting of a prospect as this is, the likelihood of it coming to fruition is not that great. Despite most key members showing interest in producing this follow-up, Tom Cruise, Emily Blunt, and Doug Liman have struggled to align their schedules to make it happen. Live Die Repeat and Repeat is also likely to be an expensive undertaking, and while the 2014 release did not bomb at the box office, it was also not a runaway hit.

7 best Tom Cruise movies to stream on Netflix, Prime Video and more

Where to stream these iconic movies starring Tom Cruise

Tom Cruise in Top Gun: Maverick

Tom Cruise is one of the highest-paid actors in Hollywood. For good reason, too. With jaw-dropping stunts, a gleaming smile and an intense gaze unmatched by many, Tom Cruise is a household name in Hollywood. He's had the lead actor role in at least 39 films and counting and has a box office total that has grossed over 10 billion. He has also produced some of his own films, including the hit Mission: Impossible franchise.

While Cruise may be known as an invincible action star, he has also played numerous characters with incredible depth and range. He has been the charming yet competitive romantic lead, the cold, calculating killer, and the greedy but misguided younger brother. Cruise has worked alongside some of the most famous actors and directors of our time. While it's hard to narrow down his greatest roles in such a short list, we've put together a few of the best Tom Cruise movies. 

In the Oscar award-winning film, Rain Main, Cruise plays Charlie Babbitt, the selfish brother of Raymond as played by Dustin Hoffman. Charlie finds out that his brother Raymond has inherited a great deal of money. Determined to get hold of what he believes is rightfully his, Charlie absconds Ray away from his residential home, sending the two on a memorable road trip neither will forget.

Hoffman took home an Academy Award for his role. So did the director, the screenwriter, and the picture as a whole. While Tom Cruise may not have received an Oscar nomination for his role in the film, he is the perfect actor to play alongside Hoffman. You have the reward of watching him shed his character's shallow, flashy demeanor and embrace a subtle maturity as he learns why his brother was sent away. A must-watch film that is one of Tom Cruise's best.

Watch on Prime Video

No one but Cruise could have played the part of Mitch McDeere in The Firm, an adaptation of the book by John Grisham. It could be why the 2012 television series of the book was canceled after only a single season. In the film, Cruise's McDeere is hired by a "small" firm from Memphis right out of law school. Although everything seems on the up-and-up, it isn't long before he realizes that he is surrounded by crooks.

It's the transformation of McDeere's smugness over landing such a top-notch job into an intensity over uncovering the truth and protecting his career — and life — that makes this such a powerful Tom Cruise film. However, what may surprise many is that Holly Hunter took home the Oscar for her role as Tammy Hemphill, the secretary of the private detective that McDeere hires. Despite Cruise's lack of Oscar recognition, this is one of his best movies.

Watch on Netflix , Prime Video or Paramount Plus

A Few Good Men

A Few Good Men is a movie best known by many for its famous line spoken by Jack Nicholson who retorts, "You can't handle the truth!" However, it wouldn't be the same without Cruise playing the cocky Military lawyer Lieutenant Daniel Kaffee. 

When defense lawyer Kaffee gets to defend two Marines accused of killing one of their colleagues, many expect him to simply settle the case out of court. Cruise's natural overconfidence as portrayed in his character, Kaffee, becomes a quality that people plan to manipulate to keep the truth a secret. When he realizes this raw reality, Cruise's stone-cold determination to take the case to court shocks many. Nicholson, who plays Colonel Nathan R. Jessup, was nominated for the Oscar. However, Cruise wows the audience when he plays opposite Nicholson in the famous court scene that prompted the line we all know so well.

Watch on AMC Plus

Going against his typical role, Tom Cruise plays a ruthless killer in the movie, Collateral. Vincent, as played by Cruise, is visiting Los Angeles to finish off a few people who are supposed to testify in court against a drug lord as well as a couple of other lawyers involved in the case. When he gets into the cab of Max, played by Jamie Foxx, not everything goes according to plan.

Cruise takes out all the charm in his personality to depict a heartless killer — although what remains is a certain reasonableness to his personality as he almost convinces Foxx's Max to stick with him for the long haul. However, Foxx's Max becomes braver by the moment. In yet another film where another actor was Oscar-nominated over Cruise — this time it was Jamie Foxx — it still remains one of Cruise's most complex characters, making it one of his best movies.

Watch on Paramount Plus

Jerry Maguire

This time an Oscar nominee, Cruise plays the part of Jerry Maguire, a sports agent at the top of his game. However, Cruise's Maguire gets a crisis of conscience when one of his clients gets seriously hurt. Confronted by the client's son, Cruise realizes he has no heart for those he is supposed to represent. 

When Cruise's Maguire writes a mission statement, encouraging his agency to change their ways, he loses it all. However, despite the falling out, he connects with potential love interest, Dorothy Boyd, played by Renee Zellweger. He also manages to keep a single client, Rod Tidwell, played by Cuba Gooding Jr. It's a perfect blend of excellent acting, a strong script, and superb directing that makes this one of the most memorable romantic comedies. It also happens to include the famous Tom Cruise line that gives us all the feels, "You complete me."

Rent/buy on Amazon or Apple  

Top Gun: Maverick

Timing is everything, as the old adage says. That is possibly why the movie Top Gun: Maverick was such a success. Cruise starred in and produced the film, a sequel to his career-making film, Top Gun. While it was ready to go in 2020, he delayed its release for when people could actually see it in theaters. And for good reason. With incredible stunts and minimal usage of CGI, the movie is an experience as much as it is entertainment.

Playing a character many became familiar with in the '80s, Cruise adds a level of maturity to his role as Captain Pete "Maverick" Mitchell. Cruise's Maverick returns to the school that molded him to train younger pilots, one of whom is the son of his now-deceased best friend. The emotional depth Cruise brings to the film makes it almost better than the original, a feat that's near impossible for sequels. 

Watch on Prime Video or Paramount Plus

Risky Business

How can any of us forget that famous scene when Cruise dances in his underwear to the Bob Seger song, "Old Time Rock & Roll"? One of the movies that made him who he is today, Cruise plays Joel Goodsen, a college-bound high school senior who itches to cut loose from his parents' ties. Finally having the opportunity to live a little when his parents go on vacation, things for Goodsen go from bad to worse as each rule is broken.

Acting alongside Rebecca De Mornay who plays the elusive and appealing call girl, Cruise's Goodsen learns about life, love, and consequences in this iconic film. Coupled with a strong script and excellent music from the 80s, this is one of Tom Cruise's best and most memorable movies.

Tom Cruise Sets Up Shop at Warner Bros. With New Movie Partnership

Tom Cruise is setting up shop on the Warner Bros. lot.

In a new strategic partnership that Warner Bros. Discovery chief David Zaslav helped shepherd, Cruise will team with movie studio chiefs Michael De Luca and Pamela Abdy in jointly developing and producing original and franchise theatrical films starring the world-famous actor.

Cruise and his production company will have offices on the WBD lot in Burbank. The pact, which commences this year, isn't a traditional first-look deal, insiders say.

Luring Cruise into the fold is a coup for Zaslav, Abdy and De Luca, considering he's one of the last movie stars who carries clout around the world. And it's especially a coup since he's otherwise remained a free agent who hasn't had a formal deal with Paramount, home of his two biggest franchises, Mission: Impossible and Top Gun , since 2006.

Insiders stress that Cruise will continue to work with other studios, including Paramount, for whom he's currently shooting the next Mission: Impossible film. And he's making a space adventure movie for Universal that will see him become to first civilian to walk outside of the International Space Station.

Teaming with WBD gives Cruise additional security at a time of enormous change for Hollywood's legacy movie studios, some of whom are having to reconsider spending hundreds of millions on franchise tentpoles. That includes Paramount, which could be sold in the next year or so; one of the potential suitors is WBD.

No specific projects have yet been announced as part of the new WBD and Cruise partnership, which marks a homecoming of sorts. His roster of films includes such Warners titles as Edge of Tomorrow , Rock of Ages , Magnolia , Eyes Wide Shut , Interview With the Vampire and Risky Business , which helped put the actor on the map.

"Our vision, from day one, has been to rebuild this iconic studio to the heights of its glory days, and, in fact, when we first sat down with David Zaslav to talk about joining the Warner Bros. Discovery team, he said to us, ‘We are on a mission to bring Warner Bros. back - we have the best resources, storytelling IP, and talent in the business - and we need to bring Tom Cruise back to Warner Bros!' Today, that becomes a reality and we are one step closer to achieving our ambition," said De Luca and Abdy in a statement. The duo serve as co-CEOS of the Warner Bros. Motion Picture Group.

Added Cruise, "I have great respect and admiration for David, Pam, Mike, and the entire team at Warner Bros. Discovery and their commitment to movies, movie fans, and the theatrical experience. I look forward to making great movies together!"

Over the course of his five-decade career as an actor and producer, Cruise's movies have earned nearly $13 billion in worldwide box office, a virtually incomparable achievement, according to the release announcing the new partnership.

Cruise and Paramount, however, faced tough times last year when Mission: Impossible - Dead Reckoning Part One disappointed badly at the global box office amid the Barbenheimer craze.
