We take a look at the versatile actor's best movies over the course of his career:

5. The Godfather: Part II:

The early life and career of Vito Corleone in 1920s New York City is portrayed, while his son, Michael, expands and tightens his grip on the family crime syndicate. Perhaps his most iconic movie to date. The Godfather trilogy has stood the test of time and is still regarded as one of the best trilogies ever made. De Niro plays a young Vito Corleone in his part of the story, which shows his rise to power in the mafia.

 

4. Heat:

A group of professional bank robbers start to feel the heat from police when they unknowingly leave a clue at their latest heist. Heat witnessed the famous pairing of Robert De Niro and Al Pacino once again, after The Godfather: Part II. 

 

3. Taxi Driver:

A mentally unstable veteran works as a nighttime taxi driver in New York City, where the perceived decadence and sleaze fuels his urge for violent action by attempting to liberate a presidential campaign worker and an underage prostitute. It was an iconic collaboration between filmmaker Martin Scorsese and Robert De Niro. 

 

2. Goodfellas:

The story of Henry Hill and his life in the mob, covering his relationship with his wife Karen Hill and his mob partners Jimmy Conway and Tommy DeVito in the Italian-American crime syndicate. Goodfellas is arguably the best mob movie of all time and Robert De Niro elevated it to another level.

 

1. Raging Bull: 

The life of boxer Jake LaMotta (Robert De Niro), whose violence and temper that led him to the top in the ring destroyed his life outside of it. It is one of his most powerful performances of all time. Robert De Niro's portrayal of the former boxer-turned-stand-up comedian Jake LaMotta is a stunning portrait of a guy you love to hate. The audience pity, sympathize, and hate him all at once.

 

Robert De Niro is the recipient of various accolades, including two Academy Awards, a Golden Globe Award, the Cecil B. DeMille Award, and a Screen Actors Guild Life Achievement Award.
