20. John Q
Image Source: Rotten Tomatoes
A movie that tugs at your heartstrings, John Q sees Denzel play the role of a loving father dealing with the imminent death of his son. Denzel’s performance is heartbreaking at every turn. From watching his son collapse, to taking a hospital hostage, Denzel does well emitting the pain he is feeling. It is not close to being his finest film, but his work in John Q is memorable — just ask LeBron James.
