If you are reading this, like us, you must be a fan of Paul Walker movies? Walker captured the hearts of people all over the world, mainly through his presence in the Fast and Furious movie franchise. His work there made him a household name but he also had some other great standout performances in movies outside of the F&F series. Now sadly lost to us following a road accident, his memory still lives on through his movies. So if you’re looking for moving movie experience or just want to watch some great action scenes, check out our Paul Walker Movies list.
Fast & Furious 7 (2015)
Get ready for a huge adrenaline rush. Starring action legends such as Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham, this film delivers plenty of bang for your buck. As you’d imagine it’s full of fast cars, stunts and explosions.
Following on from the the previous, and the crew are living quiet lives as a result of an amnesty from their previous crimes. Spoiler alert the next two hours isn’t them playing with their model train-sets and doing crosswords – no, Owen Shaw’s older brother is hunting them down.
You always know what you are going to get with anything in the F&F series and the likeable main characters (Walker especially) gives the films more depth that just purely macho thrills and spills.
This is was Walker’s final movie and the ending will bring a lump to the throat given his long association with the film franchise.
Directed by James Wan
Hours is an award-winning film about a father who is struggling to keep his newborn alive in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. In the movie, Paul Walker gives viewers a committed performance that turns this otherwise ordinary man-overcomes-the-odds drama into an affecting ode to single fathers everywhere. The movie showcases Paul Walker’s range of acting talent as well as some great life lessons about being a supportive father.
Directed by Eric Heisserer
The Lazarus Project (2008)
This is certainly one of the more ‘out there’ movies from Paul Walker’s catalogue. He plays Ben Garvey, a reformed criminal who finds himself dragged back to his old ways with the classic ‘one last heist’. Needless to say it all goes horribly wrong and Ben finds himself sentenced to death.
However, despite seemingly being executed, Ben finds himself at a psychiatric hospital where is working as a groundskeeper. He is told that God has given him a second chance but he is unable to return home to his wife and daughter. Has he been given a second chance, is he in the afterlife or is there a sinister conspiracy?
Directed by John Glenn
Brick Mansions (2014)
Brick Mansions, is set in a dystopian Detroit where a particularly violent neighbourhood has a 40 foot wall built around it with the aim to protect the wider city from criminality. Known as Brick Mansions, for those who live there every day is a struggle to stay safe and avoid the many obstacles that can lure them to a life of crime.
When drug-lord Tremaine Alexander (played by RZA) manages to get his hands on a nuclear device he threatens the city of Detroit. Sure enough Damien Collier (Walker) is sent into the Bricks Mansions to rescue ex-con Lino and for them to track down and defuse the weapon that is holding the city to ransom.
Of course all is not as it seems and before they know it, they are wrapped up in a huge conspiracy that goes to the very top in the corridors of power.
Bricks Mansions is one of Paul Walker’s most underrated films. If you are looking for a cool action flick that also looks to make some important messages then this could be the movie for you.
Directed by Camille Delamarre
Into the Blue (2005)
Ahhh, The Bahamas; glorious weather, azure seas, palm trees truly a piece of heaven on earth. We meet Jared (Walker) and Sam (Jessica Alba) two divers who are thoroughly enjoying their life on the beach. One day when out snorkelling with friends they discover the ruins of a pirate ship…they also discover the wreckage of a sea plane containing bundles of cocaine.
Now, most of us would leave well alone, but this is action-thriller movie land, so of course the correct course of action is to try and retrieve the cocaine and sell it onto a local nightclub owner. You’ve guessed it the nightclub is tied up with the sea plane
This film is a reliable thriller with some really impressive underwater scenes….and the very definition of trouble in paradise
Directed by John Stockwell
Running Scared (2006)
I think it’s fair to say throughout his career Walker has appeared in plenty of movies that have plenty of twists in them. Running Scared easily sits at the top of twisty tree. Paul Walker plays Joey Gazelle a low level gangster, who is tasked with disposing of a gun that can tie the gang back to the deaths of two (albeit corrupt) policeman. A simple enough task, but when the gun goes missing Joey is in a race against time to recover the gun.
Running Scared is one of Paul Walker’s most underrated films. Check it out if you get the chance.
Directed by Wayne Kramer
Joy Ride (2001)
Joy Ride is a great thriller, written by J. J. Abrahams & Clay Tarver. With more than a little influence of the movie Duel it stars Walker as Lewis Thomas and Steve Zahn as his brother Fuller. The two are on a road trip to Colorado when they encounter on CB radio a trucker known as Rusty Nail who they decide to prank by setting up a rendezvous with the fictitious Candy Cane. However Nail kills the occupant of the motel room they have pranked him to go to.
Realising that they are in danger the two brothers find themselves being hunted by the deranged Nail.
This is a solid horror/thriller and despite a relatively quick run time (a little over 90 minutes) packs in plenty.
Directed by John Dahl
