5. Tom Cruise in Born on the Fourth of July- I will give Cruise credit for trying but he never quite succeeds.
4. Robin Williams in Dead Poet's Society- Williams is okay as the supporting part of the inspiring teacher but his character just does not have a lot of depth.
3. Kenneth Branagh in Henry V- Branagh is very good as Henry, although he is slightly too theatrical in a few scenes, but he also has some truly great scenes that make up for it.
2. Morgan Freeman in Driving Miss Daisy- Morgan Freeman is incredibly good, and his chemistry with Jessica Tandy is perfect. He gives an incredibly charming and entertaining performance.
1. Daniel Day-Lewis in My Left Foot- Day-Lewis is brilliant and completely compelling in the challenging role of Cristy Brown. Day-Lewis succeeds in every way and gives one of the greatest performances put on film.
