Epic is one of the oldest movie genres. For more than a century since the era of silent cinema, epic movies have always managed to fill movie theaters with audiences. No movie genre can tell a hero's story as versatile, legendary, and emotional as epic movies do. This is one of the reasons why epic movies are so successful.

It's possible to find plenty of unsuccessful movies in almost any genre, but that's different when it comes to epic movies. Making an epic movie requires such a large budget and effort that no producer would attempt it without bringing together the subject, script, cast, and director that are guaranteed success. This explains why most epic movies are successful at the box office.

Each of the best epic movies of all time is a cinematic masterpiece. Almost every one of them has proven this, both at the box office and at the Oscars. Do legendary actors add value to the movie by taking part in epic movies, or do epic movies elevate the actors to the level of legends, it is difficult to answer this because it is possible to give examples of both. However, it is certain that epic movies offer a magnificent cinema experience for the audience in every aspect.

Although the popularity of epic movies peaked in the 1960s, successful epic productions were released in every era. I had to go through almost the entire history of cinema to list the best epic movies. First, I made a long list of featured epic movies, and then I selected the best of them and listed them for you. Each of the best epic movies on the list is a masterpiece. In fact, there are so many successful epic movies that are left out of the list that I feel guilty for not adding them to the list. Let's take a look at the best epic movies of all time.
