Ranker Logo Ranker | Slide 1 of 17: The order of this list was determined by 2,889 votes on Ranker.com. He's been so successful it's easy to overlook how many underrated Bruce Willis roles there are. The beloved actor shocked the world by announcing he was diagnosed with aphasia - a condition that diminishes a person's ability to communicate - and would subsequently be retiring from acting. That's certainly sad news, but Willis would most likely prefer fans focus on the work he did, rather than dwelling on his illness. And what a body of work he has accumulated. The Die Hard franchise, Pulp Fiction, Sin City, The Sixth Sense, Armageddon, and The Fifth Element are among his most iconic films, adored by millions across the globe. He has worked continuously since the 1980s, so his filmography is extensive. As is always the case with a performer whose career has stretched across five decades, Willis has some underrated movies on there. Several were minor hits at the time that never quite expanded out to achieve the same acclaim as his biggest blockbusters. Others simply didn't perform well at the box office for whatever reason, despite their high quality. Anyone seeking to focus on the extraordinarily diverse work this thoroughly likable star did should consider checking out one of the following gems that didn't get the full attention they deserved.
