Lee is an avid 80's action fan classing 300, Predator and Terminator among his favourites. When he's not binging movies he can be found keeping fit, attending Comic Con and wearing Star Wars socks of all things.
The Legendary actor Johnny Depp has starred in some brilliant movies in his time. He has also starred in some major flops too, but we will forget about those films for now.
In this article, I will be showing you the leading 36 Johnny Depp films available to watch on Netflix, and how to access them no matter where in the world you may be.
But first, let me show you how to unlock all of the movies on this list for your Netflix account.
How to watch these on Netflix
In an ideal world, you would be able to work your way through this list of Johnny Depp’s best movies without a problem.
However, this isn’t the case.
To access all of the movies on this list, you will need some help.
Each movie on this list is only available for a select group of Netflix regions, so you may find that most of Johnny Depp’s films aren’t on your Netflix library, which sucks really.
But, there is a little hack you can use to give you unrestricted Netflix access, that is to use a magic app called a VPN.
There are lots of VPN apps to choose from but the best you can use is ExpressVPN, not only do they offer the world’s fastest streaming speeds, but they are one of the most tried and tested VPNs out there.
Once you’ve signed up you simply connect to the country the movie is available in and then head over to Netflix. As if by magic, you’ll now have access to the Netflix content from that country.
If you want to do some more research, then check out Surfshark VPN and CyberGhost VPN too, who you pick is up to you!
