Lee Kirwin


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.

Morgan Freeman has one of the most recognisable voices in the world, not only is his voice incredibly soothing, but it brings a certain amount of gravitas to his acting roles.

Speaking of his acting roles, he has starred in a large selection of movies, many of which are available to stream on Netflix.

In this article, I’ll be discussing Morgan Freeman’s top 46 movies on Netflix, ranking them in reverse order. You’ll be shocked at #1… but no peeking!

I’ll also show you how to access and watch each and every one of them right now.

Let’s get going Morgan Freeman fan!

How to watch these on Netflix

Morgan Freeman has a staggering 46 movies available to watch on Netflix. However, to access all of them on your Netflix account, you will need to have a little bit of help.

This is where I come in.

Each of the movies on the list will be available in a select group of countries, this is due to restrictions in place between the movie studios and Netflix.

To gain access to ALL of the movies on your Netflix account, you will need to use a VPN app.

A VPN will allow you to make Netflix think you are in another region, giving you full access to that regions Netflix library. Best of all – you don’t need a new Netflix account!

There are many VPNs available, but only a handful that I would ever recommend to you. The VPN provider at the top of my list is ExpressVPN.

ExpressVPN offers connection speeds that will make every other VPN feel like you are sitting on the back of a snail… not great when you want to stream movies in 4K.

A couple of others worth taking a look at include CyberGhost VPN and Surfshark VPN. Although I recommend ExpressVPN, it’s entirely up to you which you end up choosing.

Anyway, I digress, let’s get on to the list.

The list above is a round up of some of Morgan Freeman’s best movies, all of which are available on Netflix.

My number 1 recommendation is ExpressVPN.

They are the Shawshank Redemption of VPNs, they are simply the best and offer the fastest connection speeds, so you’ll be watching Morgan Freeman in full 4K UHD.

It is also important to note that not all VPNs work with Netflix, so choose wisely if you’re shopping around.

Now all that is left to do is grab the popcorn (does anyone actually eat popcorn at home?), open your favourite drink and get ready for a full Freeman marathon!

I would love to hear which of these 46 is your favourite. Let me know in the comments section or if your favourite isn’t listed here, which is it?
