Taylor Lautner stars in drama Run The Tide as Rey, a young man who kidnaps his younger brother and heads to the California coast to pursue a life away from their convict mother, played by Constance Zimmer.  Zimmer is hot on the boys’ trail, though, with her ex-husband in tow, determined to keep her family together.  Lautner himself, no stranger to action movies, gives us his Five Favorite Films that celebrate both his family as well as his love of adventure.

Man on Fire (2004) 39%

I think the one film that I could watch over and over and over again –and I have — is Man on Fire. I feel like that’s a common dude answer. I feel like every dude loves that movie. Yes, the action is great, but I think that the biggest thing why I love that movie is the relationship between Denzel [Washington] and Dakota [Fanning]‘s characters. You just fall in love with that relationship and then it’s just so heartbreaking. Plus, I can watch anything Denzel. Yeah, he can do about anything and I will be there. I would say that’s probably my favorite of his.

Braveheart (1995) 78%

I have that movie where my dad, at a young age, sits you down and is like, “Son, you’re gonna watch this movie.” And you’re like, “Oh, no.” For me, that was Braveheart. That’s definitely an all time favorite. I love Braveheart, I love Mel [Gibson]. I think he’s just an incredible — he’s obviously an amazing actor — but I think he’s also an incredible filmmaker. Braveheart is way up there for me.

Gladiator (2000) 76%

Then along those same lines, probably in the same conversations where my dad said, “You’re gonna watch Braveheart,” he said, “You’re gonna watch Gladiator.” I think it’s just maybe the crazy world setting. It is so big and far-fetched and out there, but the characters are just so real and intimate, and Russell [Crowe] is just so great in that movie. I think it’s the combination of those two things that was the first thing that stabs me. I remember just the image of the hand in the wheat and how beautiful it is. The whole movie’s really beautiful. Those shots are killer.

Tommy Boy (1995) 44%

I’m going to go with one of my favorite comedies of all time, I’m gonna go with Tommy Boy. Yeah, the two of them, [Chris] Farley and [David] Spade together, are just so hilarious. I’ve seen that movie so many times. I’ve become friends with Mr. Spade and it’s just so surreal because I’ve been watching him since I was a kid. I just think he’s so talented. And so is Chris Farley. If I want to get in a good mood, I watch that movie.

The Negotiator (1998) 75%

I love this movie and a lot of people that I talk to haven’t seen it. I love this movie so much, and I always find out that nobody that I ask has seen it, so I’ve actually shown that movie to a lot of people. It’s kind of a fun one where it just keeps you on the edge of your seat the whole time and questioning what’s gonna happen next. I love movies like that. [Kevin] Spacey‘s definitely one of my favorite actors, so I’m sold with that to begin with.


Run The Tide opens tomorrow in limited release.
