Jerry Maguire (1996) ; definitely his all around best performance/movie combo. in fact, it's my #1 movie from Tom Cruise and definitely one of his strongest performances.
for a movie I don't care for, although used to be a big fan of it, I thought Cruise gave a performance outside of the norm for him in Collateral (2004). but ill give it a vote for now since we are talking performance and not movie quality.
I ended up voting for... Jerry Maguire/Collateral/Valkyrie.
