He has been active in the genres of action, drama, comedy, fantasy, horror and science fiction. After working in advertising out of college, Bruckheimer moved into film production in the 1970s. In the 1980s and 1990s, he partnered with fellow producer Don Simpson. Bruckheimer and Simpson's partnership continued until Simpson's death in 1996. Bruckheimer has produced films including ''Flashdance'', ''The Rock'', ''Crimson Tide'', ''Dangerous Minds'', ''Con Air'', ''Armageddon'', ''Enemy of the State'', ''Pearl Harbor'', ''Black Hawk Down'', as well as the ''Beverly Hills Cop'', ''Top Gun'', ''Bad Boys'', ''Pirates of the Caribbean'', and ''National Treasure'' franchises.

At the helms of his self-titled production company, his films have been distributed by numerous film studios such as Paramount Pictures, Sony Pictures and Disney, while his television works have been co-produced by Warner Bros. Television and CBS Studios. In July 2003, Bruckheimer was honored by ''Variety'' as the first in Hollywood history to produce the first and second highest-grossing films of a single weekend: ''Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl'' and ''Bad Boys II''. In 2023, ''Top Gun: Maverick'' earned him a nomination for Best Picture at the 95th Academy Awards.

His best known television series are television dramas ''CSI: Crime Scene Investigation'', ''CSI: Miami'', ''CSI: NY'', ''CSI: Cyber'', ''Without a Trace'', ''Cold Case'', ''Lucifer'', and reality competition series ''The Amazing Race'', which would spawn a franchise with international versions. For the latter, he won ten Primetime Emmy Awards.
