Best Action Movies Ever


The Contenders: Page 2XW

21Fight Club

Brad Pitt and Edward Norton are amazing action stars! And this movie is a fine example of how amazing they are at performing!

I am yet to see a better made movie! Its but a joke that Fight Club doesn't feature in Top 10!

how is this not 1 its amazing if you haven't seen it yet... GO SEE IT - arsenal193

Would be higher but to me not a true action film

Rambo is the greatest action movie of all time, look at all the ARE rated. Gorey and thrilling, little kids even get killed in this MOVIE. This movie is based upon NOTHING BUT ACTION. In my opinion it has to be in the top ten action movies of all time, to top everything off!

Rambo is the best action movie I have ever watched. Lots of blood and guts, excellent acting on the part of Stallone and altogether a brilliant movie. This list is called "best action movies ever". Rambo is pure action. Need I say more?

Full of ARE Rated action. Unbelievable gore and Rambo's most violent movie ever (not to mention Sylvester Stallone) It is stunning what they do in this movie because

Amazing movie, I am a huge fan of military movies, and this is one of my favorites.

What! Transformer should e in top tens...! Bets movie by Michael bay and the best action movie ever released. There are many amazing fights in this movie and one thing special is the theme song is what I've done by Linkin Park which exactly matched to it. Finnaally transformers rocks! And Linkin Park forever!...

Films like Twister, Independence Day, Transformers, etc don't need to be action-comedies in order to be funny and thrilling! I wish that was a fact!

I getting hook on Megan Fox because she's a hottie and she made her breakout role in this transformers movie! Two transformers movie turn out great, but the last one Dark of the Moon didn't go so well!

Good Movie, Better Than The Sequels. - masoncarr2244

Face/Off is one of the best movies I have enjoyed both the villain and the actor are my favorites. Moreover, the story and acting all go hand in hand. I loved and I think it should have been first in the list.

Wow! Commando a former Military who lives with his only daughter. Some former military villain mess with the wrong father. A father who never gives up. Commando is one of the best movies full of weaponry and military tactics.

Arnold rocks and proves that he can do it much better than Stallone in Rambo series!

26Mad Max: Fury Road

Push this up, push this up! Easily the best action movie of the decade, and totally deserves the place up there in the top 20.

This movie is violence art. George Miller with an actual good budget can do amazing things.

As far as action goes, this is the best. There are better movies on this list, but this is a pure action movie

It really good

27The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring

Where's Soldier? Someone that movie in this list please?

28Star Wars: The Force Awakens

This movie had the most action, with booms explosions and other cool stuff. Followed by Revenge of the Sith which were only a-lot of of lightsaber battles and wars.

I haven't watched this movie! I was trying to click rush hour but it wouldn't let me. Anyways RUSH HOUR IS TOTALLY AWESOME! 11

30Lethal Weapon

Regardless of how you feel about Mel Gibson, his role as the suicidal cop Martin Riggs is spectacular in what most would call the best buddy cop movie of all time. Danny Glover also pulls his weight with some excellent, quotable lines, and the two mesh perfectly to form an unforgettable dynamic. - montreal45

31Kill Bill - Volume 1

The scene where she kills about a hundred people at the very end is so ridiculously entertaining that you don't even get grossed out by the blood. It's over the top, which somehow makes it more watchable. Anyway, the whole movie is practically all action, so this should at least be in the top 15.

Great stunt work in this. This is the best film Quentin Tarantino has done in the last 10 years.

The whole story is great. A brutal betrayal and a bloody vengeance. What's not to love? And I love how easily The Bride takes out Gogo Yubari and the Crazy 88s. And I thought these guys were supposed to be tough.

She roars she rampages and she gets bloody satisfaction!

32Casino Royale

Damn! The best bond movie after skyfall is casino royale and what the hell is it doing at 26th... And it is better than die hard 1! Daniel craig is the best the action world has got... And casino royale deserves to be in the top 5!

Casino Royale is far superior to Skyfall, it has a better story, better villains, better Bond girl(s) and no ridiculous plot holes! - petrucci75hammet

Raw Brut action, well made. Looks too good, however might not go with overall bond movies but still qualifies to be a superb action movie. The chase sequence is priceless

Ohh, Come on! Casino Royale is one of the finest action movies ever made. Pure style and class... How is it so low on the list? Please vote

33Seven Samurai

Japan has made some amazing movies and this is a fine example of how they make fine movies! Seven Samurai is without a doubt the most action-filled movie of all time! And this is saying something for a film made in 1957! Listen to me when I say, a must watch for any action film fans!

The most classic movie ever made! The movie that changes the way we think about old movies, the action is like a 2010 movie! I am telling you this movie is the greatest Japanese movie of all time!

How is this not in the top ten? This movie goes way, WAY beyond a normal action movie, with incredible characters and plot development... Not only is this the greatest action movie, this is one of the greatest movies EVER!

No doubt - this is the best action movie I have seen.

34The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug
35Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark
36The Expendables

One of the most action packed movies ever!
- sansiddh

Get big budget directors
Replace Sylvester Stallone with tom cruise. Replace Jason statham with Liam Neeson and boom you have a great action packed movie

37Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Great movie of 2014 must watch the biginning car scene I loved it well directed

38Guardians of the Galaxy
39Enter the Dragon

Bruce Lee at his prime and some brilliant fight sequences make this film a must-watch. A cult classic!

"It is like a finger pointing the way to the moon, don't concertrate on the finger or you will miss all that heavenly glory"

To try and put any movie ahead of ENTER THE DRAGON is almost like saying TotalLY LUDICROUS

Number 1 movie in the world
