Best Action Movies Ever

Anything with action, baby. That's really good, of course.

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Equilibrium

The action in this movie is out of this world! Its unique, and fast, and so, captivating. Not a real commonly heard-of movie, but I recommend if you haven't seen if, take the time, spend the money, its worth it! - heather

This is action on a scale you have never seen before. Without a doubt one of the greatest action movies of all time. This movie not only movies fast but doesn't have a single dull moment.

amazing action at its best, the story is gripping the action and effects are awesome what more do you want?

This movie should be number one. It is filled with action and some great compassion

22 Transformers

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!

Good Movie, Better Than The Sequels. - masoncarr2244

Far above the sequels and other Bay films.

23 Face/Off

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.

24 Commando

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!

25 Mad 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

Transformers is better than this? Really?

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

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

27 Star 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.

28 Kill 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!

29 Hard Boiled

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

30 Lethal 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

31 Troy

The choreography of the fights in this movie are top-notch, incredibly unique, and eye catching. - heather

This is a great movie according to me. Because it shows the power of a man. Even he is the only person who lives for himself and his group. Mostly I like the attitude of the Achilles. That's really great

I'm surprised no one else has voted for this movie masterpiece I mean sure it has 1 or 2 sex scenes but I just fast forward this movie is a heck of a lot better than die hard, terminator 2 but not the matrix! :D ;D peace out!

It is one of the best movies I have ever seen

32 Casino 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

Skyfall best of all time.. yeahh top 3#

33 Seven 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.

34 The Expendables

One of the most action packed movies ever!
- sansiddh

I watched all 3 and they're all awesome for a teen like me! - Neonco31

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

35 The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug
36 Captain America: The Winter Soldier

A very smart and savvy espionage, action flick, the story was suspenseful and elaborate, the action scenes were far more violent and brutal than expected for a Disney film, probably the best action sequences of all the mcu movies...this is on par with any of the great shoot em up movies around.

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

The best mcu movie of all time

An action film that makes you question right and wrong. if your not a philosophy buff, you will still like the action especially when you realize it uses the long forgotten art of practical effects, instead of cgi. - Frouze

37 Star Wars, Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back

Hands down the best of the Star Wars movies.

How is this down here?!?!?!

38 Guardians of the Galaxy
39 Captain America: Civil War

It's gonna be good. Definitely gonna be good because of the reviews.

This movie sucks the action is terrible

Get it higher, higher up on this list! - LarkwingFlight

Top 20 for sure - Triceratops

40 Enter 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

Its good because its free my mind
