It's an oldie, but man is it a goodie! This movie is a classic. - heather

Old is Gold, No one can make this kind of movie, Particularly that Race, No words to describe

47 Braveheart

Great movie it is heart touching mel gibson done a excellant job in this movie

48 The Expendables 2

Why in rank 20? This movie is perfect, cool, and at least top 5
With Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Arnold Schwarzenneger, Bruce Willis, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Dolph Lundgren, Jet Li, and of course CHUCK NORRIS!. This movie sequels just great too. And the next movie with Nicholas Cage, Wesley Snipes, and maybe Steven Seagal and Mel Gibson too!. The fight action in this movie just great too, Sly Vs Van Damme, Jason Statham Vs Scott Adkins, and just great to see Chuck Norris with his king cobra jokes!

49 Pulp Fiction

I looked at imdb and saw that it was so high up and I'm thinking wha...? Then, one friday night I watched it and it overtook the Dark Knight to become my favorite film of all! I'd never thought I'd be a fan of John Travolta... Until now!

REAL MEN - this is THE action movie. Are you gonna let Transformers and all that other crap outrank this classic?

A great movie in general. If you haven't seen it, make it your next Friday night movie.

Do you call this a "movie". This is worst story, insane conversations don't ever think of watching this. Real waste of time.

I said, does he look like a bitch?

50 Speed

Easily Keanu Reeves best acting role (which is unfortunately still a bit cheesy and amateurish), Speed delivers one of the most intense thrillers ever contructed. Every exchange of words is filled with an appropriate amount of tension, and the film's villain Howard Payne rivals Die Hards Hans Gruber as the most diabolical terrorist in the action movie genre. - montreal45

Great classic action movie that helped define an era. Sure, Keanu didn't quite have the acting chops but Hopper and Bullock made up for that with the appeal and power of their performances. This defined the 90s action movie. I wish they still made action movies like this.

What I love about speed is the fact that every character is likeable and it's a movie that everyone can love. All of the action it has and my 60 year old mother loves it as much as I do!

Dark knight is the best action movie ever but this is really good to

51 The One

Jet lee is really looking just superb in this movie. And the action sequences of this movie really makes me crazy about it.

Come on man this can't be your favourite action film.. There are many films which are way way better than this one. I love Jet Li but this film is not that great, sorry.

Jet Li is the most underrated actor of all time! and this movie follows!

Jet Li, is the greatest action hero of all time and should be praised!

52 Live Free or Die Hard

Action means car chase, explotion, loud noise and of course some kick ass!

This movie provides all, I love this movie a lot, I watched it for many2 times.. I like all Die hard series too, and Matrix was even nice, but you all choose Gladiator for 1st?
I bet many Chicks are here, eh?


53 Desperado
54 Ong Bak

Tony Jaa does what others can only pretend to do, with wires and special effects.

He's jaw-dropping.

Tony Jaa is simply an comparable and upcoming actor... he is a perfect mua thigh fighter who don't need too much of a computer work... anyone can wait a year for his new release

I like ong bak movie, so when the new one ong bak movie will come. I hope the good one action will come. Thank

Amen. he is like the son of jackie chan, Bruce lee and chuck norris. - louiethefly
