Best Action Movie Franchisesjared5 Any action movie that has sequel or sequels and any related movies.
The Top Ten
1 through 4 were awesome. Genisys left something to be desired but this is the best. Number 2 isn't good enough, especially since it is second to The Fast and the Furious lame ass movies - Johnnyt800
One and two were both classics, three was tolerable, but not quite as good as the others. Salvation was honestly really disappointing, and Genisys was a joke.
Gotta love The Terminator.
"Hasta La Vista. Baby. "
One of the best movie quotes ever.
THE TERMINATOR, TERMINATOR 2 JUDGEMENT DAY, TERMINATOR 3 RISE OF THE MACHINES, TERMINATOR SALVATION - jared5
Fun, exciting, and just damn cool
The best franchise of all times...
This should be number one. Terminator 1 and 2 were great, but the franchise as a whole isn't. Fast and the Furious has some good films, but some are bad. Die Hard has one terrible film. There is no bad mad max film. All of them are masterpieces.
Mad max 2 greatest action movie ever made!
The road warrior has the best action scenes since nam
I'm made this list like 5 years ago so my opinions have changed a little bit. There are only a few superhero movies that should count as action movies that's why I left them off the list. Jurassic Park is my favorite movie of all time but its not really an action film. Transformers yeah probably shouldn't be on here. Fast and Furious does but much lower down the list. G.I. Joe should not be anywhere near this list. Star Wars I guess could count as action, Number 1 to should either be Mad Max or Mission Impossible due to them being consistently good for the most part.T2 is my favorite action movie of all time,1 is good too and I even enjoy 3 but after that it went down. Die Hard should be top 5 but can't be number cause of a good day to die hard. But yeah those are just some of my thoughts on my list. - jared5
Die Hard is the best action movie ever made
Can't wait to see number 5. Should be on T.V. soon - westofohio
I'll tolerate the number three spot. But keep this in mind: Die Hard has had such an effect on anyone who has watched it. One would argue that they're all the same movie over 5 times. They're not! And the series has been consistently good, too!
Die Hard: 10/10
Die Harder: 8/10
Die Hard With A Vengeance: 7/10
Live Free Or Die Hard: 9/10
It's A Good Day To Die Hard: 5/10
I mean, most 4th movies are a joke, and Die Hard's 4th is better than most original movies. That's saying something. - MojoSpaederman
Better than jurassic park
This should be #3, behind only Die Hard and Terminator. The rare series where the movies don't just get worse and worse as they go on must must be appreciated.
Mission: Impossible: 8/10
Ghost Protocol: 10/10
Rogue Nation: 10/10 - MojoSpaederman
Iro, the incredible hulk, iron man 2, thor, captain america:the frist avenger, The Avengers and in the next 3 to 4 years, iron man 3, thor:the dark world, Captain America:The Winter Soldier, Ant Man and The Avengers 2
Marvel is best action franchise
SO MUCH ACTION!
Jurassic Park, The Lost World: Jurassic Park 2, Jurassic Park 3.
Another great and legendary Sci-Fi franchise that changed cinematography and put visual effects on much higher level - Irina2932
Number 5! Seriously! This is awesome! Come on Wolverine, Storm. This has great movies, great plot and amazing characters. Deserves number 1!
One of my favorite movie franchises. First 2 films were definitely the best but the whole franchise is great - Irina2932
X-MEN, X2 X-MEN UNITED, X3 THE LAST STAND, X-MEN ORIGINS WOLVERINE, X-MEN FIRST CLASS - jared5
Yeah! The best one
3 of the greatest films of all time
Bests of the bests
Nobody does it better than Bond!
Should be at least number 3.
How is this not number...
James bond is clearly better than mission impossible, fast n furious, die hard...
Whoever thought Michael Bay should earn a place on this list with his franchise of three-hour segments of robot-fighting and obnoxious characters is totally beyond me.
First one was good. The sequels, not so much
Alien, Aliens, Alien 3, Alien Resurrection
I can't believe this wonderful franchise was absent here. Predator movies wouldn't even exist without Alien, just like plenty of other Sci-Fi movies - Irina2932
Both crank and the transporter star Jason stathom and transport mad more movies had more box office success and had a deeper plot. Crank was strictly action to the point where it was almost unrealistic comedy. Crank deserves to be on the list just not above the transporter franchise
THE TRANSPORTER, THE TRANSPORTER 2, THE TRANSPORTER 3 - jared5
PREDATOR, PREDATOR 2, PREDATORS - jared5
Great two movies. Not really a franchise - MojoSpaederman
CRANK, CRANK 2 HIGH VOLTAGE - jared5
Should be number 1 because all 4 movies were great!
PITCH BLACK, THE CHRONICLES OF RIDDICK DARK FURY, THE CHRONICLES OF RIDDICK - jared5
My personal favorite movies because I'm Irish I can connect to it and Norman reedus is awesome to watch and I don't think fast and ferios is number one didn't care about that movie
THE BOONDOCK SAINTS AND THE BOONDOCK SAINTS 2 ALL SAINTS DAY - jared5
Up there with the greats!
One of the coolest movies about a group achieving something great
Incredible, Funny, And Action Packed
Action Packed and Suspenseful
