Best Action Movies of 80s


The Top Ten

1 Die Hard

This movie could be even today one of the biggest action blockbusters - MatrixGuy

The best action movie of not just the 80s, but of all time - Ajkloth


2 Predator

Aliens is the best, but I just knew that it would be leading the way by a longshot, so ill movie predator up a place - roblist

3 Aliens
4 The Terminator

So many awesome movies on this list... But Terminator is my favorite. It's ALWAYS entertaining, and you never get bored. The fight scenes are awesome, and the story is simple, but effective. Robots become self aware, and one of them goes to the past to kill the mother of the only man who could stop them, thus erasing his existance. This is one of the best movies ever, next to Raiders of the Lost Ark.

5 Robocop
6 First Blood

Sylvester stallone is one of a kind the best action star of all time

they drew first blood not me... - schwanie

7 Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark

This should definitely be in the top 10, if not No. 1

8 Batman
9 Ghostbusters
10 Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back

The Contenders

11 Rocky IV
12 Commando
13 Octopussy
14 Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi
15 The Killer
16 The Thing
17 Lethal Weapon
18 Conan the Barbarian
19 Rambo - First Blood Part II
20 Sheena
