Top 10 Action Movie Stars
The Top Ten
How on Earth by the name of Jesus Christ, Sylvester Stallone isn't THE #1!? Are you INSANE!? He is the BEST among the BEST & I don't think there won't be any Mortal being for Centuries to match the Epic, Legendary Caliber of the Greatest Action Star & Physical Movie-star of the History of Mankind! - Nirmal1991USA
They got this one right - Sly and Arnold are clearly the top 2. The reason why I think Sly tops the list is because he himself created the 2 most iconic action movie characters of all time (Rocky and Rambo). He created the characters and wrote the movies. And his career has spanned so long, over 40 years, and he's STILL making great action movies. He's the king of the series. The Rocky Character is still going strong, and he was so smart to switch over to "Creed", it's a spinoff of the rocky movies, and his character is still relevant. He has another Rambo coming out, as well. And the resent Rocky/Creed and Rambo movies have been great. Then he created the "Expendables" series, and those were great too. And Escape plans. Great movies like Cliffhanger, Assassins, Judge Dredd, Demolition man, Daylight, Cobra, Get Carter, Escape Plan, Over the top, Tango and Cash.. the list goes on
Come on man bruce willis never deserves to be up their at the top. I agree he s a superb action hero but the main things in which he falls behind is his body. He can never compete with sylvester stallone or arnold. Must be sylvester at top and arnold following him. After that anyone comes they all are kids
From 70s till now - best action movie actor - AlexandrV 50 Comments
I mean...Wow! This guy is the Terminator! He's The LAST ACTION HERO! Isn't that enough for you?
He should be #1 he is the best of the best and has stole the show many times
Arnold is the poster boy for the action star. The physic the jaw line the one liners, the rest are downsized cookie cutter versions.V 36 Comments
Unlike Arnold and Sylvester Bruce can act
He's a good a tor perjod
Well I must admit sly is one of the greatest action star among others such as arnold, jakie chan and bruce lee but I consider bruce willis the best, he has something that makes you like him, he is suited for action.In all his film bruce is an average normal guy but he still manage to kick some ass.Bruce willis shows the power that common man can exert and to never underestiate anyone no matter who they are.V 15 Comments
Great actor but doesn't act he is a martial arts master
He should be number 1, but at least he's in the list. I really like his acting and think he should at least be in the number 3 spot. The others are a little too old to be acting out some of the scenes they are in, but I respect them as actors, and as well as people. There are a lot of good actors.
Jason Statham should be number one! Not only is he gorgeous and has a perfect body (because that's not what being the #1 action actor like some of these ignorant people have implied! Hello you idiots its not hottest actor its best. ) Anyways but he's also got a great voice for an action actor, he's a great actor, his all around demeanor just fits the part perfectly. Or how about the fact ANY movie hr is in is guaranteed to be a good one. Like I see his name under the information or description of the movie and just his name Tells me it'll be a good movie and it always is.
Jason Statham is a badass in real life and in movies! He does his own stunts and fight scenes and he is a triple black belt! He's like a mixture of Bruce Willis and Bruce Lee! Have you ever seen Homefront!? Until you have, YOU HAVEN'T LIVED!V 27 Comments
Come on guys what is jackie chan doing at the 3rd place oh mahn! Sly is a good action hero but he doesn't perform all his own stunts. Same with Mr. Willis! Jackie chan is the only actor in the history of mankind who is willing to die for his fans! He performs all his own stunts! Come on guys vote of jackie- A true successor of bruce lee! He doesn't need any kinda information
Jackie Chan deserves #1 because he's the only Action star that does his own stunts, almost died in the process many times, and does it well! Sly just runs around with his guns, shoots stuff, look big, and sound big like many others while having a stunt double do all their dirty work. Jackie doesn't need to look big or sound big because his action is bigger than cheesy one-liners! When it comes to hardcore action, Jackie is number 1!
Jackie is as funny as he is awesome in his movies. He is so much better than Stallone who seems like he has down syndrome when he talks and Bruce Willis is just a bad actor.
Greatest action star ever and it's no contest. Like Buster Keaton spliced with Bruce Lee, Jackie wins on the sheer amount of truly great action he has committed to the silver screen. The joyful insanity and sheer fluid grace of his fights never fail to astound. Schwarzenegger or Stallone? They are not fit to touch the hem of his lowliest garment. #1 now and always.V 48 Comments
The greatest of them all.He set the style and the action from his amazing moves fast as lighting and deadly.You could just see the electricity in his stare the incredible build up of energy he was amazing.Got to be #1.
Come on guys, bruce lee has to be number 1. It was he who made action movies, martial arts movies famous. If bruce wouldn't have been there, the world wouldn't have ever heard of all these guys mentioned in the list... He is the god of action... Undoubtedly the greatest martial artist of all time... Probably the greatest superstar who ever lived... All these guys just kids before bruce lee...
o my god pepal bruce lee is what made action movies is the one who started it all go and whatch one of his films like fist of fury or the way of the dragon or enter the dragon or big boss
Cant believe anyone would not vote Bruce Lee number 1. He tops athletic ability, charisma and influence over anyone in films let alone in action movies and he only made 4 films.V 10 Comments
Handsome and cool. He isn't a super muscle man that ordinary people will never be, he's the cool guy that always gets the girl. Every man wants to be him (and in our minds we are! )
He's Indiana Jones and Han Solo! - TheFourthWorld
He's Indiana Jones and Han Solo for crying out loud!
He does his own stunts and in my opinion is easily the best actor of all time!V 11 Comments
She's beautiful and dangerous and is exceptionally good at doing action movies. WE NEED MORE ANGIE ACTION MOVIES please
Great actress, and very good in action movies!
Why do people like her so much?!
She is the oneV 3 Comments
No doubt the greatest wrestler that turned actor of all time. He might not be number 1 but he surely deserves a spot on this list. - aeromaxx777
Dwayne is a great movie star as we all know so he should be in top 10
Rock is number 1
He is a real hero in real life he kicked everybody ass in WWEV 10 Comments
Simply for soldier bad ass movie
Soldier say no more
Soldiet. I still voted sly #1 for sure
Soldier! - AnanyaV 1 Comment
Tom Cruise is the best. He should be at least Top 3. He do his own stunts. Mission Impossible Series. Edge Of Tomorrow. Top Gun Jack Reacher etc
He does his own stunts, he's not like all of the others who are too scared to do their own stunts like hang onto an airplane
If he is not in the top 3 then we need a new GOD!
my fav movie star, top gun put his name one the mapV 16 Comments
Lethal Weapon alone should have Him in top 5. Throw Mad Max into the mix, not to mention Braveheart, and I am calling bull all over this one.
A spoiled brat. It is hard to watch his movies.
Deserves no.2 to sylvester in my opinion, sorry the rocky movies and creed+rambo just goes off the chart but mel gibsons lethal weapon and mad max gets him through to no.2
One of the best modern action stars... as realistic and vulnerable as an action hero should be.V 2 Comments
He is gevaalik at what he does he suppose to be on top of Jason Statham that's was up
Van damme is a martial artist and action hero he became famous in action ways and in the 90 he was a godfather of action films - Jalwa
I am not sure of elsewhere, but here in India, in 80s and 90s Van Damme became the most popular star from Hollywood after the release of Bloodsport. He was as big a name as Stallone and Schwarzneger. He was the favourite of at least 3 among 5 people.
Legend of martial artV 12 Comments
Clint Eastwood ain't belong on these list since he old.
I find it appalling that Clint isn't gaining recognition here, he's still and always will be the greatest Hollywood badass.
GO AHEAD, MAKE MY DAY!
It would be better to recast the expendables with better directors and better action stars. Tom cruise to replace Sylvester Stallone. Liam Neeson to replace Jason statham
I lIKE HIS MOVES, AND HIS FAST HANDS IN TAKEN 1 AND 2. HIS VOICE IS SO COOL IN FITS HIM IN HIS ROLES AND HE CAN ACT AT ANY ROLE, HE IS A BEST ACTOR AND BEST AT FIGHT SCENES I WISH HE WAS IN THE EXPENDABLES 3 OR COULD BE A PART OF THE EXPENDABLES 4 THAT WOULD BE SO COOL
Liam neeson should be in top 10. He trained batman and Jedi. He killed gang/mafia members. If he doesn't deserve to be in top 10 then no one deserves it.
Come on, u guys can't do this.. have you watched his movies? he is such a bad ass actor.. THE GREY, TAKEN, NON STOP, A TEAM ETC... these should have at least put him in the tops actually not at least must have.. he has such charismatic personality.V 8 Comments
He's James Bond, and always will be. Sets every woman's heart a flutter.
Sean should be in top five...
your mission is to take out the prime minister of fake action stunts and terrible acting. He won't be hard to miss. He looks like a mutated potato and goes by the name Vin Diesel
Very talented in action movies ( Underworld, Van Helsing, Total recall, Whiteout ) and on top of that very talented in every other kind of role like dramas, comedies, suspence. This beautiful actress deserves to move up on this list!
OH yea she is so beautiful, and talented. please remove Vin Diesel, he's a stupid potato face smugg tool.
Good actress, she can do more than just action. and so sexy.
Vin Diesel should not be on this list. he should be on the most talentless one.
She is badass in underworld +she is drop dead gorgeous! She should be in the top ten at least
He is the back bone of the action movies..he should be in the top 3 rank
My favorite actor of all time. - letdot52
Batmans awesome. Where is heath ledger on the list? Easily best movie of all time is dark knight and Christian bale is the lead!
He is the one
Love him I have a question vin diesel has the best lines he's strong very very funny why isn't he #1
Vin Diesel is just amazing. He nails every role he plays. And he's gorgeous.

If you don't vote Chuck Norris up he's going to roundhouse kick you in the face.
When chuck Norris does a push up, he pushes the earth down
Chuck norris should be number 1!V 8 Comments
Actor, may be not that much, but action? Oh yeah he knows how to do that. He's got so awesome martial arts style and executes them so freakishly well. I like his style more than Jackie, no offense. He's more brutal, interacts with more people in combat scenes. And remember he doesn't have only Hollywood movies, got a lot good old Chinese too.
Jet Li should be in top tens. Those who are saying that he can't act go watch fearless first. He is a total package.
Jet li is so awesome
Jet li is the best in action specially in fighting styleV 6 Comments
The original cowboy heroe
I love his movie called on deadly ground
Seagal is killer he should be in top 10
He one of the greatest of the late 80s and 90s, a big a name as Arnie, Vam Damme, Stallone and Norris. How isn't he higher? He also has an eighth grade black belt
Sigourney is a very talented actress. She looks wonderful in serious Drama films but in Action/Sci-Fi she is the Best. Alien franchise became classic thanks to her brilliant acting and charisma - Irina2932
Ripley in Aliens, easily the best action hero.
A Better Tomorrow, A Better Tomorrow II, The Killer and Hard Boiled. He is the coolest action star, super amazing in the Hong Kong movies he was in.
