If I say sweet action movies, what comes to mind?
bill and ted’s excellent adventure
or point break
In no particular order:
Terminator 2 and 3
Die Hard 1, 2, and 3
Kill Bill 1 and 2
Indiana Jones 1, 2, and 3
Enough sequels for you?
All this came to mind within 10 seconds
All four Alien movies
The Usual Suspects
The Italian Job
Star Wars (all 6 of varying likeness levels)
All 3 Rambo movies.
Bourne Identity/Supremacy – I love spy movies
Spy Game – See above
Aliens/Alien Ressurection – Cool effects, great action, thrilling storyline
The Usual Suspects – Kevin Spacey rocks, and the script was extremely well written
Die Hard – Just good solid action with plenty of comic relief
Sin City – Needs no explanation
Kill Bill 1&2 (1 more than 2 though) – Bikes, babes, swords, Japanese stuff, anime, Lucy Liu…
From Dusk Till Dawn – great road movie, and Cheech Marin in three different roles.
Heat – Al Pacino + Robert DeNiro = a rockin movie. And Val Kilmer didn’t ruin it either.
The Fugitive – Kimble: “I didn’t kill my wife!” Gerard: “I don’t care!” Everything done just right.
I also liked Harley Davidson and the Marlboro Man, mostly because it was so campy. Campy can be fun sometimes. And it had motorcycles. I like just about anything with motorcycles.
I honestly wouldn’t consider Apocalypse Now to be an action movie. Not in the classic sense anyhow. Although I suppose it’s forgivable considering you didn’t put any real thought into it.
As for me:
The French Connection
C’era una volta il West
Buono, il brutto, il cattivo, Il [while it was a western it did inspire many action films and others alike with Sergio Leones infamous use of camera angles]
Planet of the Apes [1968 version, obviously]
Any James Bond movie
Enter the Dragon (absolute classic)
