50 Top Action Movies Compiled

Posted: December 9, 2009 in action, america, manliness, movies, the internets, Top Ten Lists

Listed below are 50 of my friends most nominated action movie favorites, listed here in no specific order. What I need from you guys is to help me narrow this list to the Top 30. So comment and let me know what you don’t think belongs in the top 50. If the consensus view is it doesn’t belong in the top 50 it can’t be in the top 30, right?

So without further ado:

01. Terminator
02. Terminator 2: Judgment Day
03. Star Trek (2009)
04. Dark Knight
05. Fight Club
06. Iron Man
07. Die Hard
08. Die Hard With a Vengeance
09. Top Gun
10. Rambo (2008)

11. Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back
12. Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King
13. The Matrix
14. Apocalypse Now
15. Crank
16. Snatch
17. Sin City
18. Boondock Saints
19. Saving Private Ryan
20. Con Air

21. Lethal Weapon
22. 300
23. The Kingdom
24. Bad Boys
25. Bad Boys II
26. The Legend of the Drunken Master (1994)
27. The Running Man
28. Taken
29. Enter the Dragon
30. Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story

31. Mission: Impossible
32: Mission: Impossible III
33. The 5th Element
34. Man On Fire
35. The Bourne Supremacy
36. Bloodsport
37. Predator
38. Time Cop
39. Jurassic Park
40. Black Hawk Down

41. Transformers
42. Gladiator
43. Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark
44. Transporter
45. Tom Yum Goong (The Protector)
46. Jet Li’s Fearless
47. Danny the Dog (Unleashed)
48. Casino Royale
49. Goldeneye
50. Blade

Once narrowed down to 30 movies, two of the cut films will be selected to make the number 32.  They will then be placed into 8 groups of 4. I will create polls that will be placed on this site as well as my Facebook© page.  Voting on the polls will be deciding which movies move out of the group stage and into the round of 16, 8, 4, and 2. Then the losing movies will be ranked from 10 – 2.

To answer your question; Yes I’m bored. I hope to get plenty of help on this.

    Was disappointed not to see a few movies on the list. Pulp Fiction, Usual Suspects, few others. Not a bad list though, cutting 20 off isn’t easy. Except for Con Air, LOL Nick Cage

    hey I didn’t select the list. I took nominations and then narrowed it down from there. believe it or not Con Air had several nominations lol but i’m sure it will not end up in the top 30.

    What are you disappointed isn’t there?
