There are times when the only thing you want to do is sit down and watch some great action movies. As this is a broad genre with a lot of different themes and categories, from more of a fantasy action movie like The Last Witch Hunter to a classic spy James Bond movie like A View To A Kill, there is something here for everyone to enjoy.
What to Look For
For many people, the action movie has to have a hero you can get behind and cheer on as he or she defeats the bad guys. A great example of this type of action theme is found in the Bruce Willis series of Die Hard movies, with an interesting international twist in A Good Day to Die Hard.
Of course, there are other classic good guys in many different action movies. Arnold Schwarzenegger in Collateral Damage is an ideal movie for true action movie lovers, but he is also found in a range of different movies with the same themes, including the more sci-fi themed Eraser.
Other top actors to watch for include Steven Segal, Jean Claude Van Dame, Harrison Ford, and Bruce Lee. For a female lead you want to get behind and cheer, plan to watch G.I Jane for the first time, or watch it again for your favorite action scenes.
Planning for Top Action Movies
There are so many classic action movies or new releases; it can be difficult to remember all the different movies you want to watch. It is a great idea to keep a list when you think of a movie or hear about one in conversation.
Keep in mind; sometimes you may be able to find an action movie you have not seen and find it becomes one of your favorites. For a newer release that is an action comedy crime movie, check out 2 Guns, featuring Mark Wahlberg and Denzel Washington.
