First Blood (1982)
John Rambo became increasingly comic-like with the sequels, but in the original he had only scared veterans trying to survive in the real world
Kill Bill: Vol. 1 (2003)
The second film is more dialogue-driven, but the first half is essentially non-stop action … and it's good that the Crazy 88 fight is in black and white because it's almost too bloody would be to look at him otherwise.
The Raid 2: Redemption (2014)
The Raid was angrier, but the sequel (also written and directed by Gareth Evans) became magnificent and led to an intricate crime- Drama conspiracy. Anyway: Redemption is brilliantly violent, a ballet of broken bones, perfect punches and crazy car chases.
Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation (2015)
You can do it With none in this series, you can not go wrong – even though it has gotten better with the years – but the introduction of Rebecca Ferguson in this series has only increased the emotional stakes.
The Bourne Ultimatum (2006)
What should have been the final adventure of Jason Bourne is an exciting, satisfying end to this kinetic trilogy. Director Paul Greengrass and star Matt Damon have permanently transformed what we believe in the world-famous spy thriller. James Bond is still catching up.
John Wick (2014)
Keanu Reeves' first of two masterful franchises on this list, John Wick gave us a sad 21st-century assassin who did not allows his grief to shoot every bad guy up close.
Enter the Dragon (1973)
Bruce Lee was popular before this film, but that sent him to the stratosphere. Well done from start to finish and absolutely relentless. The best part is that there is no weapon in the entire movie.
The Killer (1989)
The career of John Woo in Hollywood was not as sparkling or consistent as the fans had hoped, but this peak of the late 1980s remains a glorious salute to melodramatic conspiracy and poetic shootouts. Chow Yun-Fat for a Wild, Soulful Assassin – and Never Forget The Killer is the place where Woo began his obsession with dove-filled action scenes parodied throughout Jump Street to Scary Movie 2 .
Oh, do not dare that as an action movie. The existential fear of Ridley Scott's original is replaced by James Cameron's brand intensity, and although this has aliens and spaceship, this is a concentrated dose of thriller mania, as you'll find. You hold your chair when you think about it, right?
Mad Max: Fury Road (2015)
George Miller has been considering a new Mad Max movie for years, spending that time with every possible permutation of a chase sequence. This film remains exciting, almost insane, four years later.
Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (2000)

Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991)
If the first part was more of a grim thriller, then In T2 director James Cameron turned on the action spectacle. (This happens when you have a much bigger budget.) This continuation of the new CG technology in the early '90s posed a challenge that other blockbuster filmmakers could not answer.  13
Yes, the chases are as amazing as you've heard, but it stands out how good that is as a cop method. Steve McQueen was an incredible movie star and he has never been better than here.
The French Connection (1971)
Popeye Doyle is the perfect action star for the 70s: grizzled, cranky, morally compromised, not in the least sympathetic, but absolutely adamant to get the bad guy, too if there are reasons that he does not necessarily understand. Gene Hackman was at this time on the absolute peak of his powers.
Seven Samarai (1954)
Hollywood rewrites Akira Kurosawa's masterpiece as The Magnificent Seven . It could not be compared: Seven Samurai is not just an epic of scale and scale, it's one of the most emotional nuances of action movies, with a host of characters to watch out for.
Michael Mann's epic is the culmination of what he has worked throughout his career; The years after that still feel like his own answer. Everyone remembers the diner scene, but today the bank robbery sequence feels even more like a magic trick.
The Matrix (1999)
The Wachowskis dreamed up an incredible sci-fi dystopia and Keanu Reeves cast an everyman who discovers that he is the chosen one to humanity from the tyranny of machines has to liberate. The Matrix should not have worked, but from bullet-time technology to the film's trenchcoat aesthetic, it became an era of pre-millennial action-making filmmaking.
The Hard (1988)

The Dark Knight (2008)
Not only the best superhero movie, The Dark Knight could also be the quote: "Why so serious?" "They either die as a hero or They live long enough to see themselves as villains.

Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981
A Return to Old Action Series, Raiders of the Lost Ark is bold but also completely electric, the film is perfectly constructed and rarely breathes, and in Indiana Jones, Harrison gave Ford to the children of the 80s her signature hero – even if he does not like snakes.
