Top 5 Best Action Movie In All Time

As long as there are movies, there will be action movies. No one pretends to be a romantic lead when they’re a kid, or a damsel in distress. They all want to punch, and shoot, and run. What’s more fun than a chase sequence? Here’s our unscientific look at the 20 best action movies of all time.

1


First Blood (1982)


John Rambo would become increasingly cartoonish as the sequels went on, but in the original, he was just a scared veteran trying to survive out in the real world.



2


Kill Bill: Vol. 1 (2003)

The second film is more dialogue-heavy, but the first half is essentially nonstop action … and it’s a good thing the Crazy 88 fight is in black and white, because it’d almost be too bloody to watch otherwise. 



3

The Raid 2: Redemption (2014)

The Raid was more frenzied, but the sequel (also written and directed by Gareth Evans) got grand, introducing an intricate crime-drama plot. Didn’t matter: Redemption is brilliantly violent, a ballet of broken bones, perfect punches and crazy car chases.



4

Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation (2015)


You can’t go wrong with any in this series – though it has only gotten better as the years have gone along – but the introduction of Rebecca Ferguson to this series just amped up the emotional stakes.



5


The Bourne Ultimatum (2006)

What should have been Jason Bourne’s final adventure is a thrilling, satisfying conclusion to this kinetic trilogy. Director Paul Greengrass and star Matt Damon permanently reshaped how we think of the globetrotting espionage thriller. James Bond is still playing catch-up.
