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.


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.


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. 


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.


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.


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.
