Kill Bill: Quentin Tarantino at his best. Uma Thurman kicked a** and was better than most action heroes.
Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Amazing effects and great action. One of the best films to come out of HK in the last decade.
House Of Flying Daggers: Beautifully shot and with great sound effects. Every rain drop was audible. Poetry in motion!
Sholay: One of the all time best spaghetti westerns to come out of India. Best screenplay, super action, 70 mm entertainment and of course, Amitabh Bachchan!
Deewar: Although not that much of an action film, the godown action sequence with Peter is so memorable that I’d list the film only for that one fight. And again, of course the angry young Vijay.
Enter the Dragon: The first of the martial arts biggies from Hong kong to throw up a big hollywood star, the legend Bruce lee.
Rocky: Raw power coupled with sex appeal gave birth to the ultimate action star Sylvester Stallone and the underlying emotional turmoil of his character makes the film a dramatic treat.
Desperadoes: A small budget film with typical Mexican spaghetti action and the chemistry between its lead pair Antonio Banderas and Salma Hayek took the film to another level.
Phool Aur Kaante: Rise of another action star Ajay Devgan. I still remember his entry in it, straddled on two superbikes.
Robot: Not only am I a huge fan of the superstar Rajnikanth but also this is the first Indian film I saw with action sequences that had such extraordinary special effects.
Dabangg: Salman Khan on an adrenaline high! Loved the action and his style. Have seen it thrice and wouldn’t mind seeing it again.
Rambo: Again a franchise of Sly Stallone which was top class muscle and action with a back story of a misled mercenary.
Ghayal: No action list can be complete without Sunny Deol. Street fighting with raw emotions and no frills, cables and special effects. Pure ‘Jat’ power.
XXX: Van Diesel hits paydirt with this high octane action flick. Perfect blend of high class car muscle, sexy chicks and steroid bodies!
All James Bond Movies: When it comes to cool action, gizmos, style and sex, you can’t beat Bond!
Terminator: Arnold Schwarzenegger. Big body, big action, big entertainment!
Ghajini: Boy next door to pure muscle. Aamir never fails to surprise. Built a body of dreams! Just to see him shirtless I would see Ghajini, and no, I have no such tendencies!
