Best Action Movies and Sequences

Post by Shocka on Tue Jul 05, 2011 11:08 am

Having seen Transformers 3 last week, it got me to thinking about my favourite action movies and sequences. Specifically big blockbuster guns-and-explosions action, not necessarily martial arts (which is dominated by Eastern cinema) - what are some of your fav action flicks and sequences? Some of mine:

- The Terminator and T2 - phenomenal chase sequences and heightened, aggressive violence throughout, these are classics for a reason

- The Matrix - the sequels dulled its appeal a little but there's no debating how amazing the original film was, with its slowmo-enhanced fights and gunplay

- Eraser, with its ridiculous railgun action sequences, and nutty stuff like the skydive sequence and the zoo crocodile adventure. The quality of the film is debatable but the action sequences are strong

- The Killer and Hard-Boiled, with their explosive gunplay. I prefer The Killer over Hard-Boiled although the latter got more recognition in the west, but they both have explosive finales with lengthy and impacting shoot-outs, alongside the interesting and sympathetic characters.

I've always loved the beginning of Demolition Man from the flight in over the burning Hollywood sign through to the HQ of Simon Phoenix being Demolished.

Agree with the Matrix - the building foyer scene is amazing
The battle scenes in 300 are also unreal

But for me the scene that tops my list is the beach landing in Saving Private Ryan - still probably the most amazing action scene I have seen on the big screen to date.
