Favorite Action Hero Movie List From BuzzSugar Community

Movie List: Reesiecup's Favorite Action Heroes

The following list is from Movie List group member Reesiecup, who posted it in the BuzzSugar Community.

Growing up, I would watch action movies with my dad all the time. The explosions, car chases, and elaborate ass-kickings still entertain me to this day. Some movies are a little cornier than others. I'm waiting for a list challenge for favorite action movies.

My favorite action heroes:

10. Will Turner, Pirates of the Caribbean — Okay, so he's not a true "action hero" per se. But I can't lie. The sight of Orlando tossing around a sword made my heart skip a beat.


9. Iron Man, Iron Man — A charismatic, narcissistic super hero? I dig it. And he has so much less emotional baggage than #6.

8. Neo, The Matrix Trilogy — I had to include Neo. He's The One, after all. It takes a lot to play a convincing machine gun-wielding, mind-bending savior of mankind (and against a green screen no less. Yes, King Leonidas got heavy consideration but I favored a few other mythical men below . . . ).

7. Maximus, Gladiator — Simply stated, his performance echoes in eternity.

6. Batman, Batman Begins — Gone are the days of the lip gloss, bat suit with nipples, and laughable dialogue. Batman has graduated to a legit caped BAMF.

To see Reesiecup's top five, just


5. Achilles, Troy — Take away the sweat and loin cloth and you have that perfectly chiseled Brad Pitt with a tan. If that's not incentive enough to earn him a spot on this list, I don't know what is.

4. The Terminator, Terminator movies — Just your average cyborg next door who keeps coming back.

3. Sigourney Weaver, Aliens — Not your typical damsel in distress.

2. The Bride, Kill Bill Vol. 1 & 2 — C'mon. Who would dare cross Uma Thurman now? She will cross the Atlantic just to mark you off her list.

1. Jason Bourne, The Bourne Triology — Who would've thought that Matt Damon would be such an action stud? He's like the MacGuyver of killing. He could kill someone with a pencil. And if the thought of Jason Bourne with a pencil makes my blood pressure increase slightly, he deserves to top this list.

i'm a little surprised achilles made it on here to begin with (i would have chosen han solo), but kudos on the bride as your 2nd choice!

I second Akasha for Aragon. And Achilles?? Really? Might as well say Puss in Boots from the Shrek series. :) On second thought, I'd take Puss any day.

I will have to argue your Terminator for Viggo Mortensen's Aragon. Hot, sweaty, the King of the Realm of Man, and maintained fidelity to an elf even though he thought she was gone. Plus, he rode horses and kicked butt with a sword. And lets face it way hotter than Arnold.
