What are your favorite Action movies? Thriller/Action?

Lethal Weapon '87 - I was probably only 6 when I saw this in 1987. I liked it.

Lethal Weapon 2 '89 - This was an ok sequel.

(The next two [Lethal Weapon 3 '92, Lethal Weapon 4 '98] I don't like at all.)

Die Hard '88 - I liked this in 1988

Die Hard with a Vengeance '95 - I saw this at 14 and did like it

[I don't like Die Hard 2 '90 or Die Hard 4 '07 much at all]

Rambo '85 - I never saw First Blood until way late... I liked this movie in the 80s but not now (meaning Rambo)

American Ninja '85/American Ninja 2 '87/American Ninja 3 '89/American Ninja 4 '90 - I liked these movies in the early 80s and 90s but not now

Thriller Action:

What I mean is... Movies like...

Falling Down '93 - I saw this movie at 12 and liked it

Unlawful Entry '92 - I actually really liked this movie that year. It was one of my favorite movies that year at 11

Ransom '96 - I saw this movie in High School and thought it was cool

etc., etc

Die Hard will forever and always be my favorite action movie. I enjoy the whole series but the first is the greatest action movie ever. Falling Down is an amazing psychological thriller and it's probably my single favorite Michael Douglass performance.

Lethal Weapon 1 and 2 (I enjoy 3 and 4 but 1 and 2 are classics in the genre)
The Rock
The Indiana Jones films
Terminator 1 and 2
From Dusk Till Dawn
The Bourne Series (especially 2 and 3)
True Lies
Bad Boys 1 and 2
The Last Boy Scout
First Blood
Most of the James Bond films with the exception of most of Roger Moore's and the last Brosnan one.
The Killer
Hard Boiled
Air Force One
The Jack Ryan movies (Hunt For Red October and Patriot Games are amazing)

Ronin, Lethal Weapon, First Blood, Patriot Games, The Untouchables, Lethal Weapon 2, Die Hard with a Vengeance, Point Break, The Matrix, Desperado, Collateral.

That's just a few. I would have put Heat but I consider that a Crime Drama, not an action/thriller.

It's weird, I've seen the first Mad Max dozens of times, and i've seen the third Mad Max dozens of times, but i've never seen the Road Warrior.
i'll check it out eventually.

As for more action films I enjoy,

Escape From New York, Carpenter


A large percentage of the James Bond films.
