Top 10 Action Movies
The Best Action Movies
While some movies are made with lofty artistic intentions and others with a specific social agenda, certain films are all about settling in with a bag of popcorn to watch the bad guys get their butts kicked. GAYOT's Top 10 Action Movies fall firmly within the latter category. From fierce, sword-wielding women to motorcycle-riding androids with attitude, our favorite flicks are populated by larger-than-life characters who know how to deliver a punch (and, often, a punch line). However, these films aren't all brawn and no brains. Among our top choices, you'll find Academy Award-winning movies from critically acclaimed directors like Steven Spielberg and Christopher Nolan. So whether you prefer fast-paced shoot-em-ups or something a little darker and more demanding, you're sure to find the perfect picks for your next Saturday night movie marathon.
