Jay Stay is good at what he does, but a lot of his movies are average at best. The first 2 Transporter's were good, plus Crank and Crank 2 are awesome in their mentalness.

Personally my favorite action movie is Die Hard. There are loads of great great action movies, many of them listed above, but if I suspected that one of them may be the best ever, I'd immediately ask, "is it better than Die Hard?" The answer is no

I concur.

Both about the Stathmaster & more specifically about Die Hard - for me it's the bench mark every single action film aspires to.

Die Hard instantly comes to mind, but I don't want to label one as my favourite ever. There are too many great ones, many of which have already been mentioned.

There are just to many so here is a list in no order

Bad Boys
Transformers
The Rock


Micheal Bay has got an eye for action, no question. But doesnt his fucking awfulness at putting a movie together bother you at all? Ive never made it through Bad Boys and the sequel only lasted about 10 minutes. There is love for The Rock here, but honestly, i think it is shit- Ed Harris is solid and Beihn is good value but seriously, fuck everyone else. I even really liked Transformers and again, there is awesome stuff in the sequels but Bays stupid inclusion of shitty jokes and one liners make me rage. I dont think i can enjoy his films much anymore.

Speed 


This one definitely has my vote, came here to post this! I love the added extra 20 mins on the train- I feel most movies would have ended with the bus exploding in the plane but this keeps on going, not to ramp up the adrenaline, but definitely works as a "come down" so I dont have a heart attack when it finishes. Really good action film here peoples!

My own suggestions would be Van Damme films- Universal Soldier Regeneration- how did this not get a cinematic release?! It is a really good film. I cant remember the first film so cant compare, but it definitley makes up for the TV sequels and UniSol The Return. After that is Hard Target- nothing but love for that film. And that mullet!

I do own a lot of his films on Blu Ray however I would like it if he took the jokes  and one liners out  as they do get worse however they are in the script . Bad Boys was a action comedy and it did work but transformers 2 and 3 had to much comedy that just got annoying.

Inception surprised me actually i didn't actually think that it would have that good action sequences. I like Doom that had some awesome action scenes.
