I'm with you Aliens has the better action sequences, the escape scene at the end is just awesome.

Are we talking pure action movies, or ones that technically belong to another genre but have a lot of action in them, so therefor qualify as action movies, too?

For the moment I'll assume the former:

In no particular order
A Better Tomorrow 1 and 2
Lethal Weapon
Martial Arts Of Shaolin
Aliens (I believe this is more action movie than sci-fi movie)
Top Gun
Raiders Of The Lost Ark/Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade
The Killer
The Terminator/Terminator 2: Judgement Day (same deal as Aliens)
Once Upon A Time In China
Iron Monkey
Blade
Desperado/Once Upon A Time In Mexico
Mission: Impossible 1, 2 and 3
Shiri
Ronin
True Romance
Carlito's Way
Speed
Hard Boiled
Face/Off
Bullet In The Head
Bad Boys
The Bourne Identity/Supremacy/Ultimatum
Ong-Bak
Warrior King
Merantau
Die Hard/Die Hard 4
Kiss Kiss Bang Bang
Chocolate
Infernal Affairs 1 and 2
Hero
House Of Flying Daggers
Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
Ip Man 1 and 2
Bodyguards And Assassins
The Man From Nowhere
Salt
13 Assassins

And then there's a bunch of Bond films... notably Goldeneye, Tomorrow Never Dies, Casino Royale and Quantum Of Solace. I like more Bond movies than that, but out of my favourites those are the ones with the most impressive action.

If we're talking about the latter of my choices, there will be a lot of superhero movies and sci-fi/fantasy added to that list.

I couldnt pick out a favourite, as I cant remember all the action films, but two recent ones which stand out are (both incidentally van Damme films)

Universal Soldier Regeneration
Hard Target

Love hard target.

Love a good action movie but I tend to agree that Die Hard is probably the best action movie ever.

I'd have to say the expendables 1 and 2, finally an action movie that features Stallone and Arnie fighting together and had some great lines between Arnie and Willis.

Mine favorite movie of all time is Kung Fu Panda, Its really nice action movie with great fighting Sequences in it. And the importent thing is that its a animated movie. So that watching the fighting scene are lots more intersting to see.

Hi all
There are so many good action movieslike Die Hard. However I tend to say that The RAID is the best. We are at the heart of the action and the suspense is amazing. Few people know this indonesian movie so tell your friends that it is real worth watching this movie. I have never seen this kind of action movie.
And of course please give me your impressions.

I would agree that Kung Fu Panda is vastly underrated in terms of the action in it, but I wouldn't call it an action movie. The fight between Ti Lung and the Furious Five is awesome though.

Aliens is the greatest movie-that-isn't-a-Star-Wars movie ever. However, I see it as Sci-fi rather than action. Hence Die Hard is the greatest action movie

Aliens without a doubt. After the first hour its a roller coaster thrill ride to the end.
