    Default Top 25 Action Heroes In Movie History

    If you couldn't guess, or disagree with #1 then I feel sorry for you. It truly was the only logical choice.

    First, I wasn't sure what action heroes meant. I was thinking like GI Joe--cause I think that's what they used to call him. Ah, a childhood of commerical exposure.
    Second, I would never have guessed Bruce Willis.
    Third, now that I understand the concept, I can't believe they left off Steve McQueen (Bullitt) or maybe Charles Bronson or Billy Jack, or any of the cowboy heroes. There's definitely an age bias here.

    That's all BS. Chick Norris should be number one no questions asked. Chuck Norris is the greatest whether it comes to action movies or tiddlywinks. Top Dog should have won the Oscars in 1986 and Walker Texas Ranger should have won every single Emmy during its run and also for a couple years after.
    You do the math..... I'll do the alfredo!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!

    The first thing that I thought for #1 was Arnold in the Terminator movies. I don't see how you think Bruce Willis in Die Hard is such an obvious choice as #1. I also think William Wallace should have made the top 25.

    I definitely agree Stardust, but I wasn't going to be greedy, since he was somehow left out of the top 25 altogether.

    Steven Seagal, Curt Russell (not for this movie, maybe for Tombstone), and Peter Weller RoboCop don't even belong on the list. I don't know if I'd put Bruce Willis (any diehard movie) at #1, but it's not a terrible choice. Sorry Jensen, it certainly wasn't the "obvious choice" for me.

    If Mel Gibson is gonna be in there, it's got to be for Braveheart, not road warrior.

    Bruce Lee is underrated, and so is Jean Reno (The Professional)

    Where is Jet Li? That he didn't make the list, but Seagal did is sad a pathetic.
