heat is a thriller for me, far to refined to be an action film.

I can't say if one of them is the best or whatever, but they're without a doubt up there. Great performances (if you ignore that Keanu Reeves is always like that) and great action.

yep, I still with my original pic...

in terms of pure "action" it has to be The Matrix...

that movie changed the way action scenes were filmed, it was groundbreaking...
