Did Sly pay you to advertise his film?

But, yeah, I'm definitely going to be watching that.

Good first 5, but I don't view the last 5 as action stars. They're all wimps.

You don't need big muscles to be an action star. What's up with this stupid Stallone mentality? Name one of those musclebound meatheads that is actually a really good actor.

Jackie Chan by far. While most action stars of his era were basically posing while shooting a machine gun, Chan was revolutionizing the genre with his unique brand.

Better than Bale. How about Leonardo DiCaprio? He's done a few good action flicks. Or Johnny Depp? Or Al Pacino?

I'm offended that this is the only mention of Seagal thus far in the thread.

Seagal was a beast back in the day. Of course, now his never-ending stream of direct-to-DVD garbage is terrible, and he's fat, but some of em are kinda entertaining anyways. Against The Dark, in which he kind of stars (but isn't in half the movie) is such a shitty movie, but a fat leather wearing Seagal kills vampires (or zombies or whatever they are, the movie doesn't seem to know either) with a sword in it. Kind of. They basically just stand there and let him cut em up. Not much resistance.

Under Siege and Above The Law kicked ass and yeah, Seagal was badass back then.

I think people forget him about him because of his recent embarrassing movies. Attack Force might be his worst, his voice was dubbed in random parts.....and the movie was in English! I have no idea what the movie was about to this day.

Mel was awesome in the Mad Max films.

Harrison Ford is a more sophisticated action star.

Russell Crowe brings it, same with Eric Bana (see Chopper).

Christoper Walken and Michael Madsen were in a lot of great aciton movies in the 80's and 90's.

Sigourney Weaver was the first chick to fight back and kick ass (honorable mention to Linda Hamilton).

Love, Love me some Lance Henriksen.
