by billbrown7071 | created - 23 Feb 2015 | updated - 1 month ago | Public

This is A list of My Favorite Pure Action Movies-What I mean By Pure Action Movies are ...Movies That are Pure Action, Thats why They were made, Movies With Fighting,Martial Arts,Gun Fights,Heroes Vs Villians, Lone Heroes, Good Guy/Guys Vs Bad Bad Guy/Guys and Action Movies With The Biggest Action Stars--(Jean-Claude Van Damme-Sylvester Stallone-ArnoldSchwarzenegger-Bruce Willis-Steven Seagal-Nicolas Cage-Jason Statham-Jet LI-Wesley Snipes-Dolph Lundgren-(Stone Cold)Steve Austin)--

Now As I was making this list, I realized it was impossible to rank these movies, There are so many and There are so many good ones its just impossible to rank them, So What I did was Rank and name My Top 25(Actually 28) , I could rank my top 25 after that though it became impossible, So after my Top 25 , I ranked the rest in 3 Categories.

A's-These are IMO My favorite and Best Pure Action movies, I love and can watch these movies over and over again

B's-These are IMO Good Action movies But Not what I would call the best or my favorite, I do like these Action movies but for whatever reasons they aren't My favorites

C's-These are IMO Decent,Some Maybe even Bad Action Action movies, These Action movies are movies I've seen that I may have liked but in no way are my favorites, Some of these movies I've only seen once and may not watch again, Some are Action movies that I liked and will watch again but I may have had some major problems with them.

List Of Upcoming PURE Action Movies that I'm going to Watch and Add to this list-

The Terminator Aliens Die Hard The Fugitive Mad Max: Fury Road Casino Royale The Dark Knight Speed Terminator 2 MI4 Die Hard Franchise Bourne 1,2,3 Saving Private Ryan Hot Fuzz John Wick 1,2 First Blood Rambo 2 The Matrix Collateral Escape from New York Heat Inception The Raid 1,2 Leathal Weapon Franchise Predator Point Break Desperado The Long Kiss Goodnight Léon: The Professional Blade Bloodsport Double Impact Face/Off Kiss of the Dragon Minority Report Pitch Black Rocky 4 True Lies Universal Soldier
